GEWA's slogan is 'beyond digital drums,' an ethos distilled into its flagship GEWA G9 Drum Workstation, designed from the ground up to provide impressive sound and a great playing experience managed through a modern, touch-based UI. Expansive connectivity and an onboard USB audio/MIDI interface ensure compatibility with any recording or performance setup, while built-in wi-fi lets you expand the generous set of high-definition factory samples by connecting directly to GEWA Electronics Cloud. G9 is compatible with a large and growing list of drum pads, offering both built-in model-specific presets and the ability to build your own custom trigger response profiles.

A new way to interact with your drums
The direct touch interface makes using G9 fun: creating presets, adjusting trigger settings, tuning, effects and even complex audio routing has never been so easy. The benefits of the expansive 10" touchscreen don't stop there, though, with powerful setlist functionality, sound import, search, filter, file management utilities – even an onboard PDF reader – all designed around touch-based interaction.
Pro audio recording tools
G9 provides extensive options for professional-sounding drum recordings, one of the main reasons GEWA calls it a 'drum workstation.' Use the main stereo outputs, the eight assignable direct out channels or simply connect G9 directly to your Mac or PC using USB. You can easily use it as a plug-and-play 8-channel interface, including MIDI functionality. Thanks to the touchscreen user interface, every function is right at your fingertips and you can set up your own custom audio routing configuration in seconds.
Powerful effects including Ambience for 3D sonic image
Tired of poor ambient sounds on your electronic kit? Just want to have the same overall ambience on your e-kit as on your acoustic kit, without going through dials and menus to find the perfect sound? With G9 it's easy: not only did GEWA record all G9 drum samples at the world famous Funkhaus Studios in Berlin, they also separately sampled the ambient responses of the drums. This functionality allows you to add an incredible natural ambient layer to your drum sounds with ease using just one fader. In addition to Ambience, you'll also find separate Instrument Reverb and Room Reverb options as well as a powerful Multi-Effects section.
Wi-fi, Bluetooth and GEWA Electronics Cloud
We've become used to everything being wireless, accessing the latest music, apps, information instantly from anywhere; with G9, GEWA is introducing this technology to the world of digital drums. Use wi-fi to expand your drum sound content library via direct connection to GEWA Electronics Cloud or to perform system updates without a computer middleman. Use Bluetooth to stream music through G9 from your computer or mobile device.
Extensive pad compatibility
GEWA G9 Drum Workstation is compatible with the majority of available electronic drum pads. You can build and tweak your own trigger responses or choose from a growing list of presets delivered via regular firmware updates.
