PREPARE YOUR SYNTHESIZER FOR THE EDITOR

First, we need to Configure Access Virus A / B / C / TI / TI2 so that it is ready to communicate with the software.

Connect the MIDI cables to the MIDI interface and Audio Jacks to your console / sound card. MIDI out from synth to MIDI interface IN and vice versa. No MIDI thru or other ports.

  • MIDI Out from MIDI interface to Virus MIDI In port.
  • MIDI Out from Virus to MIDI interface MIDI In port.
    • double check your cables!
  • Audio from Virus Out 1-2 to console or sound card inputs.
    • Add more audio cables from Virus output ports as needed.

 

Note for Virus TI Users: If you plan to use MIDI cables instead of USB connection, UNPLUG the USB cable from your Virus or the editor won’t be able to establish the connection.

When USB is plugged in, Virus MIDI ports act as a MIDI interface for external equipment.

Wiring diagram example

Note that USB connection between Virus TI and computer is not needed if you have good enough MIDI interface in your setup.

Virus Editor User Manual – If MIDI is used, unplug the USB cable

Power up your Virus. Our editor is designed to work “out of the box” and control all parameters from single application instance.

Note: Our editor is designed to work only in multi-mode. Single mode is not supported and will never be. There is zero benefit of using the Virus in single mode.

In fact, when Virus is in multimode, you have 16 single mode instances of Virus available!
