    Bastards... they're not joking when they say it's the 'hardest virtual analog synth'... Virus for native VST please! (I know, I know, not in a month of Sundays...)

    don't you have to own the dsp unit as well, which cost's well over a grand?

    tc electronics are great!! my fireworx is the shit !!!

    I've got a virus b and it's great for phat psy leadlines... well recommended too!! they must be cheaper 2nd hand now that the c is out, but it still rocks my world

    a virus dsp by tc would be cool, but I'm happy with my hardware

    I dunno - give 'em a year or two to get to grips with the new 64-bit architecture coming out, and it might be plausible...

    (I'm getting in one last 32-bit upgrade first though...)

    don't you have to buy the software as well which uses the dsp chips on the actual unit?

    With VSTi's in general, I don't think these VST versions of classic hardware are actually worth the hype. From what I've tried, it seems better to use something that never had a hardware version, like z3ta+, Pentagon, and Linplug's things.

    Moog Modular, V-Station, Pro-53, PPGWave and things like that just seem to be too awkward on the user interface, or they take up too much resources, or it's very difficult to shape the sound you want from them. They're just gimmicks to me.

    A synth which offers plenty of flexibility like a matrix to route various controllers to sound parameters seems to be used more on my computer these days. After trying out most VSTi on the market, I'm whittling the list down to the ones I'm using most and getting the best results from, and that mostly just z3ta+, Pentagon, and a sampler (Halion).

    I know the virus would be good as a VSTi - the original hardware was/is so popular because it was so versatile, and so the VSTi would be also. But, there's already VSTi's out there which rival the Virus, so it wouldn't be so viable. I certinaly kow there's one or two VSTi's which emulate the Virus. It's identicle in structure, it just has a different look.

    thing about viruses that make them more powerful than their software emulations is the motorola dsp cards that are in TDM, viruses and powercore

    so the vsti access virus will be an access virus without the hard bits, exactly the same sound, after all the virus is just a soft synth in a box

    ive used the TDM version and it was cool, so as i wanted a powercore anyway, this just excites me enough to buy one

    on the bad side of soft synths My PC struggles running more 8 instances of z3ta+ (I've got P4 2.4. 512MB RAM) so having a dedicated dsp unit, which would also run excellent compressers\gates and othe dynamics would take the load off? And according to 'KVR' it is supposed to be very similar to the virus, so for a similar price you could have a virus + numerous outboard effects\dynamics!
