ENVELOPE 2 EGS: with "Punch" option boost the attack on the EG1.
- EG1 AMP: 4 segments + 1 time
- EG2 filter: 4 segments + 1 time with EG polarity.
FILTER section features 2 filters (-12 dB each) can be combined in 2 serials (SER 4 / SER 6) , 1 parallel (PAR 4) or directly to independent mode (SPLIT) .
Both filters feature 4 different models: LPF, HPF, BPF and Bandstop
The saturation parameters emulates a tube distortion.
LFO up to 3 delayed modulators with same shapes (sin / tri /saw / sqr / S&H / sample & glide) but different destinations:
LFO1: pitch / width / resonance / filter gain
LFO2: osc shape/ Fm amount / cutoff / pan
LFO3: pitch /width / Sync OSC1 and 2
TIP: MATRIX like a modular, the Virus handles 3 internal routings or virtual patchcords that connect a modulation source to a destination.
ARPEGGIATOR each part features an arpeggiator with latch, gate, swing , octave range and 6 modes/directions: up, down, up/down, random, "as played" and "chords". SYNC arpeggiator, delay and LFO can be sync internally from 63 to 190 BPM (17 time dividers) or slaved to external Midi clock.
EFFECTS there are 34 effects split in 4 categories:
delay and reverb + chorus + analogue boost + 32 bands-vocoder.
External signals can be processed by the analog inputs.
MEMORY: 256 patch rom (first OS) + 256 patch ram (first OS) + 1024 in updated version (factory songs are deleted)
Battery replacement: Memory system works with a 3V CR-2032 on the board.
OS internal operating system can be updated by Midi with new memory system (1024 patches) still available from ACCESS website. Know that FACTORY demo will be cancelled for memory room.
