Argentinian synth maker GS Music shared this preview of the latest Apollo analog synthesizer prototype, with a little Aquatarkus by Emerson Lake and Palmer.
The GS Apollo I is an analog monophonic synthesizer. It has two voltage controlled oscillators (VCO), a mixer, a voltage controlled filter and a voltage controlled amplifier (VCA). Modulation options include three LFOs and two ADSR envelope generators.
Unlike many retro-inspired analog synths, the Apollo I has patch memory and can save 32 presets.

Modal Electronics has released v2.0 of the firmware for its Skulpt synthesizer.
The free update introduces MPE support, new arpeggiator options, new tuning features and more.
Here’s what’s new in Skulpt firmware 2.0:
- MPE support – Skulpt now supports MPE-compatible MIDI controllers, allowing you to apply polyphonic control and expression to individual notes
- Sustain / Arp Latch Mode – Press and release a note / chord to sustain it, press a new note / chord to overwrite the existing one. This functions as a classic arp hold that can also be used when the arp is off. Hold the ‘Sustain’ button for one second when turning on sustain to enable Sustain Latch Mode, turning off sustain will clear the latch mode.
- MIDI-in Octave global setting – a new setting for allowing the keyboard octave parameter to also affect MIDI-in notes
The update also includes other improvements and bug fixes.
See the Modal site for details....
