  • Hi,

    I sent a few tickets on your site last week, and have posted comments in several parts of the Virus forum to the same effect. I would really appreciate your help, and upon successfully getting your app and my Virus TI2 to communicate, will pay for the VirusHE order I’ve already placed. Here’s the question I posted:

    I’m really interested in buying VirusHE for my brand new TI2 Desktop. I’ve actually placed the order, but not paid for it yet.

    I have submitted a ticket to this effect, but haven’t received a response thus far, so I’m posting here to see if someone has ideas.

    My Configuration

    • MacOS Sierra 10.12.6 on MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid 2010)
    • I’m not using a DAW on this machine. I want VirusHE standalone as a patch librarian.
    • Virus TI2 Desktop 5.1.7
    • USB (I have also tried iConnectivity Mio and iConnectivity MioXM via network MIDI. The rest of my gear is talking to the Virus just fine via the MioXM)
    • All of the hardware settings were meticulously matched to the specs at the Mystery Islands site.

    Testing Procedure

    Virus is on MIDI channel 5 and Device ID 1. I have tried other channels and Device ID’s to no avail. The synth is in multi mode when I try all of this. I also tried seq mode, just to be sure.

    To prove MIDI is flowing, I checked in MIDI Loupe (a Mac app which displays the incoming MIDI messages). When I switch multis or single patches, I get the expected MIDI messages, albeit from “VIRUS TI Synth” and not from “VIRUS TI MIDI” as I would have expected.

    I tested controlling the synth from Camelot Pro on the same Mac. Camelot Pro was able to download the patch library and switch presets on demand. Camelot Pro also worked perfectly over the network MIDI connection.

    In other words, MIDI is flowing and the Virus is communicating with this Mac. What am I doing wrong?

    Help and advice would be very much appreciated!
