Access Virus Editor Intro

Access Virus Editor & Librarian is designed to control your Access Virus right from your DAW. With our Editor, you can work with your Access Virus by the same way you use your virtual instrument plug-ins. Our Editor will recall your patch settings when you open your project and the data will be sent to your Virus automatically once you open your project. Your synthesizer is always synchronized with your session! The only thing you need to worry, is that you power-up your synthesizer.

Faster workflow

Access Virus Editor brings hardware integration to modern Digital Audio Workstation environments. Access Virus Editor & Librarian plug-in works seamlessly with all Access Virus synthesizers.

It is now much faster to scroll thru sounds and make tweaks within your DAW. Automate parameters with real hardware control names. The best part is, our Editor saves all the data within the project and when you reopen the project, all of the used data gets sent to your hardware, automatically! No more waiting with loading or transferring hardware data. Save time – welcome Total Recall.

  • Control your Access Virus directly from your DAW.
  • Automate almost every parameter directly from your DAW.
  • No need to remember CC’s for each knobs / per synthesizer. Goodbye sticky notes!
  • Load, Edit and Store patches into hardware memory or in your HDD personal library.
  • Randomize part data!
  • Store any Access Virus compatible soundset in your HDD library folder and browse it from our editor.
  • Send banks or individual patches from librarian to hardware.
  • Request banks or individual patches from hardware to librarian.
  • Total Recall: When you reopen your project, all of the data used in it, will be sent to the hardware, automatically!

Check Specifications tab for more info about the Editor capabilities.

Realistic Bi-directional Graphical User Interface

Our graphical user interface design has been made to make everything from sound design to patch editing as smooth as possible. When you move a slider, push a button or twist a knob in your hardware, software will respond at appropriate layer/part.

Use sections locks with Randomizer function to create complex sounds while keeping the best settings untouched.

Save time, as all the edits are stored within the project, so once the project is opened up again, Total Recall will send the data to hardware automatically.

Some of the SysEx parameters are not available due to a lot bandwidth taken from the MIDI cable.

Operating system specified settings / limits:

Windows limitations

Since Windows platform CAN NOT share resources between applications, it is important that you disable the MIDI input and output from your DAWs settings which you are intending to use with our Editor. If you leave the port open, our Editor will see it and once you click to use it, it might crash your DAW and you will lose your data. Link down below!

macOS limitations

macOS works “out from the box” with resource sharing, you are good to go once you insert the plugin into your DAW. However, our plugin can cause you a MIDI loop if you leave the port open / unfiltered from your hardware to your DAW. You can set various filters in your DAW.

    works fine with my Ti2 !

    Using it with my Ti2 through studio one 5, works nicely. i didn’t even need to create a specific instrument, the soft is seen by Studio One as a standard vst (vst 3 in my case). just need to select proper midi in and out directly into the soft, Great !

    Amazing piece of software IF IT WORKS (which doesnt anymore since VERSION 3!)

    Don’t buy. There is NO CUSTOMER SUPPORT. Since the update on version 3 this plugin does not work anymore. It’s trash.
    If I change this review. You can buy it again. Till then, AVOID buying this software. I crashes your projects.

    The Virus Editor is fantastic! I can finally use my TI Snow in Logic Pro X again thanks to this. Audio over USB works much like it did on Logic 9, which for me is perfect.

    How has it taken a third-party company to do what Virus themselves couldn’t or wouldn’t do? Thankful for Mystery Islands! <3

    Most excellent! I’ve welcomed the Access Virus back to my synth arsenal thanks to Mystery Island Music’s editor. After switching from PC to MAC, this was the only thing I couldn’t get up and running. It took some fiddling, as I’m new to MACland, but bottom line: works as promised. YAY!!!!

    Everything is great, but unfortunately there is a serious delay on M1PRO. Because of this, you have to save sounds in WAV on separate notes and then arrange them manually, which is not very convenient. But thank you for having at least some opportunity at all.

    I was not able to access all of my ROM sounds in multimode. ROM P in this case. I was also afraid this app might delete my sounds. Also, I want to direct different parts of the sound to different outputs. There are six output on my Virus TI polar. I ended up wasting half a day screwing with the beast, and ended up going back to single mode and not using the app. I had high hopes for this program but was disappointed. I felt the original Access 32 bit app was much more user friendly. Unfortunately new macs are not compatible. Time is super important, and this is a pain to use. I will go back to using software synths and samplers and probably sell my virus TI because it usually just sits there.

