Ive found a solution for those of you on Big Sur and Monterey.. I have purchases a $20 USB to Midi cable on amazon and also purchased Mystery Islands Libraian.. so far its been pretty flawless. I will continue to work with it and see if I run into any issues.
hey guys Ive posted this in a couple other threads here but Ive got the midi Driver working on Monterey.. I dont have any sort of librarian at this point and will sort that out but for now Im able to connect midi to the Virus from both Logic and Ableton and use my controller to control parameters like Cutoff , Res , ADSR. Heres the link . So far its working well. I'll report back if there are any issues I encounter. .Oh and BTW I have a Virus TI no the TI2 and it still seems to be working
hey guys.. I have found this to be able to at least be able to use the Virus TI with midi from a DAW
so far it seems to work well in Ableton for some reason when I switch the patch manually from the TI the sound will stop working until I push the audition buttons ( Shift & Audition) so Im trying to sort that out
In Logic the midi seems to work fine , you can load a External Midi channel strip and just connect to the virus that way pretty easily. I'll keep tinkering with it and see what else I can figure out but hopefully this helps anyone else that was having the same issues as me.
unfortunately this is due to lack of a new update midi driver.. someone has written an updated driver on Github.. Im just now trying it myself but seems to have an issue when I switch patches the audio stops working so I'll have to keep tinkering with it , hopefully this may help. if you follow the GUI instructions its pretty easy to install
I would. €100 max. I don't even care about audio via USB, just give us a plugin to manipulate & save our patches.
yes exactly something like my Moog sub37 1st plugin..I don't give a hoot about the USB audio either and im not feeling mystery island thing..
I have just come back to using my TI2 synths and realised that they are not supported on Big Sur.
Having said that I have a team of Mac software developers none of them who have access to these Synths.
I’m now considering getting a standalone TI2 to editor developed.
Apart from Xcode could we also use XOJO.
Would anyone like to be involved in developing or collaborating on such a project.
The collaborator from here could advise a progammer - unless someone from here would like to take on the whole project.
For a standalone application
A starting point would be to just connect to the TI2 via USB and display a list of patches which can be auditioned with sound from either the TI2 or the Mac.
Then a method to setup 16 parts/tracks.
Developing for the Mac M1 chip could potentially allow for an iOS version as well.
One thing I realised last year was that ANYTHING can be done on the Mac - just needs expertise and perseverance and someone good like a musician directing the development.
I can fund the project
would be great.. I just think that they dont care anymore however aside from funding solely Im curious if a crowd funded project would be the solution to get things moving
I'm a new poster in the threads, but an owner of a T1 Polar for years I'm still loving my T1.
I'm updating our studios computers to the new M1 chip and Big Sur. We all need a NEW update of VST and mac drivers. I'm not sure if this will ever happen of we just wait.
Can I ask this question?
I'm not sure what's happened at access, if they are still around. but personally we need to send the love back in the form of $$ to pay for an update.
I would pay prob at least $100 however also being a Kemper owner I know that the reason the Virus is no longer being looked at is that they are heavily focused on the Kemper which is constantly being updated with new features and such.. I to am highly disappointed with them as a company
would be amazing to see some Melodic Progressive House sounds and more sounds in general that are current with the trends of Music , house , EDM , etc. etc...
PS I just purchased one of these Sub 37's BTW... Nice addition to my Virus TI
Skip to 7:13 you'll have your answer but it looks like nothing in the " Near " future
Cmon Access you already have the platform on the Kemper. Can we get " Synth Manager " just like the Rig Manager for you Virus TI's ? I mean the Rig Exchange concept is great so many users have contributed profiles ( Presets )
Anyhow hope to see something like this soon.. with both the TI and option without the TI feature.
Their Busy developing the Kemper Which I own also BTW and if you play Guitar its an amazing piece of gear. But I would like to see a damn Patch Manager.. Just like the Rig Manager on the Kemper.. Now that would be amazing. And the most amazing part if the database for which a user simply adds a patch and you can load it directly into the Kemper. Could you imaging the vast possibility and sounds that could become available if the Virus had the same cloud/User exchange built into to what Access could call Synth Manager ? haha
Heres a kinda work around for loading for fav banks sound sets. Some of you may know this already but just in case.. you can load your fav soundest into the ROM using the virus control center since you can burn over the existing banks this is pretty handy in loading all your own sounds. still can't save your sound sets easily but at least you can access this without the VC plug..
@ 8:00 7skies.. talks about why he loves and hates the Virus.. Take a guess why he hates it haha..
Thank Warren.. your referring to this
Doesn't really say much in regards tot he design of the sound. Appears to be a NEXUS lead from a soundest.. He indicates that he uses a Virus " When he's in the studio "
Im just trying to find a soundest for my Virus that has similar percussivish big room leads.. Ive been using Waves Trans-X to get that initial hard attack on the lead but still doesn't sound right.. Ive yet to find a good one soundset.. I keep trying to make some from scratch but synth sound design from scratch is an area that needs improvement. If I can find a couple leads I can probably look at the settings and figure out how to achieve the sounds I'm after..
Thanks for the info bud!!!
Any of you know of any sound sets with some decent leads ? MAKJ has a nice lead on the song
Encore which he's using NEXUS however I know he claims to use the Virus in his Studio for some of his leads..
@ 1:16 sounds pretty
" DENIZ KOYU: Totally software, everything’s software. You don’t really need to spend money, it’s totally unnecessary. I use Cubase and I got one macbook that I use on the road but in my studio, my studio computer is a PC and I got all my software on it. All you need is some good speakers and a good room so the acoustics are good, it’s important. I got a Virus Ti too, but I never use it. "
Quote from and electronic producer who's doing well at the moment. haha I bet if you asked him why he never uses it he'd probably tell you because he doesn't have and midi editor to load up his patches and edit with and its such a pain in the ass because its unreliable using the TI software.
Heres a link to the article. although he has mentioned in a video on his recently producer track " Ruby " he got a sound from the TI
Access... Maybe its time to start listening.. On the Ti3 I would suggest USB3 - maybe you guys can market as the TI3 because it has USB3 and then maybe for us that still have a TI1 we can get a nifty Editor only version of the plugin for our DAWS.. seriously not mad at ya. I personally don't care if the TI over USB feature works or not.. I prefer the sound of the unit going through my RIG.. It sounds wayyyyy warmer than USB. So please please please develop an editor only version , very soon , please
Maybe They'll announce it at NAMM coming up
Lets go Guys!!!! I hope your on it.. Lets announce this at NAMM 2014 C'mon !!!!
+1 The integration as a plug is just to F'n Buggy and theres all kinds of crappy issues... really prevents the create workflow.. I say release a version that only allows editing of the patches. I really could care less if I have to track the audio through my other audio interface. Already have to do that anyway because Virus doesn't let you bounce in place.
The virus on the other hand is a great amazing sounding synth
I've seen other request for this around. It would be great if it were able to function as both, Click a button and VC simply becomes a Library , Editor / Patch loader
It seems no matter what I do , The TI just isn't reliable using the VC , I've used it on muletiple systems with the same performance. It eventually at some point does something wonky and falls outta sync or sounds " Drunk " at times. Also the latency compared to a direct midi connection is a bit laggy. Sure VC is great and all but I really don't mind tracking all my audio through my audio interface.
