    MacOS Status: You can get it running sloppily with Max4live devices in Ableton but I couldn't find a way to figure out how to get the Virus Interface that was mentioned in the tutorial working, even with IAC drivers etc., I have tried everything :/

    its difficult in ableton itself. you need a virtual midi cable to connect the GUIs and the plugin with. (Ableton does not transfer sysex messages, which the virus needs, that how the virus and the GUI are talking with each other.)

    easiest way for ableton are the M4L controllers and this seems to work fine for me.

    Almost too good if I look at this fellow user numbers...
    Should be 21-22% faster using 1-2 cores than mine s. Well my, I just lost my keyboard config lol
    228Mips Virus B
    239Mips Virus C

    Not making much sense. Wrong ROMs perhaps... I ll look into it...

    Edited: they are valid. the only unusual thing in my PC are very tight DRAM timings. Due to using 3200Mhz at only 2400Mhz. Not enough to make that good score though.

    i'd be happy if the engine could be ported to a synthedit, reaktor, or flowstone module. then someone like K. Brown could make all the guis in one day.

    you cant port the rom and porting the DSP emu to those is not possible as it does emulate the whole DSP with all instructions.

    What are the M4L controllers I could try to control the Emulator? I am unable to get the VirusHC-editor to work in Ableton, not knowing how to make the LoopMIDI connection with the Emulator.

    I'm very impressed with all of this - for some reason, I never imagined hardware being truly emulated as such! One question I do have though that I hope can be answered - is this currently only able to play the default sound? I have tried both the Virus B and C ROMs in Logic and Live with the .BIN file and components together in the same folder (Library/Audio/Plug-ins/Components) but I can only seem to get it to play one sound (named "default")? It is probably my fault but I can't see any way to make it play any other sounds. Can anyone please help or explain what I am not understanding correctly or may be doing wrong?

    You can use the editors to change patch, or you can also send a program Change / Bank Change to the emulator and it will change sounds.

    Does the Emulation memorize settings after project reload?
    I always get back to default sound when connecting with VirusHC Editor DEMO version.

    @Xupito Doesn't make sense at all to have more MIPS on the Virus C.

    Here my result from old iMac (Bench main system will follow soon).

    iMac Mid 2011 Core i5 2,5GHz:
    Virus B ~127 MIPS
    Virus C ~83 MIPS

    So nice i can run a Virus B on this machine, need at least 65% more optimization to run Virus C as well.

    Would such a optimization even be possible?

    :)

    [Edit]
    To answer my own question lol...
