Anticipated for several years already, the GForce ImpOSCar 2 VSTi is now available (as a Mac plugin). ImpOSCar2 is the successor to our multi-award winning impOSCar software synthesizer. If you’re not familiar with the impOSCar then you’re in for a real treat. However, if you fell in love with it first time around, be prepared to fall in love all over again.
That’s because, while the original impOSCar was a component emulation of the rare and classic OSCar synthesizer with a few added bells and whistles, such as polyphony and on-board effects, impOSCar2 soars to new sonic heights via steroid injections of innovative features and enhancements, each designed around the wishes of those musicians, programmers and producers who loved the original.
Since the original impOSCar release we’ve carefully compiled user feedback and over the course of eighteen months, in another true labour of love, we’ve incorporated the best of these within impOSCar2 creating a synth that positively oozes more character, more playability, more expression and more detailed sound sculpting opportunities than could have been imagined a few years ago.
GForce Software: “Some say we’ve behaved like over-protective parents, refusing to let our corpulent teenager out for fear of it bullying the other kids on the block. That may indeed be true but we’re finally pleased to announce that the Mac version of impOSCar2 is being given its independence.”
There’s a Mac demo version here. The demo version is unlocked by purchasing a license. With a little luck the PC version will follow before 2013 (joke) and will automatically be allocated to the account of anyone who purchases the Mac version.
