Access Virus TI

What do you guys think of the Access Virus TI? I've seen a couple Youtube videos on it and it sounds amazing but I'm wondering how easy it is to use and how flexible it is.
Also is there a stand alone software version available out there for those that don't want/need the outboard gear?

It's been talked about quite a bit here. The Search option will help you.

And no, Access does not make a software-only version. There have also been threads on what software sounds similar to it. Again, use the Search and you should have no trouble finding those.

Yes, there is a software-only version of the virus (Virus Powercore, which is basically an Indigo VSTi), but, as far as I know, it's been OOP for a while and it's no longer supported. Not to mention it's not compatible with the latest TI series.

Anyhow, the TI synths can be totally integrated (that's what TI stands for) into your DAW and act like they were VSTi's. All you need is a USB cable. Unfortunately, a standalone application for the TI is not provided, but there are several ways to make a standalone from a VSTi. This free application, for example, can turn any VST into a standalone:

Like a VSTi that can not synch the arpeggiator to the host tempo, that is.

Regardless, it's a great synth, even though the TI part is a it crap.

I bought one second hand, and I already had the powercore one, and I love it. It is a very versatile synth and the only thing I own that compares is omnisphere.

Actually, omnisphere probably surpasses it in many things.

Hahahaha.

No. They wouldn't be able to sell the hardware anymore if that was the case.
