Merry Tronmass! (21.1.2013)
We're off to enjoy a few days of excess and wish all our customers a VERY Happy Christmas and prosperous 2013.
Due to the holidays support will be very limited over the next week but normal service will be resumed once the hangovers are gone.
In the meanwhile we'll leave you with something created with M-Tron Pro and the OptiTron, ChamberTron and OrchTron expansion packs.
A good reason to open up. (26.9.2012)
Following Propellerhead's official release of Rack Extensions for Reason, we are delighted to announce our first product, Re-Tron, in this exciting new format. Full details can be found here.
Design - Delivery - Performance Event (12.7.2012)
We're out of the office contributing to a one day music-tech event in Sheffield, UK on 22nd May 2012, alongside our old colleague and drum legend Bill Bruford, and one of our favourite bands, I Monster.
We'll be taking along a few of our prized vintage synths and talking about both their history and their recreation in software form.
If your in the area and fancy coming along, full details can be found via Rough Draft Audio.
UK Public Holiday (10.7.2012)
To celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee the 4th & 5th June have been decreed as public holidays here in the UK
While we're not ardent royalists we'd rather not get beheaded due to lack of participation. Therefore please note that between the 2nd and 6th of June we will be closed and non-urgent customer support will be between minimal and non-existent.
The Streetly Tapes Expansion Pack for M-Tron Pro (22.5.2012)
Our first release in conjunction with the original and legendary UK 'Tron-masters, Streetly Electronics.
The Streetly Tapes - Vol 1 Expansion Pack for M-Tron Pro contains 24 tape banks curated from the original EMI tape-based 'Tron archive by John Bradley and Martin Smith and made available for the first time exclusively to M-Tron Pro users.
Transferred via the Mellotronics Skellotron, this unique expansion pack provides the last word in authenticity and is an essential add-on for the award winning M-Tron Pro, the definitive 'Tron-centric plug-in instrument.
The Future Music Magazine review is in and we're pleased to say our 100% record of Platinum Awards still stands. This same review bestows a Value Award and scores of 10/10 for Stability, Value For Money, Versatility and Sounds/Results.
The reviewer even went as far as to say "To-date this has to be one of the finest plug-in synths available. All the new features are massively welcome, but it's the sound of this plug-in that sets it apart. A must buy!"
Meanwhile in Germany, to compliment the previous Musotalk 5/5 award, the November edition of Beat also awards impOSCar2 maximum points and an Editor's Choice Award. Similarly, Amazona.de emailed to say that impOSCar2 went straight into their Software Synth Chart at Number 4
And on the subject of charts, Music Radar's 20-Best-VST-Plug-In-Synths-In-The-World features Oddity, Minimonsta and impOSCar2. In fact we're the only vintage emulation company in the chart.
All this, in addition to the Computer Music Performance Award and the Air Users Editors Choice Awards, seems to indicate that the work we put into this instrument is being appreciated. As Computer Music said "ImpOSCar2 has been a long time coming, but the wait has been so, so worth it".
