Xenophone Advanced Analog Mono Synth Xenophone Advanced Analog Mono Synth

 

The Xenophone has three oscillators, two subs, four ring modulators, one multimode VCF and analog distortion, all based on discrete analog circuits followed by a high quality stereo digital delay and reverb. The extensive modulation capabilities of the sound engine plus the warm and unique character of Xen's filter enriched by built-in analog distortion make it the best choice for creating deep basses, aggressive leads, transparent and crisp synth lines, acid sequences, complex arpeggios, punchy percussive sounds, extreme SFXs and more. Besides the synthesis capabilities, it can be used as a powerful audio processor to colorize an external input signal by analog filter, distortion and DFX.

26 encoders and 27 buttons put all the major parameters easily reachable with no menu diving. The Encoders smoothly turn and provide you 96 steps per rotation that mimic pot's feeling and sweep range. The layout is designed in a way to be simple and intuitive. Using 88 LEDs and a free-angle OLED display, it is easy to get the idea of the current preset at a glance. Master Tempo and all LFOs have blinking LEDs that show the BPM and rates. The presets can be previewed without external keyboard using 3 buttons in 3-octave range or pre-defined notes. User interface is easy to learn and creative with no useless bells and whistles. You can get a huge sound out of the box only with a few tweaks and changes.

Xenophone can function as a standalone instrument or fully programmable synth. It responds to the standard MIDI messages plus dedicated CC and NRPNs. The maximum implemented resolution in NRPN mode is 12bit, 4096 steps for filter frequency that provides super smooth sweep over the frequency range in compare to 127 steps CC standard! 

The computer integration is an important feature of a modern synth that plays vital role in the studio. Xenophone comes with a software editor called: XEditor. Using this editor you can control and automate every parameter of the sound engine remotely via MIDI and storing your patches on your PC and vise-versa. It also helps you in deep and precise editing the patches. "XEditor" is available as standalone and VST plug-in.

The new V2.0 firmware upgrade (available here: http://www.hypersynth.com/xenophone/download.html) allows for true 2 note duophonic playing. V2.0 firmware also adds a host of other fixes and features listed below.


Features

  • Classic and variable shape waveforms
  • 2 subs and 3 x-rings (XOR ring modulator between the square wave of an osc and its sub)
  • True analog ring modulator
  • VCF with screaming resonance
  • Fast and punchy envelopes
  • Analog distortion and digital FX
  • Arpeggiator and sequencer

  • Fixed portamento time problem that was not changed during gate-on time
  • Fixed "LFO3 Target" that was displayed wrongly as "LFO2"
  • Fixed issue with "Filter Env Depth" and "LFO1/3 Depth" that could not be set to zero in some circumstances
  • Fixed soft knob E4 malfunction in last page of main section
  • Fixed rare bug that caused soft knobs to be temporarily disabled after updating ENV parameters via MIDI
  • Fixed bug in "UI-Fixed Mode" that caused unwanted jump to OSC3 edit page
