Free Vibes - Physical Modeling Vibraphone

video upload by Genuine Soundware

"This is a short demo of GSi Free Vibes
a free App for iOS and Android that simulates a Vibraphone
using physical modeling technology.

Get it on the App Store:

Or on the Play Store:"

"This istrument emulates the sound and the behavior of a Vibraphone. It doesn't make any use of sampled material as the sound you hear is completely generated in real time thanks to some pretty complex math calculations performed by your device while you play.

Main Features:
- Physical Modeling - no samples
- Full polyphony (49 notes)
- Two different modes: Keyboard or Mallet
- Adjustable mallet hardness
- Available as stand-alone and AUv3 plugin
- Very low CPU and RAM usage"

DEMO of GM.LAB X1000

video upload by Genuine Soundware

"GM.LAB X1000 is a digital virtual anlog monophonic synthesizer inspired by the Jen SX1000. It's basically a nice experiment that uses one single Raspberry Pi Pico board (RP2040 CPU) and a I2S DAC. The CPU is capable of scanning the panel using multiplexers and generate the whole synthesizer algorithm at the cost of a lower sampling rate. Can be bought pre-assembled or as a do-it-yourself kit.
Visit for more details."

You might remember X1000 from this previous post.

DEMO of GM.LAB Rondò

"GM.LAB Rondò is a digital virtual string machine inspired by some of the most famous stringer keyboards of the seventies.

It features 4 registers, envelope with break-point, vibrato and chorus, phaser effect, brilliance filter and volume. Can be bought pre-assembled or as a do-it-yourself kit.
Visit for more details."

GSi Drum-80 - 80s Drum Emulator

video upload by Genuine Soundware

"GSi Drum-80 is the new plugin from GSi that recreates the typical drum setup of th eearly 80's where an electronic drum set was used along with acoustic cymbals."

"We all know and use electronic drums today, but at the beginning of the 80's the first electronic drums were a real novelty that revolutionized not only the sound of music of those years, but also the workflow in the recording studio. Many producers preferred to record the sound of electronic drums rather than acoustic drums because it saved time and money, avoiding having to mount microphones, find the right positions, spend hours equalizing and correcting the recorded material. With an electronic drum set it was quicker: it was enough to connect the cables and maybe find the right sound for the song, which was a perfect scenario especially for many low-cost productions, for example those of pop music.

The first electronic drums were completely analog, they generated the sounds of the drums using only a few elements such as an oscillator and a white noise generator, plus a couple of envelopes and a filter. The sound wasn't exactly realistic but it was peculiar, and perfect for creating certain sounds never heard before.

The downside was that electronic drums could only generate the sound of drums but not cymbals. For this reason, the sound of real cymbals was recorded alongside the sound of electronic drums. This kind of setup was also used live quite often. It was common to see a drummer on stage playing the typical hexagonal pads but combined with a set of real cymbals.

GSi Drum-80 reproduces that exact scenario. It contains two separate sound engines that can play at the same time. One engine recreates the sounds of the famous electronic drum module known as the Simmons SDS-V (very similar to the later SDS-8 model); at the same time, the exclusive GSi WLF Engine plays a multi-sample of real cymbals recorded exclusively for Drum-80.

Rendez Vous with GM.LAB

video upload by Guido Scognamiglio

"Playing an excerpt of JMJ's 'Second Rendez Vous' with new GM.LAB d-i-y synthesizers - 2x Rondò (string machine) + X1000 (mono synth) + PicoSynth (mono synth). Visit"

"G.M. LAB is a side project of Crumar and Genuine Soundware.

G.M. LAB is the name we decided to give to our 'Genuine Midi' projects that you can build by yourself or buy pre-assembled.

The Idea
As Crumar and GSi, we design, manufacture and market professional quality digital musical instruments. On top of that, we also wanted to give our customers the ability to add some more electronic "utilities" that can be easily integrated with existing music rigs to help musicians get the best out of their equipment.

Since we're living the era of open-source, why not take advantage of it and give the users the ability to customize these projects or make them with the lowest possible budget? All of our projects are based on Arduino, possibly the most famous and easy to program existing framework for programming micro-controllers."

The synths:

SATURN-4 based on the Roland Jupiter-4

"The first under the moniker and the first self-contained polyphonic synth under the brand, this synth is a 4-voice poly from 1978. The voices can be synced to create a meaty 4-osc monophonic sound and has been famously used by acts such as the Cars, Duran Duran, Simple Minds, Vangelis and Meat Beat Manifesto. For this synth we deeply-sampled the oscillator section to replicate the hardware use as closely as possible with samples. Every position of the oscillator section was multisampled, and every sound in the library was captured with and without the hardware unison and hardware ensemble effect providing an incredibly rich and authentic sound."

SATURN-6 based on the Roland Jupiter-6

"A true vintage gem, this 12-oscillator, 6-voice analog polysynth can create massively thick sounds - a pad and drone dream machine. Debuting in 1983 this instrument has been famously used by The Prodigy, Crystal Method, Chemical Brothers, Devo, Tangerine Dream, Human League and Orbital among others. A comprehensive sampling provides two unison settings for all presets allowing you to create a wide variety of sounds from modulating drones to ripping basses."

SATURN-8 based on the Roland Jupiter-8

"One of the most iconic analog synthesizers ever produced, and the brands flagship, this featured synth sports 16-oscillators on 8-voices with cross-modulation, sync, PWM, an HPF, variable LPF, an LFO and two EGs. An incredible polyphonic unison mode allows all 16 oscillators to be stacked on a single note! We captured everything, with and without the hardware unison, giving you an incredible catalog of powerful analog sounds."

MERCURY-80 based on the Roland MKS-80

"The expanded rackmount brother of our Saturn-6, this 16-oscillator 8-voice super-synth came equipped with fully-analog VCOs and a low boost circuit. Able to replicate many sounds of its keyboard counterpart, this synth wasn't simply a rackmount adaptation but a unique instrument with its own character and strengths. Due to its friendly form factor these were in high demand in the day, popular on tours but equally potent in the studio, used extensively by acts like Tangerine Dream, Herbie Hancock, Vangelis, John Carpenter, Talk Talk, and Madonna. We captured every sound with and without the hardware unison including many unique and inspiring tones."

GSi Genuine Soundware and Instruments

This is one of those I can't believe I haven't posted this before posts. GSi makes a number of quality soft synths and effects, many of which are actually free. If you haven't checked them out yet, make the time to do so.

this one sent my way via Metasonix
"Apparently, General Soundware has made some of their plug-ins free of charge, including the WatKat, TimeVerb, and Legacy Plugins. Honestly don't understand why people pay hundreds of dollars for old-instrument-simulation plugins, when stuff like this is available. Even their costliest plugins, the VB3 and MrRay73, are only 49 euros."
