Here's the info: Custom padded bag for SOLARIS John Bowen Design: - dual-layer soft-padded material; - super...

Re: Seaboard, actually pretty good

Steve, What you will have to do is re-program the sound you like to have Poly AT, since it’s not standard on the Solaris keyboard itself, and nothing in the factory preset sounds has been prepared using Poly AT. It will be a lot of work that way, but, for the moment, that’s the reality of it. You ca...

Re: error loading preset

OK, so current situation is v1.4.2 OS needs a ‘placeholder’ preset there for you to write over. If you see the INIT Bank I include in the Factory set, all 128 positions are filled as INIT presets. What I suggest you do is copy presets 9 through 127 from the INIT Bank into your BANK11 folder, and the...

Re: Envelope Amount and Pitch Offset per Voice

Version 1.4.2 of the OS does provide for a random tuning offset per voice. It is ‘hardwired’ to the pitch signal, and is not available as a mod source at this time (to be used to offset the EG Amount to the filter, for example). In the future I would like to have this as a general Mod Source, which ...

Re: Developer Fund

At the moment, Hrast is investigating some of the initial items on the Request List. Once we determine just what we can offer in an initial upgrade pack, we can figure out an offer.

Re: Key tables ? I am baffled

Hi Steve, It’s pretty difficult to make a precise Key Table to do what you want - what we really need to do is add some proper key mapping on a per key basis, and/or add the ability to use tuning tables (such as Scala format). I know Robert Rich has been after me to get this done for years, but the ...

Re: synchronization with rme ucx

I believe it’s implemented. Best to ask those on the forum who are using the SPDIF In/Out what they are doing.

Anyone?

Re: synchronization with rme ucx

Hey guys... 3. The manual says that the Solaris runs on 48kHz as Master and on 96kHz as Slave ... Unfortunately, the manual is not correct on this. Originally I though it was the case, so I communicated this to Brent. The chip that handles the SPDIF will only output at 48 kHz - if it receives a clo...

Re: My robot needs the moon - new composition

Cedric,

Wow!! Just....wow!

That was wonderful to watch! Thanks so much for posting (and I’m sure many here will want to know what Solaris sounds were used).

Congrats,
