How analog and vintage can a VST synth like the XILS 4 (expanded) emulation of the Synthi / EMS VCS3 sound? Well, having worked with synthesizers both analog and digital for more than 30 years, when I finally got XILS-4 loaded in my DAW, I was blown away by its incredible (balanced) fatness and pleasant detail and liveliness of tone, which make it incredibly hard - and mostly pointless - to distinguish it from a hardware analog synth. It also immediately brought back fond memories of the first analog synths I owned, back in the 1980s.

The raw sound of a Synthi can take on any of the big classics, with its own peculiar characteristics of course. And the XILS-4 emulation, with its polyphony, PWM, the additional envelopes, a dedicated LFO, a S&H and other options that didn't exist on the original models, is a true "analog" beast.

Normally, designing sounds for synthesizers is not my trade. However I have been doing it for 30 years for my own productions, yet without ever publishing a commercial soundset. Once I started programming the XILS-4 VST, searching for the classic sounds that I craved, I got totally carried away, ending up with a few hundred quality presets! :)) I figured it would be a sin not to make these available to others. So here is my first commercial soundpack!

Take a listen to the demos, and get the sounds you may have a use for. There are presently 2 banks of synth presets: SynthetiX Vintage Space (FX, Pads and "Space" oriented) and SynthetiX Vintage World (Bass, Synth and Percussion oriented). Then there is also a bonus bank (the same set added to both banks) SynthetiX Vintage Colors, which consists of only audio FX presets, to be used for when using XILS-4 as a FX insert (for its creamy filter, ring modulator, or vintage sounding chorus, phaser and/or delay).

Getting the bundle (scroll to bottom of page) is the most advantageous, and will get you all 307 presets for less than 10 cents-euro each.

After completing your purchase, you will be able to download the files immediately.

You will find more details on each bank below.

SynthetiX Vintage Space



+ 165 Presets for XILS-4: 144 Synth Presets, 21 Audio FX Presets

+ Sounds: 7 Bell, 6 Brass, 64 Special FX, 29 Ambient/Atmos FX,
10 Mallets, 13 Pad, 9 Pluck, 2 Strings, 4 Woodwind

+ Classic vintage sounds and essential toolkit sounds

+ ALL presets with velocity sensitivity programmed

+ ALL presets with vertical & horizontal stick, and modulation wheel programmed

+ ALL presets with gain adjusted for easy and safe browsing

+ Includes manual with directions and tips for installation and use.



The main theme of this bank is effects and "space" sounds, with the addition of lush pads, brass, winds, bells and some surprisingly realistic and versatile mallet sounds.

Special attention has been given to make each preset instantly ready for use, with all the main controls programmed (i.e. with appropriate settings for velocity, modwheel, pitch-bend and the amazing joystick), and with all relevant parameters programmed and/or available with a useful setting (e.g. with appropriate and immediately useful settings for the effects, LPF/HPF, and portamento).

Also, presets have been leveled so that peaks are at an average of TP -3 dBFS (with some variation, especially if effects are switched on or off), so that browsing through the presets of a bank will not cost you your speakers and (more importantly) keep your ears safe.

The Synthi's FX sounds have made history, and you will find a great number of those classical sounds in one form or another in this bank, with all parameters and controllers ready for you to be personalized for your tracks. The presets included are all musical FX, to be used for musical tracks, not just for foley (although a number of these could surely be suitable for that as well).

The extra features of the XILS-4 that expand on the Synthi's original options also allow for some deep, lush pads and rich brass sounds that should feel perfectly at home in any electronic / ambient track and/or soundtrack.

This bank comes with a bonus bank "SynthetiX Vintage Colors", of 21 Audio FX presets, aimed at making XILS-4's most useful effects ready to be played immediately.


Demo Tracks

Note: Only moderate natural reverb was used on individual tracks, and mild multiband compression and wideband limiting on the masters. NO other processing on individual tracks (i.e. NO compressors, EQ, chorus, delays, etc..), only XILS-4 internal LPF/HPF and FX were used. All FX, Synth and Pad sounds come from the SynthetiX Vintage Space bank. The sounds for drums, percussion and bass parts come from the SynthetiX Vintage World bank. All sounds were played using only the common keyboard controls incl. modwheel and pitch-bend, and the joystick as programmed.

You could call this a bank of "bread and butter" sounds with a focus on bass, synth and percussive sounds, except that any sound made on the XILS-4 Synthi emulation is never quite just "bread and butter", and always offers some extra character or options that make it possible to use it in unique ways, mostly impossible to do on other analog synths.

Special attention has been given to make each preset instantly ready for use, with all the main controls programmed (i.e. with appropriate settings for velocity, modwheel, pitch-bend and the amazing joystick), and with all relevant parameters programmed and/or available with a useful setting (e.g. with appropriate and immediately useful settings for the effects, LPF/HPF, and portamento).

Also, presets have been leveled so that peaks are at an average of TP -3 dBFS (with some variation, especially if effects are switched on or off), so that browsing through the presets of a bank will not cost you your speakers and (more importantly) keep your ears safe.

Many of the sounds will bring to mind classic synth sounds, with a distinct Synthi character and the rich fat analog emulation of the XILS-4.
