Access has just released their public beta of Virus TI OS v5.0, which features new filters and new envelopes.
According to Access:
OS5 gives you what thousands of Virus users always wanted: additional envelopes and new filters. The new operating system represents a new milestone and enables you to create sounds which were simply impossible with previous operating system versions.
We love our analog gear in the Synthtopia Music Laboratory, ranging from a vintage Sequential Circuits Pro One synth to a Future Retro 777 bassline synthesizer to a large format modular synth. So, we know that a lot of readers may view the question of this post as heresy.
But the analog renaissance of the last decade has resulted in a lot of great digital synths being underrated…..
Access Music has released an update to the Virus TI OS, which can be downloaded free of charge from the Access Music website.
Here’s what’s new in the Virus TI update:
Vintage Chorus was modeled after one of the most famous choruses built in the late 70s. A flexible subset of parameters allows seamless “morphing” from one emulation to another without having to change the algorithm and stop the sound. It lets you emulate the famous chorus ensemble sound found in many productions back from 70s and 80s.
Air Chorus is based on ‘creating the Chorus effect in the air’, right in between the speakers. In difference to many other chorus effects, According to Access, it works in a more subtle way and opens the stereo panorama up.
Rotary speaker emulation – offers the usual controls such as a fast/slow setting in combination with creative controls such as microphone distance as well as a crossover setting which allows you to limit the effect to a certain frequency range.
Modulation matrix sources – allow Virus TI users to add further “analog” feeling to over 100 modulation destinations.
