GMedia Intros GForce Future Retro Pack

GMEDIA has announced the the GForce Future Retro Pack collection of GForce virtual instruments. GMedia is calling this a “limited-edition collection” that is only available for a short time.

The GForce Future Retro Pack combines all of GMEDIA’s 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.
