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.
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.
