VIROLOGY is a Kontakt sound library* based on
the sounds of the famous Access Indigo2/VirusC synthesizer,
and gives you a wide collection of vivid and powerful
354 Kontakt patches (in 7 categories)
3.36 GB of 44kHz/24 bit stereo samples
• 12 midi controllable knobs for realtime tweaking and for midi automation of the most important synth parameters
extensive editing techniques: multiple velocity layers
with xfades, round-robin triggering, alternate sample
starts to achieve fat, lively and vivid synth sounds
• exclusive IR sample
collection for the convolution reverb of Kontakt
please note: our Kontakt banks require the full retail
version of Kontakt 3.5 (or more recent
version), they are not compatible with the free Kontakt
Player. VIROLOGY is available in Reason
refill format as well.
The following simplified MIDI implementation
chart is designed as a quick reference guide that allows
you to identify at a glance which MIDI control change
(CC) messages are implemented by VIROLOGY in Kontakt.
attack time of the filter envelope
decay time of the filter envelope
release time of the filter envelope
filter envelope amount
resonance of the internal LP filter
release time of the amplitude envelope.
attack time of the amplitude envelope
cutoff frequency of the internal LP filter
decay time of the amplitude envelope
sustain level of the amplitude envelope
adjusts the amount of the insert FX (delay)
adjusts the send level of the send FX (reverb)
In addition, in most cases: modwheel
(CC 01) controls the filter modulations,
aftertouch adds vibrato effect.
The Virus synthesizers are legendary
in the world of electronic music. The first Access Virus
was released in 1997 and it quickly became a very popular
and favorite synth with its aggressive analog sounds.
The Virus uses physical-modeling to digitally
re-create analog sounds. It has an incredibly punchy and
clean analog sound that can give you anything from vivid
pads, textures to overdriven 303-style lead lines and
other great bass/lead sounds!
In 1999 Access released the Virus B, with many new features
and it was followed by Virus C in 2002.
The Virus C is a real beast! Three oscillators
(with basic analog waveform with PWM + 62 spectral waveforms),
one sub oscillator, two independent multi-mode filters
(including moog type!), two ADSTR envelopes, three LFOs,
16 arpeggiators, 32-band vocoder, five FM synthesis modes:
you'll find yourself in a vintage synth heaven.
Viruses have been used by (among others) Astral Projection,
BT, Überzone, the Crystal Method, Cosmosis, and Nine
