The Virus B has three stereo outputs on jack sockets plus midi in, out & thru. It also has a stereo audio input

“Literally this synth sent me out of this world”

“If you only stick with the presets you won’t
get anywhere close to knobby heaven”

“It’s a beast of a synth. It won’t sound vintage, necessarily, but it does sound very good and very dark”

“Q how good is access Virus B?”
“A Like really really really good. Incredibly fat and springy, gritty and big. But NOT razor sharp”

“Generally, though, the Virus has a scope beyond that of any vintage polysynth, and is capable of warm strings, sweeping pads, dirty solos, squelchy basses, alien soundscapes, and that’s before we get to the realms of spiky digital tones and bright tinkles.” – Sound on Sound

“I think the Virus will be regarded as a classic in years to come. It has an uncanny knack of blending seamlessly into the mix, and yet it lends a certain presence to any track with its distinctive filter.” – Sound on Sound

“The Virus B is up there with the best of them and the truth is, you can’t really go wrong with it. You can be up and running in minutes, creating that classic Virus sound with hundreds of factory presets. However, the true power lies within and its full potential can be found by those who are willing to spend the time to dive deeper into the menu system”

In excellent used condition with just a few minor case marks. All original knobs & switches. Supplied with external UK power supply. Tested & working 100%. Photos show the synth for sale
