Summary: This is a digital synth and it does not try to hard to be analog but thats what is great about it. The sounds are fresh and the new effects especially the distortion models produce other worldly sounds straight out of the unit without additional processing.
Summary: WELL WHAT CAN I SAY ABOUT THIS SYNTH. IT JUST HAS EVERYTHING! DESIGN: THE POLAR OOZES SEXUALITY! ITS GOT A SOLID METAL CASE THAT COVERS THE ENTIRE SYNTH. THIS IS THEN COVERED IN A BEAUTIFUL WHITE MATT FINISH. THERE IS A WOODEN BEAM UNDER THEY KEYS AND THIS ADDS TO THE CLASSIC EFFECT.
Summary: There can be no doubt that this is a modern classic digital polysynth. The virus line started out as virtual analogue synths, and the TI is no exception, although if you are really looking for the analogue sound you are probably better off with a real analogue synth.
