Broekhuis, Keller & Schönwälder
.... are the drummer, percussion player und studio freak Bas B. Broekhuis from Netherlands, the in Duisburg born synthesizer and sequencer specialists Detlef Keller and the Berlin based sound designer Mario Schönwälder.
During the last 10 years the trio performed more then 50 concerts in Europe and have released six CDs. From time to time the violin and flute player Thomas Kagermann and the Flamenco guitar player Raughi Ebert (aka Tierra Negra) are guest musicans for their concerts. The sequencer based music is inspired by the "Berlin School", Trance and Ambient. All artists have their own solo projects too.
Mario about the STS-19 SE, which he have found in German music magazine BEAT: "I was very impressed, when I´ve listen the first sounds of this outstanding goody. For coming film projects and concerts we will find with HGFortunes VSTi synthesizers a lot of very good soundscapes and athmospheres."
Arthur Loves Plastic (Bev Stanton)
Bev Stanton was born in the Bahamas and raised near Walt Disney World. She recorded ALP's first project, Sperm Warfare, in her basement, and it was released in Europe by Britain's TEQ Music. After TEQ folded, Stanton independently released over twenty CDs. Her early internet presence prompted Keyboard Magazine to feature her in a cover story on indie-music promotion. Stanton has gained recognition as a "remix master" (Washington Post) for deconstructing DC artists such as Lisa Moscatiello. Her solo material, which combines the quirkiness of Bjork, and the ennui of Moby, has won over a dozen Washington Area Music Awards (WAMMIES) in the Electronica category.
Her music has appeared in shows on the Discovery Channel, VH1, MTV and other cable television networks. Stanton is one of 24 female electronic artists and deejays profiled in Pink Noises: Women in Electronic Music and Sound (Tara Rodgers; Duke University Press, 2010), alongside DJ Rekha and Le Tigre. Arthur Loves Plastic also has eleven tracks featured in the Solocat Productions Los Angeles premiere of The Blue Room by David Hare. Ever embracing new technologies, Stanton's newest release is a 30-minute download EP influenced and created with iPhone applications.
I use HG Fortune's VST plugins with Reaper. I love the brilliant soundscapes and sense of evolving motion the plugins provide. My latest favorite is Avatar ST.

Syngularity started 1997 with with a couple of melodic electronica tracks. Sometimes we touch the symphonic/soundtrack genre, also with elements of rock and a special sound design (using hardware devices by Roland and Korg and fine virtual solutions by Steinberg, Spectrasonics, HG Fortune and many others). International singers and instrumentalists are always involved, and we enjoy working together with all those talented artists who help us to keep the musical output colourful and fresh.
"The 11th Syngularity album ist just out: "More to Say", including HG Fortune sounds in tracks like "Ice Skating", "Nice Age", "Mutate and Retry"... Pascal loves these instruments for adding a shining extra in his productions. He is now working as sound designer for a well-known gaming company."
"The arrangement wouldn't have be so impressive without the inspiring power of HG Fortune's exciting vst instruments."

Since the first time I played the Protoplasm TSM and the STS-24 years ago, H.G. Fortune Synths are part of my projects. they are essential to complement the structure of my experiments, I also use my field recording sounds loaded into them, taking advantage of the versatility of these Plugins. I love the way Mr. Fortune designs his synths, they are a modulation paradise.“

As a musician I produce instrumental synthesizer music out of the box. My music style is a mixture of ambient, minimal, filmic, melodic and EM.
Caught by popsongs from the sixties, the synthesizer music is always playing in my head. After playing some sessions with a band in the late nineties, it became clear to me that,instead of listening to music from my high end installation, I wanted to create music myself. I have been influenced by the old school Yes, Genesis and Pink Floyd. When I hear that kind of music, my heart beats a little faster. I always try to put deep emotions in my music, so my music is no swinging party music (others can do this better than I) "The more tears, the more I like it" I once said. To understand my music you have to sit back, pay attention and really listen to it.
For almost all my work I use HGFortune VSTi's. The soundscapes from HGFortune VSTi are great and very wonderfull. They inspire me to create new themes. The sounds from HGFortune VSTi's vary from smooth romantic/filmic through complex/spacy to rude/bizar. There are rare sounds you can hear from HGFortune VSTi's and when you use the lazy button, you can hear even more ! Sometimes I hear sounds I have never heard before. So I'm glad that HGFortune designs such beautifull VSTi's ! If you are keen on rare and experimental sounds, than the HGFortune VSTi's are for you.

I use HG Fortune VST synthetizers for recording and live work.
For my ambient albums I use HG Fortune VST synthetizers almost exclusively and for the Berlin School albums they integrate perfectly with the vintage analogue synthesiser VSTs and Mellotron VSTs that I use.
In my live concerts I often layer several HG Fortune VST synthetizers together for massive ambient soundscapes.
HG Fortune plugins are simply amazing, easy to use, flexible and sound superb. I would recommend them to anyone who wishes to create incredible soundscapes.

Valenten / Instant Pyrolysis
"I've known HG Fortune VST synthetizers for several years now, and I have always been spellbound by their ability to create upper-quality atmospheres in a few seconds.
With Instant Pyrolysis, they revealed themselves to be particularly useful as a basis for drone creation. Although I am combining them with other effects, it is clear that their large number of options offers a unique way to build complex state-of-the-art Dark Ambient textures."
