Access unveil the compact-sized Virus TI Snow 14/01/08
We havenâ€™t had an official press release, maybe they are waiting till the NAMM show starts on Thursday, but a visit to the Access website reveals the new Virus TI Snow which the company are describing as the perfect companion for live musicians and laptop producers.
Access tell us that the new model is the most affordable Virus TI ever and compare it to buying a sports car for the price of a scooter.
The Virus TI Snow measures just 11 inches by 6, (28 x 15 cm), but has the same sound engine as its bigger brothers and comes equipped with analog ins and outs, MIDI in/out and USB.
Access say that you can get to over 1000 sounds with a maximum of four button pushes and navigate effortlessly to the most exciting sound parameters thanks to adaptive menus and an all-new Easy Edit mode. They tell us that the Snow is driven by an arsenal of virtual analog, wavetable and granular oscillators including a first class Mini Moog cascade emulation and that there are more than 6000 free patches from well-known sound designers.
