In comparison to the Virus B, well if you already have a B, don't bother with the C. The synth engine has remained pretty much the same, however there have been a few tweaks and extensions. In and of itself however the C is an amazing instrument!

Ok, here's my "objective" review:

The Virus C is a fantastic instrument, more than able to become the centre of your studio (after the sequencer, maybe). It sounds cristal clear or gritty and gross, the modulation options are a killer, the dual filter is superb and the upgraded softknobs are a very handy adittion. I love the feels of the knobs and the weight. As I'd never played a Virus b, I can't comment on the changes. The sheer number of presets (1024) gives you plenty of quality electronic material to start with, but it's one of those synths you love to program. Long live good VAs.

It has lots (LOTS) of leds, and they are very, very useful, blinking to the LFO or tempo rates, indicating options, etc. Once you get your way around the LFO/MOD matrix, you become God. An irresistible SexyTechnoGod.

On the minus side: it's a pity you can't upgrade the Virus via hardware (to get digital outputs, more polyphony, you name it). It's a pity it has limitations on the Multi effects (you have only one delay/reverb unit for all parts). It's a pity you can't plug your brain directly into the Virus via wetware.

As I suppose many people wants to compare it to the SN2, let's say that, after two months with the Virus, I sold my SN2r. Not that it's not an incredible synth. The Virus simply sounds better, and they overlap too much. I've never heard or played a Waldorf (except for Attack) to make any comparision. It seems to me that Novation should think of a Supernova III, but it seems almost everybody is concentrating on smaller synths (A-Station and its offspring, MicroKorg, SH32, you name it). Maybe it's the crisis.

A must buy.
