Access Virus TI2 Polar Darkstar Special Edition Synthesizer
If Darth Vader and Batman’s über-enemy Bane would form a band, this would be their ultimate stage synth. The industry Gun Metal style finish would make any Terminator’s mom proud. Finally, the evil-eye style LEDs and the blood red logo light on the back scare king cobras away.
The Darkstar is based on the Virus TI2 Polar. The technical specifications are identical to the Virus TI2 Polar, the color scheme of the housing does differ, as you can see.
The Gun Metal look, wood and aluminium are the main ingredients for the Special Edition. Perform with a Darkstar and you can be assured that your presence on stage will not fade into the void.
Virus TI2 Polar:
The Access Virus TI2 Polar synthesizer takes the revered Virus TI to the next level, boasting 25% more calculating power, a more robust onboard effects section, a lighter weight, and a completely redesigned housing. At the heart of the Virus TI2 Polar is the new OS3 which comes with new effects – Frequency Shifter, Tape Delay, new Distortions, and Character. What’s more, it now includes the enhanced Virus Control 3.0 plug-in, giving you even deeper control of the synthesizer and your many presets. Already a fantastic synth, expect even more from the Access Virus TI2 Polar.
