Who We Are

G.M. LAB is a side project of Crumar and Genuine Soundware.

G.M. LAB is the name we decided to give to our "Genuine Midi" projects that you can build by yourself or buy pre-assembled.

The Idea

As Crumar and GSi, we design, manufacture and market professional quality digital musical instruments. On top of that, we also wanted to give our customers the ability to add some more electronic "utilities" that can be easily integrated with existing music rigs to help musicians get the best out of their equipment.

Open-Source

Since we're living the era of open-source, why not take advantage of it and give the users the ability to customize these projects or make them with the lowest possible budget? All of our projects are based on Arduino, possibly the most famous and easy to program existing framework for programming micro-controllers.

Build

All of our projects can be ordered either pre-assembled at the factory or as do-it-yourself kits, complete with all parts and instructions for the assembly and programming. All source files are freely available on our GitHub account.

Buy

All of our projects can be bought and paid with PayPal directly from this website or on our online outlet My Rig Shop.

Projects

Our projects are mostly MIDI controllers. The D9U and the D9X are drawbar controllers for digital organs, MJU can be used to MIDI-fy a pedal (expression, sustain, etc.), but can also be re-programmed as an event processor. More projects will come next and will be added to this page.

D9U

D9U is a simple 9-drawbar controller. Simple as that. One button on the back lets you switch between two banks of CC numbers that can control either the upper or the lower manual of a clonewheel organ. Compatible with Crumar Mojo / Mojo61, GSi VB3-II and many other products. Project files on GitHub
Princing:
D-I-Y KIT: Eur 129,00 / US$ 139,00
Pre-Assembled: Eur 179,00 / US$ 189,00
Price includes shipping.
Place your order on My Rig Shop.

D9X

D9X is the "extended" 9-drawbar controller, with all buttons and knobs that you need for full hands-on control of your clonewheel software or hardware module. Compatible with Crumar Mojo / Mojo61, GSi VB3-II and many other products. Project files on GitHub
Princing:
D-I-Y KIT: Eur 219,00 / US$ 239,00
Pre-Assembled: Eur 299,00 / US$ 329,00
Price includes shipping.

MJU

Midi Jack USB. Connect your pedal accessory (Expression, Sustain, or half-moon switch), configure it using the display and the buttons, and have it converted to MIDI messages. Has standard DIN5 MIDI input and output, supports POWER-over-MIDI. Great with those keyboards that do not have an expression pedal input. Can be used with organ for "bass note tap" by assigning a note event to trigger with a standard sustain pedal. Or can be used in conjunction with an Half-Moon switch (Crumar, Hammond, Nord or vintage) to switch the speeds of a rotary effect simulator. Can be reprogrammed to act as a MIDI event processor.
