Re: USB recognition since OS 1.4

Hi pinmusica, In the Solaris, go to the MIDI page and make sure that MIDICtrl is On. With the Solaris USB cable plugged in, do you see John Bowen Solaris Synthesizer in Device Manager? It should be in the section called Sound, video, and game controllers. If it is there, does it have an error? What ...

Re: Patch Master Volume Issues

This sort of thing drove me nuts more than once also. I couldn't figure out why the volume was so low. I eventually realized it was the expression pedal at a low position.

Re: Developer Fund

Just to explain my thinking...because I believe someone else was also not liking the wires too. The intention was to show things graphically rather than by text. I thing it's easier and faster to get a sense of how a preset is set up by seeing graphic connections. Looking at text requires a differen...

Re: Empty patch in bank 10 freezes Solaris

Thanks for the video. I've tried this using versions 1.4.0 and also 1.4.0.2 and I'm not yet able to reproduce it. Does it happen no matter which non-empty patch you try to load?

How about anyone else? Can you reproduce it?

Re: S/P-DIF 96K NOT WORKING

Even though the Solaris runs at 96KHz internally the digital interface only runs at 48KHz. So that's working as expected.

Re: Outs 1/2 bug

I'd also like to know if anyone else experiences this. If it happens again, try to adjust the panning and see if that has any effect. Bypass all FX of course. Try adjusting the Out-1/2 parameter. In short, is there anything you can do by the front panel to bring Out 2 back? If you continue to have t...

Re: Announcing another major update to the Solaris Operating System, v1.4.0!

John is right. The only time you need to care is if you are using an old (1.3.1 or older) OS to load a preset that was saved with 1.4.0. And then only if an oscillator was using LinFM as a modulation destination. You probably noticed in earlier OS versions that the amount for Shape and LinFM were "l...

Re: Outs 1/2 bug

There is a known bug in version 1.4.0.1 in which using the Compare function may mess up the modulation sources in a preset. It's possible that you've hit Compare and that changed the modulation source for pan in a VCA. If this is what's happening, please avoid using Compare for the time being. If yo...

Re: Announcing another major update to the Solaris Operating System, v1.4.0!

My apologies for the bug in the initial release that had to be pulled back. I missed it. It wasn't something that could be left in and fixed later. At least it's out for the holiday break. :)

Re: Modulation Sources List Messed Up in v1.4

Yes, this is fixed. John decided to call it 1.4.0.1 instead of 1.4.1.

Re: would you be interested in SOLARIS editor ?

Yeah, I just removed it for a couple reasons. One is that it had a virus. (I got a better virus checker now) Also, Solaris 1.4.0 was found to have bug that we couldn't leave there so that got pulled down for the time being. So no sense in putting Solarium 0.11 back yet. Sorry and hopefully all will ...

Re: rnd tune no effect on a preset

Keep in mind that there is a global RndTune in the System section and also a per-preset RndTune in the Home section. If the per-preset is set to a value, that's the value that takes precedence. If the per-preset value is set to Global, then the current global value is used. If you have been trying t...

Re: would you be interested in SOLARIS editor ?

reno, I sent you a PM. Also, try to use a recent compiler version. I tend to use some newer features from C++11 and C++14 standards. (already three years old now!) Yesterday I updated Solarium to v0.11 to work with Solaris 1.4.0 system exclusive. So you'll want to get that newer code now. Although t...
