Sound Quality
In a nutshell, superb. Real personality and presence from a VA. Yes the ION is more realistic (for analog emulation), but there is no denying the Virus has a very identifiable tone. Sure to become a classic - already amongst dance/electronic producers. Possibly the nicest VA synth ever made. The Virus KC is capable of sounds covering any genre. Totally synthetic - no real instrument emulations.
Never had any problems with mine. From what I hear and see, seems to be very reliable and robust. Id recommend this synth to anyone whos uneasy about investing similar money in old gear. The unit should age well and mechanically speaking...outperform most other synths.
General Comments
Definitely worth what I paid and more. Doubles as a great external sound mangler for other synths, drums and voices. Never get bored with this synth. The one and only VA I own and it'll probably stay that way. Just check out the other reviews and mp3 demo's on the net. Have you ever heard a synth sound like this? No, theres only one Virus.
