Virus Control and Hardware Sequencer

  • Hello everyone,


    I just bought a second hand TI2 desktop and I'm still exploring the unit.


    My goal is to sequence the Virus with a hardware MIDI sequencer but use the plugin for patch editing and library management.

    I use MIDI Patchbay to route Virus TI MIDI into Virus TI Synth.

    I had to dig up my old MBP because of incompatibly with the latests versions of MacOS, but the plugin works fine.


    The problem is : only the midi channel 1 works. All the other channels are unresponsive.

    I first thought of a wrong midi channel routing but as the manual says "It couldn’t be simpler: the MIDI channel is always the same as the PART number (1 to 16)" in Sequencer Mode. So it should be straightforward.

    With the USB disconnected, I am able to access all the MIDI channels in Sequencer Mode, as expected.


    So what am I missing ? :/


    Thanks !

  • What DAW are you using to host the VC plugin?


    The VC plugin puts the Virus in a special TI mode which is different from Sequencer mode.

  • AFAIK you have to route MIDI through the DAW / Plugin Host / VC plugin.
