Re: OLED text displays

I would be in although this sounds very expensive - a significant chunk of the original price of the synth.
OLED is still relatively new - maybe give it another year or two and these parts could drop to half the current price as production ramps up ?

Re: random all parameters

Full randomness on all parameters might be unusable 90% of the time ;) But hey ... Reminds me of a feature I love on the Virus TI : you can "lock" a parameter (or maybe group of parameters, can't recall) to its current value, so that it doesn't change even when browsing through presets. Creates inte...

Re: would you be interested in SOLARIS editor ?

Well that was quick... I had some issues with Projucer (latest version 5) but eventually managed to export to XCode, here's what happens : First, dozens of these errors : https://i.imgur.com/Bwv38le.png And then a lone one : " 'auto' not allowed in lambda parameter " on line 1861 of ParameterList.cp...

Re: Fast & Simple & Easy Sample Loading

I agree that this would be a great addition. As I've just said elsewhere, given the outstanding sound engine we already have, I value this kind of usability features at least as highly as new sonic possibilities.

Re: Developer Fund

I'm also ready to contribute my $200. I understand that the purpose of this is primarily to fund a DSP developer. Maybe I'll be a slightly different voice here, but as far as I'm concerned the Solaris is already so deep in terms of sound design that multitimbrality / a split keyboard performance mod...

Re: more powerful output routing

I would be surprised if this were even possible. The Solaris is a digital synth, its LFOs and envelopes are not an analog electrical signal you could patch in and out like in a modular synth, they are software functions that shape the output from previous functions (oscillators etc), the result even...

Jim, you're awesome !

John, glad to see you've apparently been able to sort source code / IP issues with Sonic Core.

Re: Crazy Ribbon : pitch going up 3-4 octaves after a few seconds

Hmmm, it could be a contact problem inside the ribbon, but I think first be careful on doing the calibration routine. If you press the keypad 1-8-3 simultaneously, you get the self-test menu. You will see the list of choices, and you want to pick #3 Ribbon. It will say to touch the rightmost positi...

Crazy Ribbon : pitch going up 3-4 octaves after a few seconds

After a few busy months, I came back to my Solaris tonight and I'm faced with worrying behavior: After about 10 seconds, pitch suddenly jumps up 3-4 octaves (a C2 quite consistently becomes an A5), and I need to touch the ribbon controller (anywhere) to put it back into place. Then a dozen seconds l...

Re: While waiting for my Solaris...

AFAIK the free version of JUCE is GPL only, i.e. you also need to release any code under the GPL too. http://www.juce.com/get-juce I think you are right and I think I’ve misunderstood the license. I’m going to have to remove it, at least for the time being. I’m very sorry about that. :( The GPL doe...

Re: While waiting for my Solaris...

What language did you do this in? Do you think it would be feasible to port it to Mac? Since you explicitly state that you do not have a Mac the question is probably moot but it had to be asked... :D It's written in C++ and uses the JUCE cross-platform GUI library so it should port to Mac. I suppos...

Re: New version of the OS ? Soon or not ?

OpenSource is not a silver bullet - it only works when there is enough momentum and general interest. Having just a few hundred users, out of which only a handful are programmers, would make the whole thing moot. Open Source doesn't imply free of charge and amateur/volunteer programmers. It's about...

Re: would you be interested in SOLARIS editor ?

Another +1 for Ctrlr, because it's easier not to reinvent the wheel, but above all because it's Mac / Windows / Linux !
