"With its huge soundbank, four oscillators, Wave Editor and MIDI Player, Ascension is a powerful dance music workstation."
. Up to the minute news and reviews for all music makers.
"I've used many synths in my time, but I've seldom seen one that's so clearly laid out. The workflow is logical, streamlined and so easy to grasp. Of course, it helps that the sounds and presets are also excellent. Ascension is a knockout!"
. The show for sample library geeks, plug-in fans and soundware enthusiasts.

We are proud to announce our new partnership with Cubic Audio to release an exclusive edition of the plugin Ascension. Our exclusive release will include an expansion of 130 presets, 60 midi loops, and over 440 MB of ROM.

Ascension is our ultra-powerful dance music workstation. It's a cutting-edge synth, a huge ROM sound library and a vast collection of tried-and-tested track-ready royalty-free MIDI files in one glorious package. It's everything you need and more! 

We've crammed over 20 years of production experience into Ascension with the goal of creating an essential tool for anyone making EDM or synth-based music.

Four multi-select oscillators combine subtractive, wavetable and ROM-based synthesis options, as well as FM capability. Why choose between a high-end synth and a ROMpler when you can have both at a hilariously low price?

The ROM section includes an astonishing number of varied samples, including a 6.5 GB library of soaring pads, searing synths, fat basses, shining dance pianos and ethereal choirs that are aimed straight at the dance floor.

Combine these lush, layered sounds with your own gnarly hand-drawn custom wavetables, FM weirdness, fat detuned subtractive tones or anything else you can summon from the powerful editing and modulation options. You've got both immediate, playable sounds and maximum creative flexibility.

Ascension’s intuitive layout makes for a rapid workflow.

Choose from 6 effects units, including 5 distortion models, 2 phaser types, chorus with flanger and vibrato modes, 3 band equalizer, tempo-synced delay (with standard and ping-pong setting) plus reverb (room and cathedral models). Drag & Drop Ascension's FX units to make your own unique signal chain, perfect for creating unique sounds!

Drag-and-drop MIDI pattern playback is included, as well an arpeggiator and a vast royalty-free library of track-ready MIDI loops from the Dance MIDI Samples archives.

If you're a beginner, Ascension has every synth sound and MIDI pattern you need to make a great dance track: we're not exaggerating! Just plug it into your DAW and off you go.

If you're a pro, you'll want a top-quality array of utility patches that can slot straight into your next production, combined with the power to create your own innovative signature sounds from scratch. If you make dance music, Ascension has got you covered.

Standard arpeggiator mode comes with all the trimmings.. including 50 arp pattern presets to give your sounds instant dance floor ready groove - simply select a pattern from the drop-down menu...

Draw your own unique waveforms for oscillators and LFO patterns!

Shape your sound with 8 modulation sources and 4 extra mod envelopes, allowing you complete control over all four oscillators.
