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. :(

Re: While waiting for my Solaris...

It’s not even at the stage to commit to anything. But I at least know that taking money for it would require a commercial license for the JUCE library and that’s a losing proposition.

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: While waiting for my Solaris...

I thought I would make this program available because people might at least have some fun with it as it is. Anyway, it’s free so you have nothing to lose. I named it Solarium (because I’ve never been that great at thinking up names for applications :) ). You should be able to download it here: Solar...

Re: Patch data over MIDI

Just a few extra notes I had related to the NRPN list: Master0PitchWheelRange1 – 5: Pitch range UP. None0 – 8: Mod Wheel on/off None0 – 9: Mod Wheel max LFO1Frequency0 – 138: This is called “Rate” on the Solaris UI. Osc1ModCMix1 – 268: Control Strength. Same for all other instances of “CMix” Osc1Mod...
