GS Music reveals the Zeus, a Moog-like 12-voice polysynth

Argentina-based GS Music has revealed its newest instrument, a 12-voice polysynth which feels somewhat reminiscent to the Moog Voyager and other models.

Though not a carbon-copy by any stretch, the Zeus is decked in a familiar wooden chassis with tilting control-surface and exudes a traditional vibe with the subtractive architecture.

Zeus comes with two VCOs, four-pole low-pass filter, two ADSR envelopes and three LFOs. We are also treated to Chorus and delay effects and although the sound engine is entirely analogue, it’s hard to say if the same goes for the effects.

It would also seem that Zeus will come loaded with a ton of presets accessible from the central panel, however, it is not yet confirmed how many will be available.

The synth is currently just a prototype, but we are assuming that we could be seeing Zeus in the flesh at NAMM 2020, which is merely a few months away. You can catch more at the GS Music website.

I take care of the reviews on MusicRadar and Future Music magazine, though can sometimes be spotted in front of a camera talking little sense in the presence of real musicians. For the past 30 years, I have been unable to decide on which instrument to master, so haven't bothered. Currently, a lover of all things high-gain in the guitar stakes and never one to resist churning out sub-standard funky breaks, the likes of which you'll never hear.
