Re: New OS Update - v1.4.3

Each preset has 4 oscillators, so if you mean 20 oscillators (actually 10 pairs of oscillators) playing 5 different presets, you would be correct.

As for different preset that are not in order - yes, this will be possible with the future “multimode” I would say, but that is still in the works.

Re: New OS Update - v1.4.3

Just create 5 presets in a series that have notably different sounds, then go to the first one and turn on the Patch Chain parameter, then save that preset. When you recall the preset, it will take a bit longer to first load, but you will note as you select different keys you will hear 2 voices each...

New OS Update - v1.4.3

Released today, v1.4.3 OS fixes a few small display things, and adds two new features: 1) Sample Load routine - Instead of loading samples from the System page, as we have done, now the loading is done within the Preset, on Home page 3, parameter named 'SmpPool'. Each preset can now store the sample...

Re: Question about Samples and Noise

As for the noise - I think of it as ‘global’, although as Jim pointed out, each DSP chip has its own code loaded.

Re: Developer Fund

What do you mean specifically with “Patch-level Random Tune”? Are you using the V1.4.2 OS?

Re: Question about Samples and Noise

Hi, I have to questions: 1. Each time I launch the Solaris, it loads the "Glockenspiel" as default samples pool. If I select a patch that uses another samples pool, it is not loaded and I have to do it manually each time. Should the Solaris not load the correct sample pools when necessary? 2. You c...

Is the $250 price-tag for the OLED displays you offer the current production round the same for retrofitting?

Re: FM programming help needed

Please forgive the long message, but I want to lay out in detail why I think there's something amiss with linear FM on the Solaris. The possibility of using Linear FM on the Solaris was something I was really interested in, but having now tried it, the current implementation of linear FM just doesn...

Re: OLED text displays

Finally, we have a definite plan to offer OLED displays with new plexiglas coverings. The cost will be $250 per Solaris, which we are offering first to the current Round 7 pre-orders. If you are a current Solaris owner, but would like to have your 5 text displays replaced with the OLED displays, ple...
