Multiple award-winning hardware synthesizer
with Total Integration plug-in technology

Unparalleled Sound

The Virus is an icon in the history of electronic music, known for its excellent sound and outstanding presets.

Made to perform

Loads of tactile controls make the Virus TI a dream for performers and those who like to tweak sounds.

Total Integration

Marry a virtual instrument plug-in with a hardware synthesizer and enjoy the most powerful combination possible.

Free software upgrades

Continuing Access’ policy of free feature updates since 1997.

Classic signature sound

Even though the Virus is truly multi-talented instrument with great range, you still instantly know it when you hear a it in a production. That’s because we really “get” synthesizer basics: outstanding oscillators, amazing filters and breathtaking effects.

Every part, even in multi-mode, comes with its own chain of independent effects (including reverb and delay). The massive voice count makes it possible to stack even complex sounds for the first time without breaking a sweat.

More about the effects.

Future proof investment

Atomizer is our performance-oriented beat slicer, allowing you to play on your keyboard what others can only cut and paste inside their audio workstation. Features like this keep the Virus at the forefront of innovative sound design.

Music evolves and we evolve the Virus for you. Every day.

Shredder your beats

An audio effect in the Virus’ effect section which allows you to shred live audio using the keyboard. Every key represents a different loop length from 1/2 note to microscopically short phrases. Furthermore, your modulation wheel becomes a DJ style cross fader, the pitchwheel re-pitches the incoming audio in realtime and the whole FX section can be used to truly mangle the signal.

The beauty of being different

Virtual analog oscillators aside, the Virus TI offers an extensive range of musically exciting tonal building blocks. From wavetables, to hypersaw, to grain- and formant table oscillators, every single one was created with complete attention to detail, commitment to innovation, and a passion for musical potential.

That’s why the Virus TI can sound like a burning race bike on its way to hell or a choir of genetically enhanced tooth fairies. It’s just limited by your imagination.

Innovative designs

Often it’s the little things which make all the difference. Section Locking for instance is preset mutation on steroids. You select what you like in a patch, lock it,  and cycle through other presets to load only those aspects of the sound you want to explore changing. Imagine you were basing your lead melody around a user arpeggiator pattern and later in the game you realise that you want to keep the pattern but change the sound. Using Section Locking all you need to do is to lock the arp pattern and start browsing through your entire library to find something suitable.

More than 7000 great presets

As deeper instruments emerge many of us turn towards sound presets instead of building their own patches from scratch. We honour this tendency by giving you one of the largest free sound libraries anywhere, made by professional sound designers.

Even better, we make sure that all sounds officially released for the Virus TI are checked and refined by our internal sound design gurus first. This way we can assure that the sounds have a minimal CPU footprint and maximal flexibility with all sorts of controllers pre-assigned for your enjoyment.

A simple idea that changed the entire game

Since the arrival of software based sequencers and audio plug-ins, the production of electronic music has vastly changed. That’s why we invented Total Integration which enables you to use your Virus TI hardware synthesizer just as you would use a software plug-in. Enjoy the raw horsepower and sound quality of a high end hardware synthesizer without taxing the CPU of your sequencer workstation. Total integration has the added benefit of storing your sounds directly in the project file, eliminating the need for sysex dumps and sound mismatch problems. Lastly, the technology allows sample accurate timing– a first in the world of hardware synths.

The Best Of Both Worlds

Total Integration allows you to stream audio from the Virus TI directly to an audio channel. The benefits are obvious: crystal clear sound, sample accurate timing instead of a sloppy midi connection and total recall. All of the synth’s controls are fully functional and automation is seamlessly simple. Once you work with Total Integration, you will wonder how you ever tolerated the old ways of working, between cable problems, messy MIDI message editing, loose timing, and lost sounds. Total Integration is a complete revolution in a single technology.

Reduce Your Stress Levels

How many times have you opened an old project or song only to realise that the presets required are no longer available in the user memory of your synth? Or perhaps you had edited a patch to accommodate the specific requirement of a different song, only to discover that the change adversely affects your other works. “Total recall” puts an end to these troubles once and for all by automatically saving all patches and settings used in your song right within the project file. You are free to change any of the Virus’ onboard sounds — RAM or even ROM — with zero chance of this causing problems later.

Get Organised

Virus Control is a comprehensive patch editor with a powerfully flexible browser. Managing thousands of patches becomes much less of a chore with categories and sophisticated search function, plus easy drag-and-drop style patch management. Virus Control truly accelerates the search for the right sound. The software automatically syncs with any connected Virus TI, eliminating hassle of data management. Your job is only to focus on what you were here first for: creating music.

Refine Your Music

The hassle of 1980s MIDI production is the last thing anyone wants. That’s why modern producers so enjoy the ease and power of plug-in effects and automation. Total Integration facilitates modern production techniques by streaming audio from the Virus TI directly into your favorite DAW, enabling you to refine the sound coming out of the Virus with your choice of plug-ins. In difference to less-developed USB-powered synths, the Virus is able to stream discreetly directly into our Virus Control plug-in instead of arriving at the audio inputs of the audio interface. Automation is just as easy, with control lanes for sound parameters at your fingertips.
