"The imposcar has a personality all of its own."

Matt Johnson (Jamiroquai)

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)

Music Mart Magazine - impOSCar

"It's powerful, really powerful and delivers faultlessly. Like it's stable mate, the Oddity, the results are outstanding and leave you with the feeling you've just eaten the best 7 course meal of your life, satisfied.

And with a retail price of around £100 it becomes about the best VST Synth classic emulation I have seen."

Music Mart Magazine

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."
Mike Beck

"Bloody marvelous."

Serge Pizzorno (Kasabian)

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)

"Don't think this is simply a repackaging of original tron sounds! Yes, the classics are all there and tweaked to perfection in the comprehensive sound library, but the M-Tron Pro is much, much more.

By adding optional layering, filters, dynamics and effects this thoughtfully designed and intuitive instrument not only adds playability but also opens the door to a whole new sound palette while still remaining faithful to the Mellotron legend that we all love. And it's fun!

The M-Tron Pro is truly inspirational - I haven't felt this excited about a virtual instrument for a very long time"

David Hentschel (Producer/Engineer/Arranger/Musician: Genesis, Elton John, Missy Elliott etc.)

Roger King - The Streetly Tapes Vol 2 for M-Tron Pro

MTron Pro has been a staple in the Hackett sonic diet for some time now, and is all over Genesis Revisited II. With the addition of the Streetly Tapes 2 it's shouting "use me" with renewed vigour.

"The impOSCar is the most exciting synth in my set up. It has a unique sound and the Overdrive was quite literally MADE for me. Come On England."

 

Billy Currie (Ultravox)

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'.
