Access Virus A, B, C, Rack, Rack XL, and Classic needs SAB 80C535 and 80C515 cores (i8051-based SoC), TMS56303, 56311, 56362 DSPs depending on model.
Hey, thanks for the Input :) yes, fully aware of this, we currently have a Virus C stripped down and know what every component on the board is

Update: Finally, took a big step forward. We are reaching areas in the code now that have unimplemented instructions. The Emulator is now running around 80Mhz

Hi numerouno,

congrats for this, very interesting indeed. Have you any specific idea / goal for this project ?

For example, an open source 56K (+ several system specific) emulator plugin (capable of executing "roms") ?

That would be awesome :)

HUGE UPDATE: We currently have the Emulator running the Access Virus C ROM to the point that we are now able to load patches from the factory bank and have it output audio

Here are a couple of Audio examples:

Basically the Virus runs around 120Mhz, we need to get the emulator running at the same speed :)

Not just Virus. Basically any synth that uses the DSP56362

So what will be the end product?

A Virus C emulation? A wrapper that whould allow running Virus PoCo or TDM on a regular PC? Or what?

I wonder too. Sounds to me as if you'd have to own the hardware, or the Powercore or TDM version of the Virus to be able to legally use this.
Plugins and a DAW. On an operating system. Which runs on a computer.

Indeed, it doesn't seem one would be able to get a Virus PoCo/TDM license now.

ROM emulator. You'd need to source the Virus firmware ROM youself.
