Re: The oscillator & filter model of ARP Odyssey.

Hi, John. Would you consider adding the oscillator/filter model of ARP Odyssey to Solaris? Both models might be previously developed by Creamware / Sonic Core for the product called as Prodyssey. So, I wonder if you could make use of these resources. I can check it....I'm not sure if there are spec...

Re: Original Solaris Prototype pictures

I used to think that beginning to design simple sounds might be best with two direct accesses to amp and filter env, to quickly test and understand the interactions between the two env. So, you considered having two rows of encoders for the two 'main' env... What made you change your mind? consiste...

I have the original cabinet, of course, but the circuit boards were used for the engineering units. I don’t have those.

Original Solaris Prototype pictures

I came across some of the old Solaris prototype photos, and I thought people might enjoy seeing them! We introduced the Solaris at the Frankfurt Musik Messe at the end of March 2007. The original design features 2 rows of knobs below the Envelope section, so that you could easily adjust filter and a...

This seems like it is functioning backwards. Is this a bug or am I just not understating how it should work?

John, this is a bug, already fixed. 2.0.1 will be released soon!

Re: D50 waves

Chapolin, Thanks for pointing out that I had misnamed the SamplePool. It is required that the name uses 3 digits, not 2! I have revised the zip file now with the correct name. I also realized that I assumed everyone would know to load the samples - this is why there is no sound. I’ve added instructi...

Re: v2.0 OS Released!

I put a sample set of D-50 waves over in the Data Files section: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=17152&p=24035#p24035

I made a quick preset to play 4 of the loops as a 4-part Multi. All of the info is in the post.

D50 waves

Someone sent me a set of samples that look like they match the D-50’s set of waves (plus 4 user waves). I put a quick 4-part Multi preset together to show how you can have four of the rhythmic loops played together, 1 per octave (basically). You will need v2.0 OS installed to play it, of course. The...