    The best software you’ve ever bought. very useful and very comfortable. It is a great opportunity for the mac m1, especially that it comes with the driver. my device started working with usb again. There are a few areas that need improvement, but they’ll fix it over time. I use it with virus ti snow and ti2 desktop without any problems. I expect you to support more devices, especially for rolan jv-1080 and 2080…

    I actually have been wanting to ask for support because I have some issues with the software that don’t seem normal. For one, the plugin doesn’t seem to remember its settings. Whenever I drop the plugin into a project, I have to re-route the midi out / in section and select from the drop down that I have a TI device. Pretty annoying having to setup the plugin every startup, is this normal? Also, sometimes all I get is audio in the right or left channel. Not sure what’s up with that. If I load a project that has the plugin in it, the audio channel balance issue is fixed. So it seems like the problem is within the plugin. Who knows.

    I’m having a lot of fun with this extension. I have one small problem – occasionally my project seems to forget which patch is signed to one of the channels and it reverts to an init patch, even though it’s still labelled correctly in the AVE plugin. I then have to double click to reload the right patch. Not a big deal, but happens very regularly and can be frustrating. I am also not able to automate the main channel output level slider.. tried everything, but ended up having to automate the oscillator level knobs instead, which is a bit fiddly when more than one oscillator is in use. Overall super happy with this product though. I’m doing everything over standard midi (not USB) with a single audio channel into my audio interface, so curious to see what the upcoming usb options will allow. Does this mean I can switch entirely over to USB for both MIDI and multi-channel audio? I am always not confident of using USB for audio because my MacBook Pro requires various dongles/adaptors to convert to typeC interface and adaptor chains often cause things to become unreliable over USB. Have a great week! Christo

    The program is very exiting, but I would like to make a few comments.
    – not correctly working in Reason.
    – the bank editing could be better (as the Midi Quest).
    – rarely freezing (in Windows).
    – why isn’t (User) ARP editing on Virus C only on Virus Ti?
    – the program is not remembering my last settings. (I always have to load / save actual setting).
    – whatever I set the device ID to 16, it only communicates at 0? (1-16).

    Best Regards
    Robert

    Somewhat straight forward to set up, my main issue is that total recall doesn’t work on my set up for whatever reason. I’ve been using lasermammoth in place of any virus softwares 1st or 3rd party. Doesn’t offer recall but with naming tracks and saving patches to my user banks in lasermammoth, it’s the best work around I can find at the moment if I want to be able to upgrade my macOS and have a reliable workflow with my virus.

    Hi as a disappointed Virus TI user, after discovering that there s no updated plug-in for newer Mac OS versions I now use the Virus Librarian editor of Mystery Islands. I would recommend to read the manual carefully. At the end of the day it does the job if you carefully configure.

    But unfortunately quite a bit of crashing when moving knobs on my hardware synth. Hopefully future version will address that problem. otherwise still happy with the software so far.

    I’m extremely happy right now. Once again I have access to all my Virus parameters via my DAW. I’m like a kid at a candy store right now. Access is by far the greatest disappointment of all time by cancelling support for the Virus software. That was the whole damn selling point. I would really like to know what the heck Access is doing? On the contrary, Mystery Islands Music may have been the greatest discovery of all time. lol. Jani in particular was pleasant 100% of the time. He helped me to solve a couple of issues, one of which was user error. üòñ Like Jani mentions, triple check that your ins and outs. Yeah, we all know how they go, but it can still be overlooked. Especially when you’re over confident. üò¨ He was quick to respond and showed a lot of patience. I ended up getting a ESI MIDIMATE eX to make this work. I’ve just started using it today 2-20-22 and so far everything is working. I will probably be going to bed really late tonight. üò≥ I will try and update after I use it awhile. Danny Figueroa

