4-PAYMENT PLAN
Access has taken their best Virus synthesizer and made it even better with the Virus TI2 Keyboard Integrated Modeling Synthesizer. It's all you need to start making amazing virtual analog sounds on stage or in the studio. This fully fledged analog-modeling synthesizer offers 61 semi-weighted keys, and enough knobs and buttons to allow you to sculpt your waves to your heart's delight. It comes with over 3,000 patches right out of the box, with room to add another 500 of your own. Like any Access Virus synthesizer, the TI2 offers dual synthesis engines with numerous waveforms to choose from and all the filters and effects you ever need.

2nd Gen Upgrades: New OS, More Processing Power and Sweet New Effects

The best analog modeling synthesizer just got better with second generation upgrades and a new OS. Offering 25% more processing power than its predecessor, the TI2 is packed with new effects like tape delay and frequency shifter, plus six new distortion effects modeled after real vintage distortion pedals.

Virtual Analog: A Huge Palette of Waveforms and Filters

The TI2 achieves its rich virtual analog sounds via dual signal processing engines driven by all-digital DSPs. Its architecture is modular in the sense that it can simulate endless combinations of signal paths, modeling a variety of different oscillation and filter types, granting the user the ability to sculpt their waves using three low frequency oscillators, 68 selectable waveforms and two filter envelopes, and up to 192 effects at a time. Because it's virtual analog, polyphony on the TI2 varies depending on which patch you're using and how complicated its waveform, what filters and mods are active, etc. It even offers a two-dimensional modulation matrix which simulates complex wiring schemes which were previously only available with massive analog cabinets.

TI Means Total Integration

TI means total integration, and total integration means the TI2 works seamlessly with your current studio recording environment. Just connect the TI2 to your computer via the provided USB cable and it will appear as a virtual instrument within your DAW. Doing so expands the user interface, granting the user new, intuitive ways for sculpting their waves. User settings will be saved when you exit the program so your virtual synth will be just how you left it the next time you load it as a virtual instrument. And if you don't work with a DAW, don't worry -- with 61 semi-weighted keys and all the knobs you need to tweak your sound right on the unit, the TI2 is all you need in a standalone synthesizer.

Product Description

Here's what you get with the Access Virus TI2 Keyboard:
- The convenience of a VST software synth with the power of a hardware synth.
- Hands on control saves from using a mouse or MIDI controller to tweak parameters.
- OS updates are constantly adding features and improvements.
- Unmatched sounds and effects.
- Same features as the Access Virus TI2 Desktop, but with a pro-grade keyboard.

The Access VIRUS TI2 synthesizer keyboard is designed to lead the world in a completely different direction. Total Integration uses innovative technology to greatly expand the VIRUS Synthesizer, resulting in an advanced stage/standalone instrument, while simultaneously extending the product capabilities with a suite of compelling studio integration features.

The Virus TI2 Synthesizer has 25% more calculating power and sports a redesigned housing and front panel than its predecessor. Access also used materials to bring down the weight of the keyboard. On the software side of things, a major feature update, OS4, adds several FX such as a Tape Delay, Frequency Shifter and several Distortion algorithms along with a feature called Character.

Character allows you to adjust the overall tone of a preset reminiscent of several vintage and well-known synthesizers. In addition you can 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. The distortions were built from scratch and feature an extreme dynamic range along with sophisticated controls to tailor the sound to your specific needs. They can add everything from warm, tube-like overtones to complete sonic deconstruction more reminiscent of circuit-bending. The algorithms also include a revamped bit and sampling-rate reduction, allowing you to change the quality and cutoff point with precise, continuously variable control.

The stereo Frequency Shifter and the Ring Modulator are state of the art algorithms modeled with old '70s stomp boxes in mind.

The Tape Delay goes way beyond the possibilities of the real Tape Delays in the '60s and '70s. It smoothly syncs to tempo, lets you decide if a Doppler effect takes place when changing the tempo, and even switching the delay time between presets is all smooth, making it perfect for performers. Last but not least, a modification to the main VCA algorithm enables OS4 users to design gating FX known from electro and minimal influenced music.

Virus Control has received a completely redesigned user-interface thanks to various improvement requests over the last years. The plug-in now features a side chain input allowing you to mangle audio from a sequencer track with the FX and sound engine of the hardware Virus (for selected hosts only).

OS4

OS4 for the entire Virus TI line of synthesizers brings 6 more distortion flavors to the table, modeled on vintage guitar distortion pedals. Every one of these classic pedals is famous for its distinctive character and has been exploited by some of the greatest guitar heroes of all time. The virtual stomp boxes feature carefully modeled distortion curves and tonal characteristics and include tone controls where appropriate.

- Mint Overdrive - The sound of this one just screams tubes - a very special kind of overdrive which results in a wonderful smokey tone. Good for achieving a subtle distortion effect whilst still retaining headroom for dynamics.
- Curry Overdrive - A more extreme distortion, like in the original, this does not feature a Tone control.
- Saffron Overdrive - The orange one. A very harsh distortion, popular with the grunge movement.
- Onion Overdrive - A big distortion effect famous for its fuzzy character.
- Pepper Overdrive - A clear, powerful distortion thats perfect for making leads cut right through the mix. Tone control to soften sound with a lowpass filter.
- Chili Overdrive - A classic "fuzzbox" overdrive. No tone control, just in-your-face fuzz.

Vowel Filter

This effect is a simple and effective way to vocalize any sound similar to the way a talk box or vocoder would do.

Comb Filter

The comb filter creates everything from subtle, pitched overtones to extreme time-warped deconstruction of any given patch.

Arpeggiator To Matrix

OS4 for the Virus TI series introduces a powerful feature that allows you use the arpeggiator pattern to modulate any of the parameters available to the modulation matrix. You can use this to create dynamic, rhythmical patterns within a sound, similar to what you can achieve with a step sequencer.

Power Supply: Power Supply, Virus TI Desktop/Snow only (Included)
Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (12 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "If you are serious about your synths than the Access Virus is the one to get!"
Sound: Where to begin? How about HOLY CRAP this Synth rocks! For starters there's probably thousands of patches and I still haven't heard all of them. The TI2 completely replaced my 1010lt sound card. I have the Whiteout edition and the color of the led lights add extra flare to the amazing sound on this keyboard. Feature: The really great part for me was the virtual instrument plug-in, it quickly installed in my Sonar 8.5 and took the work load off my PC! Ease of Use: Yep its a steep learning curve (at least for me) but you have complete control with 32 knobs and 43 buttons that help you manipulate your sound. Quality: Built like a tank! Value: I sometimes think I paid to much but then I start cheating on my Virus with another synth and it just doesn't feel the same at all. The Virus just feels solid compared to synths in its price range. Buttons, knobs and just the frame alone feels better made. Manufacturer Support: Not only do I have the TI2 white Edition but I also have the Access Virus A and I haven't had any problems so I guess that's good for support. The Wow Factor: I have to admit that the pulsating Virus logo in the back of the keyboard is kind cool. Overall: If you are serious about your music and would like a synth I would recommend just saving you money and buying an Access Virus TI2 .
