The Access Virus TI2 Desktop Module is a legendary and award winning virtual-analog synthesizer in a portable solution for artists and performers. Sturdily constructed, the Virus TI2 desktop has a metal enclosure and wooden dressing on the front. A ton of encoders on the front panel gives you access to the most crucial sound-design components. The Virus TI2 is simple to navigate and reduces the need to sift through endless menus. The TI2 has stereo analog inputs. This gives you the option to send external sound sources into the Virus’ engine. To top if off, there is also an optional rack-mount kit available.
Welcome to Planet V There are not many modern synthesizers which can claim to have shaped the sound of music -- from electronica to soundtrack -- as much as the Virus line of synthesizers has. The Virus is known as much for its flexibility and powerful sound as for Total Integration, our award winning way to interconnect a hardware synthesizer with your DAW.
The first Virus was released in 1997 and each new iteration has added more features more powerful hardware, and greater musical potential. That evolution explains why the Virus TI series is so sought after and why it receives such praise from owners, press, and fans all over the world.
Artists including Depeche Mode, Madonna, Linkin Park and the Prodigy tour with a Virus-based setup in 2009. Producers such as Sasha, Pete Tong, Roger Sanchez and Dr. Dre consider the Virus a core part of their studios. Composers such as Hans Zimmer, James Newton Howard, John Powell and Mark Isham are enthusiastic Virus users, utilising its signature sound for their Hollywood blockbuster soundtracks.
Virus TI Desktop This synthesizer will make any desktop proud! The TI Desktop features an all-metal enclosure with a wooden strip on the front. Loads of knobs and buttons give direct access to the most important sound shaping parameters. This range of instant access hands-on control will delight those who don't like menu diving. Like all other Virus TI synthesizers, a stereo analogue input offers the power to process external signals through the Virus' sound engine. An optional 19" rack mounting kit is available for purchase.
A simple idea that changed the entire game Since the arrival of software based sequencers and audio plug-ins, the production of electronic music has vastly changed. That's why we invented Total Integration which enables you to use your Virus TI hardware synthesizer just as you would use a software plug-in. Enjoy the raw horsepower and sound quality of a high end hardware synthesizer without taxing the CPU of your sequencer workstation. Total integration has the added benefit of storing your sounds directly in the project file, eliminating the need for sysex dumps and sound mismatch problems. Lastly, the technology allows sample accurate timing-- a first in the world of hardware synths.