    This editor is fantastic overall, very easy on the eyes and is very well laid out. Total recall is great too. However, I am giving it 4 stars based on the experience I had trying to figuring out how to save presets. I spent a great deal of time in the plugin and the manual trying to wrap my head around saving a preset that I had created, only to try to save them in several ways that I thought would work…then find out that I actually didn’t save them and the patch reverted to INIT. It actually motivated me to get the TI function of my virus working properly and I just use that now. Its unfortunate because I really like the UI for this plugin and the fact that is is scalable. (The Virus TI plugin is not…very small on a 4k TV monitor) It may be that I did not spend enough time in the manual really trying to understand the preset librarian, but ultimately the other factor for me was unstable midi timing via DIN MIDI. As far as I know, that is a problem with the Virus OS and NOT the Virus HE plugin to be clear. Rolling back your Virus TI2 to OS version 3.4.4 apparently fixes the MIDI timing (jitter) issues.(or using a RME pcie card) Ultimately I decided against rolling back my Virus OS and decided to use the Virus Control plugin on a separate lower res dedicated monitor. I think its important to recognize that this plugin is a great piece of work and I will try again to figure it out in the future, but the Librarian and its functions could be simpler in my opinion.

    Great editor, which works as expected. Controlling the Virus with this editor feels like controlling a new synth. The library works like SoundDiver in the good old days. Finally I can load all my old presets again. A very small bug: in macOS renamed (‘access VIRUS Indigo’) MIDI interfaces won’t be reloaded in AU plugin when opening a LogicX project, while with standard interface name (‘USB Midi Cable’) it works fine. Probably fixed with one of the next updates…

    I am very happy with this plugin! The original Virus plugin is not very stable on my Mac anymore, but your plugin is perfectly stable with total recall and automation in Ableton. It took a little time to adjust to the new interface, but the interface is perfectly great. I do appreciate the familiar browser with 2 windows.
    I should note that audio is now coming through the line outputs, no longer USB, which is no problem for me but still worth mentioning.
    Overall I would recommend this to anyone with a Virus who is having trouble with the standard TI plugin. A++++

    All is working properly, when the Midi connection is established correctly. The names in automation parameter menu should be filled with more specific parameter names.

    The only negative aspect was having to search the website to find out where to apply my license file. Everything else is great! Looking forward to a Nord Lead 3, Novation Ultranova, and Roland System 8 plugin!

    This plugin has revitalised my love of the Virus TI.I always had trouble syncing the virus to Logic pro but haven’t had any such issues with the mystery island plugin.I did have an issue with the last update but Jani (Dev) saw to it that a newer update was done immediately to rectify those problems.I can say I’ve never dealt with a more professional software dev.If you own a Virus you need this.

    I’m incredibly impressed with both the Virus HC plugin, and the support and passion of the developer.

    The plugin is fast to load, easy to use, and allows me to really unlock the full potential of my Virus TI Snow.
    It’s incredibly transparent – it just works.

    Additionally, I was an early adopter of the M1 builds, and when I had a connectivity issue in initial setup with my hardware, Jani connected with me directly and took the time to troubleshoot and find the root cause. Jani was kind, professional, fun to talk to, and extremely helpful in getting me online and working and fixing an issue that will help even more users

    As one of the many left in the dust by Access’ lack of updates to the TI software for Mac, this has been an absolute godsend, and to be honest, I think it’s even better anyways. Bravo to Jani and the team for an excellent product and an excellent business.

    OMG, I’m so glad I found this! Thank you Mystery Island for picking up the ball dropped by Access! I’ve only been fiddling with the Virus TI editor for about an hour, and already it’s better than the official software because I’m using it in Live 11 with (wait for it . . . ) NO TIMING PROBLEMS! GAHHH! Hooray!

    Más que excelente el editor VirusHC. Antes de comprarlo, analicé otras opciones; este es el que más me gustó. Además de hacer lo que se espera que haga, tiene una GUI muy pulida. Muy buen trabajo!!!

    I’ve owned my Virus since it was brand new in 2002, but I’ve never been able to access (bad pun) the full potential of this amazing synth because the hardware screen is so limited in it’s display & functionality. Searching through the endless menus that utilized abbreviations that I barely understood was frustrating to say the least.

    While searching YouTube, I came across Mystery Islands and was INSTANTLY blown away when I downloaded the demo! It was like a clouded window had been cleansed and I could now have control of ALL the parameters right at my fingertips. The librarian is also super user friendly and I am now up and running with thousands of presets. I can not recommend this plugin enough! It’s ROCK SOLID & put new life in a remarkable synth I had sitting in a case for 10 years – and it’s now my go to synth! Thank you Jani!!! 💪😎

    Great software and amazing features. Specially since Virus has basically stopped updating their software and the only complaint i have is that not all the parameters are automation writtable. Most are but not all i.e reverb but im sure the team will fix this wit
