Variform started as a co-op with Mel Function, and was our first one together too. We got stuck with some early version of the song and then left it to rest. Some months later I borrowed a Access Virus B from 1in10 / mfx, and I used that to reworked the tune. The internal clock of the synth was so precise that I could just run it without any MIDI sync, and it would still hold the tempo with Acid 3. I actually found myself loving the Virus B so much, that I ended up buying it from 1in10 later on and the synth became my long-term workhorse.
