Re: Envelope release time

When you dial the Release time to the right, you should get 20.00 seconds within 3 turns of the knob. Are you not seeing that?

Re: Amplifier Envelope for each part/VCO

So, here’s the thing - EG 6 is the ‘Master’ envelope overall, because the system needs a way to know when each voice is ‘done’ before reassigning it or using it in the different mode settings (legato, etc,), so, even though you can set up 4 different envelopes to each of the 4 Amp sections, these ar...

Re: How to load samples into Solaris

I’ve updated the free utilities from Subliminal Effects, since he is no longer hosting his Website. People can use the Sample Pooler to do what you’re asking: http://forums.johnbowen.com/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=16100&p=19354#p19354 Note that you don’t need to convert the .wav file to .raw - the utility...

When I find a .wav file in the utility window, I see a report of what the .txt file is going to have in it, and when I click on the ‘Extract Sample Pool’ button, it produces both a .raw file and a proper Sample Pool text file (and these are located in the sam...

Re: CF reader failed?

What’s odd here is that you must have been using it as normal when you went to power it up, so it had been working in place. I’ve not heard of the reader just failing like that - only if some pins became bent from frequent and careless insert & removal. I’ll run this by some hardware guys in the bus...

Re: USB freeze Nuendo on init

Arnaud,
