Hollin Jones on Tue, September 24th 0 comments
Featuring two VCOs, presets and a classic subtractive synthesis design, this heavyweight synth is new from Argentina's GS Music. See and hear it in action here.

Argentinian developer GS Music follows up its Apollo 1 monophonic synth with something altogether bigger and badder - Zeus, a multitimbral analog polysynth. 

Zeus is a multitimbral analog polyphonic synthesizer featuring substractive synthesis. The sound generation is entirely analog. Each voice has two voltage controlled oscillators (VCO), a mixer, a voltage controlled amplifier (VCA). The control signals on each voice are digitally generated by a microcontroller, which is capable of processing three low frequency oscillators (LFO) and two ADSR envelopes (EG). This synthesizer is still a prototype.

  • Polyphony: 12
  • Oscillators: 2 voltage-controlled analog oscillators (VCO) with sub-oscillators. Hard sync.
  • Oscillators waveshapes: Triangular, Saw-Tri, Sawtooth, Pulse with PWM. It is possible to mix pulse with other waveshape
