Virus evolves further: The most recent addition of the Virus line is the Virus Ti. Find all the info at the link to the right.

The main part of the Ti is the integration (TI stands for Total integration) part of the deal: the Ti is a hardware synth that you can connect to your Computer via USB. It then turns the Virus Ti into a sort of a powered plugin, where the audio is routed to the Virus and processed from there, then routed back into the computer. Or the sound engine of the Virus itself is routed to the computer.

But at the same time the plugin is the ersatz-Soundiver, directly inside your Sequencer (the plugin is AU and VST, or will be), but the controls of the Virus remain active as well.

This sounds like a good idea and a very good reason to join the masses putting their old Viruses on ebay. Or an even better time to pick one of those old Viruses up on ebay...;)

The friendly people at Sounds of Revolution alerted me to the fact that they have a new sound set for the Virus C available. It's compatible with the TI and you can purchase it at the link to the right.

Access Virus Masterclass: the mag SOS (Sound on Sound) has put a Virus sound programming tutorial online. follow the link to the right and learn and learn...

Used Virus prices: Now with the upcoming release of the Virus Ti, the older models of the Virus are becoming more affordable on auction sites worldwide. If you have been considering getting a Virus, you might want to check out Prepal, a site that tracks and averages prices of used gear. I don't know how current this is, but it seemed like a good idea and one opinion among others to be consulted before buying (or selling)

Virus hits the airwaves: well almost anyways... listen to free music produced with Virus synthesizers through MP3's webstream (free registration req'd)

Even though I get some great support by Access, this page is not theirs and opinions expressed on this page are solely my own (unless noted otherwise). The intent of these pages is in no way to advertise a commercial product. It is rather the idea of an enthusiastic Virus user (that would be me, Canine) to help to provide other users with a means for communications, exchange and information.
