Re: New Preset Bank by Brian Kehew

Very cool presets! They really show the power of the Solaris modulation capabilities.

Thank you Brian for this effort and thank you John for bringing these to us!

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...

Re: Not transmitting MIDI?

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

Re: Assign 1 & 2 LED status on Preset select

Agreed.

As an additional thought - you may want to also add extra "blank" parameter fields to the file format for future expansion. You could possibly use these for future parameters without having to change the file format.

Re: Assign 1 & 2 LED status on Preset select

As I think about it -what should the functionality be? If you have an Assign button LED on and change patches - should the patch read the switch status and act accordingly? Or - should the patch save the Assign status and turn the Assign LED on/off as you select the patch...
