Access Virus B desktop model


Price: $795 USD


Access Virus B tabletop synthesizer in outstanding as-new condition. There is not a mark or scratch on the unit or the wood side panels. This unit has never been used on stage or on the road, has only had very gentle use in private, non-smoking studio. It has the latest OS installed and every function works perfectly. It includes the Virus, the original OS 4 manual, power supply, original box, and the copy of the SoundDiver sound librarian software that was supplied by Access. All updates and sound libraries are available on the www.access-music.de web site.


The Virus was initially a huge success because of its reputation for making great techno/trance/electronica sounds. It is great at this, but also does so much more. I've used it on a number of projects for really fat MiniMoog-like basses, lush/ambient pads, wavetable/fm emulations, and more. It has excellent reverb, delay, and modulation effects, a 32-band vocoder, and a great externally synchable arpeggiator. And, the six audio outputs make it great in the studio for sending separate sounds through a mixer/interface, or surround.
