Carmen Rizzo - Minimonsta

"The Minimonsta does a great job of blending the classic analogue sound with todays modern technologies but does not compromise the sound. It can be deep and quick at the same time.

Whether I go to the great presets or dial something in, I'm always confident I will get something close to what I want and it has a very transparent sound.

It also never crashes and seems to be very consistent when I turn it on. I love how the effects works and will always lock to beat clock, and that it is very easy to use.

To be honest I probably use Minimonsta, the most. The thing is on every record I make!"

Carmen Rizzo (Coldplay, Seal)

"If you want Funkadelic, Prince, Herbie Hancock, Roy Ayers and George Duke's sounds from their classic records you'll find them all with VSM."

Xantone Blacq (Artist, Producer, Amy Winehouse Keyboard Player)

Bruce Woolley - The Streetly Tapes M300 Leads for M-Tron Pro

With the new Mellotron 300 series, the Streetly & GForce team have taken the Melly experience to another level. The source technology had improved upon the earlier designs and these ‘Hi-Fi Sci-Fi’ sounds have been lovingly transferred from the original tapes into the digital domain - bringing a whole new clarity of vision and sonic depth. Highly recommended.

Bruce Woolley (Radio Science Orchestra, Grace Jones)

 

 

James Ford - VSM

on

"It sounds great, and is really flexible. and its great to be able to use it on the road or in sessions without having to lug all those heavy bastards around!"

James Ford (Producer (Klaxons, Arctic Monkeys) and one half of Simian Mobile Disco.)

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)

Andrew Schlesinger - Oddity

on

"Incredibly accurate great ARP sound, versatile programming possibilities, wonderful interface and fun to the max! A musically useful trip to retroland."

Andrew Schlesinger (Sound designer for Emu, Casio, Korg, Kurzweil, Roland, Novation, Kawai, Seer Systems and Alesis)

Steve Cobby - Minimonsta

"I've tried two moog modular emulators in the past and to say they compare poorly is a massive understatement. In fact I'd say that having had a good play with Darren Emerson's Moog Voyager last week, which did make me a tad moist and furnished my visage with a greenish hue of envy, that the Minimonsta is so good the urge to invest in one has dissipated completely!"

Steve Cobby (Fila Brazillia, The Cutler)

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).

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)
