Virus TI not compatible with MacOS Catalina / Big Sur

  • Thanks for the info. Oh right, that aggregate device thing. I remember trying it but the audio was glitching a lot. It was unusable and I gave up. I should probably try again...

  • That said, the Virus is truly incomparable. With Aura Plug-Ins’ product, it continues to do what it was designed to do.

    I read through the whole indfo and setup guide and to me the Aura Plugin had:

    - a very convoluted setup which will probably not work for a number of users for various reasons

    - a suboptimal user experience with a GUI which doesn’t even come close to the original VC plugin (this is my major concern)

    - a rather high price considering the above


    Therefore I still have a strong urge to keep using the Access VC plugin. And also think Access Music is obligated to do something about this situation.

    Exactly my opinion - it is not that the Virus is not being bought anymore - this seems NOT an issue. So why not give the whole community the benefit of a proper working and "state of Art" software as DAW Plugin and Standalone.


    A real shame is the difficulty to access the high potential of the User Arpeggiator Pattern.

    I am not a lazy guy when it comes to create sounds - but the almost closed shell of this feature is holding up a lot of creativity. If the hardware cannot do it (obviously) then an intuitive software can help.

  • leker it’s a fairly complex process, but one that is routine for any company with an active software development program on the Mac or Windows platforms.


    Lots of contributors on this forum have tried to influence Access to move this along, to no avail. It seems they are either unable or unwilling to do this.


    As I’ve suggested many times, you could look into the alternative TI plug-in from auraplugins.com. Many here report it works well and is similar functionally to Access’ own tool, though some don’t love the UI.

  • Dumb question and I apologize in advanced if this has been addressed but have any of the 3rd party editor companies have the ability to add the TI ability to their editors to emulate or bring back what the original access one could do? Or would that be a patent/copyright infringement on access’s technology? Anyone catch my drift?

    Yes, AURAPLUGINS (last Mystery Islands Music) is ok on M1 + BigSur. Every days i use it.

  • It's 2023 and I can't stay on 10.14 forever just because of Access/Kemper incompetence.


    Yesterday, I fixed the S/PDIF port on my audio interface so I now have enough audio inputs to connect my virus. Before I upgrade macOS, I have a question: will I still be able to use the Access Virus plugin for MIDI and to program the Virus? In other words, is it only the audio that is going to be broken or is if MIDI as well? If MIDI is also broken, I guess I'll need to buy a 3rd-party solution, but I'd prefer to use the Access plugin as I'm used to it.


    Thanks!

  • Have a good year
    Exactly, on Big: Audio comes out of the TI of all its outputs, and therefore into your sound card. Only control cannot be done. Like you, AURA's Controle virus, allows you to work on Big

  • I had mixed results running it on El Capitan and High Sierra even though Kemper Access Music states that these are supported versions of the macos. It works on Windows 10 but does hang in the DAW quite a bit. I bought the Mystery Islands software and will see if I have better results as I’d like to make use of the expensive new M1 MacBook Pro with more power and use the latest version of Logic Pro to take advantage of Atmos Dolby in my Virus recordings.
