The first GForce Universal Binary instrument â€“ the rest to follow shortly 14/03/07
After what GForce Software describe as an â€˜epic and exhaustingâ€™ task, the first of the companyâ€™s Universal Binary instruments, the M-Tron, Mellotron emulation is ready for download. This virtual keyboard is modelled on the famous tape-based instrument used on classic tracks like the Beatlesâ€™ Strawberry Fields Forever and used by such keyboard luminaries as Rick Wakeman and Tony Banks. More recently bands such as Oasis, Radiohead and Kasabian have used the sound to great effect.
GForce are promising that Universal Binary versions of their remaining instruments will now be released very quickly â€“ in a matter of weeks, in fact â€“ so keep checking out the Sonic State news. Pricing and Availability:
