WDMcM, is there any truth regarding Gem/Lionstracs working together on some sort of project? I've heard rumours on the grapevine, so if there is a new product coming out with the technology from both companies then I wish you the best of luck.
It would be great to see the sounds and styles of the Genesys working together with the software approach Lionstracs uses. Maybe Gem can get what Lionstracs failed to work working for me? Have a good Namm show.
I have been with GEM since my WX2, now 10 years ago, and i have allways loved their approach. Now with the genesys concept on the market for 4 years, i am expecting something new on the frankfurter musik messe later this month.
Now if they are working with Lionstracs i can't guess, but GEM allways works refreshing and with state of the art ideas. so I guess they will sure work with vst plugins like lionstracs or wersi. or even better like
the Muse Receptor : http://www.museresearch.com/
I think this concept has the future, and i know that GEM has allways had an eye for things like this,
My guesses are that they are making a workstation where all instruments are vst instruments. with their own drake instruments (Promega) working as a vst plugin. And their sample player (advanced genesis) as a vst engine.
I don't know if they'll take the linux approach to vst, as many vst instruments need windows DLL's to operate. but i hear that the drake engine is programmed under VX-works, which is a Unix related distro that allows real time processing. So Linux could be possible.
I can't wayt to visit frankfurt by the end of the month, and excuse my bad grammar.
