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.


  • Mono, duo and 4 polyphonic modes
  • 2 Oscillators, 13 Waveforms
  • Programmable Additive Wave Matrix
  • Filter section: 9 filter types with Drive, Cutoff, Q and Separation
  • Two Envelope Generators
  • Mono, duo and polyphonic arpeggiator with 4 modes
  • 5 Keyboard Triggering modes
  • Extensive LFO section with sync
  • 6 portamento modes
  • Effects section
  • Programmable Velocity responses
  • MIDI Learn with storable CC maps
  • Retractable keyboard
  • 500+ Patch library. Including sounds from many original OSCar users including Billy Currie (Ultravox), Mark Moore (S-Express) Rick Smith (Underworld), Lee Groves (Basement Jaxx, Terminalhead), Tim Dorney (Republica) and Paul Wiffen, original OSCar sound designer and OSCar programmer to Stevie Wonder & Jean Michel Jarre.

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.
