Artist feedback on our instruments

Bernard Sumner - VSM

on

"I was able to use it on the first track I tried it on - impressive considering I threw-up over the original instruments back in my drinking days."

Bernard Sumner (Joy Division, New Order, Electronic)

Charles Nieland of Super Buddha - M-Tron Pro

"Not only does GForce's MTron Pro plug in top all the other Mellotron emulation options in sound quality, but its massive library kills. The layout of the interface allows for a blend of patches along with cool filtering and effects. So, in addition to dead on vintage recreations, you can quickly make stunning original textures. Hours of fun."

Charles Nieland- Super Buddha (Producer: Debbie Harry, Rufus Wainwright)

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)

Computer Music Magazine

"The character and sound of the impOSCar are stunningly close to the original OSCar hardware, even down to the slightly digital-sounding edge to the oscillators' raw output.

There can be little doubt that impOSCar is much more impROVement than impOSTor."

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)

Naughty G - VSM

"If you don't know what the magic of a proper analog string machine sound is all about, just try this: in GForce's new VSM plugin, load the Freeman/Strings 2 sound in layer A, give it a bit of amplitude envelope attack and release, then set the Ensemble effect to 8 voices, mix to full and detune anywhere between 4 and 5pm.

Turn your speakers all the way up.

Play a couple of nice thick chords. If you didn't come in your pants yet you better go back to selling pancakes."

Naughty G (Sascha, Trevor Horn & The Black Smoke Band)

John Foxx - VSM

"VSM is simply beautiful - detailed, accurate and very useful. All the classic instruments are here and all equally well performed. (Especially delighted to find my old Elka Rhapsody again, as well as the Solina). The lavish layering is simple, if you like it lush as Lynch.

All sounds are Accurately Artificial. Supplies all the proper synthetic spectrums of mood, through Delicate to Tingling, Creepy to Powerful. Martian Coctails to Noir Sexmelt. Deeply enjoyed the way the strings decay and attack can be surreally lengthened to create very subtle approaching and retreating horizons.

By the way, the phaser is a blinder - still have my vintage MXR and the SM version can shape similar harmonic curves. That cascade interaction between electron strings and phaser has always been absolutely essential.

So this is Retro Repro at its best - informed, sensitive, detailed, technologically extended - and best of all - a new, very useful electronic instrument in its own right."

George Duke - Oddity

on

"The Arp Odyssey was my first love in synths and the virtual simulation you have created not only brings back great memories but allows me to recreate that sound and feel authentically in my current tracks - very cool software and my hat goes off to you."

George Duke

Lee Groves - impOSCar2

"Fuck me, it's even more immense"

Lee Groves (The Ruts, Depeche Mode)
