I'm glad I invested in it and hope to see more fantastic synths like this.

DMS Ascension excels in the generation of sounds like lead, synth-bass, pad, soundscapes.guitar, piano and arpeggio sequences, it is an adequate solution for a wide range of musical styles. searching for convincing virtual analog sounds, DMS Ascension will give you great satisfaction with the 11 GB of material you have to go high. .. absolutely essential in your setup.

DMS Ascension scores at something many products from renowned software manufacturers currently miss: an uncomprimising good sound and an amazing ease on system resources. (...) What comes out at the end, convinces all along the line: crystal-clear, pressureful, tonally almost a class of its own.

"All in all, DMS Ascension is a very well made plug-in, which not only for its well-organized control surface, but also for the exceptional sound quality can be absolutely convincing.

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.

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.

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.

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.

BUT.........!.

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.

Bye.

Clemens.

You opened a KVR account just to write a review... & it's a 5 star review...

Highly suspicious review.

Not as suspicious as it might seem. It looks like you can only buy it through KVR at the moment.

Well, how many synth plugins cost $240 to begin with? Except Omnisphere, HALion, Falcon, but to them Ascension is certianly not comparable. So I would agree with simmo75, a suspicious review, and also an extremely bad review.

Good day to you sir! We work with Ascension from the day of its release.
We already made a free expansion for Ascension and soon we will release a full soundbank.

I was all set to buy this synth, until i downloaded the demo and realized you can't resize it at all. Deal breaker for me.
