Amok_'s review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" A small bomb"

Access Music Virus Rack
VA synth (virtual analogy), not in sound bank but subtractive, FM
- 2 oscillators + 1 sub-osc, 3 LFO, 2 multimode filter, modulation matrix, effects (delay, reverb, ring ...)
- Single mode, multi (for stacking jsuqu '16 layers) or multi-single, 16 to see trimbalités
- A powerful arpeggiator, a vocoder, and an input to 4 outputs
- 5 rotary knobs and push buttons
- 8 sound banks of 128 patches, including two banks users, plus a multi bank
It corresponds to a classic B virus or
Supplied originally with the soft SoundDiver specific for the virus

UTILIZATION

If it does not really take place, the setting with the buttons is not easy. So, I do sound design only with SoundDiver, which allows you to import all banks virus patches (all patches work, even those from TI, the virus simply ignores the settings that he does not know => so the sound patch should no longer be the same ;)
It is super reliable, except in multiplayer mode, or there are some bugs (I never use this mode)
The multi-single mode is a wonder in the context of a home studio: once set the patch in single mode, it has 16 tracks!

SOUNDS

The virus is very versatile and coexists well with analog, guitars, ...
It shines in well péchus lead and bass greasy, moog type and the typical numeric pad. It has good bass with his sub, but not warm.
We can make him do such analog pad (juno, Oberheim, ...), digital pianos, organ, as well as pure digital (ppg, Q, ...)
Compared to IT, all viruses have the same tone, IT much better integration with the computer (the audio usb, for example) and additional opportunities. However, this virus has all you need and is well worth the TI in terms of sound, and for 4 times cheaper! (Compared to the snow)
Compared to Lead North, North is better for interpretation, but the virus much more diversified sonnorits, and has better bass. In lead (subtractive and FM), this is
Compared to micron, microkorg, the nova (especially new mini and micro), I think the virus has more character
Compared to blofeld, it is a little less powerful but personally, I find it buried in terms of grain, lack of low blofeld is a true default

OVERALL OPINION

I bought it not too expensive and it is the best quality / price ratio on the market for a digital synth
I use it on all my songs, electro, pop, rock, ...
This is a synth that I will never part ...

Access Music Virus Rack
Rack 1 U A4 Control knobs facade. 16 polyphony.

UTILIZATION

Edition dpart some complex, but many can notament the arpgiateur very complete, with original rhythm patterns and ditable.

SOUNDS

Gniaux sounds for those who love the big bold sound a little dirty (bass, tablecloths, solo). It's not subtlety and that's just what I wanted (unlike my Nord Lead 3 does all shy ct.

OVERALL OPINION

I pass now with a VST PowerCore, on which I will buy the Virus plug: I like!

Access Music Virus Rack
See previous opinion!

I would add: this rack is a 'mix' of viruses and b. .. the middle just makes it! It has 2 oscilloscope and an additional sub, 2 filters series / parallel, three LFOs and three envelopes. The effect section is minimalist but largely sufficient to the tones produced! The bad thing in my opinion: it lacks two out charge! Given the quality of sound output would have 6 ts pretty good but do not complain: it has 2 inputs and then must they sell the more expensive models too!

UTILIZATION

The system a 'matrix' programming based on the Waldorf's cousin, is a bit more useful than a simple range of Waldorf. At the beginning you get lost, but eventually got used to it very quickly and the menus and the organization is rather clear and can be programmed quickly and well!

on the other hand I found the multiplayer laborious ...

SOUNDS

The is the slap! I have a machinery accordingly in what is a few synthsa modeling of different brands (Waldorf, Clavia, Novation) but none excel autentic rack this little red! The overall sound is aggressive, rough and yet punchy and capable of a certain roundness ... rather thick! Yet the number of oscilloscope is reduced (2 +1 sub) but the results are impressive thickness! By far this is the closest analogue of a real! The programming of the oscilloscope is a real success on Access to synth hat: they seem alive, not static, as repetitive and on digital synths, always on the move giving the impression of thickness I love so much! Filters when they are a true one 'butcher'! Capable of handling finesse peuevnt they reveal is the opposite of impressive wildness! And the number of possible variations and types allows a real versatility. Then the envelopes: lightning fast! couraging with kicks to the synths are a rare violence ... even on analog BAR! Another highlight from my point of view: the analog boost. This effect can give the mass in the low / medium low without making the sound 'pasty' and 'muddy' sounds ... instead start a rumble of a land-based way! Yet the sound of departure is not very heavy in the bass (unlike some real analog).

on the other hand in terms of ground ets I'm not transcend ... It happens to excellent results, but my taste is mostly in the leads and bass that excels! The modulation matrix n ' is not very thorough and grain pushes me to do sounds violent and get into it rather than creamy and things are ...

OVERALL OPINION

Given the price at which I is acquired (450E) and the systematic use of the machine I can only recommend it especially if you have a Drum and Bass, Industrial, Machinery-CORE, finally ... if you are in finesse!

Without laughing a real BOMB! Moreover compares to newer models (virus Indigo2 and xl) I found that the grain silent a little different: less fine and detailed and can be rougher ... In any case for the use I have adapted it over I will probably have broken my piggy bank to buy one of these newer models to give a little brother!
