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 full preset SysEx message as well that conserved the size so that sending presets over traditional MIDI didn't take so long.

Combining 2 NRPN gives you 14 bits and easier editing. Please no Sysex for the most important parameters...

That's great news JB.
I won't chance that for gigs but certainly would love to have fun trying it out at home.

And thanks again for such a roadworthy great live axe.

Solaris digital out to the XITE-1 Digital in, then XLR Out to FOH is so powerful.
Using dual 18"s and 2 x 3 way QSC KW153s in stereo is awesome.
Pannings on Solaris are as wise as an old Fender Rhodes Satellite.

Best synth I've ever used live.
Best synth I've ever owned.. :wink:
