XILS-lab lifts vintage polysynth architecture-based VI to new heights

producer/software XILS-lab lifts vintage polysynth architecture-based VI to new heights

First available as PolyKB in 2010 before being updated to 2011’s polished PolyKB II followup, finally making its innovative musical mark on the VI (virtual instrument) scene at the tail end of 2016 to widespread critical acclaim as a more majorly updated ‘third time lucky’ reimagining of an ill-timed venerable vintage analogue polysynth from France that surely should have made more of a musical mark of its own with advanced waveform-morphing well ahead of its time, audio software company XILS-lab is proud to announce availability of PolyKB III v3.5 — an authentic-sounding simulation of the ultra-rare RSF Polykobol II ‘white whale’ (which, sadly, saw the demise of its innovative creators, completely out of touch with 1983’s arrival of Yamaha’s digital dominance-triggering DX7 super-seller), albeit one on software steroids and now lifted to heightened levels of expressivity and musicality, thanks to several significant improvements over previous versions — as of May 20…

The way PolyKB III v3.5 looks has also been improved, courtesy of the revamped GUI (Graphical User Interface) with reduced shadowing around the knobs to improve legibility of function wording, as well as redesigned tab selection and associated content. Not content with improving looks alone, a natural-sounding reverb now compliments already existing effects, ensuring PolyKB III v3.5 always sounds as good as it looks!
