Big Virus sounds within a tiny package is what the newest synth from Access is all about. The Virius Ti Snow packs the same powerhouse synth engine found in its big brother and is 100% compatible with all patches. The Ti integration adds VST/AU implementation allowing the Snow to be programmed and automated via a plug in editor in the host software. It also streams two addition stereo channels via the USB audio connection. The high portability factor is aimed at musicians who aren't inclined to lug around a heavyweight keyboard like the Ti Polar out to live gigs and studio hopping.
The Snow is expected to fall early February with a price tag of around £700 and comes complete with a nifty messenger bag to carry it in.
4 multi-timbral parts
one pair of stereo inputs / outputs
USB connection for Ti Integration
Oscillator models - virtual analog, hypersaw, wavetable and graintable types.
FX - reverb, delay, eq, distortion, lo-fi effects, bass boost, phaser and chorus/flanger
