I don't know, I bought my TI new, and tried to sell it a few years ago, and would have had to lose almost a grand to price it competitively. It was just better to keep it, but in all fairness I really can't deny that it's an awesome synth. Actually, I can't figure out what the TI2 offers over the TI that would justify spending the extra cost. (Holy alternative option, batman!)Hybrid88 wrote:But yeah, brilliant synth, covers a lot of sonic ground, a keeper? Maybe. But one thing is for sure, when a replacement model comes out, it won't look quite so appealing anymore. Still, they do hold their value quite well.

I'm looking to spend money on a new synth and think I'm looking at anything up to £2000. Currently I'm liking the look of the Access Virus TI2, however, having done some reading around it I find it is now 4 years old - think it was released in 2009. I've therefore a few questions relating to this:
1. Does anyone think this keyboard is still worth the £1950 that it still sells for?
2. Does anyone know if Access are planning to release a new version soon - have they really not released anything for 4 years?
3. Would anyone recommend anything else other than this keyboard that sits within my budget? Relating to this:
- I particularly like virtual analogue sounds and like the ability to create sounds.
- I'm not a big fan of pressing buttons - one of the reasons I prefer the dial/knob UI rather than the LCD UI.
- I like dirty sounds - really like contrasting dirty with smooth/shiny sounds - the ability to do both would be great.
- I'd like to think anything I buy would be a keeper....
Any thoughts, ideas, help - greatly appreciated!!!
thanks for replies....
i will check out other mentioned synths. I had read that the difference between a virus B/C compared to the TI is a world apart.....but guess might be one persons view.
what do you think a good price would be for a second hand TI2 keyboard?
