"Vintage funk sounds?, Roy Ayers, Stevie, Zawinul? Nothing else comes close!"
Chris Bangs (Galliano, Boogie Tunes Records)
We never pay artists for endorsements nor enter into an endorsement with an artist who has never used our instruments. Artists may be eligible to endorse our products provided they meet all of following conditions:
The artist must already own at least one GForce Instrument and express a genuine love for it.
The artist must prove popularity, e.g. have produced at least 1 top ten hit in a significant charts system in the last 24 months.
The artist must provide scans of at least 5 interviews in music oriented magazines, such as Groove or Bravo, alternatively video interviews on MTV or music shows on local television.
The artist must provide scans of at least 5 interviews published in magazines focussed on music production, such as Future Music, Electronic Musician, Keyboard, Sound & Recording or a combination of both magazine types.
If the artist has an existing or prior endorsement by another audio company (hardware or software), the artist must send signed confirmation that the existing or prior endorsements do not conflict with endorsement by GForce. For example, if the artist still has to mention an existing and prior product endorsed by another company he can not be endorsed by GForce.

The artist agrees to mention GForce instruments prominently in any production centric interview within the period of endorsement.

Failure to meet any of the above conditions will result in termination of the agreement and any licenses that have been issued under this agreement will be revoked. GForce Software Ltd reserves the right to revoke any NFR license at any time for any reason.
The artist can end the endorsement period at any time by buying normal single user license.
Artist feedback on our instruments
"The M-Tron graduates to long trousers with this highly enjoyable, easy to use 'Pro' version of GForce's popular, well-loved Melly plug-in. Its dual-layer structure orders subtractive synthesis, effects, full MIDI control and a greatly expanded code library. Twice the fun!"
Sound On Sound Magazine
"It sounds great, and is really flexible. and its great to be able to use it on the road or in sessions without having to lug all those heavy bastards around!"
James Ford (Producer (Klaxons, Arctic Monkeys) and one half of Simian Mobile Disco.)
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'.
Mikey Rowe (Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, Mick Jagger, Stevie Nicks, Sheryl Crow, Elli Ingram, Bill Fay, FSOL, Amorphous Androgynous, Nas).
"Receiving the VSM coincided nicely with the start of my new album and I was looking forward to it because I thought it was a great idea to have all these instruments together. I also felt like working with just the piano and string synth for coming up with ideas. Something I used to do in the past, especially when working with a band.
It was amazing to hear the Elka Rhapsody again and the Yamaha SS-30 but it is also good to hear all the other ones that are in there. I always loved the Oberheim sound so I have utilised the Xpander sounds.
The Solina was an instrument I didn't really get on with in the seventies, too silky, but interesting to go back to now!
I do admit though that I did not have a great relationship with the Yamaha SS-30 initially. Yamaha gave the gear to Ultravox in 1979-80 so I didn't say "No thanks". I must admit it does sound flipping brilliant in the VSM though - Nice One!"
Billy Currie (Ultravox)
"Today I installed the Oddity... it's beautiful. And with the 24dB filters it sounds much better than the original! I really can recommend this synth."
"I'm impressed by impOSCar. Many sound creating features are far extended coherently. ImpOSCar is no common plug-in: distortions are part of its special sound...
The offered sounds are original: bass line sounds are way more brachial than with any other plug-in.
If you like digital FXs you got to put your hands on impOSCar... The wicked, high powered and harsh sounds make it so different to all other simulations of analogue gear."
