The gemini’s features include: |
32-bit resolution - so it is perfectly suited for use in 24-bit productions. Everything works in real-time with no latency!
VCO - 2 multi-mode oscillators per voice, each with: sine, triangle, up saw, down saw, square (with pulsewidth), and an external input setting - both oscillators allow for extensive modulation capabilities to control pitch, pulsewidth and cross-modulation (see features) - the second oscillator can be hard-synced to the first
VCF - 2-stage filter (in series): ‘flexfilter’ to a 2-pole filter mixer - both oscillators first pass through the hummel 'flexfilter': 1-pole, 2-pole and 4-pole filters can be selected, each allowing for lowpass, highpass, or bandpass - lowpass, highpass and bandpass levels can be freely mixed with eachother - cutoff and resonance knobs control all filters simultaneously (allowing for blended filter variations, etc); 1-pole filters do not allow for resonance control - the filter levels can be mixed with an unfiltered 'dry' signal, direct from the oscillators - all filters can be simultaneously ‘fedback’ into themselves - the flexfilter allows for extensive modulation capabilities to control the cutoff frequency (see highlights, below) - both oscillators then pass through the 2-pole filter mixer (in series from the flexfilter output) - lowpass, highpass and bandpass levels can be freely mixed with eachother - cutoff and resonance knobs control all filters simultaneously (allowing for more blended filter variations, etc) - these second filter levels can be mixed with a signal that is not filtered by itself (flexfilter only) - this second filter mixer also allows for extensive modulation capabilities to control its cutoff frequency (see features)
VCA - amp envelopes for each oscillator, individually + a final amp envelope that mixes both - individual level controls for oscillator 1, oscillator 2, tuned noise and white noise - final amplitude control before output, includes volume + boost - the final volume controls can, again, be modulated extensively (see features) - global controls: coarse tune, fine tune, portamento/ glissando, pitch bend range EFFECTS - includes 'crusher', ring modulator, stereo chorus and a stereo phase shifter - 'crusher' gives a low-fi, grainy and noisy texture to the output signal - the ringmod has its own mod oscillator that can be morphed from a sine to a punchy down-saw - wet and dry levels can be mixed, as well as a non-filtered ringmod signal - the control oscillator can, itself, be controlled by a dedicated LFO - a standard and clean-sounding stereo chorus is provided - the chorus outputs are fed into a custom stereo phase-shifter (developed exclusively for hummel products) - the phase-shifter allows for a wide array of timbre shifts and complex tuning variations
Highlights... - modular-style routing, extremely flexible, but without all the wires and sprawling surface panels - clean, intuitive design and layout - ultra-smooth control functionality (no zipping or popping) - authentic analogue-style sound capabilities - flexible mod-wheel control over amplitude, pitch and each filterbank - almost all functions can be controlled by the gemini's unique and powerful modulation matrix: - velocity - aftertouch - osc 1 - osc 2 - white noise - tuned noise - key follower 1 - key follower 2 - ADSR 1 (which itself can be modulated by the other mods) - ADSR 2 - multi-mode LFO 1 (the frequency can be modulated by the other mods) - multi-mode LFO 2 - multi-mode LFO 3 - envelope follower
