Ultimate Analog Matrix Modular Synthesizer
The XILS 4 emulates a prototype that was never released, the EMS VCS4, based on two integrated, interlinked and interacting VCS 3 (Synthi) cores. XILS also coupled them with the famous 256 analog polysequencer.

Important note : XILS 3 comes included.

In the XILS 4, you can connect everything with everything, and you get more than 1140 possible different connexions per patch.

It is an endless source of inspiration for those who want to go deep into the heart of Analog Modular Synthesis.

Included in the package is the 2nd huge Pin Matrix, and its numerous additional modules including: Envelopes, LFOs, S&H, Voltage Processor, Pitch Tracker, Transient etc.

There is also the recreation of the unique and extremely powerful 256 analog Polysequencer, intimately tied to the synthesis engines.

Add to that the analog Chorus (with its 3 modes) Delay and Phaser, plus the vintage Spring Reverb, and the full picture of what the XILS4 is capable of emerges.
