Gforce soft synth updated to be Intel Mac compatible 27/03/07
Itâ€™s been a huge job for GMedia to roll out Universal Binary editions of their soft synth range, but the company tell us that they are now on a roll and and hereâ€™s number two. After the successful M-Tron roll out, the UB update to impOSCar will be available this week. The impOSCar soft synth is modelled on the very popular British OSCar synth that was used by the likes of Ultravox, Jean-Michel Jarre, Orbital, Underworld and Stevie Wonder.
impOSCar has a legion of famous admirers including Orbitalâ€™s Phil Harntnoll (who says â€˜I love it!â€™), Trent Reznor (â€˜I canâ€™t believe how great it is!â€™) and the original designer of the hardware synth Chris Hugget (â€˜It looks right and sounds rightâ€™).
GForce tell us that awards have been heaped on the synth by the music technology press and it has received Future Musicâ€™s Platinum Award, Electronic Musician's Best Software Emulation & Editor's Choice Award, Computer Musicâ€™s Editor's Choice & Performance Award. Music Tech Magazine's Recommended Award and Keyboard Magazine's Key Buy Award. It has also remained the top rated commercial plug-in instrument for well in excess of a year at KvR Audio.
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. Pricing and Availability:
The UB update will become available on 28th March and is free to users who purchased and registered their instrument after the 1st October 2006. For these users the instrument has automatically been allocated to their accounts at the GForce website.
