Xenos Soundworks has introduced Selective Reality, a soundset for the Virus TI synthesizer from Access Music.
‘Selective Reality’ contains 128 patches by sound designer Allen Summerlot, covering a wide range of musical styles from house to industrial to progressive rock. The soundset ships to you in .mid format.
Selective Reality features
- 128 patches by Allen Sommerlot (aka blortblort & Madder Than You).
- Special care was taken in developing these patches so that you have as much modulation and expression as possible in each one.
- All three of the TI’s physical performance knobs, PB and Mod wheel have been routed for all patches. Most patches also have AT modulation components and velocity driven modulation. Some even have other unusual modulation (arp swing factor mapped to key tracking for instance).
- These sounds were designed to be played!
The soundset costs $19.95 USD.

Plughugger has announced the release of Red, a new soundset for the Access Virus TI and Snow synthesizers, aimed squarely for dance music productions.
There are 128 sounds in the collection divided into four major categories: bass, plucks, pads and sequences(!).
Although the Virus doesn’t have a built-in sequencer (at least not in the v5 of the operating system), we used some tricks with its very capable arpeggiator to simulate the functionality of a real step sequencer.
Virus TI Red features
- 128 presets for the Access Virus TI & Snow:
- Bass sounds: Dark, Big, Snappy, Interval, Acid-style, Distorted.
- Plucked sounds: Bright, Interval, Soft.
- Pads: Bright, Soft, Big.
- Sequences: Bass sequences, Interval sequences, Plucked/Lead synth sequences.
Virus TI Red is available to purchase for 9.90 EUR. A free demo bank with 10 presets is available to download.

Homegrown Sounds has announced the release of two soundsets for the Virus TI synthesizer from Access Music.
Astronomy for the Virus TI
This is a free collection of 64 Presets for the Virus TI (OS5). They are all ARP based patches covering a full range of styles from grinding Bass riffs to ethereal sequences using the full potential of the Virus TI. Each preset makes use of the 3 Assignable Knobs for transforming the patches in real-time as well as channel pressure(Aftertouch) and Mod Wheel. Knob 2 is always assigned to the Delay Amount.
Starburst for the Virus TI
Starbust TI is a new collection of hand crafted Pads/Textures for the Virus TI running OS5. If you think Eno, Budd, Japan, Sylvian, Boards of Canada that would plant you in the right musical hemisphere for where these sounds belong. They are full of motion and harmonic content. Whilst holding notes will deliver great pleasure from the landscape that unfolds, most are also designed to be used in a general musical context so that they are not limited to specialist genres.
Starburst costs $29.99 USD. It is currently available to purchase for $14.98 USD as part of the 50% off Holiday Sale. There is also a Lite Version available for free which includes 10 Presets from the collection.
