Re: Announce when you receive your Solaris!

Back in February I was told mine would be assembled 3rd or 4th week of March. No updates since then. I'm slightly nervous since there wasn't any communication following John's trip to Germany earlier this month, but I'll wait until the end of next week before succumbing to full-out panic. ; )

Re: Does the Solaris digital out - fit this digital in?

John Bowen wrote:As to the comment from lotus-eater...you can get the Solaris to output 96kHz output if you slave it from a 96kHz Master clock. Just connect a 96kHz signal to the S/PDIF Input on the Solaris, and there you have it!
Awesome! That's great to know.

Re: Does the Solaris digital out - fit this digital in?

You will need a converter to go from Solaris' TOSLINK output to your interface's RCA S/PDIF input.

I'm planning on using Solaris' S/PDIF output as well, but it's a bit of a shame we can't get the full 96khz output from the synth digitally.

Re: We need more Solaris videos!

Some new Solaris videos would be nice, if only to remind potential buyers that it does kinda actually exist. I can see the Prophet 12 taking a lot of business from JB with its lower price tag, analogue circuitry, and knob-per-function interface. I personally like the curtis filters very much and fo...

Re: SOS magazine Awards vote

as much as i like the solaris, i guess it will be hard to win the award. how many units were sold to real customers up to now? so many potential buyers still consider it vaporware and see / have no chance to get one. still no chance to get one in germany for months / years now. only a vague "on req...

Re: SOLARIS EXPANDER / EXPANSION - WISH :)

Can John give us a rough estimation, how much DSP power the multitimbrality would eat. Because I would be more interested on having even more impossibly compllicated...ehm, versatile synth, instead of mundane multitimbrality, if it costs a lot of processing power. Even if it costs mere development ...

Re: SOLARIS EXPANDER / EXPANSION - WISH :)

I really hope that this $4k DIGITAL synthesizer will eventually have a four part multitimbral mode (each part assignable to a separate midi channel) without the need for an expander module. Solaris keyboard synth doesn´t need a/the rack module for MIDI multi mode. When Solaris becomes MIDI multitim...

I assume that's the plan given previous discussions on the forum and all of those individual outputs on the ba...

Re: Future Features - KEYBOARD INTELLIGENCE?

It's really interesting to read different members feature requests. What you describe above as 'Keyboard Intelligence' isn't high up on my own feature request list (perhaps a few audio examples could change my mind), but I really like the idea of modular upgrades for the Solaris. I can't think of an...

Re: Solaris roadmap for availability of Expansion Packs, etc

Great idea! No need to ditch an old algorithm if it's got some low-end magic missing in the newer, alias-free type.

Solaris roadmap for availability of Expansion Packs, etc..

Both of those seem like great additions. :D

Is this second multimode osc already in place in the plugin solaris, or did the idea evolve out of something else?

Amazing! This was something I was really hoping for down the road. I love the SEM bandpass so much, and have used it (well the studio electronics clone anyway) in a bunch of patches over the last few years. So glad it will be available - along with all the other modes - right from the start.
