Re: Global LFO

Thanks John. I was wondering if this might be in the code under Jim's control. Let me know what if anything that Jim could do for this. A future wish list for this would be: - LFO options for free running (today's functionality) or all voices being linked for that lfo - EG and Loop EG options to ope...

Global LFO

Hi all, Is there a way to have a global lfo feature on the Solaris where the lfo’s are in sync in phase and depth? Each modulation source seems to be per voice (which is great for Poly AT and other evolving sounds), but I am trying to emulate the single lfo’s on older poly synths. You can sort of em...

Re: New OS Update - 1.4.4

Thanks for another great update Jim & John!

I've been busy refurbishing an OBX that I bought late last year and am just getting back to my Solaris. It's great to see the ongoing support for this great synth!

Re: Way to reduce the pitch mod lower than 0.10?

Hi - I agree - the .10 is not granular enough. Especially when I try to emulate something like the tight phasing of Mini Moog oscillators. What I have done in those situations is I send the MAXVAL to a mixer and use the mixer to modulate the pitch of the oscillator. You can reduce the the amount in ...

Re: Patch Master Volume Issues

Quick Update - I think I solved it! I had a flaky expression pedal plugged into the Solaris. When the floor was jostled (footsteps / heavy playing), the pedal would jump and send a low value to the Solaris. When I played a patch that has the expression pedal set to Expr - the Master Volume knob only...

Re: Patch Master Volume Issues

John - I just tried to calibrate the volume knob and it did not help. This was also happening when receiving CC#7 remotely.

For a test, I went back to OS 1.3 and it worked fine there.

I re-flashed 1.4.2 - and now it works fine again. I'm not sure what was happening...

Patch Master Volume Issues

Hi All, I am having an issue with Master Volume between patches. When I switch between patches, output volume of the Solaris remains constant. On certain patches, when I touch the Master Volume, the volume falls dramatically, and I can not get it back to the previous volume. To regain the volume on ...

Re: Developer Fund

An entry that could be added in Assign menus that would do « clean the mess then defragmentation / more « During preset creation / modification there are plenty of what I call deadends : the most simple of all is an oscillator turned on that doesn’t go into a mixer and in the end doesn’t participat...

Re: Developer Fund

As an addition to my previous post and after reading some of the comments from others - I would be willing to pay more - even $500 to get this started. A couple of additions to my previous requests: - all DSP bugs fixed - more modulation options for the VCA - more envelope modulation sources I think...

Re: Developer Fund

Hi John, I would like to again thank Jim for everything that he has done with his work on the Solaris. His efforts made an already great synth even greater. I really am enjoying the new functionality. I would be willing to pay $200 or more to get this going. I may be in the minority of wanting the S...
