Re: New Black Octopus presets

Thanks for the compliments! I am glad you learned more about the Solaris - I learned a ton while making the presets and still feel like I have much left to learn!

Re: Event Horizon (128 patches for the Solaris)

*** Important Update ***

John has kindly pointed out that I had the formatting a bit wrong in the download. Therefore some of the patches might not have been loading completely. I have updated the file above and would recommend re-downloading the file.

these definitely look helpful - I would also like to know if you have any plans for a windows version.

Thanks!

Event Horizon (128 patches for the Solaris)

Demo: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LUW5LRfzgvE I've had a lot of fun the last few months learning the Solaris and creating patches. I still feel like there is a lot to learn but in the meantime here are 128 patches I have created for the beast. Rather than charge for the set I decided to offer it ...

Re: 4 Solaris Sounds

Hi,

I used ValhallaRoom for the reverbs - works very nice with Solaris and a great price at $50.

Re: My feature requests

Thanks John - it's working now - thought I had all these settings correct before but I must not have had something right.

Re: My feature requests

7) Glide type - I seem to be missing a specific type of glide. I want to hold down a note and then have it slide to another pressed note (similar to having it set to mono / legato) however when I press a new note I want there to be no portamento slide. I want the slide to only be active on the secon...

My feature requests

It is of course human nature to always want more so here is my wishlist :mrgreen: 1) Unison spread - a way to spread out the panning of the unison voices to create some really fat sounds. 2) Improved FX section - more distortion types, r...
