Virology 2


Virology is a Kontakt sound library* based on the sounds of the famous Access Indigo2 / Virus C synthesizer, and gives you a wide collection of vivid and powerful sounds of the original VIRUS synthesizer.


Most of the patches are velocity sensitive and they have been designed for live performers, so a good midi keyboard which supports velocity and aftertouch is highly recommended.

* Important: The nki patches of VIROLOGY require the full retail version of Kontakt (v5.5 or more recent version), as our products are not compatible with the free Kontakt Player - it will stop working after 15 minutes!



ergonomic user interface

re-scaled faders (see pdf below for the details) for a natural feeling

more than 100 custom made knobs, faders and switches to control the most important parameters of the synth

customizable global MIDI implementation for 24 controllers

host automation for 24 controllers

30 different types of filters in 3 real-time switchable filter slots

fully editable effects: equalizer, 2 types of distortion, delay, 2 types of reverb, comp

2 independent LFOs (waveforms: sine, triangle, square, saw, random) with tempo sync option, allowing modulation for 4 destinations: pitch, filter, volume and pan

extensive modulation options for external sources: velocity, mod-wheel, channel aftertouch, random.

template load/save option for sound design



The Kontakt instruments of Virology 2 (.nki files) are distributed in 8 categories:

V2 [All layers]
V2 Arp & Sequence
V2 Bass
V2 FX & Percussion
V2 Key & Polysynth
V2 Lead   (32
V2 Monosynth
V2 Pad& Atmosphere

Over 400 patches in total, based on 3.4 GB 24 bit multisamples

The [All Layers] is a special folder for sound designers. It contains all of the instrument layers separately. The patches are “clean”, without any filter effect and with default envelope settings. They can be useful if you want to create new sounds from scratch.

Please note that these categories are not carved in stone, they're just our approach. For example you can use a bass sound as lead, or a polysynth key as monosynth lead or even a pad when you tweak it a bit... it's really up to you!

About the VIRUS

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 type 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.
