nothing can be said to qauntify the usefulness and shear enjoyment this keyboard can provide you. i am so happy with this keyboard that i have to wear diapers everytime i play it so that i dont have an "accident" from over excitement. in all seriousness i have owned and currently own several keyboards...(nord 2, nord 3, triton, emu xtreme lead, prophecy, waldorf q etc.) and none of them can even touch the virus. the sounds that it produces are so rich and thick i cant believe that it is digital. i have installed the soundiver editor and i am even more impressed. (now my diapers have a full load) the support that access provides you within this program is unreal. you have full control of all the fx and functions at a mouse click. all of the functions that lay somewhat hidden in virus menu's are instantly available in a nice clean g.u.i. i could go on for days. i had to wait for 6 months to get my virus, but it was well worth the wait. i have owned it for about a year now and wouldnt trade it for the world. thank you access!

the virus kb, is one mean SOB.

it is to the low frequency spectrum as what the nord lead is to the high frequencies. this synth can make sounds to rip your beating heart out of your ribcage. it has quite a wide array of sounds it is capable of, and it has very nice workmanship. just comparing the keys or knobs to other synths and you can see that access really cares about good quality, most other keys from diff manufacturers are only about half as thick, the virus has nice plush and thick keys, and the knobs are soo nice to tweak. when i turn on my virus i can just play it and have time melt away. very addictive piece of equipment!!!

when i first got my virus, i has some technical problems with it, it was used so there wasnt a warranty, but i talked to company, and they answered all my problems i was having.

i am very pleased, access has very prompt and helpful people working for them, A++ support for this synth

oh yes, and the new OS 4.51 with 1024 patches makes me feel like a kid in a candy store. i cant stop playing with this astounding instrument!

well i have been playing with this thing for about a month, the lcd interface seems small at first, but it tells you all the important information you want to know, i have os 4.07 right now and there are 512 patches, and half of those are user patches, there is no onboard sequencer, but there is midi for that

the keys seem to be strange at first because they are not weighted, so they seem springy, but this is not a major problem, because it is easy to adjust to, and the virus kb can also turn off the local keyboard and a remote controller can be used exactly like the b version

the new os 4.5 will have 1024 patches available so this is definately something to look forward to

this thing handles all types of sounds very nicely, i would say that its shining point is its ability to create insanely unique sounds, it has a random patch generator that can take an existing patch and alter a defined number of variables from 1-127 , and it takes only a second to do this with a push of a button,

i have not had much experience with the vocoder or running sounds through its processor, this seems to be a bit more complicated than just handling patches

oh yes it also has 6 1/4' outputs for your all encompasing needs
