Now consisting of a core library of waveform sounds with additional sounds soon to be offered

preset library has been completely refined, with Presets grouped by type and sound to make
browsing quick and easy, and now includes great presets designed by Pro-Sounds sound
designers Frank Genus, Torben Hansen and Bryan Lee, as well as presets by musicians
DirtyHertz, brian botkiller and many others.
NexSyn, designed by Koblo Co-Founder Max Gronlund, is a Powerful Hybrid Synthesizer with
a huge range of loadable oscillator types to meet the sound demands of modern musicians and
composers. NexSyn is capable of loading sample-based keymap files, in the proprietary XWM
(Extended Wave Memory) format. It features one of the most powerful and feature-rich
synthesizer engines found in a Software Synthesizer, and is the only one of its kind to offer
NetNotes, an online preset browsing and sharing service which allows users to find new sounds
for NexSyn in seconds via the Internet. NexSyn also features a true stereo signal path, which
gives NexSyn a more lifelike sound than any other software synthesizer, and an ultra-tweakable
interface which will appeal to sound designers of all kinds.
NexSyn's XWM sound-sets are provided by Big Fish Audio, one of the leaders in sampled
sounds in the virtual instrument world. NexSyn comes packaged with 130 megabytes of XWM
synthesizer-based sounds, which can be loaded into two of NexSyn's three Oscillators. More
XWM soundpacks will be offered via Koblo.com, with sounds ranging from Pianos to Orchestral
and Percussive sounds, and more. These XWM sound-packs will be offered at extremely low
prices, allowing users the chance to easily expand their synthesizer's sounds.
"Many Hybrid Synthesizers today tout features NexSyn offered over two years ago, and for
upwards of five times the price of NexSyn," said Michael Logue, VP of Business Development
for Koblo. "Koblo is offering this powerful synth with a feature set that until now would cost at
least four times as much. Koblo's vision is to change the rules of how musicians can make
music, by offering free and affordable tools to musicians of all types and skill levels. At
Koblo.com, users will find not only plugins, but a social network to collaborate with, and tools to
promote their music. All of this comes together to create a shift in the paradigm of how music is
made," added Logue.
NexSyn is compatible with Mac (Universal Binary) and PC (Windows XP, Vista), and comes
standard in RTAS, VST and AU plug-in formats, as well as a Standalone application.
