XpressO? Is it worth it?



  • I’m wondering how many of you have and use the XpressO from DynaSample? And if so, what’s your thoughts?

    I exclusively play within a church setting so my need is for emulation rather than the synth/techno sounds. For year I’ve been using the Roland XV2020 which is ok but limiting

    Generally speaking the sounds I use most are
    Ethnic Flutes
    Cello
    Strings
    Celtic pipes
    Pan pipes
    Trumpet
    Pads
    I’ve never found a good clarinet or harmonica sound



  • I use XpressO from one year, to play classical.

  • Hi Mothyb

    what i have seen and heard from the Xpresso, it s rather expensive gor what it offers. What i see what you need as sounds, i would advice the Yamaha VL70 m. It has the most natural soundings sounds. For the most natural sounds i advice the Patchman rom. One can check his sounds at his site. I have played a rather convincing violin in a string quartet..

    I am more into experimental sounds, so i have replaced the VL70 with an ASM Hydrasynth.

    Kind regards

    I get your thinking as I was thinking the same but then on the other hand I’m thinking that the Vl70 is similar ages to the Roland XV 😀



  • Hi Bernard, the XpressO and the Roland as inprinciple the same age: they both use samples. The Vl70 uses mathematical models of the instruments, wwhich means they react the same as the akoustic instrument. Like on the real instrument, when you blow to hard is overblows, generates the same overtones, so sounds more realistic. The learning phase is also a bit more than compared to a sample instrument..

    Though rather old, people still come to check wat synth i used for some sounds..

    Kind regards
