Do you Virus but not EDM? Keyboard Synthesizers
Old 8th August 2014

Before I dove into the vast ITB world of EDM (which I currently use my TI for in vast quantities) I was very much into the underground synth-pop genre of music. Where hoover type sounds and build-up swells before a confetti moment break-down are non existent. Does this count as non EDM? The Virus is such a versatile synth, it can probably be used for anything if the right programmer is behind the wheel.

The Bank A of my Virus KB is stuffed with very usable classic EP /Organ / Harpischord / and lead sounds that I used to play in a Rock band.
It isn't related to any genre at all. Very very flexible synth still today... If it stops working I replace it by another one.

Before buying Virus I had a dilemma if this synth will be useful in other genres than trance / EDM.
These two demos from youtube convinced me to buy and I do not regret the decision:

That's pretty cool & one of the reasons I bought a Virus. It's like buying 16 synths without paying for 16 synths. I understand you're not likely to get all 16 parts to play at once, but it's also not very practical to try.
