G-Storm Plugins introduces the VSP-330 Voice Synth Plus VST plugin. Redesigned from the ground up, version two is a software synthesizer that emulates vintage HUMAN VOICE synthesized formant choirs and STRING ensemble sounds inspired by the rare and nearly extinct VP-330. G-Storm Plugins has released VSP-330 version 2.0 Voice Synth Plus – a recreation of the rare and nearly extinct Roland VP-330 string ensemble and human voice formant choirs. The original Roland VP-330 Vocoder Plus was used notably by Vangelis on his soundtracks for Blade Runner and other movies. The Roland VP-03 is a miniature version of the VP-330 Vocoder Plus, one of the most popular vocoders ever made. Part of the Roland Boutique series, the VP-03 brings together the worlds of synthesized sound and the human voice, using the latest ACB technology to accurately emulate the sound that made the original so influential.

XILS Lab, the French company run by Xavier Oudin, just added a new emulation to their lovely catalog of retro-inspired gems. XILS 505 is a modern software take on the classic Roland RS-505, the ’70s paraphonic cult string synthesizer that you can see in this video:
Calling the 505 a string synth doesn’t really give it justice though. Sure, it’s an inspiring a string machine, but also a powerful bass synth. XILS 505 allows you to enjoy and unleash the full power of the original unit, adding a Vintage Analog Human Choir Machine (as an alternative oscillator source for the Synthesizer part) and exposing numerous hidden parameters of the vintagee model.
The official web page offers a number of audio demos. You can also download a demo version with limited features and buy the plugin while on sale.
XILS 505 is currently available for €89 instead of €149. Also, the French company has introduced the Analog String Machine Bundle, which allows you to upgrade from XILS V+ (the fantastic emulation of the Roland VP-330, a must-have!) or buy XILS V+ and XILS-505 together with a discount.
Being huge fans of vintage string machines, we look forward to checking out the XILS 505, so stay tuned…
