"This really is a dirty little bugger, this synth."
Russ Hughes (www.airusersblog.com) Editors Choice Award
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 must provide prominent mention of GForce instruments in each booklet during the period of endorsement.
The artist agrees to mention GForce instruments prominently in any production centric interview within the period of endorsement.
The artist agrees to supply patches and demo tracks for inclusion in GForce products and use on the GForce website.
The artist must send a set of photographs (cleared for publishing by GForce), to be updated every 2 years.
The artist must provide a list of at least 5 appearances of GForce instruments on each album within the endorsement period, e.g. "Ambient background on track 02 using impOSCar2 preset ToDieFor"
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
"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)
"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)
"impOSCar2 is like a cool beer on a hot day. Thank you for properly aging it. Well worth the wait, and then some."
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)
"OOOOOOOHHH....much joy. It’s great to hear these sounds in this format."
Tchad Blake (Elvis Costello, Tom Waits)
"After several days with the impOSCar, it has to be proclaimed a winner. It's hard to think of another soft synth with as many features or as powerful as this for as little as £100. Definitely recommended. Produces wonderfully fat, aggressive sounds."
