"From the moment this thing opened it had the sound - all the edge, aggression, shape shifting, traumatic, electronic, miasmatic, destructive, inter-dimensional presence of an Odyssey at its peak. Power, disgrace and cruel, supple beauty. A stupendous ingenious feat of digital programming architecture.

Lots of assets, agents and extras - and true meaty fx for more sonic mutation of the right kind.

A proper instrument. You can ride it like a tidal wave. With confidence. Now these things have become antiques, you'd have to remortgage to assemble the vintage gear to reproduce this sound from its original sources - valve amp, analogue flanger, Space Echo, etc. Then there's ongoing maintenance.

Here it is in transferable digits. Immoral and surreal, like downloading 1979, but less of a liability."

John Foxx (Electronic Music pioneer)

Recording Magazine - Minimonsta

"I've owned Minimoogs from the early '70s through the late '90s. Of all the emulations of that instrument I have experienced, Minimonsta is clearly the most authentic.

GForce has done its homework very well and produced a software synthesizer that is almost indistinguishable from the hardware synth it emulates. The modulation flexibility added by the LFO/XADSR matrix and the Melohman functions brings it to a new level in software synthesizer performance."

David Gamson - impOSCar2

"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)

 

Future Music Magazine - Minimonsta

"Purists and pioneers alike will love the Minimonsta - to build on a classic is no mean feat"

"Vintage funk sounds?, Roy Ayers, Stevie, Zawinul? Nothing else comes close!"

Chris Bangs (Galliano, Boogie Tunes Records)

"The impOSCar is the most exciting synth in my set up. It has a unique sound and the Overdrive was quite literally MADE for me. Come On England."

 

Billy Currie (Ultravox)

"The Minimonsta, ImpOSCar and Oddity are my favorite go-to virtual synths - hands down. In the fast pace world of interactive music scoring and sound design for video games, you have endless creative possibilities with this killer suite of plug-ins. They are unequivocally the FATTEST sounding plug-ins and programmable beasts on the planet."

Sean Charles (Audio Director, Propaganda Games - A Buena Vista Games Studio)

It's immediately evident when playing a Gforce instrument that the creators of these plugins are in love with the hardware they emulate. Great sounds coupled with extremely faithful recreations of these classics make these must-haves in your collection. - Klayton

 

Music Mart Magazine - impOSCar

"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."

"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)
