Awesome! The Formant filters are a load of fun! I totally agree with you about the colour of the ribbon, John. Maybe get it to be the same colour as the joystick and/or knobs. I doubt there's anything prettier than this synth at the Musikmesse. Is it me or does the Solaris sound beefier on this vide...

The ribbon controller is breath-taking, John. Plain and simple. I remember back when a lot of us on this forum were having the whole joystick vs. ribbon controller debate. That debate is long gone now cause you've put both in. Just look at the older prototype compared to what's presently before us. ...

Wow, there's so much already under the hood and on the console itself. I'm bloated with options and quite satisfied. If $$$ wasn't an issue, PolyAT would be nice. For me endless expressability, especially live. If I could customize my Solaris, maybe I'd add a twin laser-sensor to the upper left of t...

Pushing the release date back is not a problem for me at all. I'm more than happy to wait til December or longer. I have enough toys to keep me busy til then. I understand and respect that other people have different priorities. But I'm really looking for something radically different than what I've...

Thanks for the updates and samples John. Much appreciated and exciting as always. I'm a little sad that there won't be an onboard ribbon controller, but a supporting connector for the Kurzweil Super Ribbon Controller (PC2SRIB) is a good alternative. I'm just wondering; at 60cm, if there'll be a spot...

I was just chatting with some of the guys in our studio to see what they thought of the end caps of the Oasys (venting) in comparison to the Jupiter-8 (plain), as the J8 ends look similar to the ones in the current proto of the dark Solaris. Side by side, they liked the Oasys design better, though w...

Wow! I actually think the photoshopped rendering with the vents on the aluminum side panel is fantastic! I can't imagine it would add any to the cost. Imagine if those vents lit up! Hahaha! I guess that would add to the cost! Kudos to whoever provided the image. I think those side panels alone would...

It's too bad we can't all have our cake and eat it too, but it's great JB's given us a chance to voice our opinions. I actually like the darker version without the wood ends (with the wider ends as currently appears at the top of the front page). The wider ends appear to frame the machine better for...
