Version 2.0.0 is tha bomb. Fixed all the bugs including the distortion issues. Adds even more powerful sounds, the darkest set ever on a Virus (Skinny Puppy, behave...) I own the Virus 61 and just got a desktop to make this the most powerful setup ever! Peace.

The latest OS rev fixes everything that I can tell. This is a fantastic VA synth; the online demos made me crazy and I bought the thing. There's a good reason for all the buzz - it's a wonderful electronic instrument. Try it - you will like it.

I love the sounds I can get on the Virus TI desktop. No one synth can do everything, but for detailed texture and sweet rich tones the Virus is the best I've heard. I am not using it with a computer and I haven't had any problems with crashing. The support on-line when I have asked questions is fast and clear, often within an hour! OK the manual isn't laid out in a logical overview kind of way with a Quick Start Manual and a schematic of how the different sections interface, but the manual is written in a way to encourage experimenting, which I like. Like with anything try before you buy and see if its your thing. I tried it in a store and was blown away and I knew I had to have one.

The Virus TI is an excellent VA synth. I also own a Jupiter 6 and MKS70, and the Virus more than holds its own against these and other vintage analogue synths - and also offers vastly more programability.

While early OS versions clearly had major problems such as the earth shattering pops and cracks on the audio output, the current 2.0 OS release version appear to be solid and reliable.

Main grumbles: skimpy front panel controls make editing a pain (why only 4 knobs for 5 evelope parameters?!) as does the lack of any coherent documentation with diagrams to illustrate the signal routing and processing options. Fortunately, the Mac/PC software includes a decent graphical editor.

Main pros: simply the best VA sound - capable of subtle analogue emulations and sounds all of its own (FM, Wavetable, Formants, ...).
