How to create an evolving FM stab using Virus TI
Initialize the Virus TI, set up its MIDI channel, and program a few hits.
Click the OSC tab [Orange], Increase FM AMT to full [Purple], decrease oscillator 2 detune [Blue], and select Twin UNISON MODE, around 10 o’clock DETUNE, 2 o’clock PAN SPREAD and 12 o’clock LFO PHS [Green].
Select the FX 1 tab [Orange]. Now go to the FILTER BANK section and select Comb Filter in TYPE [Purple], change FREQ to 12 o’clock and RESONANCE to 9 o’clock [Blue].
Click the LFO tab [Orange]. ASSIGN LFO 1 to Filterbank Freq [Purple] and turn up the amount by about 2 o’clock [Blue]. Lastly Change the CLK to 8/1 [Green].
This patch sounds particularly good with a modulated band pass filter and ping pong delay. Also experiment with different tones by changing Oscillator 2 type, Filterbank Freq amount and LFO 1 clock speed.
Thank you for reading! Nick.
