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.
