GForce ARP Odyssey emulation gets a Universal Binary update 16/04/07
The third Gforce instrument to go Universal Binary is the UB Oddity, the soft synth modelled on the ARP Odyssey used to great effect by artists like Portishead, Gary Numan, Kraftwerk and Herbie Hancock.
GForceâ€™s Oddity has already won many admirers including electronic music pioneers John Foxx and Klaus Schultze who describe it as â€˜beautifully realisedâ€™ and â€˜better than the originalâ€™! ARP co founder David Friend told GForce: â€œYou guys did a fantastic job of getting every detail right, including incorporating some features that we couldn't have even dreamed of. Thanks for this wonderful labour of love.â€�
GForce are promising that the Universal Binary versions of their remaining MiniMonsta instrument will be available in a matter of weeks. Pricing and Availability:
