"I use the Oddity for effects so it usually comes in at the end of the songwriting process. There's a fantastic preset called Kamikaze which I use for builds etc.

Then I use the impOSCar for some dancey stuff, MIDI sync'd arpeggiation and stuff like that."

Fraser T Smith (Craig David, Plan B, Mutya, Kano)

Roger King - The Streetly Tapes Vol 2 for M-Tron Pro

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.

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)

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

"Fuck me, it's immense!"

Lee Groves (Janet Jackson, Britney Spears, Madonna, Basement Jaxx and more)

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)

Gordon Reid - Oddity

"For a long time, I was not a fan of software synths, finding them less intuitive and less musical than their hardware brethren. However, my view is changing, and much of the credit or blame lies at GForce Software's door.

I like M-Tron, and the Oddity was the first software synth I used that combined an accurate representation of its inspiration, a good user interface and watertight operation.

With ImpOSCar, the company has gone still further and, now that everything works correctly, the additional benefits outweigh any reservations I might have had."

Gordon Reid (Sound On Sound Magazine)

Colin Newman - The Streetly Tapes Vol 2 for M-Tron Pro

"This is the real deal. What is so refreshing and totally useful about GForce's M-Tron Pro is that they attempt to give us everything that anyone ever tried to load into a vintage Mellotron. You get the 'classics' but you get also get sounds no one expects should be associated with a machine dating from the 60's. With the Streetly Tapes Vol 2 they've upped the ante again, you get more sounds from the Tron originators, sounds tailored for the original machine but not in hock to anyone's expectations of what sounds it should produce."

"The Oddity plug in is another in G Force's series of great vintage synth tone generators. The architecture of the ARP Odyssey is beautifully rendered along with it's sizzling sound. The interface's sliders are a blast to program."

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