Access VirusHC AudioUnit & VSTi Librarian Editor Plug-in

Access VirusHC AudioUnit & VSTi Librarian Editor Plug-in is the perfect editor for everyone who has been requesting a stable and solid Virus Editor for a long time now. After several years ago, Access Music introduced their Virus TI synth range, which was boosted up with massive features such as audio stream directly into your DAW via USB and also the Virus plugin. Due to these great features, the most loved editor & librarian program “SoundDiver” was forgotten and many Virus users instantly upgraded to Virus TI and perhaps forgot their Virus A, Virus B or Virus C synth. Well, it is time to pick those synths up, connect the PSU, audio and MIDI cables! We created the VirusHC plugin to meet the standards required for DAW-working environments: Edit your Access Virus hardware synth directly from your DAW without flipping thru different applications, organize patches within your plugin window to load, edit and save them directly to your HDD. You can run our plugin in Mac AudioUnit & VSTi format and PC VSTi format (both 32 & 64bit).

Faster Workflow

Since there are a lot of great software synthesizers in the markets today and because they are so fast to use, we wanted to bring this functionality to every producer out there with VirusHC plugin and any model by Access Virus.

It is now much faster to scroll thru patches and make edits within your DAW. The best part is, when you reopen your project, you don’t have to worry about the patch data you had on your synth while producing: Our plugin stores all the data within the project and when you reopen the project, all of the used data gets sent to your hardware, automatically! No more saving, loading or transferring patch data. Welcome total recall.

  • Control any model of Access Virus directly from your DAW.
  • Automate almost every parameter directly from your DAW.
  • No need to remember CC’s for each knobs / per synthesizer. Goodbye sticky notes!
  • Load, Edit and Store patches into hardware memory or in your HDD personal library.
  • Randomize any part!
  • Store any Virus compatible soundset in your HDD library folder and browse it from our plugin.
  • Send banks or individual patches from librarian to hardware.
  • Request banks or individual patches from hardware to librarian.
  • Total Recall: When you reopen your project, all of the data used in it, will be sent to the hardware, automatically!

Check Specifications tab for more info about the plug-in capabilities.

Setting Up the Connection

It is very easy to setup our plugin and to start using in your productions. Just follow the steps below and you can’t go wrong. Check our Articles for more guidance and troubleshooting.

DAW Settings:

  • Fire up your DAW and head to settings.
  • Make sure MIDI input from the terminal used with your synth is disabled or adjust a filter in settings to disable CC and SysEx messages passing through.
  • Load our VirusHC Plugin and select appropriate MIDI terminals from the upper right corner where your Virus is connected. Only MIDI in and out, MIDI thru is not supported.
  • Plugin is now ready to receive and send data to your Virus.

Synthesizer Settings:

Fire up your Virus and click system to edit MIDI parameters (config in TI-range). Check parameters below and make sure they match:

  • Midi Dump RX: Enabled
  • SoftThru : Off
  • LoPage : Contr
  • HiPage : SysEx
  • MemProtect : Off
  • Virus is now ready to communicate with our plugin. If not, check Device ID and that they match. Enjoy!

    DAW MIDI Filtering:

    It is important to filter hardware MIDI messages coming from the Virus to avoid double processing the messages. Double processing happens when message is first received via the plug-in MIDI interface and then again from DAW MIDI interface.

    MIDI in Windows environment does not support recourse sharing (in most cases), so you would have to disable the MIDI ports from DAW anyway.

    More info in our Setting MIDI Devices User Guide.

    Check Downloads / Socials tab for detailed synthesizer settings.

    What you CAN do with our Access VirusHC plug-in:

    • Control your Access Virus hardware synthesizer from your DAW over MIDI.
    • Edit almost every parameter of your synthesizer from our plug-in.
    • We added a bit more than 5600 parameters to the plugin (16 parts) so the sound editing should be painless and quick task.
    • Automate almost every parameter in your DAW.
    • Easier to handle automations than trying to remember hundreds of #CC’s.
    • Layer multiple patches to create massive leads or such.
    • Changing part from plugin changes part in hardware and vice versa.
    • Mute, adjust levels, panning, outputs and such from the plugin, per channel.
    • Parameters that are available for automation will be listed on your DAW.(Ableton Live can’t see our parameters, so you have to teach it).
    • Total Recall of the sounds used up on project reload.
    • All of the current parameters from the plugin will be sent to the hardwares temp memory up on project reload!
      Time saver when thinking about storing, naming and loading data from multiple hardwares per project.
    • Plugin reacts to hardware knob movements and displays knob, slider, menu and button values within the plugin display.
    • Virus model selector in “multi settings” page allows to show the parameters which are available to your Virus model.
    • Store banks to your Virus from the librarian.
    • Store patches to your Virus from the librarian.
    • Request banks from your Virus to the librarian.
    • Request patches from your Virus to the librarian.
    • Store requested or modified bank data to your own library (on your HDD).
    • View & edit patch name in plug-in interface.
    • Librarian supports MIDI and SysEx soundset formats across all Virus models.
    • Select next or previous librarian patch from hardware.
    • Select next or previous hardware patch from librarian.
    • Move patches from one bank to another and save as you like.
    • You can send patches from the plug-in to your synthesizers Temp memory buffer OR you can write user memory slots through our plug-in.
    • Download and put all of the Virus soundsets in one folder for quick access through the plugin.
    • Each part can have its own patch.
    • Each part patch name can be set from the plugin window.
    • Each part has its own parameters which you can automate from your DAW.
    • Changing part from plugin changes part in hardware and vice versa.
    • Layer multiple patches to create massive leads or such.

