Virus TI running at 96khz

Hello
I do not own Virus which belongs to me be i really like it and I think this feature will be very nice. :thumbup:
I cannot post anything in the Feature Request Forum category but forum moderators if u would be nice, can u move it there please!
As i know a current Virus can be runned natively at 44.1Khz and 48Khz, but it would be really nice if it would be possible to run it natively at 96Khz even though that poliphony might be reduced twise.
p.s.
I am not going to begin debate 48Khz vs 96Khz but thouse people who need it would really aprishiate this feature which alow to run it natively at 96Khz
and even though that polyphony might be reduced.
seens Virus is VA it only benefit from 96Khz sample rate
Maby it might not be even possible to implement this feature for a crurrent Virus because of just time because i am pretty shure u guys working
on a new Virus but please implement this feature at list in the next gen model.
Thank u and Have a nice Day! :)

I cant even get my Virus to work at 48KHZ never mine 96KHZ!

John Bowen Solaris is a great example.
He did an amazing job, thought the polyphony is limited, it sound if not 100% but at list 99% for shure like Analog.
The sound of Solaris is Amazing and it raning natively at 96 Khz. so i was thinking that if Access will
put this opition to runn their synth at 96Khz natively it would be very-very cool and even thought that polyphony
might be reduced twise. For thouse who need polyphony they can always switch back to 48 or 44.1 Khz thought....

there are parts in the virus sound engine which run on higher sampling rates internally. there are certain things which highly benefit from this extra precision but there are others which wouldn't. this way you get the best result.

Hello
My point is that don't be afraid to implement 96khz native resolution if not in the current but at list in a new gen Virus. :thumbup:
Plyphony? Well just provide 3 modes 44.1,48 and 96Khz and the problem is solved and all targed adience is happy.

No way! 88.2khz is more important than 96khz. Right now if you work at 96khz the virus will operate at 48khz internally which is a definite improvement over 44k. If you work at 88khz though the virus only operates at 44khz internally. This is disappointing and at times makes it just a little harder for the Virus to match up sonically to my work environment. Right now the best I can do is change my soundcard's sample rate to 48khz (which causes all my midi gear timing offsets to go out of time while doing this) when it's time to record something, then switch back to 88khz and do a quick SRC of the recorded audio from 48khz to 88.2khz. The sound is more clear & open working above 44k so it's really not ideal composing and tweaking at the lower rate and rendering at the higher. Filters certainly open up more at 48khz I've noticed.

I would kill for the option to run the virus at 88khz internally. I don't ever use my virus for more than a few sounds in a track and wouldn't ever have a problem with halving my polyphony to do it. Right now what I use my Ti2 for most is as a midi controller for my Voyager & Juno 60. Awesome controller and I love making custom templates.. but a little sonic upgrade would be welcome.

Audio resamples cleaner and with less processing working in even doubles between 44khz and 88khz which is why 96khz was intended for the video industry which uses a 48khz distribution standard.

Isn't that a hell of a thing? The video insustry employs a 48khz standard while the audio industry still relies on the same tired old sample rate that came with the dawn of CDs. :thumbdown:

What if I :
1/ divide the tempo by two
2/ play my sequence one octave lower
3/ record the output at 48kHz (so during twice the duration of the sequence at the original tempo)
4/ pretend it's actually 96kHz (so I get the correct duration, and the correct pitches).
5/ finally downsample the recording to 48kHz

Would I get something sounding near to what a Virus running internally at 96kHz would produce?

(for the sake of simplicity let's suppose that all LFO frequencies, delay times, phaser frequency, etc. get updated accordingly).

ok.we need 44.1, 48, 88.2,96Khz then :thumbsup:
Are u happy? 8o

when i am doing DVD Audio i need 96khz though.....
88.2 is good only if u will down sample it to Audio CD, so deithering is better then if u would go from 96Khz,
but if u doing DVD Audio or Bluray 96khz is standart over there..... :)
