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.

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.

SERVICE YOU CAN COUNT ON :)

:D John had sent me a black SOLARIS (which was on my original order). However, I had changed my order after because my wife (a musician also) insisted that we get a white SOLARIS. Well, after I got the black SOLARIS I got a note from John when I mentioned it and shortly a WHITE SOLARIS arrived. I wa...

Re: If you could own the Solaris and only 3 other synths for

Hi, Along with my SOLARIS, the three synths I would keep are (1) the Rhodes Chroma ( with the 96 Knob Enabler ), (2) the CS-80, and, (3) the KYMA Pacarana. The ModCan modular that I already own is a polyphonic modular configuration so it can do any synth out there as it has all the filters, the VCO'...
