Re: OLED text displays

To those of you who have been asking about having OLED displays for your Solaris - there is a display that we could possibly make work in the Solaris. The parts cost from Mouser would be $750 (plus tax & shipping) for 5 of the displays. I’m not sure what other modifications or adapter we would need...

Re: Human readable Bank and Preset names

We have a beta OS in testing that now allows “human readable” preset and bank names. Please contact me if you are interested in testing it. (Note that you need to back up your presets data before changing any names, as the currently released OS will not be able to handle them. Only use with v 1.4.1...

Is it possible to add human readable preset and bank names in a future OS update? Make it a lot easier to manage banks and add new preset banks. :D
I have asked Jim about what would be the possibility....
+1 !

Re: Solaris future questions.

With the industry moving towards more ARM -- better tools, cheaper, better price/performance -- like the H9000 and Quantum, how much work would it be to move the existing code onto an ARM setup vs. trying to continue down the SHARC path? There would be other advantages too such as a larger base of ...

Re: other Solaris hardware ideas

Yes, I know - although I'm not a big believer in the Gearslutz audience as being those who are interested in high-end instruments. I'm not familiar with Muffwiggler, so I’ll have a look there. I did send out an email a little while ago to all of the Solaris owners I have in my database, but it’s on...

Re: New preset bank soon

Brilliant. Thank you John!

I hope we are also making progress towards a library utility to help sort all these presets.

Help! Solaris as a midi controller (midi CC)

Hello Solaris brothers (and sisters):

Anybody get those knobs to send midi CC?

I downloaded a trial of Midi Bome and was able to capture the sysex knob data and convert it to CC.

But ... I can not get the CC data to read 0-127

Is it possible to do this?

Thanks 🙏

Re: Developer Fund

Any news on this? I’d love for someone to get started on a utility/librarian. I keep putting off organizing presets cause it’s no fun :( Keep us updated. OK Everyone! I have a response from MIDi Quest regarding a full-fledged editor software package. The estimated cost is $10,000-$14,000 to develop...

Yes, absolutely! We wanted to say a bit more, but couldn’t until we were ready to release 1.4.
Woo-hoo!!

Re: other Solaris hardware ideas

Have you also looked at an internal board upgrade, instead of building an external box? Yes, this is already in the works, as I’ve posted elsewhere, but it will take quite some time to get it working. All the code has to be migrated to the new board. It will be an interesting puzzle. To balance tim...

Re: Developer Fund

John, I would vote that part of the developer fund be used to hire someone to work on the external utilities (if the original developers will open source their code). It might not be a huge project to combine, polish and finish them, and there is sure to be someone skilled in external librarian/util...
