This synth is really curious, it can sound really big and strangely the preset I'm playing at the moment has much unison, too, but just needs 11% CPU? And it has some great presets! By the way, I don't make EDM music ... :D

EDIT:
Perhaps it would be better to change nothing, because it has really charakter! :D

Oh no, if I would recommend, I would be guilty! And this plugin is NOT a clean perfect working VST and I have it just a few days, but I will work with it more and I will post my experience ... :D

Haha, thanks. :D Btw, Rob Papen has released a new synth. Seems interesting actually-

well, I'm not a Rob Papen "fan", I have some of his synths and I have his book, but as I read it, I wrote a own book ... but to be fair, his best VST is Blue! :D

This is a CPU hog too, Sounds fine, nothing ground breaking, but for what it is, it needs less CPU use, even on low settings, its still far too heavy on the CPU. 30-40% on a patch for an ARP is ridiculous. I am wondering, is there an optimization difference between VST 2 and VST 3 ? I installed the VST3 version and it's as I described, but I wonder if the VST2 is less CPU crazy ? I remember Cubic Audios evolution ROMpler, that wasnt as CPU crazy at all, wondering what went wrong here.
Yes, it needs really much CPU. My test track has two instances and if I reduce release to 0 and deactivate the FX it still need 25 % for two standard unison patches.

To compare:

I'm working on another song with 4 x Dune3, 4 x Nexus and 1 x Sylenth layered in the main part with much unison and FX. At that part of the song the CPU use is 22%.

I'm working with a current Intel Core i7 system and Win10
I mentioned this on the dev page on facebook, and they said the CPU use will be addressed in a future update. So fingers crossed.

I don't know much about Ascension, but I heard that there's a Kickstarter underway and I remembered seeing a thread here.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/as ... tes-151-16

The stated goal is to fund development of versions 1.5.1 and 1.6. Their target seems really low to me but it's on them to know what they're doing.
I hate signatures too.
