I'm a bit desapointed by my Virus TI I've got since 1.5 month. It's a fantastic synth, no problemo ! But I'm fed up with some cracking noise when using it with its vst control. I tried with the Virus HC editor but it doesn't recall presets correctly and I loose the 3 stereo USB outputs. But by using the Virus only via midi = no glitch crack sounds...
The other really annoying issue with the Virus controler is the huge difference of timing between a sound outputing thru USB and the other thru one of its anazlog output !! Up to 50 ms ! And the really bad thing is that this timing shift in sound is never the same ! It goes from 25ms, up to 50 ms with 512 buffer size ! So outputing percussive sound thru analog outputs is never in time !
If at least the timing shift would always be the same, I could handle with that.
In fact, I'm totally amazed that my virus TI desktop + its Virus control doesn't work as well as my powercore Virus !
Another workaround would be to still use the Virus control AND having the possibility to set particular part to the synth midi input. But apparently, when the virus control is launched in the daw, there is no way to control the synth in other mode than 'seq mode'.
Am I wrong ? I wish there is a workaround !! Thanks a lot for any info !
