In Plugin Boutique, scroll down where you see v1.0. V1.5 is right under. I downloaded it there two days ago.

LeVzi is looking for v1.5.1 that was released the other day. I am as well, but haven't found it.

Hey everyone,

Plugin Boutique and W. A. Production have yet to release version 1.5.1 of Ascension (they work on very slow timescales).

Please do not share private links on KVR, in the case of the bit.ly link above this full version that will wipe some of your Ascension configuration folder - it is not intended as an update!

If you purchased Ascension from either Plugin Boutique or W. A. Production, feel free to request either a full version or an update for Mac or PC using the contact form here: https://www.ascension-vst-synthesizer.com/contact

Have a great week!
Peter @ Ascension

Well, I have a link...
(Link Removed in accordance with Dms)

Useless without the serial so...
Not quite as useless as it first appears. :)
I clicked the link out of curiosity and it began to download a 5 + gig file, I was about to cancel when the phone rang and by the time the phone conversation ended I had unwittingly downloaded the whole file.
I extracted the zip just to see what was inside and noticed the following midi packs a lot of which still appear on the DMS website, some of which sell for $60 or more.
There also appears to be a lot of soundfonts.

Not that I am a collector of midi files but I may well keep them for auditioning various patches I have in my Synths.

3,473 midi Files

The trial version must have always been bundled with the midi, so even if the direct link wasn't posted here the end user would only have to sign up for free with plugin boutique or WA to get the files.

I wonder why the trial version was ever packed with such a big midi library?
Usually developers tend to strip things back a bit.
Regardless I am sure a lot of places now have that trial archive so even if it gets stripped back the genie is out of the bottle. :)

Hi there,

Always beware of assumptions. The download you received is not a trial version - it is a full, licensable copy of Ascension 1.5.1 that was not intended to be shared.

The 'real' trial version is only 766 MB, and contains a tiny fraction of the files listed above, it is also not possible to license the trial version.

Soundfonts have not been used as a oscillator sample format in Ascension since version 1.0.1 was superceeded by version 1.5 in March 2020.

Hope that clears things up!

Best regards,
Peter @ Ascension

Hi Peter, thanks for clearing that up. You are right I have made far too many assumptions.
I saw a link clicked it and bagged a whole load of free midi files which perhaps this time was fortunate. Saved me some bunce.

Out of curiosity were older versions of Ascension ever bundled with all the midi I listed above?
I am sure I remembered downloading a huge demo version (far bigger than 766mb) of Ascension years ago?

Indeed, the original version 1 - 1.0.1 demo downloads did indeed come with a large data set, this was discontinued due to large bandwidth costs - and of course the obviously useful freebies!

Hey there - if you're looking for the 1.5.1 update please feel free to drop me a support ticket from the Ascension website or direct email (below) along with your Ascension Serial Number, and which OS you require the update for.

Plugin Boutique / W. A Production have not released the update yet as scheduled - the reason for this is unknown!

If you had read the following posts you would have seen I had posted a link to this update, which was removed by the mods. You’re replying to something that isn’t relevant anymore.
Yeah, I read too fast, you read too fast.

Legally, I don't think you should be keeping those Midi files. They are part of a paid product, not part of the trial version.

1.5.1 is now available to download from PB. You do need to change the version you download with the dropdown menu.

Plugin Boutique, W. A. Production and DMS have updated their Ascension versions, please contact their support if you require the full version 1.5.1 update download and cannot find it on your account/ downloads pages.

I'm always happy to supply the "Update Only" download - email me with your serial number and whether you are a PC or Mac user.
