Matt Johnson (Jamiroquai) explores in its new video the GS Music E7, an analog polyphonic multi-timbral Synthesizer from Argentina.
In July 2021, Boutique manufacturer GS Music announced the E7, a 7-voice analog polyphonic multi-timbral desktop Synthesizer. Designed and hand-built in Argentina, the country of good red wine. Then in 2022, the official release. Now in January, it’s still a bit unknown, mainly in Europe, because you have to import the synth yourself from Argentina. There is no shop or official distributor for it in Europe.
I’ve been with Guido Salaya, the main developer, in exchange for helping to make his fantastic analog instrument more famous beyond the borders of Argentina. I am pleased that Gudio is now working with Matt Johnson of Jamiroquai, a very talented Synthesizer and keyboard player.

The result of their partnership can now be seen on YouTube. Matt recently published a nice demo of the GS Music E7 polysynth.
Matt Johnson says in his video that the E7 may have a boring name, but it has pockets of charisma. I agree with him. E7 isn’t a name that’s going through the roof. What’s more important about a synth, however, is the sound and how it looks.
The two elements fit here. The E7 looks very vintage yet modern and elegant to me, is very hands-on, and sounds excellent. A nice analog round sound with a lot of character. The E7 is a hidden analog poly synth gem for many, and it is for me too. A synth that’s still flying under the radar at the moment, hope that changes soon.
As a reminder: The E7 is a 7-voice multi-timbral analog polsynth with two rich multi-wave oscillators with sub-oscillators, sync, PWM and clever autotuning functionality. There is also a smooth 24dB/oct ladder lowpass filter, and multimode chorus + delay to refine your sounds.
Modulation side, you get two classic ADSR envelopes, three multi-wave LFOs, and support for velocity, aftertouch, mod wheel, and MPE. Not to forget, it has an interesting stereo panning with left to right or center positions. There is also a neat stereo motion option that allows you to modulate the stereo spread with an LFO.
A beautiful, classy polyphonic analog Synthesizer with lots of functionality. In case you are looking for an analog polysynth with hands-on non-endless menu-diving adventures, the E7 should be on your list.
GS Music E7 is available in three colors (blue, black, and grey) for $1600 USD + shipping + VAT + import tax.
