../ Access Shipping Virus TI Synths in October
Access announced a shipping date of October 3, 2005 for their new line
of TI hardware synths. The synths were originally announced 18 months ago and were demonstrated almost a year ago at Winter NAMM, but never materialized
The new Access TI Pølar with white LEDs - Drool Bucket please...
Access' groundbreaking Total Integration (TI) technology allows the synth to behave
just like a software synthesizer within the leading Digital Audio Workstations (DAW), a breakthrough that many manufacturers attempted but never achieved.
Access' philosophy was to ship the new Ti's only when the synth was perfected and not a moment earlier.
How does it work? A scalable USB link connects the Virus to a Mac or PC for total integration of synth and studio.
The VIRUSControl plug-in automatically detects and connects the synth, ensuring a hassle-free configuration every time.
From inside a host application, the plug-in enables the new Virus hardware to appear as a multi-channel VST/AU
soft-synth with up to 4 sub-mixes (or 2 stereo). Access' proprietary driver technology makes VIRUS TI the world's first hardware synthesizer with sample-accuracy timing and a
delay-compensated audio/MIDI connection. Wow!
Seamless interconnectivity also provides a real benefit in the software sequencer environment. All multi-timbral
sounds and settings used for a project are stored within the DAW for true snapshot total recall of all parameters - no more writing down all your settings for each track.
The new TI series also includes editor and librarian functions with no SysEx or 3rd party software hassles. Sweet!
The new Access TI Desktop
With 24-bit 192KHz balanced analog, S/PDIF I/O and MIDI in and out ports, the new Virus is perfect to utilize
as the main Audio and MIDI I/O center for your entire rig.
These functions are especially practical for the laptop studio, offering an unmatched range of features and capabilities from one product.
Additionally, a new Remote Mode
allows the Virus hardware to become a control surface for any MIDI-capable device or software, mapping each of the 33 knobs to a specific MIDI message.
TI ships with a
great selection of templates and includes 32-user memories for custom controller maps.
Three models are available, the super-sexy Pølar $2560, the Keyboard $2560, and the Desktop $1895
