International Gaming & Wagering Business (known for their in-depth features on trends in the gaming / casino business) discusses the Detroit-based Motor City Casino's installation of G-Force: "Whatever music I plug into it, it produces visualizations that go with the music, so throughout the casino, some of the displays will be interactive with the music that you hear."

Digital Arts Group provides a glowing review of SoftSkies: "SoundSpectrum offers SoftSkies, an intriguing new way to have stunning digitally-generated cloudscapes mutate on screen in response to your music... SoftSkies comes pre-configured for stunning visual displays, but the depth of customization available is quite impressive... The ambitious user can even create their own skies with the Skies Designer with an astounding set of options to control such things as colors, cloud warping and threshold factors, wind turbulence, cloud accumulation rate and maximum cloud vapor level. Wow!"

Gear-Review's Ernest H Slade writes about G-Force and SoftSkies: "G-Force is a stand alone product which plugs into your favourite music player or can also work with line in audio sources. This gives the user the flexibility to choose a variety of music sources for their visualization... With uplifting cloud designs and amazing imagery SoftSkies is the ideal companion to relax with whilst playing your favourite music. Together with the cloud scenes SoftSkies also displays real life scenic photos with animated cloud scenes for the ultimate ambience."


March 26, 2007

Digital Media Online's Lou Wallace writes about G-Force on his Tech State blog: "Nothing I have seen compares to SoundSpectrum's G-Force... This is easily the most impressive music visualizer on the market and one hell of a standalone screensaver....I give it a 10 out of 10, our highest rating."


March 3, 2007

Digital Media Online article by Ko Maruyama focuses on Journey's tour with SoundSpectrum. "Attached to a massive rig which was designed by Lighting Director of Def Leppard crew, Kenji Ohashi... real time animations appear above the stage, generated by visualizer G-Force. The show's Lighting Director / Journey, Kevin Christopher notes, 'Journey was looking for a 'real time' effect that would respond to their music'. It's all live. Not only does Journey's sound drive the graphics, but the audience reaction can trigger the images that illuminate the entire crowd. Journey's Patrick Dierson praised SoundSprectrum, saying, 'What's particularly great is that Kevin Christopher [could] recall specific looks for his lighting and video cues, while still maintaining the real-time reaction from the band.'"


February 6, 2007

Relix's Rebecca Newman writes about G-Force: "With spectrums like 'Algae Singing' and 'Strawberry Dreams,' the G-Force Visualizer is the latest in trippy music entertainment from SoundSpectrum. With hundreds of different color maps and themes, the G-Force program has a seemingly endless amount of possible combinations that go way beyond your typical visualizer. G-Force is compatible with iTunes, Realplayer, Windows Mediaplayer and most music programs... and you don't have to be a genius to know what it's good for."


February 2, 2007

Consumer Electronics Network review by Heath McKnight considers SoftSkies "Beautiful Eye Candy." "SoftSkies is a really cool, advanced sky and cloud generator that reacts to what song is playing on iTunes, and is actually quite relaxing. What's also cool is being able to hook up your computer to your TV via an s-video, DVI-, etc., cable, and listening to some good music while these emulations 'dance around' on your television... it's a powerful little software app."


January 9, 2007

LiveDesign's Marian Sandberg writes: "SoftSkies is a music visualizer and screen saver that produces photo-realistic cloudscapes with color and motion. It features mood-enhancing color designs, patent-pending cloud animation, dynamic imagery, and detailed visual controls."


December 16, 2006

TheAppleBlog's Andrew Peterson reviews the recently released SoftSkies Platinum: "Softskies, a new itunes visualizer, is a new, powerful and highly customizable program that can generate an enormous variety of preset and user-specified atmospheric and cloud effects... [It] should be on the short list of anyone seriously interested in buying a sound visualization app."


December 10, 2006

Newsday's Ronnie Gill adds SoftSkies to their favorite DVDs, software and video games of the Holiday season. "For those who listen to music on their computers, SoundSpectrum, offers "SoftSkies", a media player plug-in that produces accompanying photo-realistic cloudscape visualizations."


