Killedaway: no, there are loads of avatars to choose from in the profile section. They just picked two that came from the same original picture.

In the US you would actually have more purchasing power from the money you earn. The reason is because even though you may earn less money in total (i.e. after exchange rates), the general price level of things is lower in the US. Plus, there are less taxes, less importing regulations, etc.

Is there any way to avoid sentences like:

"of course, you would have to unlodge your head from your sphincter to figure that out. "

"Again though, to understand that, you need to take your head out of your a*s."

These claims seems coming from "who really knows how the things goes" ... hmmm... please... fly down...

peace

So since a few people have asked, I've decided to make a virus TI synth demo.

Its just me fooling around with a few favorite patches of mine, all patches that I have made.

Maybe this will give you an idea of why I love this synth so much.

They make use of every oscillator type available, wavetables, grain tables, formants, hypersaw, etc.

The moog filter emulation is also displayed as well, though I don't recall doing a sweep with a patch that uses it...

No external processing on any of this, everything you hear is generated from the virus TI.

Its a bit long, clocking in at 10 minutes, but if you want to get an idea for what this synth can do I definitely recommend checking it out!

Everything is played live, so sorry in advance for the sloppy playing.

enjoy!

No one cares, no one sympathizes,
so you just stay home and play synthesizers.

Hehe yeah. Mine is from a different picture though. It is taken from a plane going through a near-total solar eclipse antumbra...perhaps one of the most beautiful pics ever...

Ok, so im to lazy to read the last 9 pages but I just came back from namm and I played it and asked questions. First off the person told me it would retail for 1300 or so. It is really small (i have pics but i cant find the cable for my camera. I'll look tomorrow). It sounds good. Kind of a weird interface, Also for the price I mean I would just get a rack. The interface was annoying and it cuts on polyphony and s**t. So really save ur money and get the rack.

But I do love the atomizer that virus is coming out with. A guy demoed it for me. Its pretty sweet.

The TI is an amazing piece of kit.

Folks frequently overlook the fact that the ti can acts as a nice 192khz audio interface, with pretty good ad/da conversion (to my untrained ears, anyway). Does the snow do that as well? An onboard audio interface is not something to be overlooked...

Even though the D/A converters are 192khz, the TI is not a 192khz interface. It only runs at 44.1 or 48, since USB bandwidth is not sufficient to carry 192khz audio. IF it were USB2 however, it could carry 192khz.

doh! I stand corrected, thanks for that! I had somewhat naively assumed thats what it could do, but reading through the menus, yup. :oops:
