Re: AM/Ringmod help

I'm able to get convincing CS-80 type ring mod effects out of my Solaris - using the envelopes to modulate speed & depth. It sounds really cool and expressive. I forget the settings offhand - I'll have to check but it was fairly straight forward. The only issue I remember having is that the CS-80 ut...

Re: Developer Fund Update - Important!

Hi David, I know you are interested in improving the sample loading for the Solaris. One of the bigger issues before I get someone like SampleRobot involved would be to have a new Sample Player object that could handle multisamples. At the time we first designed the Solaris, I didn’t want to give i...

Re: Developer Fund Update - Important!

Yes! I will definitely financially support the continued development of the Solaris! Thanks again to Jim for all of his efforts! What a impact he has made on the development of the Solrais! I have made a donation to his paypal account. To me - the list looks fine. I would suggest getting a price quo...

This is great news!

Will you be able to use the sequencer / arpeggiator on select parts and turn these off for other parts?
Yes.
Excellent - can't wait!

Re: Global LFO

Thanks John. I was wondering if this might be in the code under Jim's control. Let me know what if anything that Jim could do for this. A future wish list for this would be: - LFO options for free running (today's functionality) or all voices being linked for that lfo - EG and Loop EG options to ope...

Global LFO

Hi all, Is there a way to have a global lfo feature on the Solaris where the lfo’s are in sync in phase and depth? Each modulation source seems to be per voice (which is great for Poly AT and other evolving sounds), but I am trying to emulate the single lfo’s on older poly synths. You can sort of em...

Re: New OS Update - 1.4.4

Thanks for another great update Jim & John!

I've been busy refurbishing an OBX that I bought late last year and am just getting back to my Solaris. It's great to see the ongoing support for this great synth!

Re: Way to reduce the pitch mod lower than 0.10?

Hi - I agree - the .10 is not granular enough. Especially when I try to emulate something like the tight phasing of Mini Moog oscillators. What I have done in those situations is I send the MAXVAL to a mixer and use the mixer to modulate the pitch of the oscillator. You can reduce the the amount in ...

Re: Patch Master Volume Issues

Quick Update - I think I solved it! I had a flaky expression pedal plugged into the Solaris. When the floor was jostled (footsteps / heavy playing), the pedal would jump and send a low value to the Solaris. When I played a patch that has the expression pedal set to Expr - the Master Volume knob only...

Re: Patch Master Volume Issues

John - I just tried to calibrate the volume knob and it did not help. This was also happening when receiving CC#7 remotely.

For a test, I went back to OS 1.3 and it worked fine there.

I re-flashed 1.4.2 - and now it works fine again. I'm not sure what was happening...
