A dream synth
Hitmur, 10.08.2018
For a late 90's underground electronic music enthusiast this is a dream synth. Controlled from a sampler/sequencer and using the multitimbrality the possibilities of creating soundscapes of past and present are literally endless.

The sound quality is great. Modulation and sounddesign possibilities are among the best that hardware synthesizers has to offer when using the multi mode. Learning how to optimize your programming to save the DSP resources and get the maximum polyphony out of the synth takes a bit time but the results are rewarding. As this is a quite complex synth it is highly recommended to read Access Music's / Howard Scarr's 'Programming analog synthesizers' and the user manual to understand the what, where, why and how.

The UI can be a hit or miss but the layout of everything is logical and most of the functions in menus are found from dedicated, labeled buttons, which go to the relevant menus. Some parameters need to be dug from deeper multi-page menus, especially the added features from the latest firmware updates.

The Total Integration can be tricky to get working without crashing and this I consider to be the Virus' weakest link.

Pro:
-Effects are good to great quality
-Can be used as an Aux multi effect processor and processing external signal
-Overall sound quality is great
-Modulation possibilities are among the best in hardware synthesizers
-Build quality is great

Neutral:
-Polyphony in multitimbral mode is good to average, depending on how efficiently it is programmed.

Cons:
-Total Integration part is quite unreliable and can cause crashing and other unexpected behavior of computer or software, resulting in BSOD in extreme cases
-Customizing some arpeggiator parameters can only be done from the TI-plugin

Essential
03.04.2017
As a long-time fan of electronic music, this synth was on my wish list for a while. I use it mainly for tracks that need strong characteristic synth lines, as it has such a huge range of possibilities for synth manipulation.

The main pros for me are the comprehensive options for waveforms, voicing, filters, and all types of other effects you might want to put on the signal chain in one quality unit.

On the first day it arrived, I spent the entire afternoon programming perhaps the most disgusting distorted reece bass I've ever heard and I felt like I was 17 again. That is one of the main problems - there's so much you can do on this synth you can easily lose hours just tweaking and tweaking.

Another con is the fact that when you want to save a patch, you have to save it to the software, as the majority of the hardware banks on the synth are used up with presets. You can of course overwrite but they do have some great sounds for inspiration.

Overall though, an undisputed modern champion of the synth world, and well worth the investment.

what a machine
tomasmc1, 15.02.2021
Ive had this unit for a few years now and boy does it keep on giving. I have had no issues with the hardware, Virus control can sometimes be a little glitchy.Contrary to other users reports I have had better success with Virus Control via a powered hub.The build is rock solid and everything works as expected. I originally had the snow but sold it to buy the extra voices.Very Happy

Instant superstar
20.11.2014
Wow. This synth makes me sound like an instant superstar! I can almost play nonsense and still sound good!

The depth of the interface is fairly well exposed on the control surface, there are many instantly accessible aspects to any patch that permit real-time mutations to be made, and the results can almost always be used in a mix. The sonic versatility is vast in depth and breadth, with strong lead sounds that can only really be bettered by analogue equipment, and with pads and "soundscapes" that shimmer and shift very beautifully and naturally when properly programmed. The ubiquity of the Virus in recordings can lead to some preset sounds being rather recognisable and perhaps less valuable for people looking for originality, but we can't blame the Virus for being popular - it can't help it!

I have a few tunes recorded many years ago using arpeggiated analogue synth lines (e.g. SCI Pro-One) that will really benefit from a Virus "make-over" in which I can make a more complex sound with effects to finally create my original idea of muted arpeggios with a very atmospheric presence in the mix. The moment I played the Virus a list of these songs appeared in my mind, it was that evocative. The only problem I have now is that some synths I have always liked sound rather dated! A truly great instrument that has deserved every award it won.
