I'm interested to know what particular ROMs people are using who are not getting any CPU spikes in case that makes a difference

They are using the latest versions released probably?
Access Virus B v4.9
Access Virus C/KC/Indigo v6.6. However. According to the official Access Virus website the latest version available for download is 6.5 (under Downloads/Discontinued products/Operating systems) - but the Synthesizer ROM Archive website says it's v6.6. I checked the .bin file and for sure it says 6.6. This is a bit weird.
Anyone knows why there is no 6.6 update available from Access website?

Not much difference in performance here on my 4th generation i7 with the new version. Pretty much unusable for pads or high poly count with the Virus C ROM. The most demanding VSTi in my arsenal, it's not even close. Several times heavier on the CPU than Diva for example. If the emulator can not be further heavily optimized, it's not an option for outdated CPU's. I wonder, without the overhead of the emulation, how demanding on the CPU would a Virus C be, in native format. :)

Sooo much. This is the only soft synth development to get me excited synths Plogues portaFM.

I hope this lives up to my expectations, haven't read any of the thread. But if I can have a Walford MW on my laptop with a good GUI I will be very happy.

Would this work on an raspberry pi 4 with linux? I tried to find the ROM´s but failed, so before I go back to trying this, maybe it´s good to know if it´s even worth it.
I read on the Discord that the ARM processor version is not ready yet. And the Raspberry Pi likely wont be powerful enough to run it as is at present until further optimizations are found. Some people with much more powerful AMD processors are struggling with CPU spikes.

I made a 64 bit -> 64 bit JBridged version of the emu to see what would happen. The CPU core load dropped dramatically making the Virus C playable with big pads on my 9900k DAW. Only downside is that the JBridged version doesn't accept patch sysex from an editor. Still it's great for browsing the Virus C presets.

I read on another forum that there's a test version of JBridge that supports sysex so I've requested a copy to test.

Update: I was sent the test JBridge and it works like a charm receiving sysex sent from the Mystery Islands editor. It makes the DSP emu Virus C useable here for big pads.

Yeah I’m waiting for that too, somehow it’s not easy to setup with logic. Is there any source for a setup with logic?

Hello again :)

I just wanted to say thank you to everybody whos supporting this project and extra thanks to the people who have donated, we used some of this money to buy a Raspberry Pi which enabled us to work on the ARM version of the Emulator

Im now proud to say we now officially support the Mac M1 :)

DSP563xx Emulator v1.1.9 Change Log (Now avaliable for Download)

- [Imp] An arm64 JIT recompiler has been implemented, which gives a large performance boost on Apple M1, Raspberry Pi and other arm64 based CPUs
- [Imp] Default Master Volume is now set to 127 instead of 100
- [Imp] Small performance improvements on x64

- [Fix] plugin did not remember Single/Multi mode switch
- [Fix] MIDI clock events confused DSP and corrupted other MIDI events, such as Pitch Bend and others.
- [Fix] ROM location search did not find any ROM in certain circumstances
- [Fix] state restore after reopening plugin sent default presets before sending the correct ones
- [Fix] plugin not responding to MIDI Sysex "Global Request"

Supergood news! Which rpi model will this work with? I´m intending to try with 4B, but curious about if it also runs on for instance the previous generation.

Unfortunatley the Pi isnt powerful enough to run the Emulator, the ARM support was intended for the Apple M1

I have the emulator installed on my M1 mac mini, loads up fine, I can hear a preset, obviously I cannot edit anything until I have an editor installed.

However......for windows you need loopmidi setup, but what about OSX? What program should I download to set up the emulator so I can use an editor in Ableton?
