Xils 3 synthesizer released

Sunday, June 13, 2010

http://www.xils-lab.com/pages/XILS-3.html

XILS LABS has just released the Xils3 software synthesizer,¬† a recreation of the great EMS VCS3 Modular synthesizer from the 1960′s.¬† This synth was used by Pink Floyd, King Crimson, Brian Eno amongst others and well known for its individual character and unique experimental sounds.

I’ve programmed some factory presets for this software version,¬† and was very impressed by its sonic salute to the past.¬† Ive included sounds for bass, ambient soundscapes, noise and experimental sounds, and new for this structure are polyphonic sounds.

This program is a lot of fun to experiment with and the sequencer section alone is worth the price.

go check it out at their website.

Programming and testing is being done for a new software synthesizer that emulates a great modular beast that has been a favorite of mine for years.   This thing performs and sounds amazing,  and Im very excited to program for this company.   As you know, Ive done a multitude of sound designing for various Hardware and Software synthesizers,  and this one has got me excited all over again.   I will let you know the details and post some examples of this great beast when we can finally present it to the public.

Abstract weird sounds, Ambient soundscapes, music from the other side of the fence.

SexTapes: Medicine Man

Monday, September 29, 2008

Blinded by the Old Man ways
Kicking out to greet the haze
If he finds out,¬† there’s nothing said
Accept HayaH,  Accept HayaH

Make her feel her heart break
Make her feel the locks shake
Make her feel it,     making me feel

Make her insane    Will you make me, not gonna take it
not gonna fake it,  right from the start

Holy man,¬†¬†¬† let’s spin my game
Kicking out to guess your name
If you find out,  Im done for sure
well is it HayaH?   is it Hayah?

Make her feel her heart break
Make her feel the locks shake
Make her feel it,     making her right from the start

Make her insane    Can you take me right from the start?
taste me right from the start?

Make her feel her heart break
Make her feel the locks shake
Make her feel it,     making me feel

Make her insane    Can you make her, make her feel it, make her feel it,
any day now

SexTapes: External Thought Processes

Monday, September 29, 2008

EXTERNALIZE ALL THOUGHT PROCESSES
UNTIL YOU WALK INTO THIS ROOM UNRENOUNCED
THEN YOU TOO CAN SHED IT’S LIES
AND BREATH THE WALL CARVED LAYOUT
AND THEN FROM THE SUN BREAKS OPEN THIS FACE

AND THE WAY THAT YOU MAKE
WATER INTO WINE
TELLING ME ABOUT YOUR MESSIAH   IAH IAH

AND THE MOVE THAT YOU MADE
WAKING UP THE LIE
KEEPING EVERYONE HALF ALIVE     IVE    IVE

BEFALLS QUOTING THE OBELISK
THE SCENE HAS DRIVEN US DOWN

BEFALLS QUOTING  DIABLOS
YOUR SCENE HAS DRIVEN US DOWN

SEE THE WAY THAT YOU FEEL
THE MOON WILL MAKE IT RIGHT
SEEMS TO THINK IT FEELS ALL RIGHT   ALL RIGHT

SUSPICION IS THE ALBATROSS
OF COLD CALCULATING HANDS
COLD CALCULATING HANDS

BEFALLS QUOTING THE OBELISK
THE SCENE HAS DRIVEN US DOWN

BEFALLS QUOTING  DIABLOS
YOUR SCENE HAS DRIVEN US DOWN

AND THE MOVES THAT YOU MAKE
WAKE ME ALL DAY
TELL ME ALL ABOUT YOUR WIERD DREAMS  DREAMS DREAMS

SUSPICION IS THE ALBATROSS
OF COLD CALCULATING HANDS
COLD CALCULATING HANDS

BEFALLS QUOTING THE OBELISK
YOUR SCENE HAS DRIVEN US DOWN

BEFALLS QUOTING  DIABLOS
YOUR SCENE HAS DRIVEN US DOWN

Monday, September 29, 2008

Someone’s trying to hunt me down
They’ve gotta gun and I can be found
Under the sink by the bathroom door

They live across the street
They bought a house      number 53
And the cars have’nt moved for days on end

NO ONES OUT TO GET YOU.. NO ONE FLIPPIN CARES
AH……MAN YOUR JUST A YOUR JUST A PARANOID FREAK

FEELING SLEAZY BITTER END
IM TRYING TO MAKE IT HOME AGAIN
AS I BREAK THE LOCKS TO THE EMPTY SHED

FEEL THE LABOR OF YOUR BREATH
AS YOU WALK DOWN THIS TINY EDGE
AND YOUR SHADOW CRAWLS TO YOUR EMPTY BED
AAH.. BUT ANYWAY

MAN.. YOUR.. JUST A..
JUST A PARANOID FREAK
NO ONES OUT TO GET YOU MAN
NO ONE FARGING CARES

I MEAN…. YOU AIN’T GOT SHIT DUDE
YOUR JUST AN IDIOT.. AND YOU SMELL LIKE SHIT
YOU DRINK YOURSELF INTO OBLIVION
AND YOUR A FLIPPING DUNCE

SOMEBODYS GONNA HUNT ME DOWN
THEYVE GOTTA GUN AND I CAN BE FOUND

IM HIDING IN THE BACK OF THE SHED

SOMEBODY’S GONNA TRACK ME DOWN

OH…. IM JUST A PARANOID FREAK

SexTapes: Get Me Down

Monday, September 29, 2008

TO KEEP THE WORD
GET ME DOWN

GO ON DOWN TO THE FROZEN STREET
WHERE THE RUINS CONGREGATE AND MEET
OH…MAKING OUT WITH THE MONEY CRAZE
WHILE THE FAMILY MAKES A MASS MISTAKE
IVE FALLEN BACK – ANTI DEPRESSANT
ALL IN STRIDE    JUST TO KEEP HIS WORK

YOU KNOW WHERE I STAND
GOT NO LEGS TO HOLD ON
BALL N CHAIN     TO KEEP THE WORK

ASSEMBLING MASS PRODUCTION
AND THE CRUEL SONS WILL BEG FOR YOU
AND THE WORDS THEY SAID WERE SO OFFENSIVE
AND THE RUMORS WE TOLD JUST TO KEEP YOU DOWN

AND ITS A ‘CRAWLING MAN’
FIRST ONE OUT TO MAKE THE JUMP
YOUR COMING CLOSE,¬†¬† DON’T HIDE AWAY

TO KEEP THE WORD
GET ME DOWN

NO ONE STANDS LIKE BEFORE WE MEET
AND THE RUMOR COMPLICATES THE SUN
OH…MAKING OUT WITH THE MONEY CRAZE
ALL THE FAMILY MAKES THE MASTER RACE
BALL AND CHAIN

DISMEMBERING MASSIVE PEOPLE
AND THE RULE IS WE HAVE TO STAND BEFORE

AND THE RAGING FAT FUCKERS
AND YOUVE NEVER LEARNED LIKE THIS BEFORE

AND YOU LEAVE ME DOWN IN THERE
I SEE THE ‘CRAWLING MAN’
FIRST ONE OUT TO MAKE ME JUMP
YOUR GETTING CLOSE
PLEASE STAND AWAY

GET ME DOWN

GET ME DOWN
THATS THE WORLD THAT YOU WANT
JUST TO COMPLICATE

GET ME DOWN

THATS THE WORLD THAT YOU WANT
JUST TO COMPLICATE
