Access will release their desktop synth Snow in a dark color, the new, and limited edition Virus Snow TI Black Edition.
It will be a very limited edition as they’ll only produce 15 Black Editon Snows.
The Virus TI series comes in different flavors. The Virus TI Snow features the same sound engine like its bigger Virus TI brothers.
The Snow features 4 multimode parts and about 50% of the polyphony in comparison to the bigger models. Those result in everything in between 10 and 50 voices with the same signature sound like all other Virus TIs. Each voice can use up to four oscillators in parallel including Virtual Analogue, Wavetable, HyperSaw and Grain Oscillator models.
The filter section comprises two independent multi-mode filters with optional Mini Moog emulation and self-resonance. An array of parallel effects is included.
In Multi mode, your patches sound identical and include all of the effects, the company says. The 4 independent parts can be routed to 1 Stereo Analogue or 3 USB outputs streaming audio into your sequencer workstation. The software suite includes a VST, RTAS and AU compatible plug-in allowing for recall, timing and modern automation features.
The audio inputs and outputs can be optionally used as a sound card in your sequencer. The hardware knobs can be used to either control the Virus’ sound engine or compatible third party software plug-ins.
gridsleepNew AFfiliatePosted on 12/30/2012 at 15:00:10Why do they even bother to announce stuff like this when no one who reads these articles could afford one or will ever be likely to get their hands on one. It's just showing off. And all it is is a different color. Like that limited edition bathroom fixture that Moog is making. It's ugly. So what? Really, is there any point to this black Snow besides just drawing attention to hardware synths that fewer and fewer people are buying? That's it, though, isn't it? Desperation. The cold, clammy sweat of fear. The future is data. If you need something physically, you can build it in the 3D printer and then just chuck it in the recycler when you're done. It'll be the Diamond Age, and no need for manufacturers.
