Why We Love This Product!

This Cool Synth Has It All!

While the original Virus TI was already breathtaking, the Virus TI2 Polar takes it several notches higher. You get a cooler effects section (complete with tape delay, frequency shifter, and distortion effects), 25% more calculating power, and even lighter weight. This cool little number even includes an awesome plug-in that puts this synth to work inside your DAW!

Want awesome? You get all kinds of awesome, with the Virus TI2 Polar. It's got three main oscillators and one sub-oscillator per voice. It gives you two independent filters plus a 2-dimensional modulation matrix (say it fast). Want more innard info? Each of the Virus TI2 Polar's patches contains its own arpeggiator pattern. What does all this mean for you? Crazy-cool sounds and the kind of depth that tweakers live for! Plus, the 37-key synth-action keyboard plays great!

You want effects, correct? Correct. Access built a whole bunch into the Virus TI2 Polar synth. You get phaser, ring mod/shifter, chorus/flanger, and global vocoder effects plus tape delay, frequency shifter, and distortions. Shape sounds further, via analog boost Vintage 1/2/3, pad opener, lead enhancer, bass enhancer, and stereo widener character effects. Phew!

This synth is lightweight enough to easily take to the stage, and it's also right at home in your studio setup. In fact, the "TI" in the "Virus TI2 Polar" name stands for "Total Integration." That extends to your DAW! The included Virus Control 3.0 plug-in puts this bad boy's performance right into your favorite recording application. Amazing!
