Virus Ti as FX module for another synth...is it possible?

hello, I have a Virus Ti and a Alesis Andromeda.
I dont like the built in FX the Andromeda has, so I was thinking if it would be possible to use the Virus Ti's inputs as external FX for the Andromeda.
My set up is a s followed.

The Virus Ti is connected and being used USB and VC with Logic pro, I have also connected the stereo main analog outputs to my audio interface.
The Andromeda is connected to my audio interface straight up.
so I use Logic pro 9, Virus ti with VC ....but if its is possible to do what I want to do I wouldnt mind changing the way I have things set up.
thank you guys :thumbup:

If you set the Input Selection mode to Static you can route external audio through the filters and effects without having to trigger any notes.

so can I do what you suggested in the VC plug in?
Can I still use the Virus as synth simultaneously ?

Depends on the routing options in Logic, which I don't use.

RTFM.

hey "zebastian21",
yes, it is all done within VC as "enossified" described and if i remember correctly, you can route audio into an instrument-channel; it's been years that i used logic, so i'm not sure;
now you just need to make sure your Virus is set to "3 Outs / 1 In" in the "USB Audio Mode" options;
if it doesn't work like this, you can still connect the audio-outs of your Andromeda to the Virus Inputs, but keep in mind you have to disable the usb input, otherwise the analog one isn't working;
however, you can use the Virus as Synth simultaneously in both ways, since you use just one part as fx-chain;
best regards, gravity

Call me crazy but the effects in Logic are better than the effects on the Virus, why not just use them?

...effects in Logic are better than...

better for what? and, how do they exceed? in parameters, sound quality, handling, or is it some ranking from an FX-chart list?
sorry for this provoking undertone, but do you stick only to tools considered to be the "better" ones?
following ideas is what it's about, and this can be using the worst possible device with almost no signs of conductivity, as long as the sound is right in the end in your opinion; :D

.It's up to everyone but I personally think it's a bit crazy to use a virus as an EXF processor only - simply for cost reasons, especially live.

But if you don't need your virus synth in every song or bounce down tracks to audio why not experimenting with it?

i agree, though i doupt anybody would... ^^

exactly what i pointed out for cprovenzo!
i often use the Ti as a guitar FX-chain, especially with the new stomp-distortion algorithms in OS4; also the tape delay is a really nice live tool; :thumbup:

It is possible. I use one part as an effects processor for my Mopho, and the other parts are fully functional.
