Re: Developer Fund Update - Important!

Thanks for the update here John! Sent a donation to Hrastprogrammer. and happy to send a donation to Jim Hewes as well for their great contributions. I am not sure how difficult MPE support would be to add, but that would also be a very interesting item for Solaris. Also the feature request list has...

Re: Event Horizon 2 is now available!

Yes, the Event Horizon 1 set is included in the factory presets. If you contact Toby, he might make an adjustment. Yes I have kept the Event Horizon Volume 1 page live only to accept donations as mentioned on the page, (as it is included free in the Solaris factory library now) & keeping it liv...

Re: other Solaris hardware ideas

I would be interested in an expander (rack version with no display needed for me) with an editor for the use:
- expand the polyphony for use with a future multi-timbral mode
- VST editor librarian.

Re: Developer Fund

Therefore, you might be looking for two programmers- one for DSP and one for the external utilities. For librarian / vst editor something like these that would be absolutely amazing: https://www.mysteryislands-music.com/product-category/plug-ins/ I wonder if that programmer would be available for h...

Re: Developer Fund

Yes, definitely willing to pay $200+ for a 2.0 update. Here are a few things on my wishlist: - VST editor / Librarian - alternate FM mode (Is it actually phase modulation? The type of typical FM in most synths) - unison panning spread (a way to spread out the unison voices in the stereo field for re...

Re: Favorite Reverb

I have been using Valhalla vintageverb quite a bit which I like a lot (you can really dial in the tone with the EQ settings). I have heard lots of great things from the BigSky Strymon and have been considering getting one of those for a while.

Re: would you be interested in SOLARIS editor ?

Very cool app - thanks for taking the time to write that. My dream would be to one day have a VST app like that which would also allow patch switching and real time editing of parameters. Not sure what you mean by real time editing. It already does follow changes that you make on the Solaris. But m...

Re: would you be interested in SOLARIS editor ?

Since you bumped....I’m still continuing to work on this editor hoping the Solaris’s MIDI implementation gets finished. I thought about making it better looking with maybe a more traditional, modular look. Though Solaris has a lot of parameters and connections so it’s hard to fit. Be glad to discus...

Re: Announce when you receive your Solaris!

¿Phase modulation, maybe for the next OS update?
Would be very cool for some more gritty sounds :D
