Artist feedback on our instruments

Gordon Reid - Oddity

"For a long time, I was not a fan of software synths, finding them less intuitive and less musical than their hardware brethren. However, my view is changing, and much of the credit or blame lies at GForce Software's door.

I like M-Tron, and the Oddity was the first software synth I used that combined an accurate representation of its inspiration, a good user interface and watertight operation.

With ImpOSCar, the company has gone still further and, now that everything works correctly, the additional benefits outweigh any reservations I might have had."

"We use Oddity and M-Tron almost every day on tracks including LDN / Knock-em Out - Lily Allen and Wannabe - Dizzee Rascal"

Trent Reznor - impOSCar

"I'd 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)

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)

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)

Future Music Magazine - Minimonsta

"Purists and pioneers alike will love the Minimonsta - to build on a classic is no mean feat"

Future Music Magazine - Platinum Award

Pascal Gabriel - Minimonsta

"A brilliant piece of kit. I use a Moog Voyager, and this sounds as good as if not better, it's fully automated, has mad LFO possibilities-and costs a lot less!"

Pascal Gabriel (Brian Ferry, Erasure)

"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."

Sean Charles (Audio Director, Propaganda Games - A Buena Vista Games Studio)

"The Oddity plug in is another in G Force's series of great vintage synth tone generators. The architecture of the ARP Odyssey is beautifully rendered along with it's sizzling sound. The interface's sliders are a blast to program."

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