Furthermore, while some command-line options are just flags, i.e. they can either be present or not (but that’s it!), there also are command-line options that take an argument. All files you have added, so far, will show up in the list. This is a standard Windows security feature, so don’t worry! The Virus family has become a classic in a relatively short time, and software implementations have been quite demanding, running on higher-end DSP-based audio systems. See the GNU General Public License for more details! Sometimes you may wish to store the converted files in a new (sub-)folder. In this case, simply click the «Make New Folder» button, enter the desired folder name and hit the «OK» button.
However, because the bitrate can not be adapted to the contents of the file at all, this generally is the least favorable mode! VBR (quality-base variable bitrate) mode adapts the bitrate to the contents of the file. What’s more, the Access Virus TI2 Keyboard offers a 2-dimensional modulation matrix, with 6 slots (1 source and 3 modulation targets each), and you can modulate parameters in real-time. However, I wasn’t being awkward: the Windows computer on which I was installing the Virus TI was in a machine room some 20-30 feet away from the main workstation where the monitors, keyboards and Virus TI were located. Called the Ferrari of synths for a reason, because it is sexy! That is because anti-virus programs generally are proprietary (ClosedSource) software – anti-virus companies don not publish their source codes or reveal their algorithms. You can create all the usual ripping sync effects by modulating the frequency of oscillator two with either an LFO or one of the envelopes.
Also, the software has been re-written from the scratch two times. There have also been some minor panel changes on the Virus C, with some new knobs and switches for LFO and oscillator control, but the outline remains familiar — anyone who has used one Virus should have no trouble adapting to a different one. This adds a kind of filtered noise effect around the pitch of oscillator two, and is good for grungy, dirty, quasi-distorted noises. The Snow is patch compatible with the rest of the TI line. It is much smaller, sporting a minimalist interface and utilizes a single DSP chip giving it about half the polyphony and only 4 parts of multitimbral capability.
