DCO Synths Emulated

Manx Synthesizers' new XS-3 is a VST host compatible virtual instrument for Windows.


  • 8 note polyphonic
  • Three 6-stage envelope generators
  • Two oscillators, each can output up to 4 waveforms simultaniously
  • The filter section is switchable between polyphonic & mono
  • Midi automation


A spokesperson told us, "With the XS-3, we've emulated DCO technology from the 1980's. Whilst this does feature very stable pitch, DCO's, none the less, exhibit many nuances in timbre according to frequency and several other influencing factors -all of this has been captured in the XS-3's design. In addition, this instrument can emulate all voices being run through a single filter (if you choose this option) - a cheap trick in the 1980's, but it can provide interesting and unique sounds. Add to this, separate six- stage envelopes to each oscillator plus an analog chorus which has been very carefully reproduced and what you get is the perfect complement to our flagship Super-Jay & Bit100 polysynths"
