Re: Developer Fund *fairness*

For those who do not pay, charge for the "upgrade" a modest amount. This will determine who wants the upgrade and it will put money back into the process so the rest of us can benefit. Not everyone can pay upfront. But some can pay after its all done. I'm sure some of the things like FM synthesis (e...

Re: Developer Fund

Hi John, I can contribute via PayPal and happy to do so. I can do $1K to $2K. If someone wants to actually write some code for things that I want (like phase modulation / FM style oscillators), then I could even do $5K. It all depends on how much can I get of what I would like. Let me know. Thanks, ...

RACKMOUNT SOLARIS REVISITED

I am wondering how many folks would buy a Solaris Rackmount (expander) version with note-overflow (to increase polyphony) and other things?
If there is a rackmount in the future, please count me in :)

Re: Modulus .002 + Solaris

I own both. Just started a Soundcloud - and will be updating more regularly. https://soundcloud.com/user-25189817 Of course, in a mix, no-one can really tell which synth is which (well, maybe you can hear where the CS80 plays only because it has a weirdly distinctive filter). But most of my synths g...

Re: Boutique Synth Manufacture / SUNSYN / SOLARIS etc.

Having the SOLARIS for a year, A SUNSYN and also getting getting to compare it to a ROLAND and other keyboards.

Conclusion: The SOLARIS has its own sound and can mimic the othrs were well.

I am super happy I bought it.

Cheers :)

Re: Hi forum readers, Solaris owners and waiting listers

I waited a long time, relatively, to get a keyboard. While I was waiting, I bought a few other keyboards and played with them The cool this is that after two years, when I got the SOLARIS, I was very happy that I got rid of the other two keyboards - so the wait had been well worth it.

Re: Current State of the Solaris OS and Ongoing Development

I am starting to look into the SOLARIS from a software coding point of view. I notice a few things; 1) No other manufacturers, expect Symbolic Sound (Kyma/Pacarana) provides hardware with a software that is accessible. I am a registered owner of two Kyma systems but these are deep and not really use...

Re: SOLARIS ULTRA

I ran the SOLARIS through my MODCAN - sounds great and the these two go together really well. On the MODCAN I have the Oberheim MATRIX filters, the MOOG ladders and ARP filters (all analog) and I have enough in my modular (112 modules) to run full polyphony with the SOLARIS. THe other synth that rea...

Re: Current State of the Solaris OS and Ongoing Development

Personally, I have not had any MIDI issues. But, most of the time, I am playing SOLARIS through a KURZWEIL MIDI BOARD routed with MIDI conversion through ABLETON (so I can have channel based on mono per channel polyphonic aftertouch). Works for me. I am feel bad to have not yet posted a video but ti...

Re: Polyphonic Aftertouch As A Modulation Source

Also, you can use midi - mapping. I use the Ableton environment with MAX for LIVE to do some neat homebrew midi SOLARIS and it works really, really well. Oh, and by the way, I am NEVER selling the machine though it would be great to get the SOLARIS sources so I could perhaps publish some open-source...

Controller Inversion Feature Request

I would like to have an "invert" controller in the CALIBRATION setup as well as a seperate "invert" controller in the performance (main LCD) setup. This would be super useful for many different reasons. For example, it is nice to sometimes have inversion of control as a global without having to do i...

REVIEW: Experience with the SOLARIS SYNTH

This is a post about my user experiences. Now that I have had the time to re-adjust my workflow (which is normal for any new synth), and getting used to intuitively looking to the LCD that has the parameters I need to work on, I am really finding this to be a real-time, performance friendly synth.
