Musikmesse 2018: GEWA collaborates with DW, Remo and more for the Drum Workstation G9

GEWA Music has teamed up with the likes of Drum Workshop and Remo for its Drum Workstation G9, which has been unveiled Musikmesse 2018.

GEWA has worked on the project with long-term partner Drum Workshop over recent years, and is primarily responsible for developing the module (known as “Drum Workstation G9”), the E-cymbals, the electronic pads and the software development.

Other companies involved are the French chip manufacturer Dream, and the German company TechniSat.

Remo has developed the “True Rebound” drumheads, and DW is responsible for the specially designed digital drum hardware, the DWe all-wood trigger shell, and has played a key role in the sound development.

The Drum Workstation G9 promises to offer a “completely new concept” for digital drums. It features a 10” touchscreen module (direct touch interface) and is supported by 4 control buttons that provide the user with quick access to the most important setting options during performance.

The G9’s multi-chip design allows you to separately control the sound engine, trigger signals and the brand new Direct Touch Interface (DTI).

128GB of internal memory gives users enough space to store a variety of sounds, which can be directly downloaded from the new GEWA Electronics Cloud from the Sound Store.

4GB of Flash memory are also available for quick access to pre-sets. Wireless data transmission via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth gives the G9 a range of connectivity options. Interfaces such as ASIO, USB 3.10 and XLR outputs are also included.
