Access Virus Indigo II


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 that’s built for comfort and speed. The original limited edition Indigo revamped an entire industry’s 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
