Gforce Software releases OrchesTron Expansion Pack for M-Tron Pro

Related: , , , Posted in news on Nov 05, 2012 - comment 0 comments

Gforce Software has released the OrchesTron Expansion Pack, a sound library for the M-Tron Pro virtual instrument for Windows and Mac.

As the name suggests, it’s an add-on pack for M-Tron Pro users with sounds recorded from the ultra rare and ultra desirable Orchestron optical playback instrument.

The Orchestron is an optical playback instrument manufactured in the 1970s. It generated sounds based on the same technology as the Optigan but instead of having a rhythm and effects section, it simply focussed on providing a single sound spread across the keyboard.

OrchesTron Expansion Pack features

  • Only available via Download.
  • 12 New tape banks all looped.
  • 35 Notes per tape bank.
  • Extremely rare sounds.
  • Over 100 New MTP Patches.

The expansion is available to purchase for £19.99 GBP inc. VAT.

GForce Software releases OptiTron for M-Tron Pro

GForce Software OptiTron

GForce Software has announced the release of OptiTron, an expansion pack for the M-Tron Pro synthesizer.

For many moons we have harboured the desire to release a full set of sounds recorded from our funky old Optigan. We considered building a completely new instrument but ultimately we’ve made the decision to integrate these sounds within the M-Tron Pro, primarily because they sit so well along side those tones and rhythms already released.

The OptiTron Expansion Pack for M-Tron Pro takes these nostalgic tones into completely new sonic territory and we look forward to hearing them in your compositions in the future.

OptiTron features

  • 30 New tape banks
  • 5 Lead, 25 Rhythms all looped
  • 4/4 Rhythms at 110 BPM
  • 3/4 Rhythms at 80 BPM
  • 35 Notes per tape bank
  • Over 150 New MTP Patches
  • OptiTron interface design

The OptiTron Expansion Pack is available to purchase as a download for existing registered users of M-Tron Pro, priced at 39 EUR.
