I have had it for a week and really dived into the editing and can't find my way back to sane life. It's completely action-packed, capable of doing a good electric piano as well as a real phat saw lead. All it needs is editing.

It sits perfectly in the mix, but still has it's own very typical sound. I can understand people either hate it or love it, because of the typical sound. I find it very untrue leads can sound the same, it has to with editing.

For me editing was kinda easy to learn, no real learning curve. If it's your first contact with the world of hardware synthesis it can be hard though.

The thing has a very sturdy and reliable look and I love the lights (yeah i'm into cheezy stuff). I produce mainly psychedelic trance and some progressive breakbeat/drum and bass and it really covers my wishes to the fullest.

OS 4.9 is out and adds the same features as in OS 6 for the C series. Hands on for EVER releasing FREE OS updates.

Virus B sounds indeed very warm through my Mackie vlz mixer.

Access and Elektron are providing the best support ever.

Wont bor with the specs! But this synth is absolutly amazing! Covers a wide range of analog synth/ trance sounds without drawing breath. Perfect for deep proggy trance producers. Its trong areas are soundscape sounds, bass sounds (analogz and digi) and sequential riff and lead sounds. May its just mine but the pads seem a bit on the week side and teeny bit crust somnetimes. Phatt leads sounds can sound the samey now and then. DO NOT GET ME WRONG they are highly usable and energetic. 16 parts 1000 sounds how can you go wrong.

More sphisticated sounds than my Novation Nova 2 keybourd and nearly as fresh as the Alesis Ion.

SERIOUSLY BUY it now! Second hand it fetches for $450!

If you want a powerful synth with a whiole host of vibrant, varied sequential arpeggiating bassline morphing sounds as well as a good dose of leads and sequs for techno proggy foder... don't wait! There is no ANTIDOTE for this virus.... 4.1 out of 5

Not 5 beacuse you cant have reverb and delay at the same time in multi- abit annnoying but with 6 outputs and a quadra effects unit the trivial problem is sorted! Not quite Novation effects set up but pretty close!

I hate synths when the presets sound crap and different in multi mode. This synth is not in that category. Its beef comes from the synthesis and salad dressing in the effects unit. Best of using internal reverb and patching a delay units for its 4 outputs.

Not gonna sell this kit! Chow

I can't believe I'm reading people actually comparing the Virus to a Micro Q. A Micro Q? C'mon people, that box sounds so digital!!! I have Nords, Novations, Waldorfs, Rolands, Korgs - and if I'm going to start a new track or need true inspiration, I turn to the virus first. The Virus is simply the best VA I've ever heard (and yes, that includes the Nord Lead - I have a 2). There is just about nothing the Virus can't do. Do yourself a favor, spend the money and get a Virus - you'll be glad you did.
