Acess Virus KC Keyboard

   0 reviews  -  2110 views

    Planet Ordinary is an unreachable destination on the Starship Access. That's why Access set all systems to Hyper-Deluxe while developing the Virus C Keyboard, or 'kc'.

    The kc combines all the new features and capabilities of the Virus C engine with a professional quality 5-octave semi-weighted, aftertouch capable keyboard. With its master-keyboard control functions, the Virus kc is the perfect centerpiece for stage or studio: a stellar giant to match your extraordinary performances.

    Dock with this synth station and it will be a long long time before you find yourself floating homeá
