I have been looking already for a long time to add an Access Virus TI/TI2 to my music setup.
Love the trancy sounds it produces and my feeling is it just has to be part of my setup for EDM/Trance.
I use Ableton Live 11.3 suite, running on Macbook Pro M1 (Os Ventura), and a midi controller keyboard MIDI USB a Yamaha MX49 Mk2.
Also I have a Yamaha CS2X but that is more sentiments from my youth
Although I can still use the CS2X with my M-audio USB interface to my macbook pro and midi in/out cables.
Would you still recommend buying a Access Virus at the moment, with the ceased support/integration for Apple M1 computers?
Either the keyboard version, or desktop, and control the desktop with my midi keyboard.
I know that probably I shouldnt mention it here, but I would consider Novation Peak desktop as alternative, in combination with a nice ableton midi controller novation 61SL ML3.
Just because that unit has no integration issues, is still supported, and doesnt sound bad at all. Its not a virus though ......
Just a bit concerned about lack of support for Virus studio integration at the moment....
I know there are 3rd party solutions like Aura, but how does it actually work ?
Thanks for your experience,
