cess01's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" The synth!"

Access Music Virus TI Desktop
Buy Used Rack version any Ti is a facade (really all) a small sound card directly on the virus, which can in some cases repaired!
The sound is infinite because we can import patch as we want!
All the parameter and its effect editable + a game.

Mac / PC software allows editing sounds or patch management and a parameter related to the sound card.

But the virus is used at 100% without a computer connected to ...


In use it is the total was up to everything (even too much for those who started) knows really nice e triturated modulation at your fingertips! :)

The manual is very clear and precise with a touch of humor really an example that every machine builder / synth and another should follow because it really is a pleasure to read and learn a lot of things!


I dub / dubstep and a little jungle / hardtek with, and sounds really corresponds to my kind of music, but viewed from the side of the patch download and I'm sure you go and find something that suits you ... GO or otherwise for the trituration and knows really big ones that can get out!
For me all is good in this synth no downside! If that can be done since I was I can not sleep! :)


I try to synth A MS2000R a RADIAS R R3 and if a lot of drum machine kind Groovebox Elektron ...

Those I like + The possibility of any edited front ergonomics, and especially the sound reproduction that frankly well worth the 900 euro invested!

The least - I'm still looking!

I repeated the same choice tomorrow without problem! You really have to taste it to believe it!

Check out the specs on the site Access.


The manual is excellent, it calls an update anyway to compile all the annexes were added over the updates. The guide "How to program analog synths" Howard Scarr provided side is excellent because it shows more than one hundred synthesis techniques used on the Virus TI.

Use side, almost everything is in front without submenu, except routings, parts of speech and effects. Only the last part is unfortunate, but eventually you get used to that part soon enough.

The fact that it is the knobs rather than encoders saves a lot of time editing. They are fast and accurate.

The overall architecture of the synth is traditional and that's what we expect from a VA like this.

Note that in terms of using the system internal gain can push max settings while keeping an acceptable final gain. This prevents alternate sound weak or strong editing, and it saves even more time! On editing parameters, the curves are very well thought out, and not that of the exponential or linear. The filter is for example in sub-linear, given in the lower midrange and super exponential at high frequencies. Very musical use.

This provides an excellent synth programming where we quickly disconnects the brain, automatic gestures, in the end we played with.

Least for a modulation matrix, which is boring to navigate.


Filters and Oscillators are very good. Mode analog filters are super interesting and can play with subtle saturations.

Envelopes will the nervous effete, it is very versatile.

The algorithmic reverb provided is perfect for a synth. The distortion is typed. Cool chorus. Effects are hyper adapted because they defined the genre alone!

Excellent expression and easy to program for the classics (such as velocity related to the volume or cutoff, it is a knob two buttons).

More constant so that the VST, the virus does not disappoint rarely and often surprises.

Attention in the high frequencies, it aliased sec. In addition, the fast modulations do not provide the same output as my analos. Do not make the LFOs with FM for example, it will not work as expected.


I possess 5 years. I always come over, we know by heart now :).

Dear Virus, if you could make it optional if your particular aliasing, and set your stories modulation matrices impractical, it would be the best friends in the world.

In any case, this is the best VA in the market, I do not change now, I know only too well the program. With the experience I would take probably polar version on the other hand.

goalex84's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" I dreamed ... Access did?!"

Access Music Virus TI Desktop
Model desktop, rack, wooden board of good quality, nice finish, heavy and ... Beautiful!

Long synth bought "medium range" ... Understand "too expensive" and still with good sound ... I bought quite a bit since ... 1999!

Full of controllers, I hesitate to make the virus more economical snow, but having all these knob is still much more intuitive I think!


Extremely easy setup: you plug in the MacBook and its progress after the installation summary of the "suite".
Manuel succinct but a lot of video on the site access which make the machine very quickly practicable. It's better to have some basis in sound synthesis all the same.
Ultra Edition via simple knobs and all through the soft sold. I always have a MIDI keyboard connected to it I think it is essential for cons (I did not have the budget for the Polar).

Ps: when passing the virus IT "plug" the MIDI does not work!

Also serves as a sound card: we just plug in its monitoring / headphone live on!


The slap!

It's big, it's like if you got hot, cold if you let do ...
It takes very enveloping and (too) quickly from the place in the mix!
I had this synth, and after two months I sold the other (Korg Z1, Jomox Xbase, RS7000, and Casio CZ101). He is constantly connected and participates in all my components (morning full on, psy,, progressiv, wagon Dub step, a little "techno" electro same ...).
I also use some plugin and a lot of samples for my compositions.

Baucoup its site (with too many effects) Access contributes to making this instrument alive and constantly evolving. The site allows you to be aware of the opportunity and soon we drop presets and triturated at will.

Since it arrived I realized it fautpas little to dial: ideas and good material ... It only remains that this virus, a pair of speakers, a sound card and a microphone, a MIDI keyboard and a small home Korg Kontrol for the software. My "home studio" was a weight loss program!


I use it for almost a year.
I had a lot before: Quasimidi (309), Korg (Prophecy, Z1, electribe), Waldorf (micro Q), roland (SH101, JP8000) yamaha (RM1x, RS7000) jomox (xbase09), Casio CZ101 , novation supernova ...
Ben I still have more than the now. The day I sold it is that I stop the music!

Value for money: it's pro gear (follow manufacturer's finish, quality converter, available memory, publishing, power ...) so it is expensive for sure!

After once connected the synth patch and some factories tried ... We know why it's expensive ... And we ended up forgetting the price!

PS: 100% synthetic "electro music" is it really necessary to say so! :-)

Go: file'll buy one and stop reading!

Access Music Virus TI Desktop
Virus Ti desktop, OS 2 (2007),
new banks of sounds (VSTi)
+ Documentation


Use gnrale is relatively simple, but it requires all the same time to adapt.
Sounds are trs Simplese edit and edit and save even more in cubase for example.
If one speaks English, the manuals (user and tutorials) are quite well done


The sounds are oriented electro course, and are fabulous: the Ti is the height of the reputable, the sounds are editable srs wishes! (I do not work for viruses) ...


No complaints, even small for now, put it. I use it only for about a month, and I did not test it live. For my use (home studio), I would do without this choice and I regret hsiter same as for waiting to buy it.
