Synthesizer Keyboard (2009)
Access Virus TI2 Polar retains is classy look - all designed, engineered, and built in Germany. It also features a lighter weight, so the Virus TI2 Polar is focused for the stage. OSCILLATOR Main system is a 3 main oscillators and one sub-oscillator per voice. Each main oscillator can be made up of various oscillator types, including Hyper Saw (a multi saw-tooth oscillator with up to 9 stacked oscillators, 9 sub oscillators, and a sync oscillator at the same time), Classic Virtual Analog oscillators (saw, variable pulse, sine, triangle, 62 spectral waves with several FM modes), Graintable, Wavetable (with 100 multi-index wavetables), and Format oscillators.
ARPEGGIATOR Every patch onboard keyboard features its own arpeggiator pattern with 32 programmable steps (length and velocity can be adjusted per step) and a global control for swing/shuffle timing and for note lengths. You can control all of this using the modulation matrix.
2 fully independent filters with the Access Virus TI2 Polar : lowpass, highpass, bandpass, and bandstop. While using an optional saturation module between both filter blocks. The saturation module can add one of several distortions and lo-fi effects, or an additional low/highpass filter. There's also optional self-resonating Moog cascade filter simulation, with circuit overload and 1-4 poles. What's more, the Access Virus TI2 Polar offers a 2-dimensional modulation matrix, with 6 slots (1 source and 3 modulation targets each), and you can modulate parameters in real-time.
In addition to phaser, chorus/flanger, ring modulator/shifter, EQ, and a global vocoder, onboard are a new Tape Delay effect, a Frequency Shifter, and new Distortions. There's also a new Character effect, which lets you shape the timbre of the Virus's sound and its fit in the mix, using Analog Boost, Vintage 1/2/3, Pad Opener, Lead Enhancer, Bass Enhancer, or Stereo Widener "Characters."
PLUGIN The TI in the Virus TI2 Polar stands for Total Integration with your DAW. Virus Control 3.0 plug-in is included if want deep control over your Virus TI2, right inside your DAW. There's also a presets manager, so you can organize, sort, search, and tweak - as quickly as you want to work.
