Re: Solaris preset management

Beginning with version 1.4.2 bank numbers no longer need to be consecutive. You can skip bank numbers. And they don't need to start at zero.

Re: Global LFO

Since the voices are handled by separate DSPs which don't communicate with each other, I don't think the LFOs could be synced in a sample-accurate way. The LFOs are retriggered only when a note is played. So the only way I could do a kind of pseudo-sync in code is to play 10 short notes with re-trig...

Re: Envelope release time

Also note that if the slope is set to 127 (exponential) the time will seem shorter. Try setting it to 0 (linear).

Re: would you be interested in SOLARIS editor ?

At the time I didn't want to implement the file saving because I wasn't totally sure about the format of preset files. Since then, I just haven't updated it because I've been busy working on other things. The only changes I've made have been to keep up-to-date with the Solaris OS versions.

Re: USB freeze Nuendo on init

I don’t have Nuendo to test with but I did try with Cubase 10 and didn’t see a problem. You might try to disable plugins and see if that makes a difference. Without knowing what data is being sent it’s hard to know what is causing the freeze. So if you have any way to capture the data as John said i...

Re: MIDI Thru from USB?

No. Actually, MIDI thru is not accessible by the internal software. MIDI thru is just a direct electrical connection to the MIDI in connector.

Re: Univoice

Yes, I could have been a little more clear. I meant it would be the same as Unison being off.

Re: Univoice

The UniVoice parameter is the number of voices applied to each note. So UniVoice less than 2 (i.e. UniVoice 1) would just be the same as UniVoice being off. One voice for each note. I can't think of any reason why you should not see any difference when you change the UniTune parameter except that wh...

Re: Automating the Solaris using cubase?

With poly pressure, you have 127 X 127 parameters ! But on 8 bit = 127 resolution points. But with a smooth feature, or lag or slew limiter, whatever, the result is perfect and poly pressure is as easy to use as midi cc. I was just glancing at the manual for Virus C in the appendix. That's the only...

Re: Automating the Solaris using cubase?

I was one who lobbied for SysEx as opposed to NRPN. Solaris has a lot of parameters and if you look at other keyboards that have a lot of parameters such as Kronos and Motif/Montage they also use SysEx and do not use NRPN. At least you have to use SysEx for transferring entire presets because it’s i...

Re: It's arrived !

Hi JoPo, For the vocal filter, make sure you have set the five vowel parameters to different vowel sounds. (Third page of filter menu) The XFade parameter is supposed to fade between those five vowel sounds. But if they are all set to the same vowel then XFade will have no effect. Regarding the Samp...

Re: Reset controllers

This seems less likely to be a software bug. Perhaps John can comment on it, though he may be currently busy with round 7.

Re: Reset controllers

The MIDI reset controller message does not reset the calibration data. It's just a way to reset controllers to zero when they have been adjusted by a DAW or another synth. For example, if you're playing back a MIDI recording and you stop it when the mod wheel is at some high value and rewind to star...

Re: Reset controllers

I was not able to reproduce the inverse problem. Make sure modulation amount is set to a positive value. Or possibly start with an INIT preset to make sure there's no unusual settings. At the moment I can't think of anything else that might affect it. Yes, the calibration procedure in the manual see...

Re: New OS Update - v1.4.3

Hopefully you don’t mind if I throw in a couple more details. Sample pool loading: The function of the “LoadSmp” parameter in the System page changed since the previous version. Previously, if enabled, it would automatically load the first sample pool right after the Solaris booted up. But it doesn’...
