Re: New carrying case for your Solaris

Does it protect the joystick? I have a soft case for the Solaris but am permanently worried about the joystick and have tried to find a way to protect it. My latest idea (which I have yet to implement) is to have a plastic cup of sorts and try to fix that to the unit with a strap. A hard case is for...

Re: Auto sensing pedal input

What I am aiming at is polarity but I suppose it would be cool if it could tell the type as well... Precognition, sort of... :D

I just read up on the Virus and it turns out that it senses polarity at power on. How? I have no idea, I'm afraid.

Auto sensing pedal input

I just read about the Access Virus and that it sports auto sense pedal input so "you don't have to worry about configuration when you need to borrow a pedal in a hurry." Be that as it may, it is still a nice feature and something I have fiddled with too many times already. So the question is how har...

I like the green! It definitely makes this site unique. Keep it, I say.

Re: Announce when you receive your Solaris!

Mine came today, Nov 7, 2016. I am overwhelmed. There are so many things I don't get about this instrument (like almost everything). I have a ton of super noob questions and am afraid to post them as people online are not always kind or even polite. That might be true in other parts of the internet...

Re: A way to see destination routing

I agree that it would be good not to have a button pressed all the time but have it toggle. One way to solve the lack of LED on the shift button could be to add a shift indicator to the main screen somehow. If it was conspicuous enough, that should do the trick. My reasoning is that GUI wise would t...

Re: Bank encoder interferes with MIDI clock

The other day I stumbled over a (probably) related problem: when running the Solaris with an external sequencer (in my case a Schrittmacher) I can fiddle with the controls on the front panel, as long as I stay off the ones round the main screen. If I do anything that has anything with the patches to...

If you own a Solaris, you are eligible to access to a closed off part of the forum, just for owners. That is where you typically would find patches and such-likes.

Re: Still thrilled and learning after two years with Solaris

Well written indeed. One thing in particular really caught my eye though. 6) I put it in Omni mode and play it from a Roli Seaboard with full Poly-AT control. This is the kind of expression that synths were made for. Just gorgeous. Please tell me more about this. I am very close to pulling the trigg...

Always late to the party but a very happy birthday from me as well! (If you are in PST, I guess that this posting will make it before midnight. :D )

Re: OS updates, bugfixes & feats

It is a bit rough to describe the Solaris as "a prototype"; that stage would have been while it was being developed on the Scope platform.

Nice review on Gearslutz

I am sorry if this is old hat; I tried to search the forum but since that came up with nil I took the plunge and posted this. Here is a very nice review from a chap on Gearslutz that is well worth reading. Not only is it well written and well researched, is is also very concise and to the point. Sin...

Re: While waiting for my Solaris...

I decided to make the source available. You can find it at: https://bitbucket.org/JimHewes/solarium Great news! I have started on the port to Mac but ran into problems with the compiler. If someone else is on Mac and have Xcode I'd be more than happy to get some help as my C++ fu is rather weak. K
