Re: We need more Solaris videos!

I did couple of videos for the SOLARIS before it shipped to its new owner and they're on YouTube; but unfortunately the trolls shat all over it on YouTube so I had to turn commenting off and now I don't care if I did any more or not. Love the people who never do anything themseleves but stomp all ov...

Re: New SOLARIS walk-through videos (updated!)

My pleasure... I know they're not perfect, but was either these or nothing before boxing it up to ship to new owner. I had posted somewhere I would post some videos - so this was me living up to that. Unfortunately, i had also planned to do a bank of my own sounds, but obviously that not going to ha...

Re: New SOLARIS bank one walk-through video (updated #2)

UPDATED: And here is video #2 - with direct audio from the Solaris' outputs - not auditioning for a talent show here, just whackin' some keys to get through sound banks as quick as possible due to 20 min. limit on video with my Nikon DSLR: (NOTE: UPDATED 7.17.12 3pm PDT to reduce the hum/noise intro...

Re: New SOLARIS bank one walk-through video

HI, folks, give my videos for the Solaris a 'thumbs up' if you can; stupid trolls who hate either the Solaris, JB, or the fact I didn't record direct audio on first video (sheesh people, what do you want for free?) have been giving the first one a thumbs down (WHY?) ... anyway ... video 2 has direct...

Re: New SOLARIS bank one walk-through video

correction to the video: I mistakenly state in video that you need to hit the apply/enter button when using up/down button, and I had gotten that impression by using the dial to scroll through stuff.... didn't RTFM on that. My bad. Correction from JB: "Presets are automatically selected when you use...

New SOLARIS walk-through videos (updated!)

First in the series, of quick (well, 20 minutes each), walk throughs of the SOLARIS sounds. Not rehearsed, or scripted, just messed with. Many sounds my first time hearing them. I also intentionally tried not to play any of my own compositions too much to avoid copyright issues; so stuck in the same...

Re: Solaris White -(sold)

[*UPDATED*] Hi, folks: sold to Michael in NY this week (7/12-13/2012) Thanks for adopting my Solaris! Wish I had the space, the time, and the brain cells to learn something new, sadly no. I will say the sound is truly amazing ... you can tell 96k when you hear it. Much more pure sound than the Virus...

Re: FS: Solaris White - brand new (FS AGAIN)

Hi everybody... have decided to sell the Solaris 100% for sure. I just don't have room in my studio, and have NO time to learn another piece of kit and I simply have way too much gear here. Must downsize. Back to house hunting. First $4K takes it. Free Fedex continental US. Local pickup okay, too. W...

Re: Official Solaris keyboard User Manual

Cool.... just checking. I know there has been some discussion of OS v1 and OS v1.1, and I'm sure you are referring to "version 1.0" of the manual vs "the manual for version 1.0" here, however that wasn't 100% clear either way, so thought I'd just ask. Presumably the manual is the 1.0 manual version,...

It is listed in the text on the cover; lower left above the UPC space.

Re: Ribbon Controllers Sending MIDI Like the ARPEGG.

+1 .. ribbon should be able to send MIDI to DAW to "record," or to control other synths as a "performance controller."
