ACCESS VIRUS INDIGO 2
- The 'Silver Speedster'
The Access Virus Indigo 2 is a powerfull Virtual Analog synthesizer.
It decimates so far all other sampling based synthesizers when it comes
about analog sounds. And it doesn't envy anything from its true analog
predecessors. I owned polyphonic synths like the Korg Polysix few years
ago and I'm pleased today when playing the Indigo.I
found a lot of presence in this synth. My set of synthesizers would
be lacking something without the Indigo. The Virus Indigo 2 is a fomidable
opponent to play the best dance and techno basses, pads, leads, 'supersaws'
etc. If the original Indigo was a Virtual-Analog Roadster, this baby
is a stunning Silver Speedster. The new Virus indigo-2 offers everything
to produce high-octane sonic masterpieces in a compact package thats
built for comfort and speed. The original limited edition Indigo revamped
an entire industrys concept of supply and demand. Equipped
with a new front-panel, aluminum side panels and blue LEDs, the indigo-2
packs power, portability and the legendary virus sound into a stunning
presentation with the style and substance
