Default What happened to Indigo Virus?

I wonder why they appeared to drop that. I sure have a lot of older sessions with that VI.

The Virus and Virus Indigo plugins were strictly TDM. As such, they could only run on the TDM architecture. Goodbye TDM hardware, goodbye plugins.

I expect the reason they were never ported was because the work to rewrite the code from the ground up was viewed as being too enormous for any benefit.

The TDM card had the exact same Motorola DSP chip as the earlier Virus synths. I believe the code for the hardware Virus and the plugin was pretty much identical. The plugin certainly sounded just as good as the Access Virus B I had at the time.

Then Avid moved to Texas Instruments chips with HDX and the Indigo Virus never got ported over. Too much work apparently.

So. A Mac G5 With pcix card Pro Tools HD 7-8 with plugin and I/O gives you a virus.
Did virus work with pcie hd cards?
Pcix in chassis didn’t work.

Apple changed to Intel back then.

It worked with the Accel PCIe cards. One downside was that it wouldn’t chip share so one instance hogged a whole chip. It sounded fantastic though. It was extremely well mapped to the C|24, so well that in some ways it was easier to program than the hardware virus that had a lot of parameters hidden away in menus. Really good to automate too.

I do miss the Virus. Not that one. I mean, yeah, I hope I *miss* the virus, but I miss Virus. It sounded great and was quick. Eating a whole chip did suck.
