Dream State Vol.1 is a new set of 64 sounds for any of the Virus TI synthesizers. The bank makes use of modwheel and soft-knob assignments for expressive patches. Sounds range from modern trance and dance music to cinematic and ambient explorations. While the Virus absolutely nails trance sounds, it’s also exceptional when it comes to pads, delivering a deep and lush sound, almost cinematic in quality. As a fun side note, I’ve been working on this bank since 2014, which makes this by far the longest I’ve ever worked on a single bank. I felt it was important to spend a lot of time getting to know the TI’s sound engine to get the best from it. Some of these patches do actually go back to 2014, although they have been tweaked here and there since then.
Each patch is optimized to use as little DSP as necessary, letting you do more without bouncing to audio. Additionally all the sounds are programmed with category filters.
