Re: Load SingleCycle Waves?

OK, last post on this topic of samples (for tonight at least), it seems there are SamplePool text files being shared around that have loop points that look a lot more "wrong" to my eyes than having 0 as the loopend. if your Solaris is locking up during the loading of sample files or playing samples ...

Re: Load SingleCycle Waves?

Yes, the error is because the loop start and the loop end points look swapped. The loop start should always be at zero (or near the front of the sample at least), and the loop end point somewhere down the line (at the end I would guess in your case - which is the length of the sample -1).

This gave me an error, which I assumed was due to the filename. I changed it to BinAdd.raw on the CF card and also edited the TXT fi...

Re: utility to create custom samples for Solaris

thanks for the kind words of encouragement - very much appreciated. there is more on the way. we are fortunate to have such an extremely deep synthesis platform in the Solaris - so much to delve into for hours and hours... let's share among ourselves so we can go deeper into our sonic explorations i...

utility to create custom samples for Solaris

is your Solaris hungering for some new samples to play? do you have your own custom sample files that you would like to incorporate into your Solaris sounds? to paraphrase a television commercial i've seen just once or twice, now there is an app for that... the Solaris Sample Pooler is an easy to us...
