Re: would you be interested in SOLARIS editor ?

I hate to hijack this thread since it’s not my thread, but I’ll be brief. Just to be clear, it’s version zero-point-ten. Not zero-point-one. The reason it’s not 1.0 is because it’s not at some point I could call finished due to the incomplete MIDI support of the Solaris. Sorry if you don’t like wire...

Re: would you be interested in SOLARIS editor ?

I happen to be using an older version of JUCE version 4.3.1 and the reason is I believe newer versions will cause the app to put up a splash screen and I didn't want that. I'm not sure but I thought that's what I read somewhere. You're probably going to need some proficiency in programming and figur...

Re: Developer Fund

My Solarium editor already does this. It starts at the output and traces backwards to find all modules that are participating in making the sound and it only displays those. And you can click on Enable Part buttons to see which modules participate in each part. It's particularly useful for quickly s...

does Solaris really need that many bits to represent time or is it doing a non-linear mapping? I had always assumed the latter since you can't specific 19.995ms from the front panel (that I could see).
Perhaps it could have been non-linear in some way. But it wasn't from the beginning.

Re: Screen display

I can see the point. So using the controls around the text displays would not bump you into edit mode. And you may not need a performance knob if you can just control a parameter directly. The tradeoff is that in order to get to edit mode you have to either press the Preset button or else one of the...

Re: control change

There are a couple of issues with using the performance knobs for this purpose. A performance knob and a CC controller are two different things. They are different functions and have different ranges for both the target and the value. A performance knob value has a range of -100% to +100% while a CC...

Re: control change

Hmmm, this is the controller for Expression. I'm not sure if, when using an Expression pedal with the Solaris, it sends out the same info - will have to check. What Solaris calls the expression pedal actually sends out CC4 which is Foot Controller. Maybe we could think about a special Midi mode Pre...

Re: Jog Wheel not working since OS upgrade

Can you revert back to your previous version to see if the wheel starts working again? What was your previous version number?
If that works, try updating to 1.3.1 again---perhaps something happened during the first update process.

Re: Arp not clocking/triggering correct.

Looking at this a little closer it looks like a bug. :( So far don't think there's a workaround for it. It will have to be fixed in later version.

Re: Arp not clocking/triggering correct.

I think I understand now and I might know what's going on. The Solaris arpeggiator always plays the first note immediately upon the first keypress instead of waiting for the next clock. The reason for doing that is because the timing feels more natural to the user pressing the keys. So if the chord ...

Re: Arp not clocking/triggering correct.

I don't understand your explanation and I'm not sure what you're trying to accomplish. The cirklon is sending out notes of its sequence to the Solaris, but then you also have the Solaris arp turned on, is that right? When the Solaris arp is on, notes received are not really notes but are controls th...

Re: v1.3.1 OS Upgrade released!

The RndTune setting on Home page 3/4 is the preset level setting. When this is set to "Global" it means that the preset defers to whatever the global setting is. The global setting is on System page 1/1. So the global setting doesn't override the preset setting. (And no, the setting on the Home page...

Re: v1.3.1 OS Upgrade released!

I don't have a definite solution for you. But I wanted to suggest trying to update to version 1.3.0 and see if that's any different. If you've updated the firmware before then I'd hate to point out the simple things because you probably already know. But when using the method of modifying the doFlas...

Re: Assign 1 & 2 LED status on Preset select

Yes, that's the question. Say that the Assign1 function is set to GlideAll. Then I can go in to the individual oscillators and turn the Glide off (on one of them, or all of them) with the Assign1 still on. Then save the preset. What does that mean? Or, what if the Assign1 function is set to ArpTrans...
