is quite some time ago, when I was active in this forum. I got my Access Virus TI Snow in 2009 and worked about 2 years with it.
I created songs with the virus using the Magix Samplitude Music Studio 15 (as DAW) and the virus as VST instrument. It worked quite well. Of course you forget some strugglings over the years
With that environment, I created songs like this
(and others, as NoLie6 in Youtube)
as one example. Most of the time the 4 tracks that the Virus is able, were sufficient to me. Other tracks if necessary (like drums) came from Music Studio and included instruments.
Nowadays I rembered those days, and got the impulse to start again making music (just for fun). This time I want to make more 'ambient' stuff with pads and weirrd sounds ect.
So my original PC, where I had done this, is still there, but meanwhile I have a much neuer PC (Windows10) and decided to upgrade the Samplitude Music Studio to the newest version 2021.
But unfortunately, this Music Studio and the Virus are not finding a way. Everything is quite instable. Sometimes the virus is lost from a track when loading a project. Quite often the virus says: "No free Virus available", even when I started the DAW and load the project the first time.
I assume that nobody here is using this DAW, but much more professional and more expensive ones. Therefore I do not expect directly help with that DAW.
But maybe you have some hint, what could probably make the Virus with a DAW instable etc.
The Virus TI Snow shows the version 5.1.7.00 when starting. I update it, a year ago.
