Sylenth1 Review In Computer Music Magazine
10 May 2007
Computer Music magazine has experienced the sound of Sylenth...
And they loved it! In the lastest Computer Music magazine (no. 113, May 2007) Sylenth1 was reviewed and awarded with an amazing 10 out of 10 and received both the Computer Music Performance and Editors Choice awards on top of that!

Computer Music writes:
"(...) this synth really does sound awesome, and it’s so easy to program that it can sometimes feel like you’re cheating somehow. (...) Sylenth1 is absolutely recommended to anyone who uses a lot of bread and butter sounds from virtual analogue synths. It sounds better than 99% of the competition and, to our ears, it even rivals Access’s famous Virus. (...) amazing when you consider how little CPU power it requires. In a word: fantastic."
