Black Corporation Xerxes Analog Polyphonic Synthesizer

Published on Mar 24, 2020 Perfect Circuit

"Inspired by the rare Elka Synthex, Xerxes is the newest polysynth from Black Corporation. Bringing the sound and techniques of the Synthex to a wider audience than ever before, Xerxes provides new access to a wide range of tones from edgy to atmospheric.

Xerxes has a sound that feels distinctly from the 1980s, capable of rich, warbling strings, punchy brass, and ethereal pads. It exudes a fizzy, sparking high-end energy that makes strings come alive and sync sounds bite through any texture. But it truly excels at sounds that make use of its extensive modulation matrix—creating lurching, grinding modulated textures that meld its oscillators' raw grit with its filters' smooth, resonant response.

And like the Deckard's Dream and Kijimi before it, the Xerxes is also fully MPE-compatible—making it one of the most expressive and playable analog synths available.

Xerxes available here:"
