Very good synth. Prefessional features and classic modern synth sounds. As of OS1.08 there are still some glitches, but its hard to tell at this stage to what extent these are Virus problems or the bugs in sequencers. Id never sell this synth its by far and away the best you can buy.

OS 1.07

Very unstable synth - totally unuseable live and barely worth the hassle in the studio (midi syncing and latency issues, not to mention LOUD pops and clicks and other artefacts in the sound) The integration is a real letdown - I see what they were trying to do but why can't they just get the fucking spec nailed first time around? 16 part multi timbral yet you can only use 2 stereo channels over 16/48 USB - save some room for later Augustus. Well im sure the next version will have USB 2 atleast that way you'll be able to stream upto 12 of the 16 parts over USB. I should imagine by 2009 we might get the full 16 parts - posisibly 2012 by the time we get 16 stereo channels at 24 bit 192khz (which after all is what the internal engine apparently runs at). So its another good step up for Access - another 7 years worth of improvements to come. Too bad they couldnt just get the fucker right from day one and then maybe think about releasing some new products. It reminds me of the time I spent working in a factory - same ingredients/100's of overlapping products. Nothing new

What does the TI sound like? Pick up a Virus A

Is it a good investment for the future? Nope, it'll depreciate considerably as soon as Access up the specs. At this rate you should be able to snag a Virus A for $5

This is the synth that broke the cammels back. You'll see -

The Virus doesn't change its spots....its still cold , digital and ( to my ears ) harsh . Hyped up to the max and ( for me ) failing to deliver - its loaded with cliched sounds and annoying trance arpeggiations... No new sound creation architecture either ( hypersaw anyone ?? ) I wanted to like this synth ( excellent specification and integration ) but it left me cold. The distortion is aggravating and the filters are not smooth and free flowing.It has 21 century specification but 20th century implementation...subjective review no.453675

This is a great machine. It has a lot going for it. The TI feature is great, though some limitations as usuale with USB connections, but the fun part is the VST integration. You can access ( no pun taken ) the synth from a graphical point of view, that's very nice. Compared to the waldorf synths I have it's has a much a much less digital sound. E.g.you can have a more analog sound out of this machine. Mine is the desktop model so I can't comment on the keyboard. The only realy competition for this, I think is the Roland V-Synth XT, but since I have both that's not an issue. Buy or steal one if your into digital hardware synth's.
