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;-).

A deceptively simple and powerful synth in your toolbox. Easy to use and amazingly versatile. It has a multitude of presets and being a soundsmith on your own is thoroughly enjoyable. I really appreciated the richness and adaptability in the tools it offers. Also, it will not cripple any budget.Read more

My first review here so i wll try my best. Very Good synth, high quality of presets and especially very nice collection of MIDI in the browser. Suits very well with my style, hope to use it more in the future recordings! The other features are very nice - drag n drop support, waveform import and generation works really well, four oscillators is a big plus i must say, everything is very flexible and easy to control. Did not test it on my mac, windows version works really well and stable. The presets are indeed very fast and professional, hope to get more extensions in the future. The price range and its tweakability adds a lot to the competitiveness.Read more
