THE ACCESS VIRUS is a virtual analog synthesizer made by the German company Access Music GmbH. It was first produced in 1997 and has since been upgraded frequently, with the company releasing new models about every two years. The Access Virus employs various synthesis techniques, including subtractive synthesis, phase distortion (PD) synthesis, frequency modulation (FM) synthesis, and starting with the TI series, wavetable synthesis.
THE VIROLOGIC LIBRARY contains sampled patches from the Access Virus synthesizer. The samples are in 24bit 44.100 Khz ncw format. The library is divided into 12 sound categories containing 305 instruments and 43 Multis. The categories are: Arpeggios, Bass, Brass, Drums & Percussion, FX, Keys, Leads, Pads, Plucked, Strings, Synths and Winds. The patches that use the Modulation Wheel as modulator for the Filter are marked with MW.
THERE ARE three parameter pages, the 'Controls' page, to edit the main parameters like the Portamento, Unisono, Envelope and Filter settings, the 'Additional Effects' page to edit the effects parameters and the 'Arpeggiator' page to edit and add rhythmic elements to the sound.
Virologic only works in the full version of Kontakt 5.1 or higher.
When using the free Kontakt Player, this library will only work for 15 minutes in demo mode!

Fabrice: "A MUST HAVE... Virologic is clearly the best Kontakt synth i have ever owned. I play electro-lounge since more the 20 years now. I already work with the most famous plugins synths on the market (Omnisphere, Trillian, Zebra, Diva, ACE, AAS bundle and much more) and some good gears (Prophet 8, NordLead 4, DX7, Supernova, TR-Rack, Waldorf Q, OB12 …). Also love the Hollow sun Kontakt librairies but since i discover the CL-Projects patches, a dream (far better IMHO). Running Protools HD12 the combination of Virologic for Kontakt and my hardware synths is absolutely fabulous Many thanks for your job"
