Everything you need to know about our plug-in install, setup steps, configuration and usage of various features
for Access Virus Editor & Librarian plug-in by Mystery Islands Music
v3.0.0 - 2021-October-26
Virus Editor MAKE THE CONNECTION, AGAIN
Select your Virus model
Before we set MIDI input and MIDI output in the plug-in, it is important to select appropriate Virus model  so that the communication works as expected.
- Virus A users should select Virus A-range
- Virus Rack users should select Virus Rack
- Virus B, Virus KB, Virus Indigo and Virus Classic users should select Virus B-range
- Virus C, Virus KC and Virus Indigo 2 users should select Virus C-range
- Virus Rack XL users should select Virus Rack XL
- Virus TI (1 / 2) and Virus TI Polar users should select Virus TI-range
- Virus TI Snow users should select Virus TI Snow
Selecting MIDI In and MIDI Out
First choose MIDI IN , where your Virus MIDI Out is connected in at. Then choose MIDI OUT  which will send data to your Virus MIDI Input.
If you use Virus TI with USB connection, then choose Virus TI Synth for MIDI In and MIDI Out. Both can not be used at the same time!
After setting MIDI OUT, plug-in will scan for the hardware and auto-detect the Device ID if there is no immediate response. Plug-in Control Display  will say “Plug-in is ready to go!”, when system settings are received from the Virus.
Advanced MIDI Settings
We included Advanced MIDI Settings function to Virus Editor plug-in so that you can control which messages gets processed and which do not. You can open Advaced MIDI Settings window from by clicking ADV. MIDI SETTINGS button in the plug-in user interface.
You can block messages being processed from DAW or from the Synthesizer itself. Settings seen in the image below are default values.
Synchronize DATA from your synthesizer to plug-in
Open PATCH LIBRARIAN  window and click SYNC DATA FROM HW  button to request current Arrangement data to the plug-in user interface.
Plug-in will now request the currently active hardware data to the plug-in user interface. This is quite important in order to make program changes and / or send data to your synthesizer from the librarian.
Plug-in Control Display  will show “Data request completed!” message once data has been synchronized. Now you can tweak your sounds as you wish.
If something in your settings is wrong, Plug-in Control Display  will inform you that the process has timed out or no response from Virus!
TIP #1: Be patient and do not disturb the data flow with any knob movements or so. This will ensure the data packages are being sent as supposed and you are not going to receive any SysEx error messages! While making changes to your patch, might be good to stop playback too.
