Le Masque Delay V1.5 Released [Xils-Lab]

XILS-lab has released of a major update for Le Masque :Delay, and until February 25th, XILS-lab is offering Le Masque with a 25% discount.

New Features:
  • New FREEZE/DUB button: When this function is engaged, it will read the "loop" of the delay until disengaged. It can be used to generate loops and textures, and allows the user to keep playing and improvising over the loop.
  • LOCK DRY/WET LEVEL Button: The user can now browse all presets while preserving the Dry/Wet level ratio.
  • There are now 16 Masks instead of 8.
  • MultiMasks selections: The user can now select several Masks with a combination of different techniques, and move their locations, or change all their locators with a single mouse drag. There are three buttons to select ALL MASKS, ODD MASKS, or EVEN MASKS. Or the combination CTRL + CLICK to select continuous or discontinuous Masks. Mousing over a mask will now select it automatically. Background color and shape changes will reflect the status of each Mask (Selected, Unselected).
  • Display of the incoming audio signal inside the Grid Area: This feature is designed to improve workflow, speed of use, and to help the user with positioning the Masks.
  • Revamped management of the Masks locators:
  • New Level Toggle for the Masks Level Parameter: When this button is on, the delay signal will only be heard if the incoming level is over the Mask Level. It acts like a threshold parameter for playing and experimenting Live, or to find the best Masks configuration while moving them on the grid.
  • New Zoom Function: Zoom x4 the grid area for accurate editing of the position and length of the masks.
  • New Presets & video tutorials (see below): around 50 new presets have been added for a total of over 120. Presets include Slap Back Delays, PingPong Delays, Resonators, Pseudo Spring Reverb delays, etc etc.

Fixed bugs
  • Windows : With certain combinations of Daws/Systems, the GUI could become sluggish. Now fixed.
  • Windows 7 RTAS: now installing correctly.
  • RTAS version: now always in sync with all Pro Tools versions and decimal tempo is now working.

Price: 44€ ($58) instead of 59€ ($77) during the special sales period

This update is free for all previous owners.

Thanks SD

If there are some things you prefer in the new features or ergonomy enhencements just tell us. Until now the new visualisation of incoming data seems to have the favour of Le Masque users, its true that its much more handy to position the masks according to the part played.

Thanks a lot SD,

It was a lot of work to refine the ergonomy of Le Masque, but in the end its was well worth it Makes all the revolutionnary aspects of Le Masque intuitive and easy to use, and also more powerfull than ever. The Dub/Freeze button and Dry/Wet lock mix also add a lot imho.

Thanks acmusic, here's another "advanced" video tutorial, wich shows things only Le Masque can do, and are another v 1.5 new feature.

Imho the new Level Parameter toggle function is huge joy when playing with non repeatable stuff, like complex parts, or repeatable partterns with enough random to make interesting things happen. Then, like the incoming audio new visualisation, it can be also very usefull to position/create Masks accurately in correlation with incoming data.

Another great use for the most adventurous might probably be if you muse with that feature to experiment with it live on one track, while recording on another track the resulting output : And there you can really really achieve some magnificent stuff.

Xils servers have been down during three lonnnnnnng days, because of the crash of an HD. We apologize for this.

So the discount offer to celebrate the release of Le Masque v1.5 have been prolounged for a few days, until March 1rst, as Xils received a lot of emails of users who were unable to purchase it at the end of the normal promo period.

You can get it now