December 1, 2006

iLounge's Jerrod Hofferth writes about SoftSkies in the Ask iLounge segment: "An (internet) search will yield several visualizer options for both Mac & PC users, but our favorites are almost exclusively from SoundSpectrum Software. This company, actually, is the company responsible for the visualizer built into iTunes, but they also offer three far more advanced visualizers separately on their website. G-Force is similar to the one built into iTunes, but builds on its complexity and feature set, WhiteCap does some really neat wireframe art, and the company's brand-new SoftSkies visualizer does some really neat time-synchronized cloud-like rendering. All three are very impressive, and definitely worth a look."


December 1, 2006

TechRestore's Brian Northway writes about SoftSkies in the Future Shock blog: "Our friends at Sound Spectrum (makes of the G-Force and Whitecap iTunes visualizers) have come out with another amazing way to enjoy your music. SoftSkies is a radically different take on the throbbing, abstract, pixel mosh that has characterized their audio visualizations until now. No longer is audio visualization the exclusive domain of futurist house DJs. Imagine watching clouds appear in the sky and change size, in time to your music (or recall sky gazing memories from a fungi-fueled shamanic voyage). The natural motion and imagery creates a soothing ambience equally suited to jazz as it is to trance, or any other non-aggro genre."


November 22, 2006

PowerPage's Jason O'Grady reviews SoftSkies: "If you like SoundSpectrum's G-Force visualizer for iTunes (and who deosn't?) then you should check out their latest effort, SoftSkies. Designed to be more soothing than intense, SoftSkies fills your screen with serene cloud imagary that moves to the beat of your music. It's perfect for connecting to a flat-panel display during your Thanksgiving and holiday entertaining."


November 12, 2006

Uneasy Silence blog writer Dan covers SoftSkies "SoftSkies is a music visualizer and screensaver that produces mood-enhancing animated cloudscapes, rich with color and realistic motion. SoftSkies fills your screen with serene cloud imagary that moves to the beat of your music."


June 16, 2006

Digital Media Thoughts' Jason Dunn writes about the gorgeous music visualizations of G-Force Platinum: "I wanted an impressive visualization tool to display on my 26" LCD TV connected to my MCE 2005 machine that pumps out the tunes while I work on my main computer. I wanted something to create stunning images, and my search led me to G-Force... There's a visualization sidebar…and more tweaks and options than I can shake a stick at... it's worth the money (if) you like pretty visualizations. I know I sure do!"


May 23, 2006

Arizona Daily Star's Cathalena E. Burch reviews the Arizona Symphony's use of G-Force in live concert to translate their music into images so that those in the audience who couldn't hear the music could see it "The orchestra used the innovative G-Force computer program to translate every sound — from Boyles speaking to the audience to concertmaster Samuel Kreiling pulling the bow across his violin during his brief solo turn on the concert's final piece, Offenbach's overture to 'Orpheus in the Underworld' — into an image that perfectly matched the energy and temper of what was being played..."


April 24, 2006

PowerPage's Jason O'Grady reviews G-Force: "SoundSpectrum's G-Force is a killer music visualization plug-in that features fast anti-aliased effects, and millions of possible visual combinations that move to your music. G-Force is highly superior to Apple's included iTunes visualizer and is the kind of plug-in that, once used, you can't live without."


March 13, 2006

Newsday's Steven Williams reviews G-Force: "SoundSpectrum has expanded the audience for the concept (of music visualizations) to about 50 million desktop computers, since the company's G-Force graphics software is included in all versions of iTunes and in the Windows Media Center. For fans who want to take more control of those swirly colors and addictive patterns, a newly tweaked version of G-Force is available on their website."


March 10, 2006

MacWorld's Jonathan Seff writes about G-Force in the Hot Stuff column: "Recently I've been enjoying SoundSpectrum's G-Force. (It) provides hours of eye candy that responds to whatever you are listening to, displays album art, has a standalone application that works with any audio source and more."


March 8, 2006

EQ Magazine's editors cover G-Force: "Soundspectrum's G-Force -- genre-defining software that's already one of the most successful and widely used digital music products in history -- takes yet another leap forward with the April 4th release of the new 3.2 edition. The culmination of months of development, the new release the marks the first full integration of a series of innovations that expand and increase the functionality of the core industry-leading music visualizer."


January 9, 2006

Byte.com's David Em writes about G-Force and its algorithmic visuals. "There are numerous plugins for media players that convert sound to moving pictures…G-Force is in different class... This is light years beyond most media player plugins... If you're a fan of music visualization, abstract film, or environmental art, you'll more than get your thirty bucks worth from the full Platinum version with all the bells and whistles."


