Richard Devine Signature Set
Renowned Warp Records artist Richard Devine has provided an unreal signature set for Virus TI users which makes exclusive use of the new Grain Table and Formant Oscillators. Being the first 128 patches set entirely created using the new oscillators introduced with version 2.0, it takes the Virus TI into formally unknown sonic territory and is highly recommended for download, especially if you don't need another trance lead sound.
New user patch libraries
Andi Vax and Terran Westbook a.k.a. SurfaceX have released new Virus sound sets both targeting more dance-oriented artists. Andi Vax's Synsun patch collection is an excellent source for Progressive Trance, whereas SurfaceX's Full Force set caters rather more towards the Intelligent Dance Music and Industrial market.
