Access announced the Ti sometime ago and are still working on the final builds of the complex DSP crunching code at it’s core. The basic building blocks of any sound are it’s oscillators and the Virus Ti has them in bucketloads. Access Music’s Ben Crosland took us through some astonishing implementations of the unique HyperSaw feature and wavetable waveforms with some configurations leading to 32 osc per voice! Needless to say it was jolly fat.
The Virus Ti also has a USB interface for direct integration to your sequncer – so your Ti sound can be recorded directly into the computer with no A/D conversion. There’s also close MIDI integration with the editing software making the setup of the 16 part multi-timbrality a breeze. It also makes selection of table based data and envelope drawing as easy as an easy thing.
Access are working on the final builds of the Ti’s OS right now and expect to ship the unit in the next 45 days or sooner.
