GMEDIA Music continue their line of classic synthesiser emulations with the impOSCar. This plug-in instrument is based on the original UK-designed OSCar synthesiser, released in 1984 and which subsequently became a favourite instrument of Ultravox, S-express, Jean Michel Jarre and Underworld. Only 2000 OSCars were ever produced and today it remains a highly sought after instrument due to its unmistakable blitzkrieg sound quality and unique feature-set.
The impOSCar is a component model of this original synth but also contains a raft of new features such as polyphony, improved UserWave editing, enhanced filter modes, synchronised LFO and increased LFO waveforms, delay and chorus effects, and mono, duo and poly arpeggios.
The impOSCar is available in PC VSTi, Mac VSTi (OS9 and X) and Audio Unit versions, and is priced at £99.95 ($179.95). Demo versions are available for download.
