M-Audio Releases GForce Future Retro Pack

October 10, 2005

The GForce Future Retro Pack combines all of GForce’s expert emulations of vintage keyboards in one affordable package. These software instruments—Minimonsta:Melohman, The Oddity, impOSCar and M-Tron—bring back the sounds that defined an era—the Minimoog, ARP Odyssey, Oxford OSCAR and Mellotron, respectively.* In addition to being authentic in sound and function, these incredible emulations have the advantage of modern features like memory, additional modulation and new performance modes the original designers never dreamed of. They can be used alone or with most popular host software. Compatibility includes VST 2.0 (Mac/PC including VSTi), RTAS (Mac/PC) and Audio Units (Mac).

Minimum system requirements for PC are Intel Pentium II 300MHz; 96MB RAM; Windows 98, 98SE, Me, 2000, and XP; VST 2.0 or RTAS-compatible host application for plug-in operation.
