I've always associated Access Virus synths with cheezy, fizzy Euro Trance producers, which is almost certainly totally unfair.
One thing I have noticed is how beatifully made they are - some models have a stone mod wheel and a wooden pitchbend. Today they've announced a whole new range (new software in a few different sized boxes), including this TI Polar, with white LEDs (ooh!), a mac-style lit-up logo on the back (ooh!), aluminium side panels (ooh!) and a block of solid walnut underneath the keyboard (ooh!).

CORRECTION! Andrew Wanliss-Orlebar has just got in touch to point out that I'm not as much of an uber-geek as he thought. I've got my Access totally mixed up with my Clavia (they make the synths with stone mod wheels). Apologies to all. And, obviously, Access Virus synths are great and not at all for cheezy Euro Trance (and nor are Nord synths). Sorry.
