Features the power of the popular DRAKE sound engine.
Through its intuitive and innovative user interface, the Promega 2 keyboard brings you the power and flexibility of GEM's DRAKE--DSP-Risc Advanced Keyboard Engine--technology, as already featured in the professional Promega3. Thanks to DRAKE, one of the most advanced dedicated musical DSPs in the world, GEM has been able to implement complex sound generation algorithms in this instrument like the real-time manipulation of physical models.
The Promega 2 has the same innovative user interface already applauded by many of the world's top professional keyboardists from the Promega3, offering the type of simple and logical panel layout found in many renowned vintage instruments, where every function was controlled by a single dedicated button or knob. Thus the Promega 2 electronic piano's vast array of dedicated controls: 4 faders, 5 virtual pots, 6 separate LCD displays and 4 EQ-bars, offering instant access and total control over every feature.
Realtime physical modeling
The Promega 2 offers 3 completely independent sound generating sections: pianos, vintage keys and bass/orchestra, for a total of 45 sounds with 160 voices of polyphony. The PCM sound database (64MB) contains a number of stunningly realistic acoustic piano samples including the astonishing Fazioli F308, while the real-time physical modeling system reproduces classic electro mechanical instruments like Rhodes, Wurlitzer and Clavinet with a degree of realism never before experienced in a digital instrument.
Physical models and effects
All of the acoustic piano sounds incorporate GEM's patented physical modeling algorithms like damper physical model, natural string resonance, advanced release technology and FADE (Filter Algorithm Dynamic Emulation). Plus, the sound of each section can be further enhanced with the internal DSP effects, offering 15 different reverbs and 15 different Pro-FX; all completely programmable and with independent sends from each section. At the final output stage is a programmable 4-band digital EQ, allowing you to tailor the overall sound of the Promega 2 to suit your personal taste.
Presets and Master functions
With the Promega 2 Professional Stage Piano you can program up to 64 presets which allow you to instantly recall any combination of sounds, levels, effect and control settings, while the pitch and modulation wheels offer an impressive array of MIDI control functions, making the Promega 2 a powerful and efficient MIDI controller keyboard.
The GEM Promega 2 offers both balanced and unbalanced audio connections for optimum flexibility in any performance environment, live or studio.
