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.
