Hypersynth Xenophone

The Xenophone, from Hypersynth, is a monophonic beast if there ever was one. Comprised of three oscillators, two sub-oscillators, one multimode VCF, four ring modulators, and a luscious analog distortion, the unit is a one-stop-shop for discreetly monophonic sound design. All of its fully analog circuitry can be routed into a powerful digital section for the addition of delay and reverb. What’s more, all of these features are oriented around the Xenophone’s comprehensive modulation capabilities, which afford the relatively easy creation of pumping basslines, razor-sharp leads, rich melodic lines, acid-style sequences, and much more.

But the fun doesn’t stop there. Not content to serve as a mere synthesizer, though it certainly excels in that department, the Xenophone doubles as an external effects processor. Consequently, it can lather just about any input signal in decadent analog filtering, distortion, and a slew of DFX.

In terms of computer connectivity, the Xenophone features full MIDI integration and a bundled editor software that lets users remotely control and automate every parameter via MIDI. Additionally, they can store and upload their sonic creations at will, allowing them ample room to sculpt complex, wholly unique sounds.

Xenophone 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

Firmware V2.0 additions and Fixes

  • Added Duophonic mode
  • Now all parameters with dedicated controls (knob/button) respond to soft knobs
  • Now you can fine-tune Filter Frequency, Env depth and LFO rates using soft knobs
  • Now for all buttons, first click displays parameter's edit-page without changing the value
  • Now LFO rate LEDs fade up/down according to LFO wave
  • Redesigned envelope display format
  • Now envelope page 2 and 3 are merged to show Delay/Hold/Style/Trigger in one page
  • Now SEQ edit-pages memorize the last edit position
  • Now you can navigate to all Arp/Seq edit-pages using [select] button
  • Now external clock does not trigger notes when Arp/Seq set to off
  • Now [preview] buttons do not trigger Amp envelope when "arp span=off" (Start/Stop mode)
  • Now OSC3 does not respond to pitch wheel data when keytrk=off
  • Minor improvements in captions and text location on the screen
  • Fixed OSC3 random pitch change when keytrk=off

  • 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
