Artist feedback on our instruments

Paul Godfrey - M-Tron Pro

"The M-Tron Pro is the first Virtual Instrument we have ever used on a Morcheeba record and once we started we couldn't stop, this plug sounds fantastic!

It blended brilliantly alongside our vintage hardware keyboards and delivered the psychedelic, majestic madness we had been searching for. Needless to say we now utilise it on everything!"

Paul Godfrey (Morcheeba)

 

Tim Blake - Minimonsta

"Using Minimonsta on stage and in the Studio at the moment!

The Melhoman adds on a really good set of tempo -based parameters that really do it with both Mainstage/Logic and Ableton....It 's Rocking!"

Tim Blake (Hawkwind, Gong, Crystal Machine)

 

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."

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)

Robert Bell - impOSCar2

It's difficult to believe ImpOSCar2 is a virtual synth. And a versatile one at that: fat pads, you got them; crunching basses, you got them; and tons and tons of new presets mean fun for all the family.

I love having the ability to resize the plug in. Setting size to LARGE I can still see the ImpOSCar2 on my laptop from the other side of the room !

I salute those crazy scientists at Gforce. Good work, boys, really good work.

Robert Bell (The Blue Nile)

"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."

John Foxx - VSM

"VSM is simply beautiful - detailed, accurate and very useful. All the classic instruments are here and all equally well performed. (Especially delighted to find my old Elka Rhapsody again, as well as the Solina). The lavish layering is simple, if you like it lush as Lynch.

All sounds are Accurately Artificial. Supplies all the proper synthetic spectrums of mood, through Delicate to Tingling, Creepy to Powerful. Martian Coctails to Noir Sexmelt. Deeply enjoyed the way the strings decay and attack can be surreally lengthened to create very subtle approaching and retreating horizons.

By the way, the phaser is a blinder - still have my vintage MXR and the SM version can shape similar harmonic curves. That cascade interaction between electron strings and phaser has always been absolutely essential.

So this is Retro Repro at its best - informed, sensitive, detailed, technologically extended - and best of all - a new, very useful electronic instrument in its own right."

"If you want Funkadelic, Prince, Herbie Hancock, Roy Ayers and George Duke's sounds from their classic records you'll find them all with VSM."

Marius De Vries - Minimonsta

"Responsive, realistic, utterly 3-dimensional..... does to the minimoog what the impOSCar did to the Oscar, and more.... another beautiful synthesizer from GForce. CONGRATULATIONS!"

Marius De Vries (Bjork, Madonna, Moulin Rouge)
