The Virus TI2 Polar effectively one-ups Access's previous TI model with its redesigned front panel and housing, 25 percent boost of processing power, updated OS with onboard effects like Tape Delay and Frequency Shifter, and the enhanced Virus Control 3.0 plug-in. Ideal for studio musicians, producers, and touring musicians alike, the 37-key virtual-analog synth is both easy to play live and a pleasure to keep in the studio.
Super Fat FX Section Thanks to the OS4 update, this compact integrated modeling synth has a rather robust effects section. The Virus TI2 Polar adds a Tape Delay effect, a Frequency Shifter, several different distortion algorithms, and an effect called Character.
With Character, you can shape the tone of a preset and recall the sounds of several vintage and well-known synthesizers, as well as emphasis certain aspects of the patch to allow it to cut better through the mix or fade it into the background with an extra-wide stereo field.
Its Tape Delay is especially sweet during live performances. It syncs smoothly to tempo, letting you decide if a Doppler effect takes place when changing the tempo. When making the stereo Frequency Shifter and the Ring Modulator algorithms, Access turned to '70s stompboxes for inspiration.
6 Delectable Distortions on the Menu OS4 gives the Virus TI2 Polar six saucy distortion types modeled on vintage guitar distortion pedals: Mint Overdrive (tubes!), Curry Overdrive (extreme), Saffron Overdrive (harsh and grungy), Onion Overdrive (fuzzy), Pepper Overdrive (clean), and Chili Overdrive (classic fuzzbox). These virtual stompboxes feature carefully modeled distortion curves and tonal characteristics, as well as tone controls where appropriate.
You can use the distortions to add anything from warm tube-like tones to circuit-bent-like mangled messes to your music. Featuring a wide dynamic range and controls to customize the sound, the distortion algorithms on the Virus TI2 Polar also have improved bit and sampling-rate reduction, making it simple to change the quality and cutoff point with precise, continuously variable control.
Many Sound Design Options Also courtesy of OS4, a powerful arpeggiator to matrix feature allows you to use the arpeggiator pattern to modulate any of the parameters available to the modulation matrix. You can use this to create dynamic, rhythmic patterns within a sound, kind of like what you can achieve with a step sequencer.
The synth's Vowel Filter provides an effective way to vocalize any sound, vocoder style, while a Comb Filter is capable of creating anything from subtle, pitched overtones to extreme time-warped deconstruction of any given patch.
Completely Overhauled Virus Control Plug-in With a redesigned user interface, Virus Control is poised to infect you with some virtual-analog excitement. Giving you total control over the Virus TI2 Polar from within your DAW, version 3.0 of the plug-in features a side chain input that allows you to mangle audio from a sequencer track with the FX and sound engine of the hardware Virus (for selected hosts only).
The Access Virus TI2 Polar sports a 37-key synth-action keyboard, along with alloy and wooden side panels. It's the ultimate convergence of hardware and software, putting VST control and analog synthesis at your fingertips.
