"When I need a plug with real bite I always go for Oddity first!"

"As a producer who often uses string sounds it is very difficult to find samples that have their own identity. The GForce string machine, however, has exactly this.

At last I have a machine that has the capability to create the depth of this sound. The bottom end resonates, the mids can be warm and pulsating, and the top end both pure and piercing without sounding like a digital mess. There is also a unique eeriness about this machine.

All of the controllers, the filters etc are both subtle and effective, and add to the overall diversity of this machine. A true triumph in software."

Minimonsta and MTron Pro have been used daily in my studio for years. The colours, moods and deep sonics I can get from these plugs keep growing. Nice one GForce!

Mala (Digital Mystik)

 

Ryan O'Neil - impOSCar2

"What a beautiful instrument - another incredible job!"

Ryan O'Neal (Sleeping At Last)

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

"I use the Oddity for effects so it usually comes in at the end of the songwriting process. There's a fantastic preset called Kamikaze which I use for builds etc.

Then I use the impOSCar for some dancey stuff, MIDI sync'd arpeggiation and stuff like that."

Fraser T Smith (Craig David, Plan B, Mutya, Kano)

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."

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)

Tchad Blake - OptiTron Expansion

"OOOOOOOHHH....much joy. It’s great to hear these sounds in this format."

Tchad Blake (Elvis Costello, Tom Waits)
