Re: other Solaris hardware ideas

Please contact Sonic Core directly for more information on the Solaris rack: info@soniccore.com Thx,- I´ve sent a request and hope for something insightful also for the question if we can expect some SCOPE controller device for the SCOPE platform to control the 1HU "blackbox". I´d been not happy w/...

Re: Zarg updates

As far as I understand it, there are no updates I can do for my Scope plug-ins. What exactly did you have in mind? No new features, but maybe there are chances optimizing the code. I´m not the only one and unfortunately cannot find the thread where it started to be discussed a few days before,- but...

Re: other Solaris hardware ideas

1) A keyboard less “expander” type, a la the Oberheim Expander. Complete front panel with all displays, but probably without wheels, joystick, ribbon, and obviously, keyboard. Cool idea ( I own a Oberheim Xpander),- but probably nearly as expensive as the keyboard version. 2) A small 1 u rack idea,...

Re: Solaris Vrs. 5.0.8 BETA

I would definitely ask for keys to run on your Scope cards. You may not get any more polyphony, however. Thx, yes, I don´t expect more polyphony on a single Pro card but better overall operation. With the Scope/XITE systems, you have code that is running on the dsps, and code that is managed by the...

Re: Solaris Vrs. 5.0.8 BETA

Hello Hein, Yes, this is a known problem by Sonic Core - the numerous connections that I use in my bigger plugins (for all of the various modulation paths, etc.) is too much for the XITE system to properly handle. It's something we discussed back when the XITE was first released, but unfortunately,...

Re: Solaris Vrs. 5.0.8 BETA

Sonic Core told me that you no longer need the VxD files, and that the error, if it continues to pop up, really doesn't cause any problems, and that users should just ignore it. Perhaps Gary B. could add something more to the discussion - on my part, I don't know why the Solaris would be generating...

Re: Doppler Train

Killer !
I hear some kind of "Jan Hammer´s - The 1st 7 days" tubular bell tones beginning @ 0:34, formerly done w/ Rhodes and Bode Frequency Shifter.
Pretty authentic !
Nice textures too ...

Re: development outside

As for the Multitimbre and voice allocation - I discuss our plans for multi timbre function somewhere else on this forum, so I won't repeat myself here, but you will basically have some user selected voice allocation for each of the 4 parts. Talking multi timbrality and voice allocation,- does that...
