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."

John Foxx - impOSCar

"Delicious. Really a new instrument based on that great warm, broad sound of the original. A welcome realisation of a great lost synth of the period.

(I remember a conversation with Paul Wiffen where he said the next stage of the Oscar was a poly version, but sadly, the company closed before this was realised).

So, the polyphony is finally here and is extremely useful. Some immaculately designed patches. Equally adept at groaning organic leads and delicate evolving soundscape pads. Everything from edible to visible to shredded.

I spent an entire day just playing with this one. Got quite lost in all its potential. Also managed to bank and record enough for the start of several new tracks. An inspiration."

John Foxx (Electronic Music pioneer)

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'.

Klaus Shulze - Oddity

on

"Today I installed the Oddity... it's beautiful. And with the 24dB filters it sounds much better than the original! I really can recommend this synth."

"Fuck me, it's immense!"

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)

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)

Caged Baby - Oddity

on

"I used the Oddity frequently on my new album and could create virtually any bass and lead line I wanted, the tweakability is amazing - genuine analogue sounds."

Chris Cross - Minimonsta

"The Ultravox reunion tour was a technical dream and my department was very well covered by MiniMonsta and the fabulously chilling sound of the VSM Elka patches.

It was the closest you can get to time travel on a keyboard. With the added adventure of the digital kingdom. Many thanks to the digital wizards at Gforce Software."

Chris Cross (Bass and keyboard player for Ultravox)

Billy Currie - impOSCar

"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)
