I bought the Virus last year (december 2012) and have been getting lost through all the awesome patches and presets and downloading whatever I can find of the internet. (good job to everyone who releases their patches, trust me I have them all!)
However, I think its time to learn the Virus inside out as I love the machine and have run out of money to buy more vsts and such.
I know nothing about synthesis. I obviously know what filters are but struggle to know what exactly LFOs are ( i think of them as lines of automation, i don't how accurate that is)
I am looking for online resources about synthesis, if its all done on the virus even better! (I learn better with visuals like videos)
I know about the sound on sound synth secrets article, but it is WAY too technical and extremely long.
I bought Welsh's synth cookbook, however, I have trouble finding the exact parameters in the Virus Control Plugin to actually follow the patch instructions.
I need a resource that would explain synthesis like I am a 2 year old in very simple terms and examples!
Anything would help! Thanks guys!
