The Access Virus has often been referred as a “game changer.” Shaping the sound of modern music, the Virus remains a sought after piece of hardware for those looking for unparalleled power and flexibility either in the studio or live on stage.
First introduced in 1997, the Access Virus is known for its unmistakeable signature sound; a sound that has been embraced by artists ranging from Depeche Mode to Dr. Dre. With innovative designs and a vast array of presets, the only limit on the Access Virus sound is your imagination.
The Access Virus TI v2 Polar Total Integration Synthesizer and Keyboard Controller is arguably the flagship of the Access Virus line. It features a wide variety of powerful oscillator and filter models including virtual analogue, hypersaw, wavetable and graintable. The TI is also totally integrated with proprietary technology that links to your computer, creating a totally unified system to work from. While the TI is made with the future in mind, it’s not without its fair share of old-school touches. Its Character control emulates the feeling of classic analog gear, while a ring shifter and tape delay option can bathe your music in that sought after lo-fi sound. All of these features come within a unit that is built like a tank; durable enough to handle a life on the road.
For those looking for a Virus with added portability, the Access Virus TI Snow is definitely going to suit your needs. Compact and packing a serious punch, the TI Snow offers three main oscillators and one sub oscillator per voice, two independent filters, and two-dimensional modulation. With the same sound engine as the larger Access Virus models and a tiny footprint, the TI Snow is an invaluable addition to your collection of gear. Designed with the true artist in mind, the Access Virus collection has had a hand in everything from mainstream pop singles to sweeping movie scores. Whether you want to be the next Prodigy or Hans Zimmer, the Access Virus collection gives you the power to create something truly remarkable.
