It turns out that a lot of the glitches i've been having were due to my midi controller. This might work for others so its worth posting. I had to reprogram my midi keyboard, as some of the cc's were changing the virus settings, such as panning, noise osc, all sorts of stuff. This could also cause sync errors and the notes playing by themselves. Its working a lot better now.

RE: Please Give me some answers on this piece of junk.

What is going on, Why is something I've paid £1800 giving so many problems?

Firstly my Setup

Access Virus TI2 Polar
Imac Quad Core i5 Mid 2011 (Current Model)
Logic Pro 9.1.5 (Latest Version)
OSX Lion 10.7
NO ADDITIONAL USB DEVICES

I have DLINK USB 2.0 POWERED HUB - dedicated to the VIRUS TI2 POLAR

- I REPEAT NO OTHER USB DEVICES.

and i STILL get the following.

Sync issues, up to 5 times an hour.
Weird sounds all on their own when the virus and logic left idle at least once a session
Virus doesn't detect - at least once a day
virus not responding to preset changes. and weird artefact sounds. ..... at least once a house.

What is wrong here. please give me a straight anwser and fix. if there isn't one. WHY is this product sold promoting features that do not work properly. i seem to be waisting a lot of time and money trying to get this piece of junk to work correctly as it is advertised to do. than making music. please could someone advise exactly what i need to do to get this running 100% Perfect. - if that means downgrading to snow leopard i will do.

please advise. - thanks all.


What the F did they do with 4.5.3? I am getting the same issues. Didn't happen until I updated to the new OS. Pleas tell me that you guys at Access are going to patch this issue. Its a joke to not take this very seriously. Why should I have to hear other Access Virus T1 owners tell me " forget Virus Control, its a piece of sh*t"? Everybody bought the product with intentions to use all of its promised capabilities. I can tell you this. My production sessions are about 30% less productive because of the constant stopping to re-connect the synth's USB. Its a damn shame.

Angry,
Mike

Jesus what did I get myself into :( ???? So let me get this straight, some of you are going back to midi, even though you bought a "TI" Sad..... shoulda just bought something cheaper

So whats the consensus on the right OS to use?????

I bought my virus not intending to use USB except for VC control, which i dont use much either, except to load new patches.. and program arps if required... Midi is managed via standard ports on back from my Edirol UA-1000 sound rack midi ports. Works for me. As a plugin you need USB but i dont use that much either, i record seperate tracks out of virus analog outs to Reaper audio tracks, unless i need a midi track... which is rare.

The Virus has i distinct sound and is the best VA synth out there IMHO so anything else is a bonus for me. It works as a normal synth would for me, and USB is just another hurdle you have to get over to make it work how you want it to... if you require Audio, Midi, down 1 cable instead of 3 or 4 then its up to you, but your PC & DAW environment MUST be set up to handle it. Like i have said before on these forums, Access cant be responsible for peoples PC/Mac set ups can they??? every one has different setups. And they do try and help solve your problems, so if you think of the USB side of the Virus as a "unpredictable bonus" you wont be as disappointed... and most people dont have probs if set up as Access suggest, and use their recomended software/hardware combis.

SO dont beleive everything you read, after all if your Virus works fine no one will ever complain will they??

I use 4.5.3, and it's just fine for me. It throws up a buffer error message when I start Sonar, but it's not a "real" error message and works just fine (the buffers are already set below what it asks me to set it below). So I guess the consensus, as it were, is use the OS that works for you.

That said, if the software wasn't so useful, I'd be happy going back to MIDI (more than happy, because then I could downgrade Sonar back to 8.5...my hatred for X1 knows no bounds, but current budget means I'm "stuck" with it for a while longer). I personally bought it for a good hardware synth, and an upgrade from my Virus B, which is in need of repair. The software was just gravy (damn tasty gravy as it turns out). Hell, I don't even use a laptop/TI for live performance, so the TI wasn't even a consideration for me.

Babble aside, experiment, tweak, use the OS/setup that works for you. You got yourself into a great, flexible and expandable piece of hardware, so it's worth the effort!

This is so agravating when people attempt to give instructions off the top of their head and without tryin g to follow their own instructions to verifi their meaning.

#1: "Set Logic to use the iMac's own Core Audio driver in the Audio Preferences window"

Do you set the Core Audio Driver for both the Input & Output, or just the Input?

#2: "Create a new MIDI multi device in Logic's Environment"

There is nothing in Logic 9's Environment that states "MIDI multi device". Do you mean, "MIDI-Instrument"?

#3: "Set the Port of this MIDI Multi Device to Virus TI MIDI"

Do you mean, rout the Port of the MIDI… to the Channel Strip that is intended for Virus TI MIDI-Instrument? OR, how do you set the Port of this MIDI Multi Device to Virus MIDI? Because there's nothing in my version og Logic that states "Virus MIDI.

#4: "Assign the External Instrument "plug-in" type to the channel strip of one of the new tracks."

Do you mean, assign the "Virus TI 'plug-in' type"…?

#5. If Multi-timbral for a track is already pre-available, what is the point of your instruction 1 thru 3 above? Am I supose to have two MIDI instrument tracks for the Virus-TI? That's definitely not working for me.

#6: "Open the External Instrument settings for this channel strip (just like you would open any other plug-in window)"

I've never done that before. Where's that located? Would that be to the extream left of the Arrange window and clicking on the drop-down arrows?

#7: "Assign the Virus TI MIDI MIDI multi device to the MIDI input of this External Instrument (in its setting window)"

Do you mean go to the PATCH UTILITY or COMMON page on the Virus Ti plug-in?

You know, I think you just fed us a lot bull for fun to see how much of peoples time you could waist. So, ha ha ha, you won. But don't worry, the Access manual has got you beat by far in waisting my time. HaHa Ha!

@musaicsong: I think the Logic tutorial has such a setup built and routed, which you can use as a template. Or are you trying to use the Virus' analog outs instead of the return USB audio?
