Re: Announcing another major update to the Solaris Operating System, v1.4.0!

Ah, that’s a good explanation. I don’t use Windows, so I’m unfamiliar with the possibilities.
Thanks for the heads up!

Re: Announcing another major update to the Solaris Operating System, v1.4.0!

Hmmm, that REALLY does not make sense! I’ve NEVER heard of needing to leave off the .raw extension for the OS to load. I am going to ask how that could possibly work.

Re: Announcing another major update to the Solaris Operating System, v1.4.0!

Managed to sort it out. My CF card was missing the txt file. Thank you for your hard work on the OS. Yes, all you need is a text file that has only a number in it. The number is 1 if you want to auto-load the OS, and after the Solaris does that, it will automatically change the text file to a 0. Th...

Re: Announcing another major update to the Solaris Operating System, v1.4.0!

Jimmy, All you really need in your OS Folder on the CF Card is a file named ‘solarisos.raw’. If you want the OS to automatically install when you turn on the synth, then you can keep the text file called ‘doFlash.txt’ and edit it so that the number is 1. Otherwise, I just hold down the Enter button ...

Re: Outs 1/2 bug

Hi Pascal,
Very strange - so, if you re-install v1.3.1, you never have this issue with the outputs?

Re: Announcing another major update to the Solaris Operating System, v1.4.0!

Quick update - There was a small bug when using Compare mode that altered Mod Sources, now fixed in v1.4.0.2, which I’ve just posted. Please install this version if you have v1.4.0 or v1.4.0.1.

Re: Announcing another major update to the Solaris Operating System, v1.4.0!

What he is saying is that any presets created now with v1.4.x will have this new parameter location, so if you get such a preset and are still using v1.3.1 or below, it won’t ‘know’ about the new value, and so any Linear FM will have to be tweaked - again, only if you are using an older OS. Update -...

Re: USB recognition since OS 1.4

I tried it using Windows 10 Home 64 bit with no problem. Will ask Jim to check what else it could be.

Re: Announcing another major update to the Solaris Operating System, v1.4.0!

... I would love to have a software interface that had some patch randomization and genomics like the SoundTower editors for Dave Smith Instruments. But with SYSEX support, it should even be possible to set up a Lemur patch or such on iPad and have the ability to do X-Y pads, touch faders and other...

Re: Modulation Sources List Messed Up in v1.4

Yes, sorry about the confusion. I wanted to differentiate v1.4.0 and the version with the fix, but still didn’t feel it warranted a full bump to v1.4.1. We’d like to wait to see if there are any other significant problems for users before we do that.

Re: Developer Fund

I would love to have both resonator and granular models, and in fact, had planned on a granular type to be added early on, since the coder at Sonic Core had developed a working software plugin for his thesis project. Unfortunately, he left Sonic Core, and so nothing ever progressed with that. When I...

Re: Favorite Reverb

So...I also bought a Strymon BigSky a couple of years ago, but have yet to put it to use. However, at the time, I did contact the head of Strymon to ask off they would license the code or some such arrangement. Unfortunately, I never heard back from them. Since they are using a SHARC chip, I thought...
