    You will get some better latency by using the virus asio driver in your daw, but who wants to do that.


    Actually, you should make sure you are using ASIO at all on Windows systems and make sure your buffer is set to 128 to 512.


    If you would like to be able to use just the librarian part of the VC add your voice to this FR :
    http://www.virus.info/forum/in…?page=Thread&threadID=780
    Just give us a librarian and let us deal with midi sync, latency , audio compensation and for me all that usb crap could go right where it belongs, the trash bin.


    Nobody prevents you from using VC just as a librarian, use the analog outs and switch of sample accuracy with the Live Mode button.


    Now it^s great, if I need the VC to get some patch or do some advance editing, I need to launch a second vst host, copy the patch to the ram, close that app, and now I can use my TI again from my main audio app. It was more fun 20 years ago :rolleyes:


    What host are you using that can't use VST plugins? If it can, you can also load VC into your "main audio app".

    Hey guys,


    I don't know whether this has been already posted or not but...
    How many of you have experienced awful latency when using TI as VST instrument (via Virus Control) when playing on 3 and more midi channels? I'm able to put down 3 or 4 midi channels with pretty basic sounds (no effects, because I prefer to use VST effects) and not too dense arrangements, and when recording 4th channel, the latency is nearly 1 second. My sound interface is most of the time set to the latency of 128 samples (Echo Audiofire6), TI's output is set to basic L + R (no surround) - I've read on some forums this may help to get rid of the latency...


    This is strange, since all data and audio is transmitted in one block, there actually can't be latency on only one channel (except you turn up the Amp Envelope or other intended patch settings). Make sure you are using the USB outs to get the best timing.

    Don't make me sell my beautiful Polar and use VST synths instead... :-)


    Never do that :)

    Hi Matt,


    You have to copy the files to the install location of the factory presets. On a mac this is in /Library/Application Support/Access Music/Virus TI/Patches
    On windows I have no idea. Anyway, once you've copied them there they will show up in the VC browser. Or you can transfer them to the TI Flash ROM using the Virus Control Center program.


    Here you are.

    as you can read in the description and the two threads I posted: the 3.3.5.02 is exactly the same than the 3.3.4.00 apart from fixes in the installation routine to solve problems some people had (during installation).
    if 3.3.4.00 worked well for you, you don't need to install 3.3.5.02 at all.

    I have saved a sound I created into Public Libraries/My Patches.mid in Virus control. However, it has saved under the name -Init-. Does anyone know how to rename the patch/sound I saved? I have tried double clicking but no luck. Also, along the same lines, I am still unsure about storing and saving my sounds on the Ram Banks. If I save a sound I created will it always overwrite these presets. I do not see any available slots in the Ram banks for my sounds, I would prefer to keep all the presets that came with the TI2. Thank you!


    You can either double click the name in the Part panel on the left side before saving it or ALT-Click them in the browser to rename them (see the manual for this).


    Regarding the RAM Presets: They are copies of patches in the ROM, RAM A is a kind of best-of, RAM B to D are copies of ROM A to C. Also, these RAM banks are installed on your harddrive by the TI Software installer, so you can copy them back at all times.

    the reverb and delay is different in the TI than in the Virus C, to control "Reverb Send" you need to send the change as sysex:


    F0 00 20 31 01 10 6e 02 xx F7


    6E is the parameter Bank C, Controller 2 is Reverb send.

    For those who had problems installing the 3.3.4.00 release on Windows, please download and use the 3.3.5.02 release available in the download section now. It is the same version as the 3.3.4.00 but fixes some installer problems on Vista/Windows 7.

    I was wondering if when i'm not using the virus ti2, should I unplug it or could it be a bad idea for it to be in standby mode for long periods of time.
    Its suprising that it doesnt have a main on off switch like my blofeld, i'm just want to be sure power running through the machine constantly through the months wont cause any long term damage.


    Thanks for any opinions


    I have a polar and a desktop running since 5 years up to 12 hours everyday, either in standby or running. It is definitely not a problem.

    Have you followed all advises in the how to's? made sure you are using ASIO? set the buffersize between 128 and 512?
    Have you contacted support? Can you give a detailed way to reproduce your problem?


    Actually, Ableton Live and Virus TI are pretty much tight together.

    Please help me how to understand this better. When recording with ableton live, how do you have more than on track for the virus at a time. I want to use all 4 voices on my TI snow, but can only figure out how to get sound out of the first one. Is it even possible to be in multimode when using live, or is it automatically in sync mode. I can get the sound to come out of voices 2-4 if i hit the audition on the device itself, but cannot get a response from my midi keyboard. Only voice 1 is able to be controlled by my keyboard. At this point I am recording one track, then recording the audio, and saving the midi and the preset if i decide to change anything later. I want to have 4 tracks coming from the virus simultaneously, so that I program the midi as it plays. As it is now, I can only do this one at a time, limiting me in going back to tracks I have already done. I know that was redundant but does anyone know what I am saying?


    you need to send on MIDI channel 2 to 4 to address parts 2 to 4. check your keyboard settings.