December 22, 2005

LA Weekly's Greg Burk writes about G-Force: "The new music-visualization program G-Force (is) so richly programmed, they say it would take thousands of hours for one of its hallucinatory images to repeat, and I'm starting right now. Hour one: no repeats. Hour five: no repeats. Hour 6,101: no repeats. Verified. Music is not essential with G-Force; neither are family, friends or food. It just goes and goes, endlessly wonderful."


December 2, 2005

CNET's Jasmine France writes in the Alpha Blog: "You'll probably never see the same visualization twice if you have every option on shuffle... Another enticing application of this software applies to people who have integrated their computer systems with their home entertainment setups. Play digital music on your computer; and you can have constantly changing--and corresponding--digital art on your TV screen (this apparently looks killer on a plasma screen)."


November 29, 2005

Geek News Central's Todd Cochrane writes: "We all have seen visualizers that essentially present you with dazzling colors but I was not expecting this. Either I have been living in a cave for a while or the folks that created this have been working overtime. You can tell these folks are very serious about creating amazing visualizers for your viewing pleasure."


November 17, 2005

Mix Magazine editors review the new G-Force: "SoundSpectrum has introduced G-Force Platinum 3.0, a new software that adds visuals to the music experience. G-Force displays more than 23 million visual patterns that constantly change and evolve. G-Force works on any plasma or LCD screen, or any projector connected to a computer, and it can visualize music from any source, including live music or stereo systems. It reacts to the music in real time and is interactive."


August 26, 2005

TechRestore's Brian Northway writes about G-Force and WhiteCap in the Future Shock blog: "There's an update to G-Force that has a much greater variety of imagery and is user customizable! That's right, you can add your own images, text, or even alter the equations that produce the patterns on screen. As if that weren't enough, there's also a stand-alone version included, that will react to any input - kids of any age will enjoy seeing the colorful, full-screen graphics react to their singing and clapping. For something a little different, try the Whitecap visualization (pictured above). It's old-school 3D vector graphics are mesmerizing..."


June 27, 2005

TheAppleBlog's Jason Terhorst writes about G-Force: "G-Force is clearly much more than what iTunes has, and has many more options, and can go in many more places than just iTunes. The whole package that I tried also had things like a screensaver, and a Mac-only utility that lets you save the visuals as a QuickTime movie to play back later. This certainly outdoes the iTunes visualizer."


June 18, 2005

Gadgetopia's Deane writes about G-Force: "The guys over at SoundSpectrum gave me a free copy of G-Force Platinum, their high-end visualizer for media players. I played with it for a while this morning and I can vouch for the fact that this is perhaps the ultimate manifestation of the sound visualizer (the WS_FTP of visualizers, if you will). I sat my daughter on my lap for a few minutes, and she looked at the screen with the same expression as when we watched fireworks exploding over Cinderella's Castle at DisneyWorld."


November 28, 2004

iLounge's Jerrod Hofferth writes about WhiteCap and G-Force "WhiteCap works some amazing visual wonders with wireframe 'twists' on a spectrum analyzer. Pre-defined 'scenes' of wireframe creations—flags, donut shapes, lips, volcanos, and dozens more—actually morph from one preset to the next - the effect is very neat. G-Force is an incredibly popular (and generally gorgeous!) visualizer plug-in available for several media players. G-Force improves upon WhiteCap's wireframe simplicity, adding stunning and sophisticated visual effects—anti-aliasing, blurs, and massive particle motion."


October 30, 2004

The (London) Independent's Caramel Quin lists G-Force in his top 20 of the 50 Best Computer Accessories to buy. "Music visualzation is the fancy name for cool patterns on your computer screen, which change in time with whatever music you're listening to. G-Force is an excellent music visualization package."


December 20, 2000

Wired Magazine's James Glave covers G-Force as used in concert with Seal. "G-Force tripped out the Togetherland concert tour of multiplatinum recording artist Seal. 'When I first saw it, I had a spiritual experience,' says Seal, whose performances will be transformed into G-Force images and projected onto the walls of the 1,500-seat tent that will serve as his touring venue. 'Like music itself, the images tap into something internal and deep.'"
