Terry Lawless - M-Tron Pro

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'.

Mikey Rowe (Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, Mick Jagger, Stevie Nicks, Sheryl Crow, Elli Ingram, Bill Fay, FSOL, Amorphous Androgynous, Nas).

"The M-Tron has been a must for any vintage sounds lover since it came out, years ago. Now with the M-Tron Pro they are taking the whole concept to a new level." SONIC JOY AWARD."

"I love the low end on the Minimonsta! And its flexibility. It ran great on my G4 and AMAZING on my MacPro."

Dean Coleman (DJ, Remixer & Producer)

Mitchell Froom - The Streetly Tapes

I'm a fan of your software - your volumes 1-3 are great - just bought volume 3 and they're the best software versions of these kind of tape libraries I've come across.

Mitchell Froom (The Bangles, Elvis Costello, Sheryl Crow, Crowded House, Paul McCartney, Robin Gibb, Maria McKee, Randy Newman, Nerina Pallot, Pearl Jam, Bonnie Raitt, Suzanne Vega and many more).

John Foxx - Oddity

"The Oddity is beautifully realised. All the power, character, precision, intricacy, grunge and sonic extremes of the original - plus memories. (A real gift - I managed to lose so many good sounds- or record some that I then couldn't reproduce again).



It's also capable of doing things the original never could - basic things such as midi sync, right up to the sophisticated and beautiful morph facility.



As for what defined that original - scorching leads, the swoops down to unstable depths, plus an ability to make new sounds - from abstract to uncontrollable - this can do it all. Just as the original, it responds beautifully to echoes, reverbs, flanges and additional spatial effects, all of which open up new dimensions. Everything from precise early analogue to howling organic electrolife is here.

A great tool for any kind of sonic sculpture."

John Foxx (Electronic Music Pioneer)

Mark Taylor - M-Tron Pro

The authentic accuracy of every sound re-created by the M-Tron Pro is mind boggling. From the classic choirs to the flutes of ‘Strawberry Fields’ this platform is unmistakably retro 'tron.

Mark Taylor (Simple Minds)

 

David Gamson - impOSCar2

"I wrote an awesome song which I completely based around one of your impOSCar2 arpeggio patches...Don't ask for publishing!!"

David Gamson (Ke$ha, Scritti Politti)

"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."

"I waited eagerly for the release of this synth, as I have been a long term fan of the original string synths, from the Solina thru to the ARP Quartet.

I was not disappointed: the sounds are fantastic and the functionality of the G-Sampler engine means that you quite simply never need to leave the house again."

Yorkie (Producer & Artist)
