The TI Snow has the same synthesizer engine found in the rest of the TI series. In a nutshell, this includes three oscillators with one sub oscillator per voice, a wide collection of waveforms including the classic Virus virtual analog models, the massive HyperSaw, Wavetable, Graintable, and Formant waveforms. Two multi-mode filters (HP, LP, BP, BS) and an Analog Filter mode modeled after the Moog cascade filter with 6 to 24 dB/oct slopes. A modulation matrix with 6 sources and 3 destinations each (18 routings total). Three LFOs and two very fast ADSTR envelope generators. A fully featured 32-step arpeggiator for creating really nice and musical arpeggiated patterns. A complete effects section with 129 parallel effects. And finally, the Atomizer beat slicer-n-dicer.

All parameters are controlled from three knobs located below the white LCD display screen. They can be assigned to a parameter from the rows of buttons on the right which also double as patch select buttons. Even though the TI Snow has eliminated almost all on-board knobs in order to slim it down, the Snow is still just as flexible and programmable as the original...albeit, there will be a lot of menu diving to get to the desired parameters. Fortunately the TI system has the VIRUSControl plug-in software that will give you in-depth graphical access to all parameters when connected to a computer. This is the exact same control plug-in software used by the rest of the TI series and is really the key to blowing any limitations of the Snow's hardware interface out of the water.
