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.
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.
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.
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.
Ascension sounds great! Fat, clean and sits well in a mix. There's a large library of presets, waves & samples - EDM orientated but can work in most genres. (Guitars & Orchestral especially. A few more 'organic' instruments would be good.) The browser makes it easy to find what you're after. Editing & sound creation options are plentiful. The (six) FX are simple but effective. They can be placed in any order. The MIDI player is great for ideas / song starters. MIDI files are built in.. external MIDI files can be imported :-) Try the demo.. odds are you'll want Ascension.
DMS Ascension very easy to control. Excellent implementation of unison and FM. Huge amount of waveforms. Ability to create your own waveforms as well as LFO Wave Fits perfectly into the mix. Really fat sound.
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.
