Access describe their new Virus TI Snow as the perfect companion for live musicians and laptop producers and tell us that the new model is the most affordable Virus TI ever - they 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.

    Nice machine, easy to use, but guys, 1350$ for this it's so much!!! Waldorf's "blofeld" with 16 multi-timbral and also comb filter, 1 more lfo with 550$, and quality!!! Why 1350 and not 650 or 700?

    Usually the MSRP is higher than the street price... hopefully we'll be able to get it for around a grand. It seems to sound great, and I like the portability factor. I'll be checking it out for sure when it ships. Of course I'll be eagerly awaiting the Blofeld too, which may be an even better bargain.

    TI Snow has a few benefits over the Blofeld, including the fact that it's an audio interface, and (this is the big one) the 'total integration' means that it is a fully-editable software synth.

    The Blofeld is really cool, but given the choice I think the TI Snow offers more. (I haven't even gone into how sweet the new Atomizer app looks).

    $1350 for 4 part multi? Is this a joke? The Blofeld sounds as good if not better and is less than half the price. I think the guys over at access music are pricing themselves out of the home studio market.

    TRINITI,

    you clearly don't know shit. If you had read anything you would know that this is based on Digital analog synthesis,fm, etc... Keep your band in a box keyboards because they suck. I bought the snow for $750 on ebay and it is awesome. I own teh moog voyager, alongside a triton, nord stage,a jp8000, an ION, a JUNO D not mention every soft synth imagined. THIS KEYBOARD IS WORTH IT. The audio I/O alone and what you can manipulate make it worth it.

    Man I got a Snow and I tell you... shit on Waldorf. Waldorf is for kids... And TI software is awesome!!! Distortion, delays, stereo widener, and a lot of cool things that Waldorf doesn´t even smell. Thanks Access for this tiny terror
