Re: D50 waves

John, thank you for sharing these samples! On my Solaris I have some strange behaviour when I save a sound using these samples to CF card, and loading it back again from CF card into the memory. The selected sample can be altered after re-loading the sound, depending on what sample I select. If the ...

V 2.0 strange behaviour when changing voice count

When you change the voice count of a part while editing the sound, it happens that not all voices sound the same. Simple example: - set up an init sound in one part with EG6 attack = 0s, release = 0.5s - set the voice count in that part to 2 - change attack to 5s, release to 5s - play some notes, yo...

V 2.0 EgReset in Poly Mode

It seems that the EgReset behaviour in play mode = "poly" is just the opposite as shown on the screen. When you select "shutdown", the EGs are actually in running mode, when you select "running" they are in "shutdown" mode. This seems to be the case for all th...

Re: OS2 :: Volume of parts in Multi not affecting vca ...

I can confirm this bevaviour. Here are some easy steps to demonstrate it: - Setup an init sound with one part (Osc1 - Mixer1 - Filter1 - VCA1); set VCA1 volume to 100% - Modify the part volume on multi page 1, the volume changes as expected - Now set VCA1 volume to zero, VCA1 modulation source to e....

Re: Developer Fund Update - Important!

What about the current (faithful) Solaris owners: is there an updated ETA for OS 2.0 - and what exactly are the conditions to obtain it? Thanks in advance for an update.

Re: new Solaris Oscillator Type coming in 2.0 OS

Amazing - your preview is much appreciated! Do I understand correctly that only the "carrier" has to be a PhaseMod-Oscillator and the "Modulator" can be any audio source?

Re: Multitimbrality

Indeed that looks very very nice. Thank you for the preview and the continued work on the OS! I am not sure if I understood correctly: will the multi presets be a new kind of object stored on the CF card? If yes, will they point to the single presets, or will they contain an independent copy of them...

Re: something new?

WOW !!! What a teaser, out of the blue... A Solaris desktop with the full blown UI - this would certainly be a very intesting product for those who do not yet own a Solaris. John, can you already disclose more details about hardware and/or OS? Would it contain the same hardware / DSPs as the current...

We had a similar question in this thread: https://forums.johnbowen.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=16299 , maybe that already helps. The "constantly morphing and evolving sounds" you mention might be done using a modulation of the position in the wavetable. The Solaris wavetable oscillators of...
