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

 

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."

Mike Beck - impOSCar2

"impOSCar2 is like a cool beer on a hot day. Thank you for properly aging it. Well worth the wait, and then some."

"These are the warmest pads I've heard on a virtual instrument!"

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)

Geoff Downes - impOSCar

"Having been a member of the original Oscar owner's club in the mid-eighties (this was made up of assorted geriatrics, weirdos pot-heads!), I was very curious (and dubious) to see how this new damned elusive impOscar would measure up against its mentor.

You see, there was always that ONE sound that you could get out of the original Oscar and not from anything else which made it really quite special.

Well I can honestly say in comparison, after having worked with impOScar for some months now, the answer is simply: Better - and better. Very inspirational sounds, ease of operation, full polyphony, fatter-than-fat bass and many other very cool features make it without doubt one of the best software synths on the market in my opinion. And most importantly, you can still get that ONE sound that sounds like nothing else. In fact, you can get quite a few more than just one! Bloody brilliant - Get one. Now!"

Geoff Downes (Asia, Buggles & Yes)

Richard Barbieri - impOSCar

"The original Oscar was one of only a few analogue synths that I never had the pleasure of playing but after only an hour or so with the impOSCar it's pretty clear that I missed out on a great synth.

This is a programmer's dream, a real variety of sounds are possible ranging from pure evolving textures to hard driven and modulated lead lines. The LFO section is one of the most natural sounding on a soft synth and the effects are a welcome bonus. A modern classic."

Richard Barbieri (Japan, Porcupine Tree)

Charles Nieland of Super Buddha - Minimonsta

"G Force's Minimonsta plug in does a dead on Minimoog impression. It's makes everything from killer bass sounds for dance beats to fab emulations of vintage '70s synth lead sounds. Of course, in addition to the traditional Minimoog controls, there are great LFO and trademark G Force Morphing sections. The interface is fast and easy to automate. Essential for any DAW."

Charles Nieland - Super Buddha (Producer: Debbie Harry, Rufus Wainwright)
