I'll be making an announcement once v2.0 is ready. We are still making some last-minute changes....but it will be very soon now.

Fixed a problem in which inserting the CF-card caused a preset to get loaded which would overwrite the e...

Re: Sending midi after touch with Solaris

The Solaris sends a standard MIDI Channel aftertouch. I think you are asking about polyphonic AT, since the Hydrasynth has such a keyboard?
The Solaris can respond to Poly AT, but does not have Poly AT built in to send it.

No problem...and just to mention, it is a 2 dimensional envelope, so each of the eight points have X and Y values. (This is obviously for Prophet VS-type control.)

Jim asked that we hold off until v2.0 is released. My plan now is that I will be asking for a minimum donation for v2.0 OS, with anything additional as you wish.

Re: Developer Fund Update - Important!

ctrlr.org was discussed earlier. I attempted to edit a panel for the Prophet Rev2 (both sysEx as well as NRPN) this very week. I think a panel for the Solaris was possible, but requires some programming knowledge (lua) and is a lot of work. To slice it down, one could first create kind of patch vie...

I was hoping for this week, but there’s still a couple of bugs that need to get sorted out. I’d guess another 3-4 weeks?

Hi Norman,

I assume you are asking about the S/H waveform that is used in the MM1 oscillator and not the LFO waveshape?

Re: AM/Ringmod help

So, there’s a button for each LFO labeled Retrigger. When this is switched On, a note-on event will reset that LFO to the current phase position that is selected. It does not reset for note-offs. On the Solaris, the normal situation (with Retrigger off) is just as the video you linked is showing, an...

Re: Is it possible to create the same sounds as the Waldorf Microwave XT with solaris?

I'm always very careful about any time someone says “Can X sound exactly like Y?”. One thing I’ve learned over all these years is that everyone’s hearing will greatly affect how they perceive sound quality, so this is quite a subjective thing. When the DX7 came out, I sat in Dave Smith’s office, and...
