I am stuck between the Nova and the Virus. Do both offer programable arpeggios? That is important to me. I mostly do trance, hip hop, house, and DnB. I know they both sound great, but which is more user friendly to program?

Why was my previous posting removed? It was my opinion about Virus not being able to sound like Fairlight. I don't believe I violated any SonicState rule. The comment was on topic. I happen to own both Virus B and Fairlight III and thus was trying to express my opinion and point out to the fact that one of the previous commentators said that Virus can sound like Fairlight, which in my opinion can't.

I now have an A and a B. I got the B (s/h)as a replacement but am not so sure because of al the bugs in B's latest OS. I always work in multisingle mode and I think the programmers hadn't anticipated this. Anyway great machine, very nice samplerate reduction options. If you want bug-free, get an A.

Owned my for a year. This unit puts all other VAs in its price range... or even $400 of its price range... to shame.

Enough has been said about how good it sounds. It is amazing. And,if you can program, you can get it to sound like damn near anything you want. This unit is NOT just for electro/techno heads. I have programmed more ripping Clavi and Rhodes sounds on this beast that you'd thing the little guy was sportin' a fro. Or, if you want to Fairlight it up 'ala Herbie Hancock's "Rocket" or ARP it up ala (old Skool) Prince's "For U" this little unit can do that too.

For my 2 cents, I just don't think their is a vintage anaolog sound that this thing can't cover.

And it just sits so damn well in a mix...

Ya can't go wrong... if you can find one ;-).

ok, the virus is king of the va's for sub bassess and edgy, techy sounds. But it doesen't have anywhere the midrange weight of a real analog. It's a great synth, but don't buy it to emulate an analog. After six months of tweaking, I'm not much closer to an MS-20. KILLER for d'n'b subs, though.
