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'.

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."

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

Chris Bangs (Galliano, Boogie Tunes Records)

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)

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).

Dave Brinkworth - OptiTron Expansion

"Can be fun & can get you into deep shit .... that's the thing about time machines, and that's what Ilove about the M-Tron Pro with the OptiTron Expansion Pack.....you know when you start to mess with it, you never know where you're going to end up."

Dave Brinkworth (Harmonic 33, Kula Shaker, Azymuth)

Trent Reznor

"I bought the Oddity and ImpOSCar a few months ago and couldn't believe how great they were."

Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails)

Sandy Vee - impOSCar

"I immediatly felt in love with impOSCar for its unique sound.

For my productions, it's a very versatile synth. I can use it to make a big and fat bassline, for beautifull large pads, or even moving arppegiators. Build a bass sound using the two oscillator in saw, and you will have the most fat bass sound ever.

ImpOSCar is easy and intuitive to program and all the parameters are on the GUI. The filter section is superb, warm and smooth. Close your eyes, and you won't believe its a software synth!

Today, there's a lot of VSTs on the market, but GForce gives us something that sounds unique and different with their reproduction of this classic and legendary british synth."

Sandy Vee (Producer, Remixer, DJ)

Klaus Shulze - Oddity

"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."
