While this forum is focused on the Solaris and it's features, John has a wealth of history in synth design, both hardware and software, unfortunately many folks in the synth world weren't exposed to his software instruments because they were designed to be used in the Scope platform, therefore, they...

Hello Richard, welcome to the forum. :) For those of us who have preordered Solaris it has been an interesting journey as we watched Solaris go from a prototype to the Limited Edition production model as shown recently at NAMM 09. The main interest for me in purchasing Solaris is because of it's ama...

Hi all, now that the Virus TI|2 hasn't met my expectations aesthetically (also, how many times are they going to repackage the same synthesizer???), I can safely look back to the Solaris again. Does anyone have any real photos of the finished product? Regards, Yannis TFOLove, Carbon111 was at John'...

John, Finally, I vaguely recall a discussion here about Hard vs. Soft sync ( like on the AX-80 et al.) I couldn't remember if you had said that you would try to include that as well. Happy holidays to everyone here......Ron I believe the discussion you refer to is on page 3 of the audio examples th...

Jimmy if Yamaha, Roland or Korg come anywhere near John or the Solaris I will personally send out my brigade of seamonkeys to thwart their attempts to overtake the world with sampled pianos, drumkits and arpeggiated dance music studio in a box faux synthesizers!! :twisted: Seamonkey, at last year's...

Ahhh this talk of guitar feedback and Tedly Nugent reminds of one of the greatest feedback riffs in musical history and that is the guitar feedback in Journey to the Center of my Mind by the Amboy Dukes (Ted Nugent era). :D

Hey jimmy thanks for whetting our appetite for Solaris with this demo but I hate to think you might've set your keyboard on fire afterwards! :lol:

Hard to believe it's getting to be that time again already. I'm sure it will be nice for you to have a finished product to show this year instead of one in the pre-production stage. I wouldn't be surprised if you get a lot more orders this time. Jimmy if Yamaha, Roland or Korg come anywhere near Joh...
