Pretty cool synth in overall, comes with alot of presets (being someone who often use stock presets, it offers alot of choices), the 4 oscillators allow nice combinations of sounds, same for the custom wavetables, the built-in effects, the mod matrix and arpeggiator are neat to have, the ui is clean and simple, , although a bit ressource intensive, not any near being unusable, but slows down the DAW a bit (in my case, FL Studio slows down a bit, may not apply to everyone). It reminds me a bit of Serum, but simpler and less feature pact, but at 80$, less than half the price of Serum, I can hardly complain.
That's a pass in my book. Thumbs up.Read more

Hi, I have to admit it's a very good plug-in tool with a very nice and rough sound. Clear and easy to work with. Really a lot of sounds for EDM and POP music. MIDI pattern freely transferable to your DAW software. I would like to thank the company for its good work and contribution to the composer. Jirka Czech Republic.Read more

I own synths costing three times the price ascension, and they no better; In fact, this synth offers full control and a selection of presents that satisfy all tastes and expectation. Rick Holden, Vancouver, WA.Read more

Hi Folks, .
here my short review;-)).
First I have to say that this VST is a marvelous Synth.
Great sound, easy to work with and great to work/ experiment in the world of Wavetables and FM enabled subtractive oscillator.
Really great sounding piece of Software.
I have not noticed before I bought that VST that it does not support MIDI CC / MIDI Learn !! it's a shame in the present time.
Sorry but I do not know any current VST that does not support these very important features.
I hope that the DMS Team will work on this item fast.

I have run up this amazing soft synth with many other similar concepts and competitors instruments and it just can go toe to toe and holds it's own with all the big players.....In fact it is a big player :-).......10/10 to this company for their efforts and giving us an incredibly versatile and go to instrument that's easy to use but complex and massive sounding with ease. Love IT.....an absolute winner and at an incredible price to;-).
