They produce three lines, musical instrument series called GEM, various studio equipment series called LEM and amplificator products called ELKA. From the 1990s to 2000, Generalmusic made a , digital  piano module called the RealPiano Expander. It featured realistic, physically modelled grand pianos with continuous damper pedal functionality. The RealPiano Expander has a delicate LCD readout that is prone to failure. This is due to the internal placement of the LCD ribbon wire in proximity to the top front edge of the plastic front bezel. To prevent damage to the LCD ribbon wire, users should not place heavy objects on top of the module. Users have replaced the LCD ribbon wire themselves.  A damaged LCD ribbon wire does not affect sound quality or other functions at all. The device also has a few bugs related to key velocity that were never corrected in the upgradable  firmware. The RealPiano Expander was succeeded by the GEM RP-X half-rack module in 2006. The RP-X featured the DRAKE (  Advanced Keyboard Engine) which simulates a  F308 and  grand piano among other instruments. Next-generation Generalmusic arranger keyboards were the WK series. Again, they offered a more sophisticated SK series as a synth-arranger alternative and Equinox as a standalone  clone. Product 1990–2006 Portable Style Keyboards: CD10/ CD20 / CD30/ WK1 / WK2 / WK3 / WK4 / WK6 / WK8 / gk300 / gk320 / gk360 / gk380 / wk1000 /wk10R / wk2000 OR / ws1 /ws2 / WX2. The last generation of Generalmusic synthesizers is the Genesys series, offering onboard sampling from an integrated ,  tracks, and . In addition to Genesys, the company offered an entry-level version named GK series and a simplified WK version named WK-1000/2000. In February 2009 Generalmusic dismissed all employees and immediately filed for bankruptcy, which was declared in 2011. In December 2014 the Finnish group Soundion Oy Ltd (new owner of GEM, LEM and Elka) announced that, in 2015, Generalmusic will bring to market a product lineup composed of re-issued as well as brand new technology models. The new production is planned to be set up in                      **DON’T FORGET TO VIEW MY OTHER LISTINGS**   I HAVE PLENTY MORE PICTURES (EBAY ONLY ALLOWS 12 PICTURES, SO PLEASE REQUEST ADDITIONAL PICTURES IF YOU NEED MORE IN ORDER TO DECIDE IF THIS ITEM IS RIGHT FOR YOU BEFORE BIDDING - I DON'T MIND!!!  BEING SOLD 'AS-IS' AND 'AS-FOUND' CONDITION.  NO RETURNS - NO REFUNDS AND NO EXCEPTION!!!   **PLEASE NOTE THAT SHIPPING CHARGE IS EXTREMELY HIGH DUE TO THE FACT THAT BOX WEIGHS OVER 46 POUNDS NOW WITHOUT THE ITEMS BEING WRAPPED OR PACKING MATERIAL IN BOX + BOX IS OVERSIZED AND USPS CHARGES EXTRA FOR OVERSIZE BOXES + INSURANCE CHARGE DUE TO THE FACT IT IS OVER $100 AND INSURANCE CHARGE HAS TO BE ADDED FOR THIS ITEM** GEM WK1000 ELECTRONIC KEYBOARD IS IN PRE-OWNED CONDITION.  AS FAR AS I CAN TELL, ESPECIALLY SINCE I DON’T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THIS ITEM, IT SEEMS TO BE IN GOOD CONDITION.
