Pianobook Virus

A pad created from my Access Virus b synth

The story

Pianobook Virus Pad

I have been wanting to sample this pad for a long time.
Although the Access Virus b is not a true analog synth
it is a simulated analog synth that does not contain any
sample so therefore I was able to sample it finally.
I basically sampled all the ‘C’ notes and spread them all
to fit the keyboard. Then added a 3 band EQ.

  • Simply Awesome

    This instrument gets straight to the point. It easily creates atmospheric undertones. It only provides controls of the low, mid, and high frequency levels, but that's all you need. Great job Keith!

  • Infectious Sounds!

    If you're looking for the lushest, most playable analog pad, you've come to the right place. This sound is amazing! It's super thick and rich, and super inspiring. As someone who owns a Virus, I can say that Keith has really done a fantastic job capturing its richness. The samples are well recorded and edited. There are loop points, but you're going to be hard pressed to hear them because the instrument is so well edited.

    My only wish is that there were some VCA and/or filter envelope controls in the GUI. You can access all of that by digging into Kontakt, of course, but a couple more knobs would be a welcome addition to the GUI.

    These minor critiques aside, this is an awesome sample library, and a must-download if you are a synth lover like me!

  • Very simple, but very effective!

    If you are into retro synthesized sounds, you definitely need to check this one out. It's a very simple but very good sounding patch, with this warm, nostalgic retro feel to it. The sampling is crystal clear and it plays very well by default, with the playable range stretched across the entire keybed. One of Keith's best I'd say!

    While there are no additional GUI settings to be found, it has been programmed in a way that you can adjust everything by yourself through the Kontakt instrument settings. You can find those in the top left corner (wrench icon)!
