Beginning with version 1.4.2 bank numbers no longer need to be consecutive. You can skip bank numbers. And they don't need to start at zero.
Ah, right! Thanks for the reminder, Jim!

Re: Solaris preset management

You can create as many presets as you want in a bank, but the Solaris will only read 0-127, so, I would say just make another bank. It’s true there’s not a Favorites function. We did increase the labels available for the category search, and there’s also User 1-10, so you could use these as a sort o...

Re: Global LFO

Actually, as I read your message, I realize that these things are really going to be in the DSP code, not the Blackfin code that Jim is working with.
I will have to bring it up with Hrast.

Re: Global LFO

At the moment the only way to do this is to use the Retrigger function as you state, and you are correct, this doesn’t work for subsequent notes played if you are holding down a previously played chord or notes. I'll see if Jim can take a look into a way we could provide a global LFO-type function f...

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: utility to create custom samples for Solaris

I have this still working on OS 10.14.5. 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: Enter Button option to load new OS not working

The “Hold Enter during startup” won’t work if you are holding down Enter BEFORE you turn on the power. You have to do that first, then hold down the Enter button.
