if you`re thinking of emulating analog video synthesizers you maybe should 
rather have a look at the possibilities of pdp and pidip than
gem (as its more like a 3d environment while pdp is more like the 2d video 
stuff). the problem (well somehow maybe only for me) is that
pdp is only available for linux (and about one year ago it always took me 
about a month to get a real good working debian/pd/gem/pdp/gemtopdp/
pdptogem working environment... maybe its easier nowadays... all i can say 
is that if you have time its for shure worth the effort)
