This is PHAT, a must-buy synth.

This the sickest piece of gear I own. These things are damn near impossible to get your hands on. They are on back-order in the US for the next eight months. My buddy distributes gear and found one of the last ones in the US. If you are looking for a synth, look no more. But have a little patience and be prepared to wait for it. It is totally worth it and the sounds that this thing creates will make you wanna vomit. the only thing that I don't like, but I still work with,is that most of the sounds are techno-based while I am going for hip hop and R&B sounds.

Had this puppy for about 2 months, and now that I know it like the back of my hand, I think I can review it. So...

Best synth I've ever used - hands down. But, I'll list a couple of the quirks first:

1. Voices can be mystereously eaten up even when notes are not being played. (ie, your poly goes down seemingly for no reason)

2. Crashes a little more than I would like. (crashed 4 times in the 2 months i've owned 'er)

Then there are weird little annoyances like in Multi Mode, it tells you that individual sounds are not saved, but does not tell you which ones.

Now the pros...

Sound quality is beyond words. I promise this thing can synthesize ANY sound you've heard in your favorite tracks. Arpeggiator is very good. We're doing live techno and the indigo is perfect for it. Small, portable, keyboard (can you imagine hauling a virus KB out to a gig in a DJ booth?) syncs to clock very well, and the internal routing is great for compression, external FX, etc. We run this with a MC-307 and an Electribe ER1 (great box).

Best things about synth engine : - 3 LFOS with simple, extensive routing - Up 4 OSCs for a patch w/noise! 64 Waveforms available for both OSCs and LFOs!!

Now that I'm extremely familiar with this machine, I can truly say I'm very happy with the thing. The synth engine is mad powerful, as well as ridiculously easy to use. Its small, portable and rugged.

4.8 stars / out of 5

One more side note, the newest OS gives you 256 more spaces to save your patches in! Access is a great company for stuff like that.

Feel free to email me if you have questions, or are interestted in our live setup.

This bugger(virus) is the most powerful synth I have ever layed my hands on, I am soooo pleased with it, I spent a lot of time comparing it to the SNII(also a good synt) but I couldn't get over how crappy the reverb sounded on the SNII. I would have bought the virus anyway, cause it totally rocks and has a fat, crisp sound.

After looking for over a year for a decent synth my search ended here, have only had it for a week and just getting used to all the features, the sound is unbelievable, i doubt anyone would not be impressed with the way this thing can churn out just about any sound, highly recommended, and only had to wait a week to get one! :)
