Best way to use the virus?

  • What's the best way to use the Virus? USB or Analogue outs? I'm using it as my soundcard too...Good Idea? Thing is when I play my Virus as stand alone it seems to sound different to when I'm using it in my DAW!

  • From your question, I understand that when you say "best way", you actually mean "best sound quality".
    I use the USB outs for two reasons: (a) It frees up inputs on my audio interface that I can connect to other things. (b) I don't hear a difference between the USB and analog output. I know that people say that digital sound is cold and harsh, but I use the Virus's filters when I want a warm sound. On the other hand, analog gear usually adds color to the sound, and human ears enjoy colored sound.
