    A new feedback from one of our clients….

    Ich war auf der Suche nach einem guten Editor für meinen Access Virus B.
    Nach kurzer Zeit im Netz bin ich auf Solar3d-Software gestossen!!
    Habe es mir gekauft und erstmal gestaunt was man alles damit machen kann.
    Alle meine Erwartungen wurden übertroffen!!!
    Nach einiger Zeit kommt man auch recht gut zurecht. An der ein oder anderen Stelle
    hatte ich dennoch Fragen.
    Das war absolut kein Problem, habe den Support kontaktiert und prompt meine Fragen beantwortet bekommen.
    Muss dazu sagen, dass es der beste Support ist, den ich in Sachen Programm und Musik bis jetzt bekommen
    Sehr hilfsbereit und super vermittelt, wie und was man alles mit dem Programm anstellen kann.
    Seitdem kann ich meine Sounds super organisieren und habe einen schnellen Zugriff auf alle Parameter und
    Das Programm ist sehr sinnvoll um z.B. Bass, Lead´s, Percussion´s, usw. zusammen zu fassen und zu speichern.
    Zusätzlich gibt es sogar noch einiges an Sound´s dabei!!!

    Kann ich nur jedem Virus-Besitzer empfehlen!!!

  10. Vcommander rocks! I’ve been searching and searching for a way to incorporate my Access Virus C into Ableton for the longest time. Since Sound Diver is no longer supported, I’m so thankful to have found this solution. It’s amazing to have the ability to adjust and automate all those parameters in my DAW, to save, back up and rename patches and even have multi support. Thanks so much!
