Africa (cover) using Zeus Analog Polyphonic Synthesizer

Published on May 3, 2020 GS Music

"The main synth sound on this song was made with a Yamaha CS-80, so I decided to recreate it with Zeus.
Zeus is an analog polyphonic synthesizer prototype that we are developing in GS Music, at Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Although this prototype has a 4-octave keyboard and 6 voices, the final version will have a 5-octave keyboard and 12 voices. Pitch bend and modulation wheels will be added too.

A few days ago, we were able to implement some multitimbral capabilities, so we assigned different timbres to the lower and upper keyboards. The lower keyboard is a Yamaha KX-88 MIDI controller.

Africa is a song written by David Paich and Jeff Porcaro.
The song is used in this video te show the capabilities of our synthesizers."

I wonder if this is still playing.
