SOLARIS 5 FORMANT FILTERS

Well Here I Go Again, The new Formant Filters have been overlooked as I was in my quest for authentic analog performance features and sounds. I have been extremely sucessful in my first endeavor. The addition of the RDX External Oscillators is just too much fun, and having the extra Oscillators wide...

Day-ammn !! The RDX 2 CEM's seem to have much more volume than the other CEM's . I always compensated by using the distortion to add more volume. I think I found a new place to make presets. BTW, how many parameters are there now in Solaris? I have had this for a couple of years now and still keep f...

This is the perfect place, Great.

I have made some really neat stuff in SpaceF's MS, and Prowave using the Waldorf Pair II's.

I can only imagine the stuff in Solaris. :lol:

Thanks Chief,

Solaris W/ External Oscillators

Dear Brotha' Man John Bowen, As you know I always loved Solaris for it's sonic possibilites, but preffered ProWave for my live performances for it's faster loading of presets, due to a few hundred less parameters. But lately w/ the news of the XITE-1 this seems to be a non issue. I absolutely love t...

As long as John Bowen lives, the synth will be upgraded.

Even if he goes blind I am sure he will learn Brail and continue development.

That is a great idea though Brotha' Man Stardust. 8)

That Great News Guys, Since I will reside in heaven when that day comes this summer, I am going to sell all of my clothes too. :roll: QWave has some serious sonic possibilities. Keeping John Bowen busy is great for all of us. I am as excited now, as I was when I got the Oberheim Matrix 12 and XPande...

Check back again, I will be doing the poly synth stuff this weekend.

V5 is a great upgrade, which is nothing new if you know JB.

I heard he quit school in third grade because they had recess, and he don't play......... :lol:

Ankyu................Ankyu..........................Please stay seated.

One thing is certain.

QWave was made for the XITE-1.

I always loved that synth but it was incredibly DSP hungry, so it sat around just begging for more chips.

I doubt I will be swimming much this summer, and if I do my rig will be at the waters edge. :D

This video is proof of why I agreed to sell my Oberheims. You have hit a Grand Slam in the 12th inning John !! You have suceeded in bringing a synth that is light years ahead of anything I currently own. It has the immediate hands on control that a live synth requires and the sounds are impressive. ...

Prowave 1.2

Of course a mention of this awesome synth must be made. This is a great live synth, as it has all of the quality Filters and Oscillators for that great sound, but due to it's design and ease of use, it is great for live work as it's presets load much faster than Q and Solaris. Since we will be seein...

This is true. And just as important is the analog behavior of the separate Oscillator glide adjustments. They work in conjunction with each other to mimic the old monophonic synthesizers more realistically. In the days of giant analog gear occupying vast amounts of stage space having a synth sustain...

:wink: It's one heck of an upgrade, jump in for the big win. It is now possible to emulate a mopnophonic analog for leads. Solaris always could play monophonically, but free running envelopes and separate Oscillator glide are serious weapons to have in your arsenal. I am surprised at how analog this...
