Re: would you be interested in SOLARIS editor ?

Very cool app - thanks for taking the time to write that. My dream would be to one day have a VST app like that which would also allow patch switching and real time editing of parameters. Not sure what you mean by real time editing. It already does follow changes that you make on the Solaris. But m...

Re: would you be interested in SOLARIS editor ?

Since you bumped....I’m still continuing to work on this editor hoping the Solaris’s MIDI implementation gets finished. I thought about making it better looking with maybe a more traditional, modular look. Though Solaris has a lot of parameters and connections so it’s hard to fit. Be glad to discuss...

Re: Inappropriate voice stealing.

I was using the ver 1.2.11 you sent out to those with detented encoders. It only happens in that version. I just tried earlier versions and it doesn't happen in those. So I guess it's not the same bug as this thread.

Re: Inappropriate voice stealing.

I was about to post a possible bug, but searching through the previous reports I found this one which sounds the same as I encountered. It's reproducible. 1. Turn on the Solaris. 2. Switch to preset 3.23 called "KA JUMP" (Assuming you still have the original presets in there) 3. Play a few chords, s...

Re: Automating the Solaris using cubase?

I think perhaps the Solaris should drop NRPN and use SysEx instead. That way the larger values can be represented. This is what the Korg Kronos does. When you change individual parameters on the Kronos it sends out a four-byte value (so the whole message is 14 bytes). Then the Solaris could define a...

Re: While waiting for my Solaris...

The USB connection is faster than MIDI and it does work. But I’ve found the connection to be a bit flakey sometimes. So I tend to use MIDI. Yes, it’s kind of slow because it’s transferring around a thousand parameters one at a time. It would be faster with a bulk dump that economized on parameter si...

Sample pool manager

Last summer I worked on this program for managing sample pool files called Solsa. But I put it on the back burner because at the time I couldn’t seem to get samples to work right for me on the Solaris. Anyway, I thought I would throw the source code out there since I had already done that with Solar...

Re: While waiting for my Solaris...

It should be fixed now. Please download it again and try.
It was just a case of the program not working if the configuration file was missing, which is the case the first time you run it!

Re: While waiting for my Solaris...

I've updated it so you can now load from a preset file. (But no saving to a file yet.) Btw, I was able to compile with the Clang compiler in Visual Studio. But that uses the VS backend so it doesn’t prove that the full build works on Mac. I don’t mean to spam this part of the forum with too much tal...

Re: While waiting for my Solaris...

I decided to make the source available. You can find it at: https://bitbucket.org/JimHewes/solarium I know Git and GitHub are very popular. But I started using Mercurial years ago because it supported all platforms more equally (particularly good for Windows users) and it's pretty easy to use. So th...

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. :(
