Introduction Touch for Virus

Wondering what’s so special about Touch for Virus? Well, it add some nice new features to your old friend:

The roughly 450 parameters which define a patch on Virus TI are groupd in 7 modules. You can navigate between those modules using the tabs right below the toolbar.
Each module has its own presets. There are default presets available, but you can also add your own by using the save button above the list. You can delete
module preset by swiping them to the left, just like in IOS Mail.
Module presets enable you to build new patches quickly by just trying new combinations. You can easely try a given oscillator module preset with different filter module presets or modulation module presets.
This is easy, fun to do and, in my experience, boosts inspiration!

Touch based editing, intuitive controls
Well, editing patches on Virus TI can be sometimes frusttrating. Get rid of all these deep menu’s abd use your large iPad instead.
