The Virus TI2 Desktop from Access Music is a high-quality desktop/rack mount synthesizer with a wealth of capabilities. Designed to work hand-in-hand with your Mac or PC, the Virus TI2 Desktop includes VIRUSControl software that automatically detects the Virus TI2 Desktop when a connection is made over USB. Other connectivity of the unit includes 1/4" I/Os, MIDI in, out, and thru connectors, S/PDIF digital I/Os and a 1/4" headphone output.

The Virus TI2 Desktop offers an analog feel, with a number of buttons and knobs to work with. Despite the analog look, it offers full digital power and flexibility by integrating with your studio and supporting 24-bit/192kHz audio. Over 80 voices are provided in the Virus TI2 Desktop, along with a programmable arpeggiator, multiple effects, oscillators, and more.

The Mod Matrix of the Virus TI2 Desktop has six sources with three destinations each for excellent real-time control and freedom of patch programming. The Multi Mode embeds 16 patches so you can make adjustments without overwriting other programs. For a full-featured and versatile digital synthesis solution that's sleek enough to be mounted on your desk or in a standard audio rack, look no further than the Virus TI2 Desktop.

        Comments about Access Music Virus TI2 Desktop - Totally Integrated Synthesizer:

        I have wanted one of these for years, and this site's pricing made it irresistible. This is a fabulous synth, a digital "analog imitator". Its analog sounds compare to the original analogs of decades ago; I've owned and played many of those old analogs, and cannot honestly distinguish a difference.

        I use it to produce both electronic and standard soundtracks, and it's fully integrated, via plugin, into Logic Pro, Pro Tools and Cubase (I own and use all three of those programs for various purposes, and the Virus Control Plugin works beautifully in all three.). Running an early Mac Pro with dual duo-Xeons, an asio buffer of 128 samples through an RME interface, I get a full 16 tracks without glitches. It comes with thousands of patches, thousands more are free at the Access site, and it is incredibly simple to save the sets that you self-program.

        Everything positive I've read about it is true; but I still didn't know how well-made the hardware was. Great machine.

            This synth will never be outdated

            Comments about Access Music Virus TI2 Desktop - Totally Integrated Synthesizer:

            Every thing in it is stunning.
            I can emulate any classy sound
            with it, from moog to oberheim,
            Roland Teebees...
            The filters are warm and smooth.
            All the FX are very good, especially
            the EQ.
            It´s also possible to create very
            complex sounds, by using the multimode
            edit, where it´s allowed to mix up to
            16 patches.
