the virus synth is a fairly sophisticated virtual instrument, with a graphical user interface, as well as standard midi controls. you can chain the various modules to create patterns and the wavetable can be loaded with vst instruments.
it’s a virtual synthesizer based on the motorola 56k chip used in instruments like the access virus and mellotron. it emulates all the parameters of these classic synths and in addition offers a flexible gui and a wide range of effects.
the original virus synth has a basic oscillator, a filter and a noise generator. it has 8 single-stage filters, and one or two multi-stage filters. it has a lfo with controls for frequency, amplitude and attack and release. it has an envelope for the oscillator with attack and release. and it has an echo control, which delays the output so you can hear the oscillator after the envelope.
the vst vst2 plugin, access virus is the perfect marriage of retro analog sound and traditional digital engineering. the virus is a 64-voice 16-operator hybrid analog/digital polyphonic synthesizer with a ton of filters, effects and modulation.
this dsp is a retro classic that had a massive following back in the 1990s. theyve taken a step back from recreating specific synths and are emulating the motorola dsp56300 chip, used in classic mid-90s and early noughties instruments such as the access virus, clavia nord lead 3, waldorf q, microwave ii, novation supernova and many more.
the next step is to start to work on the audio engine and the general framework of the plugins. this will lead to the next stage of development, which will be to create effects that will be available for both digital audio workstation (daw) and daw players. after that, i am planning to make some effects for multi-track pro tools as well. 3d9ccd7d82
