Waveformless (http://waveformless.blogspot.com/2009/08/review-fxpansion-dcam-synth-squad.html)

* "Strobe is a pretty killer little synth.... excels at bass and lead sounds"
* Cypher: "Industrial and hardstyle musicians are going to eat this one up"
* "Amber sounds absolutely like the real deal"
* "Fusor goes way beyond the features offered in Legacy Cell...Fusor is incredibly deep, but the layout and operation is logical"
* "...frankly, Reaktor doesn't sound as alive or have as much character as these synths do."
* "Synth Squad is a synth programmer's dream"
* "[10/10]"

Future Music issue 217 Aug 2009:

* DCAM Synth Squad leaps straight to the top of their recommended Soft Synth chart

Computer Music Oct 2009:

* "Top-notch sound throughout"
* "Amazing modulation system"

Harmony Central: (Craig Anderton reviewing)

http://www.harmony-central.com/articles/reviews/rev_fxpansion_synthsquad/

"There are lots of virtual instruments out there, and some of them are fantastic. But Synth Squad is something else, as it provides a unique sound quality; I keep coming back to the word "character." All three synths have a weight, depth, and level of animation that's unusual to find in any synth - hardware or software, "real" or virtual."

Keyboard Magazine (Jim Aikin)

"Three terrific sounding soft synths... Not a speck of aliasing, the sound never degenerated in to digital weirdness... DCAM Synth Squad is a truly great package. KEY BUY

I can't think of a more deserving product.

(Ok, maybe BFD2 Wink )

To be honest, when I first received DCAM Synth Squad I wasn’t expecting anything out of the ordinary. Instead, I discovered a unified set of instruments of remarkable interest, depth and considerable sonic punch. Even if you never made a note of music with DCAM (which I seriously doubt) you’d never get bored just playing around with it. Strobe and Cypher both deliver fat, chunky sounds with a real sense of vitality that should appeal to virtual and analogue synth aficionados alike. While Cypher excels at conjuring up classic analogue machines of the past, its complex and extreme modulation powers take it far beyond the capabilities of hardwired analogue designs, and it proves to be an excellent tool for sonic experimentation and sound design, as well as being thoroughly musically satisfying. I’m sure Amber could sell very well on its own, because its flexibility makes it superior, in many ways, to using string synthesizer samples, and it also sounds very authentic. Space restrictions prevent further discussion of DCAM’s finer details — but, nevertheless, the keen synthesist’s appetite should be thoroughly whetted by now! DCAM Synth Squad is a fine foray into synthesis from FXpansion, and it deserves to do very well.


Kudos!
