Zeus by GS Music (Prototype State)

Zeus is a multitimbral analog polyphonic synthesizer featuring subtractive 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.

Zeus Interface

Zeus interface was designed to be intuitive with all the controls on the panel. It also features a graphic display to show the different parameters and curves. For example, it can show the envelope curves.
