Re: Default Velocity Setting

I'd like to add that this feature request is not for my particular needs. I use a template of my own with many other settings pimped to my personal values anyway.

Default Velocity Setting

The default (starting the Solaris without card inserted) is about 40%. It tok me some trial and error to find a better setting. For my taste a setting of 17% is ideal. Though this may depend on personal tastes, I believe that a default setting of 17% was of better use for most users than the current...

Vibrato LFO improvements

Thanks for the plethora of LFOs on the Solaris. The fifth is a dedicated vibrato LFO. Great. With the modulation wheel set to enabled, it only takes effect as soon the modulation wheel is moved. Great. In case one wants to use the LFO for some light vibrato, increased by the modulation wheel, things...

Heretic - Korg Kronos played by Jordan Rudess and Marco Parisi at Messe 2015

Well, it's not a Solaris, but it's of great joy and pleasure to see two pros in action: https://youtu.be/jshQWP0gQ-k I like the hardware of the Solaris. There's no other synth I know of that makes programming that straightforward. I see two minor points of possible improvement: * Rastered encoders. ...

Re: Basic Collection

LongswordScaled.jpg This release is called the Longsword release, named afer one of the presets included. The delta to the last release is 26 presets, starting with preset 93, a pipe organ emulation. Due to the amount of patches I presume I will need to rearrange my preset banks during one of the n...

Re: Solaris VS Jupiter 8 & OB8

OK, found some further use this very eve by accident. * An oscillator is modulated by an LFO. * An envelope's decay is used to control the LFO's rate (fast at key press, then slowly but steadily slowing down). * I'd like to control the time of the decay by some controller. * The Solaris can do this ...

Re: Solaris VS Jupiter 8 & OB8

The question/problem was how to use the LFO output as a controller for envelope values which occur only on key-down events. Obviously, it only makes sense to grab a value from the LFO when the note is played. You can’t continuously modulate any envelope segment once the EG is underway. Is that what...

Re: Solaris VS Jupiter 8 & OB8

For the moment, it's not possible to choose an lfo as a source of modulation for the attacks, decay or release time of the envelopes.
John, it would be really nice !
The same here. The modulation capabilities for the envelopes are limited (though the essentials are provided).

Re: Range of the AT+MW controller

For my personal use it's not an issue, since I seldom use aftertouch. I was confused anyway :) .

Range of the AT+MW controller

Hi all, attached is a preset which allows the player to control the oscillator's pitch using either the modulation wheel or aftertouch. I wonder, though, why the range (respectively maximum value) of both differ. Moving the modulation wheel to its maximum position provides the desired result. Tortur...

Re: Basic Collection

Saturninus_vignay.jpg The collection has grown. The delta to the last release is about 30 presets, found above preset 60, which is an addition of about 50%. This release is called the Saturninus release, since saturated filters played a major role while programming some of the new presets. The Sola...

Counting Sheep

The forum is quiet these days. I presume it's uneasy silence while waiting for a new OS being published :) . For the meantime, here's a simple patch named »CountingSheep.zip«. It recreates a very basic Shepard-Risset-Glissando. »Shepard.zip« provides an audio demo file (in ogg-vorbis format). I've a...

Re: Scale tuning on the Solaris

I cannot really judge whether the key tables would solve your problem, since I never did it for myself. No clue whether the 0-100% range provides enough resolution for your purpose. Even it it did, it would require some manual work initially, since it has to be adjusted for each individual key, and ...

I presume key tables should do the trick.
