GForces latest emulation has been eagerly anticipated and no wonder, the Oddity - a most excellent ARP Odyssey recreation, was well recieved (see our review). Modelled down to component level - ie: they virually make the transistors and stuff, then build the synth out of those (or something like that), the level of authenticity acheived is quite remarkable. No surprise then that the Oxford Synthesizer Companys classic OSCar is expected to be of simillar high standards. According to GForce,
The impOSCar an emulation of the classic British synth the OSCar, faithfully recreates ALL the features of the original hardware synthesiser, plus adding some notable new features of its own. The impOSCar is capable of loading original sounds via sysex and tape (via WAV files) and adds additional features such as a fully polyphonic mode, keyboard velocity responses, additional filter modes and an all new effects section, making it a true 'classic' for the 21st Century!
The impOSCar will incude PC VSTi, Mac VSTi and Audio Unit versions and will be priced at £99.95 ($179.95). www.gmediamusic.com
