    Description
    The Access Virus TI2 Polar synthesizer takes the revered Virus TI to the next level, boasting 25% more calculating power, a more robust onboard effects section, a lighter weight, and a completely redesigned housing. At the heart of the Virus TI2 Polar is the new OS3 which comes with new effects - Frequency Shifter, Tape Delay, new Distortions, and Character. What's more, it now includes the enhanced Virus Control 3.0 plug-in, giving you even deeper control of the synthesizer and your many presets. Already a known Ferrari of a synth, expect even more from the Access Virus TI2 Polar.

    Access Virus TI2 Polar 37-key Synthesizer at a Glance:

    The "Ferrari" Just Got Better
    Robust effects section, with new TI2 effects
    Total Integration - enhanced Virus Control 3.0 plug-in
    3 main oscillators and one sub-oscillator per voice
    Two fully independent filters and 2-dimensional modulation matrix
    Robust effects section, with new TI2 effects
    Each patch contains its own arpeggiator pattern
    Premium redesigned enclosure, lighter in weight

    The "Ferrari" Just Got Better
    Access somehow managed to improve on the revered Virus TI system, taking the "Ferrari" to the next level of performance - and TI computer integration. With a lighter, redesigned enclosure, a bolstered effects section, and an enhanced Virus Control 3.0 plug-in - plus all the staples that made the Virus the famous powerhouse - the Virus TI2 Polar is truly the culmination of Access's 12-year triathlon of sound research, distillation of user input, and their simple desire to create an exceptional instrument.

    Robust effects section, with new TI2 effects
    The new Access Virus TI2 Polar features an even more powerful effects section, bringing studio-favorite effects to the live performance realm. In addition to phaser, chorus/flanger, ring modulator/shifter, EQ, and a global vocoder, onboard are a new Tape Delay effect, a Frequency Shifter, and new Distortions. There's also a new Character effect, which lets you shape the timbre of the Virus's sound and its fit in the mix, using Analog Boost, Vintage 1/2/3, Pad Opener, Lead Enhancer, Bass Enhancer, or Stereo Widener "Characters."

    Total Integration - enhanced Virus Control 3.0 plug-in
    The TI in the Virus TI2 Polar stands for Total Integration with your DAW - and Access has heightened that integration, with the Access Virus TI2 line. With the new Virus Control 3.0 plug-in, you have enhanced control over your Virus TI2, right inside your DAW. There's also an even more robust presets manager, so you can organize, sort, search, and tweak - as quickly as you want to work.

    3 main oscillators and one suboscillator per voice
    The Access Virus TI2 Polar features three main oscillators and one sub-oscillator per voice. Each main oscillator can be made up of various oscillator types, including Hyper Saw (a multi saw-tooth oscillator with up to 9 stacked oscillators, 9 sub oscillators, and a sync oscillator at the same time), Classic Virtual Analog oscillators (saw, variable pulse, sine, triangle, 62 spectral waves with several FM modes), Graintable, Wavetable (with 100 multi-index wavetables), and Format oscillators

    Two fully independent filters and 2-dimensional modulation matrix
    You can use two fully independent filters with the Access Virus TI2 Polar - lowpass, highpass, bandpass, and bandstop) while using an optional saturation module between both filter blocks. The saturation module can add one of several distortions and lo-fi effects, or an additional low/highpass filter. There's also optional self-resonating Moog cascade filter simulation, with circuit overload and 1-4 poles. What's more, the Access Virus TI2 Polar offers a 2-dimensional modulation matrix, with 6 slots (1 source and 3 modulation targets each), and you can modulate parameters in real-time.

    Each patch contains its own arpeggiator pattern
    Every patch onboard the Access Virus TI2 keyboard features its own arpeggiator pattern with 32 programmable steps (length and velocity can be adjusted per step) and a global control for swing/shuffle timing and for note lengths. You can control all of this using the modulation matrix.

    Premium redesigned enclosure, lighter in weight
    The new Access Virus TI2 Polar retains is classy look - all designed, engineered, and built in Germany. It also features a lighter weight, so the Virus TI2 Polar is even more prepared for the stage.
