    This is very interesting. I am a very proud and happy owner of a Virus B. This synthesizer is one of these "simulated analog". Yesterday I talked to someone who knows a lot about the field and the equipment and he told me that MANY, but MANY people are buying the synthesizer, either new or second hand, and it is starting to become a legend, just like other synths did before: DX7, TB303, TR909, KORG MS10 - 20, Roland D50... you know.. the "usual" stuff

    I just wanted to post this as I think it is true.. more and more people are jumping on this synth. I personally love it. The sound is deep, strong, rich, the latest OS update gives you 24 voices of polyphony, and it's fully multitimbral (16 parts/channels/instruments).

    hehe

    I think the sound of the virus is a little better than the SuperNova II. But I think the Nova's interface is much better. I don't know why. everything just falls rigth into my hands.

    yeah.. and the access people are very good programmers, they know their machine really well, because the virus B is jumping from 12 to 24 voices of polyphony... just because they made a new version of the OS (operating system you can upgrade) its quite amazing.

    I love the sound of my virus.

    OSCILLATOR?

    It is a circuit that generates a vibration (called wave), so big that human can hear it. There are several "shapes", such as square, sine, sawtooth, etc.. sounding different.

    why not posting a new thread by the way? this is not really a virus-only question.

    this ain't a question, more a comment - we can't get 'em over in Australia, the supplier is wonky. But i bet there would be some choice second hand bargains around.
    Hmmm...
    Hm.
    I like the Access made sound on one of your dnbas music toys, it is a sound you named "oxygen" i think. Ultra far out tasty.
