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...

Re: control change

I wonder if there’s a way we can modify the code so that one of the Performance knobs could be assigned to any CC? I will discuss with Jim. +1 for this. I would like the Performance knobs to be able to transmit / receive a CC. Also would like to see (probably more difficult) the performance knobs a...

Hi - check the MidiCtrl setting - make sure it is set to 'on". This is in the midi menu.
