Can reason achieve virus access quality
 
ITS SEEMS TO ME THAT REASON CAN ACHIEVE PRETTY MUCH ANY THINK. BUT WITH ALOT OF HARD WORK. I KNOW THERES GOING TO BE KNOW MIDI IN OUT SO I WILL HAVE TO USE PRO TOOLS WITH REASON WHICH SOUNDS LIKE ALOT OF WORK, SO CAN REASON ACHIEVE THAT FULLY BODY SOUND THAT ACCESS GIVES. I THINK IT CAN'T THE SONIC FEELING I GET WHEN I HEAR THESE SOUNDS ARE TO GOOD, EVEN WITH A COMBINATOR WITH 4 THORS SPREAD OUT GET MUDDY CLIPPY AND I THINK THORS FILLTERS ARE CRAPPY. THOR SOUNDS VERY GOOD BUT ITS FILTERS LET IT DOWN. THIS IS THE BEST I CAN DO WRITE NOW. IF ANY ONE MAKE TRANCE AND DOING VERY WELL USING JUST REASON PLEASE SHOW ME SOME OF YOUR STUFF. HERES A SAMPLE

Reason can't sound exactly like an Access Virus, and it's not meant to.

First of all, you are talking about taste. Taste is highly personal. Some people like vanilla ice cream, others like chocolate best. Same thing with synthesizers. Some people love the Virus. But there is also synths like Roland JP8000, Waldorf Blofeld, and Alesis ION that also sound different to Virus, yet people like those synths as well.

I think that Thor sounds great in most cases for it's intended purposes, but it's not meant to sound like a Virus. So it may be a sound you like or not like. Either you learn to like it or you move on. Simple as that.

And hopefully soon, with rack extensions, you will have more choices for other synths.

I did this demo for a Club Soundset some time ago:

All of my demos for other soundsets, not only trance:

All those sounds where made with Reason 6.0 (i.e. Thor, Malström, etc)

Cheers! :)

Daniel Kandi, signed to Anjunabeats is using nothing but Reason 3.0. So he does get the big room trance sound out of mostly Subtractor and Malström.

I sold my TI Polar.....I found that I made a lot more music of better quality with Reason alone. I'm sure this isn't the way everyone does things/

Anyway, there is something to be said for having it all right there: in front of you. No realtime rendering, etc....

Can the Virus make sounds that Thor, Subtractor, Malstrom can not?...of course
Can they make sounds the Virus can't....of course

Point being....don't just use one...use the one that best fits your needs at the present time.

Not to mention more software synths nowadays sound better or as good as most hardware ones...to my ears.

And...turn caps lock off next time.

Silly question.

I understand where the original poster is coming from. I would seriously look at the Predator RE. It has some architectural similarity to a Virus. The filters have a character that can be biting and hard hitting when you need it to. It also has a decent set of internal fx. Combined with the rest of Reason, some eq and the right reverb there is nothing stopping you from creating trance. Only limited by skill and imagination. :)

Or you could wait for Antidote, which is rumored to be related to Virus.
