Thx,- I´ve sent a request and hope for something insightful also for the question if we can expect some SCOPE controller device for the SCOPE platform to control the 1HU "blackbox".

I´d been not happy w/ some iPad or smartphone controller-app solution at all.

Hi John,

I wish I came onto the forums more often, but live gets in the way. I noticed you're looking for some feedback on the Solaris expansion project. I would be interested in an internal upgrade if possible, or a 1U rack unit controlled by the Solaris Keyboard Synthesizer and as you said mixed externally to increase the polyphony.
I do wonder if an internal upgrade, either an addition, or replacement would be better since it may allow the OS to include features currently not supported by the existing ICs, or is it just pure processing power that is limiting features/polyphony at this moment?
If you need some help in design, I'll be happy to do layout for you the PCB in exchange for the product, only one unit. Let me know how many layers, speed of the devices and all the other details, and I'll design you a board your design engineer would like, all length matched to a mil. I'm doing high speed data products at 28.5 GHz so signal integrity is my life or death.
If you are already progressing with a project, I would like to participate and put a deposit. Please let me know if this still is the option, and what the product would be. Good to hear from you as always.
Best,
Christian