    What our plug-in can NOT do:

    • Transmit any audio. You have to plug your Synthesizers audio jacks into your mixer in order to hear the sound.
    • You can not remotely start and / or shut down your Synthesizer.

    Operating system specified settings / limits:

    Windows limitations

    Since Windows platform CAN NOT share resources between applications, it is important that you disable the MIDI input and output from your DAWs settings which you are intending to use with our plugin. If you leave the port open, our plugin will see it and once you click to use it, it WILL crash your DAW and you will lose your data. Check our tutorials for videos and documents to get everything working properly!

    macOS limitations

    macOS works “out from the box” with resource sharing, you are good to go once you insert the plugin into your DAW. However, our plugin can cause you a MIDI loop if you leave the port open / unfiltered from your hardware to your DAW. You can set various filters in your DAW. (please refer to your DAW manual how to do it).

    General Q&A

    Do you accept Refunds?
    Since we deliver digital download product with lifetime license, refunds are only given at the discretion of the management. You should download the DEMO first to give it a go and read our guides through properly.

    Does this plug-in generate sound?
    Not at the moment. You can only control the real synthesizer with our plug-in.
In future, there might be PRO upgrades available, which will eliminate the need of the hardware completely and our plug-in works as a regular VSTi / AudioUnit / AAX instrument plug-in.

    What are the plug-in requirements?
    You need the real hardware synthesizer which the editor is made for. If PRO upgrade is available, hardware is not required.
    List for requirements:

    • You need the real hardware synth, which the editor is made for.
    • 32/64-bit AudioUnit / VST host for Mac or PC.
    • MIDI interface. A good one which supports SysEx messages. Don’t buy anything which is less than 50€.
    • Direct MIDI in / out connection between your synth and the MIDI interface. No MIDI Thru connections or MIDI in only / MIDI out only connections.
    • Audio cables from the synth to soundcard or mixer in order to hear the sound.
    • At least 1600×1024 pixels resolution.

    Why my DAW crashes when I set MIDI in / out from the plug-in?
    Be sure to follow our User Guides to setup your DAW environment properly before using our plug-ins.

    Which functions are not available in the DEMO version?

    1. User can not save requested data from synthesizer to HDD.
    2. User can not store patches from librarian to synthesizer.
    3. Total Recall is disabled. This means, your last used plug-in settings will not be sent to your synthesizer up on loading the project.
    4. Plug-in parameters are not visible for DAW to automate.
    5. Demo version can not be registered.

    Can I transfer my license to someone else or include it when I sell the synth?
    No. Once you purchase the license for the plug-in, you are solely entitled to lifetime support for the plug-in. It does not make sense to us, that once you sell the license, we would have to start supporting a new “client”.

    Can I use my license on multiple computers?
    Yes as long as the computer is yours. If we get support requests made with your license, by someone else than you, your license will be deleted.

    Do I need a internet connection to activate the plug-in?
    No, you can purchase the plug-in license from our store and download the license.key and full installers and bring them to your offline computer for setup.

    I just purchased the plug-in, where can I download the license?
    Click My Account and navigate to Orders tab. Once you are there, click on the order which contains the license for our plug-in and download from there.

    How do I add the license.key for the plug-in to register?
    license.key needs to be located in \User\Documents\Mystery Islands Music\”plug-in name”\ in order to register. * UPDATE * macOS users, except Access VirusHC users should place the license.key to /Library/Audio/Presets/Mystery Islands Music/”plug-in name”/ folder.

    Reload your project or plug-in instance in order to validate.

    Why plug-in says reload license after copying license to right folder?
    Plug-in has failed to locate the proper file or the license check failed. Make sure the license is called “license.key” in the plug-in folder and not “license.key.txt”. If you see .txt appended, rename the file to “license.key” and try to validate again.

    Where is the plug-in User Manual located?
    We do not ship / deliver PDF or printer version of your documentary. You can find all the Online User Guides from our Support Site.
* UPDATE * We will start to ship How To manual series with our products in 2020.

    Why plug-in displays DEMO version after purchasing the license?
    You need to download and install FULL version of the plug-in in order to register it. Check next question for instructions.

    Where can I find the FULL version installer?
    Click Downloads or the product Downloads tab after purchase. Your FULL version installers should appear there.

    Do I need to remove the DEMO before installing FULL version?
    No. FULL installer will overwrite the DEMO version from your harddrive.

    If I place pre-order for upcoming plug-in product, will I have access to beta version?
    Yes. We will provide beta version of your product as soon as possible.

    Is the pre-order charged upfront or at release date?
    Pre-orders are charged immediately. This is a great opportunity for you to save some cash before any sales take place and you will get early access to the plug-in.

    Realistic Bi-directional Graphical User Interface

    Our graphical user interface design has been made to make everything from sound design to patch editing as smooth as possible. When you move a slider, push a button or twist a knob in your hardware, software will respond at appropriate layer/part.

    All the edits are stored within the project, so once the project is opened up again, Total Recall will send the data to hardware automatically.

    Patch and Multi mode management

    Access VirusHC comes with ability to control all 16 multi parts from the single plug-in instance. This means, you can have multiple patches on your Virus playing at the same time, from different MIDI channel.

    You can send patches from Librarian Browser to your selected Layer:

    • Click Part (1-16) on Left mini mixer section and double click a patch on the librarian to send the patch to the selected layer.

    Access VirusHC and Automation


    With FULL version of Access VirusHC plug-in, you can automate almost every parameter right from your DAW without having to remember all of the MIDI CC’s.

    This can be done easily by setting your DAW automation to Write or Latch mode and then turning the knob from the hardware or the plug-in.

    Some of the SysEx parameters are not available due to a lot bandwidth taken from the MIDI cable.
