"WOW!!! I just installed Oddity, and I feel like Michael J. Fox in "Back To The Future".

I remember the ARP on gigs I did and sessions I played on "back in the day". This softsynth sounds like you went back in time and snatched the original and dragged it back to now. It sounds soooo amazing!"

Ted Perlman (Bob Dylan, Diana Ross, The Manhattans, Ringo, Joe Cocker)

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."

John Foxx (Electronic Music pioneer)

Ryan O'Neil - impOSCar2

"What a beautiful instrument - another incredible job!"

Ryan O'Neal (Sleeping At Last)

The M Tron Pro and it's expansion packs are completely believable and as authentic as they come. I've used these on many records and on tour  - I couldn't do without them in my arsenal of sounds'.

"Oddity, ImpOscar!!!! Absolutely right on! So far we've used the Oddity in particular on every track I've done. Thanks for being original."

Luke Slater

DTM Magazine Japan - impOSCar

"The sound is simply incredible! The most fun part is to achieve completely unexpected sounds by customizing the harmonics of the user waves. It's a shame that my job is to recommend good synths because I want to keep this all to myself."

Hiroshi Fujimaki (DTM Magazine Japan)

Trent Reznor

"I bought the Oddity and ImpOSCar a few months ago and couldn't believe how great they were."

Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails)

Will Gregory - Minimonsta

"The ability to sculpt the sound using both hands makes the Minimonsta a real musical instrument, rather than just a programming tool."

Will Gregory (Goldfrapp)

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)

Yorkie - Minimonsta

"THE authentic sounds of the Minimoog, with added brainwarp factor 10 functionality. The ability to morph patches is an absolute delight."

Yorkie (Producer & Artist)
