"Jewel Bandolero captures the vintage analog sounds of the distinctive Gem Rodeo 49. This Italian synthesizer was introduced to the market by the Galanti Group in the early 1970s. It featured a 49-key keyboard and drum/rhythm machine, as well as a variety of knobs and faders to control layer volume, instrument type, accompaniment, and tempo. Our library includes synth sustains, staccatos, and “Magic Chords” dialed in from the organ, and 41 tempo-syncable drum machine loops. We recorded the instrument articulations in wide stereo and direct line in. After that, we crafted twenty evolving ambient pads from the source content to enhance versatility. Jewel Bandolero offers an exploration of a classic combo organ, complete with warm tonal colors ready to complement any genre of music.

We’ve packed the GUI with lots of great sound-shaping controls that give you the flexibility to warp the sound in many ways. You have control over Volume, Attack, Release, Transient Offset, Vibrato and Octave layering. The "Glide" control slider allows you to play legato and portamento leads. You’ll also find an adaptable LFO system, with selectable LFO shape, modulation target parameter, speed, intensity, tempo-syncing and fade-in time. You can also apply your choice of 13 lowpass, high-pass and FX filter, with assignable modulation control options, including velocity, modwheel, expression, after-touch, key position and step-sequencer table control. You can also use our customizable arpeggiator, with a built-in velocity sequencer table and control over arp direction, note timing, swing, randomization and duration."

Jewel Runner 49 encapsulates the retro analog vibes of the eccentric Gem Sprinter 49. This Italian synthesizer was introduced to the market by the Galanti Group in 1970. It featured a 49-key keyboard, built-in speaker and drum/rhythm machine, as well as a variety of buttons and faders to control layer volume, instrument type, automagic accompaniment, and tempo. Our library includes synth sustains, staccatos, and 16 tempo-syncable drum machine loops dialed in from the organ. We recorded the instrument articulations in wide stereo and direct line in. After that, we crafted 20 evolving ambient pads from the source content to boost usability, and 20 custom FX presets to kickstart your next composition. Jewel Runner 49 presents a tasty sampler platter of a classic combo organ, complete with warm tonal flavors ready to complement any genre of music.
