I downloaded the demo of this a few days ago and thought I’d pass it on. It does one of the most spot on Virus C emulations I’ve ever heard, in fact I think it’s the only one. There is an excellent recreation of the “Overture” patch in here that is astounding! I’m going to have to do an A/B demo. ElectraX is also capable of a wide range of sounds as demonstrated in the video.
