VirusHC – Preparing Virus A to Virus TI2 for our Plug-in

Configure Access Virus A / Virus B / Virus C / Virus TI-family settings – Complete Tutorial.

Instructions

First we need to make sure the hardware is ready to communicate with the software. In order to do so, we need to make sure that some pre-required settings are set accordingly.

Plug your MIDI cables to the MIDI device and Audio Jacks to your mixer / soundcard.
MIDI out from synth to MIDI device in and vice versa. No MIDI thru or other ports.

Fire up your Virus. Our plug-in is designed to work “out of the box” and control all parameters from single plug-in instance.

After Virus is powered up, enter System settings and apply following settings.

Our plug-in is designed to work only in multi mode, single mode is not supported and will never be.
