Getting all of this right is a seemingly rare combination and the Virus did (the filter is a matter of taste as it can be a bit uppredictable/quirky/gritty/have narrow sweetspot and make your sound disappear in a strange way - BPF/HPF) and then some.
The Virus is a synth that seems to have unfathamoble depths to me.
The way I see it is it is not a synth for the impatient. You still need to spend a lot of time with it and get to know its ins and outs.
It's the depth of the Virus that makes me love it's sound (even if I've never touched one myself, only heard in music/videos). Virus TI can be a bit of a hassle for impatient indeed, that's one thing that's much better with soft synths: convenience (which makes me very thankful for Viper). But the Virus TI looks so much more fun to use than for instance a regular soft synth. The physical knobs are a big plus since you then don't have to rely as much on automation when you experiment around. If it's fun, then it's much easier to learn.

The Virus TI in particular. I realized the void comes from the lack of not having a Virus TI, so I actually had plans on getting one. T
When I bought Virus TI it was like "wow, this is how they actually do this, it's that simple vith Virus!"
That's also what I noticed with Viper and I've heard this from others as well who owns the Virus TI. Making sounds can be done very fast but the quality won't be suffering from it (rather the opposite I'd say).
