GS-Apollo I is a new desktop monophonic analog Synthesizer from Argentina with two oscillators (VCO), memory for presets and more!
Are no there already too many analog monophonic Synthesizers on the market? In my opinion, yes but where it lacks is the market of monophonic Synthesizers who can save presets. Today, GS Music, a young company has announced the release of GS Apollo I, a new desktop analog mono synth with the ability to save presets. It comes with two VCO’s, an analog filter, 2 envelopes and 1 LFO.
Not so optimal here is that you can only change the envelopes together on the interface. If you want to change them individually (VCF/VCA), you have to do that via MIDI CC. But it’s good to see that there is MIDI CC support. Presets can be changed with the switch of the oscillator waveforms with a pressing (blue light). From the first sound demos, it has a very good sound quality with a nice warm analog sound,
2 VCO (triangular, saw-tri, sawtooth, pulse) with a sub-oscillator
1 VCF (lowpass filter with 24dB/Oct (4 poles) with resonance control
2 envelopes (attack, decay, sustain, release)
3 LFO’s with triangular, ramp up, down ramp, square (1 LFO controllable on the interface, 2 more with MIDI CC)
Memory for 8 presets
Audio output (plug 1/4 TRS balanced)
Power: DC 12V 1A
Dimensions: 280mm x 140mm x 81mm
Weight: 1.6 kg
GS Music GS-Apollo I will be available on November 3rd, 2018 and is available now for pre-order for $19000 ARS (+/- 450€).
