Hi!
Has anyone ever A/B tested them? I would like to know what are the sonic differences between the two models.

Thanks, Giacomo. :)

Virus Ti: Hypersaws, grain shifting, analog filter emulation, more effects, lost more DSP/Polyphony, VST integration

Virus B: less polyphony, coarser sound, and in my experience more stable.

Aside from the features listed above, it seems the best reason to choose T1 over a B is the connectivity with computers. If, like me, you don't use computers in your set-up, a Virus B is a fine instrument.

i did say "VST integration" that pretty much covered the computer connectivity... which unfortunately you may or may not find stable.

There was a good thread on Gearslutz where a couple people chimed in to say something like "I've had both and think the B sounds better". I don't have direct experience, but seeing a handful comments like that there and elsewhere drove me towards a B, which I just bought! Arriving soon..tick tock..

I own a TI, and my friend owes a B....I bought the TI because I though the integration with the computer might be something cool......However, I never use it. It doesn't seem to stable as Ashe stated, and it also seems to slow down my work flow. I simply use it as a hardware synth, and I think the thing sounds great. If you don't the extra Polyhony than the B should be fine. Saying that something "sounds better" is totally subjective anyway. I would never sell my TI, as I love the sound. If you want to save money though the B is a fabulous VA.

I personally didn't find the integration very stable at all when I started demanding more than the basics from it. Which is a shame too, cause if it had worked, I'd still have it.

It really varies from person to person though. Some people have no problems.

I would actually go with a Virus C, personally.

Discovering TI to its full potential (fx, stomp pedal emulations etc.) would be a nice bonus, plus you won't get bored of it unless you don't like the core sound.
