Instrument Quotes

Artist feedback on our instruments

Morris Hayes

"The GForce suite of plug-ins (Minimonsta, OSCar & Oddity) are fatter than a ten dollar pork chop! They are very usable in a wide variety of styles of music.

They're great in the studio or on the road in my Neko 64 virtual synth keyboard. They really do offer a real great taste, MORE filling sensation!"

Morris Hayes (Keyboardist for Prince & Maceo Parker)

David Gamson - impOSCar2

"I wrote an awesome song which I completely based around one of your impOSCar2 arpeggio patches...Don't ask for publishing!!"

David Gamson (Ke$ha, Scritti Politti)

 

Chris Cross - Minimonsta

"The Ultravox reunion tour was a technical dream and my department was very well covered by MiniMonsta and the fabulously chilling sound of the VSM Elka patches.

It was the closest you can get to time travel on a keyboard. With the added adventure of the digital kingdom. Many thanks to the digital wizards at Gforce Software."

Chris Cross (Bass and keyboard player for Ultravox)

Mark Taylor - impOSCar2

The versatility of Oscar2 is capable of adding infighting perfection to your tracks.

Mark Taylor (Simple Minds)

Mitchell Froom - The Streetly Tapes

I'm a fan of your software - your volumes 1-3 are great - just bought volume 3 and they're the best software versions of these kind of tape libraries I've come across.

Mitchell Froom (The Bangles, Elvis Costello, Sheryl Crow, Crowded House, Paul McCartney, Robin Gibb, Maria McKee, Randy Newman, Nerina Pallot, Pearl Jam, Bonnie Raitt, Suzanne Vega and many more).

"...its like being transported to to a room with all your favourite string sounds of yesteryear that you forgot or lost touch with."

Geoff Downes - impOSCar

"Having been a member of the original Oscar owner's club in the mid-eighties (this was made up of assorted geriatrics, weirdos pot-heads!), I was very curious (and dubious) to see how this new damned elusive impOscar would measure up against its mentor.

You see, there was always that ONE sound that you could get out of the original Oscar and not from anything else which made it really quite special.

Well I can honestly say in comparison, after having worked with impOScar for some months now, the answer is simply: Better - and better. Very inspirational sounds, ease of operation, full polyphony, fatter-than-fat bass and many other very cool features make it without doubt one of the best software synths on the market in my opinion. And most importantly, you can still get that ONE sound that sounds like nothing else. In fact, you can get quite a few more than just one! Bloody brilliant - Get one. Now!"

Geoff Downes (Asia, Buggles & Yes)

The M Tron Pro and it's expansion packs are completely believable and as authentic as they come. I've used these on many records and on tour  - I couldn't do without them in my arsenal of sounds'.

"The impOSCar is the most exciting synth in my set up. It has a unique sound and the Overdrive was quite literally MADE for me. Come On England."
