  • Sound Engine

  • Various oscillator models including Virtual Analog, Wavetable, HyperSaw, Grain- and Formant Table types.
  • A maximum of 192 parallel effects in total. Reverb and delay, chorus, phaser, frequency shifter, ring modulator, distortion, 3-band EQ and new Character processors.
  • 2 independent multi-mode filters (HP, LP, BP, BS) and the Analog Filter which was modeled after the Moog MiniMoog™ cascade filter with 6-24 dB Slope and self-oscillation.
  • 32-step user-programmable arpeggiator pattern for every patch.
  • Modulation Matrix with 6 slots each featuring 1 source and 3 destinations.
  • 3 LFOs with 68 waveforms to choose from. 2 fast ADSTR envelopes.
  • Knob quantise for creating stepped controller movements. The stepping automatically syncs to the Virus clock or an incoming MIDI clock.
  • Adaptive control smoothing for jitter-free modulations on all important parameters.
  • Multi mode with embedded patches.


  • Dual DSP system which dynamically allocates its resources. Depending on the complexity of a patch everything in between 20 and 90 voices can be achieved (10-50 voices with Virus TI Snow).
  • 512 RAM patches and 26 banks of each 128 ROM patches which can be exchanged by the user.
  • 6 balanced outputs with +4 dB level and soft limiting algorithm. Studio grade 192 khz D/A converters with S/PDIF digital I/O. 2x24 bit inputs. Surround sound capabilities. The Virus TI Snow has 2 un-balanced outputs and no SPDIF I/O.
  • The tempo of an incoming audio signal can be recognised and the Virus can lock to it within a very short amount of time (typically, for "4 on the floor" - style music, this happens in between 1-3 bars). Thereafter the Virus TI follows the tempo.


  • Virus Control VST/AU/RTAS compatible virtual instrument plug-in included to create an audio link in between the host sequencer and Virus hardware synthesizer.
  • Audio and MIDI inputs and outputs can be used by the sequencer application as an audio and MIDI interface. Total Integration keeps working, even if you prefer to use another audio interface.
  • Sample accurate and delay compensated timing.
  • All knobs on surface can be used to control other software and hardware synthesizers (this feature is not available for the Virus TI Snow).
  • Virus Control Center application for convenient memory backup of the entire Virus TI and exchange of content of ROM banks.
  • Soft- and hardware specifications and details

    Dual DSP system

    The Virus TI DSPs are not only faster, they come in pairs*. A highly effective local buss in between the processors boosts performance even further.
    * Virus TI Snow features only one DSP

    Studio Grade Converters

    192 Khz studio grade D/A converters (+4dB balanced output), with soft limiting algorithm. 24 bit A/D converters. The Virus produces one of the hottest signals in the industry. Live keyboards can leave their DI boxes at home and plug the symmetrical outputs right into the stage box (special cable required).

    Digital I/O and USB

    The Virus TI comes with SP/DIF (44.1khz/48khz) digital I/O as standard. The USB port is compatible with the USB 2.0 Specification and works with USB and Hi-Speed USB systems, peripherals and cables. Port speed is 12 mbit/sec.

    Big and bright display

    Which can show graphics in 128x32 pixels. The display shows up to 4 rows of text and graphics. In most cases three parameters are being displayed at the same time. As a result, there are only 1/3 of the menu pages in comparison to the previous Virus series.


    3 edit knobs underneath the display which can edit three parameters at the same time. The 3 soft knobs can also act as programmable and nameable knobs for every individual patch.

    Painless rack mounting

    Virus TI Desktop only: The entire I/O board can be rotated by 90 degrees which makes rack-mounting the Virus much more fun. Instead of having to find special jack plugs or waste loads of rack space, simply turn the whole I/O section and voilá! - all the sockets are at the back of the rack mounted Virus TI Desktop. (Rack mounting kit is optional).

    Patch memory

    Virus TI Desktop/Keyboard/Polar:512 RAM patches and 3328 ROM sounds + 16 Multi Mode slots which embed all patches used + 112 referring Multi Mode slots. Virus TI Snow: 512 RAM patches and 512 ROM sounds + 64 Multi Mode slots which embed all patches used.

    Tap Tempo

    There is a dedicated Tap tempo button. The tap tempo algorithm used is based on SyncXtreme, Access' acclaimed tempo sync algorithm.

    Illuminated Logo

    Illuminated Access Logo on the rear of the Virus TI Keyboard and Virus TI Polar. The logo pulsates in standby mode, and can be statically on during normal operation or pulsate to the tempo (like the tempo LED) which is especially nice for those drummers used to playing to a visual tempo source.
