"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...

Artist feedback on our instruments
"It's powerful, really powerful and delivers faultlessly. Like it's stable mate, the Oddity, the results are outstanding and leave you with the feeling you've just eaten the best 7 course meal of your life, satisfied.
And with a retail price of around £100 it becomes about the best VST Synth classic emulation I have seen."
Music Mart Magazine
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).
"I was just crazy about ImpOSCar. But with ImpOSCar2, it’s the big next step in plug-ins."
Sandy Vee (Katy Perry, Rihanna)
MTron Pro has been a staple in the Hackett sonic diet for some time now, and is all over Genesis Revisited II. With the addition of the Streetly Tapes 2 it's shouting "use me" with renewed vigour.
Roger King (www.hackettsongs.com)
"The M-Tron Pro is a vast improvement on the original M-Tron (which I loved)."
Terry Lawless (Keyboardist/Programmer: U2, Bruce Springsteen)
With the new Mellotron 300 series, the Streetly & GForce team have taken the Melly experience to another level. The source technology had improved upon the earlier designs and these ‘Hi-Fi Sci-Fi’ sounds have been lovingly transferred from the original tapes into the digital domain - bringing a whole new clarity of vision and sonic depth. Highly recommended.
Bruce Woolley (Radio Science Orchestra, Grace Jones)
"I love it. It sounds really good."
Stephen Lipson (Producer/Songwriter: Annie Lennox, Rolling Stones, Grace Jones)
"The original Oscar was one of only a few analogue synths that I never had the pleasure of playing but after only an hour or so with the impOSCar it's pretty clear that I missed out on a great synth.
This is a programmer's dream, a real variety of sounds are possible ranging from pure evolving textures to hard driven and modulated lead lines. The LFO section is one of the most natural sounding on a soft synth and the effects are a welcome bonus. A modern classic."
Richard Barbieri (Japan, Porcupine Tree)
"Delicious. Really a new instrument based on that great warm, broad sound of the original. A welcome realisation of a great lost synth of the period.
(I remember a conversation with Paul Wiffen where he said the next stage of the Oscar was a poly version, but sadly, the company closed before this was realised).
So, the polyphony is finally here and is extremely useful. Some immaculately designed patches. Equally adept at groaning organic leads and delicate evolving soundscape pads. Everything from edible to visible to shredded.
I spent an entire day just playing with this one. Got quite lost in all its potential. Also managed to bank and record enough for the start of several new tracks. An inspiration."
John Foxx (Electronic Music pioneer)
