Set the phase-init parameter (oscillator section) to anything else than 0.
This phaser effect you're hearing is due to the two slightly detuned oscillators interfering with each other, creating a flanger effect. By setting the phase-init to some non-zero value, you reset the phase of both oscillators each time you press a key, forcing them to always interfere in the same way.
Hasn't the TI2 more horsepower than the TI1, i.e it can handle more complex patches/more voices?
Or use the VST plugin I wrote specially for that :
The plugin is called AceMidivirus-88.dll and is only a patch-holder that switches the synth in sequencer mode and load your patches when loading a project.
Here's a thread with a screenshot :
By plugging the USB cable into your Virus? Or maybe the input S/PDIF cable?
What's the "LED Mode" of your Virus set to ? (Config, System 3/5)
That's only true if you haven't got any other MIDI hardware in your set up, I've got MIDI cables going back & forth, balanced & un-balanced audio cables as well as power leads all vying for position in here.
Most of my gear can only be connected via good ol' MIDI & audio leads.
Of course. I was only talking about connecting your Virus. I also have a lot of cables (audio, power supply, MIDI, etc.), that's why I'm always enthousiastic when I find a way to get rid of some of them!
I would like to point out that using USB does not necessarily imply to use the Virus Control plugin!
If you connect your Virus through USB to your PC, and you *don't* load the Virus Control plugin, you can already benefit from all the advantages of USB to transmit MIDI (no need for MIDI cables nor a MIDI Interface). Audio is transmitted the good old way (S/PDIF or analog outputs).
In this mode, your computer sees two virtual MIDI interfaces :
- Virus TI Synth : where your sequencer should be outputing to. This frees up the output MIDI interface of your sequencer.
- Virus TI MIDI : access to the physical plug of the device. You get an extra MIDI interface for free!
I got the feeling all of this has been really well designed, allowing for a lot of flexibility.
Let's put it in a different way :
Whatever way you want to use your Virus with your computer, you should never need to deal with MIDI cables again!
By changing the rate of the device connected to the other end of the spdif cable ?
Huh? Are you saying if I want to thave the audio routed through the S/PDIF output I need to select the ANALOG output on the common tab? I really doubt that tbh, it makes no sense what so ever.
I've been using a S/PDIF only configuration until now, I can assure you AtonyB is right.
It might make a phaser/flanger/chorus effect's life easier by reducing the amount of interpolation it has to do, but since you are only doubling the sample rate you haven't helped by much
Agreed. x2 isn't a big oversampling factor.
If your plugin doesn't sound great at 44.1kHz then you are doing something wrong. The Virus is the best digital synthesizer i've ever heard whether at 44.1 or 48, so Access manage just fine with their internal upsampling and subsequent downsampling.
I've no doubt about that my Virus sounds great at both sampling rates.
If your project works at 88.2 then you will be better served (with your desire to pursue inperceptible differences) by upsampling 44.1 by a factor of 2 rather than 48 up by a factor of 1.8375 - clearly the integer scalar will give you better results.
Seems logical to me, but I wouldn't talk about imperceptible differences, though. They can clearly be heard in the file of this topic : http://www.virus.info/forum/in…page=Thread&threadID=3031
What remains to be tested is if this difference will still be audible after a SRC to 88.2k.
AtonyB, I have the feeling you may be missing nms' point.
A lot of VST plugins offer an oversampling option, because it's an easy way to reduce the imperfections of digital processing. It's only a mathematical issue, we're not even talking about ADC/DAC here.
Although I don't work at 96khz, I'm not suprised to hear that some plugins sound better at this rate. It's a way to force all the plugins to do oversampling, even the poorly designated ones.
And if you only work with greatly designated plugins who do oversampling, it's still a way to avoid having each of them downsampling its output when the next one in the chain is going to upsample it again...
The Multi patches are saved into the Multi Mode, the are now referenced by the original patch, which means that you can over write the original RAM or ROM patches without issues.
Please correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't this only apply to the first 16 multis?
In the "system" menu 1/5 and 2/5 you can disable delays, reverb, arpeggiators and equalizers. Is this what you're looking for?
THAT BUG IS FROM BETA AND NOW RELEASE VERSION MY SYSTEM WIN32 XP SLOWS DOWN SWITCHING LFO ,FILTER WHOLE PLUGIN AND PATCHES. OTHER RELEASE VERSION LIKE Virus TI Installer 4.0.5.01
IS STABLE 100% .
That's okay, dude, telegraphy's been deprecated now.
Split Keyboard... or is it already there??
In multi-mode, you can define overlapping keyboard zones/layers. IMHO it's WAY better than standard "split-keyboard" modes found on many other devices.
Does hiding the VirusControl plugin window makes a difference?
Upgrade done, no problems so far!
And the bug that caused a display glitch (when fast switching between patches) seems to have been fixed!
