Re: Playing 24 custom presets

Great sounds, every one of them! I really like these presets. Everyone who may be considering a Solaris should give these a listen.

Hi Eric. I hope you've been enjoying your Solaris. Anyone who gets played on Star's End is a celebrity in my book!

Re: Receive nrpn message

For exemple with DT 00 00 and DT0 the attack go from 0.0ms to -1638.4 (no s or ms indicated for -1638.4) The parameter values are actually all signed values. That first byte is the high byte of the number. So if you have the high bit of the value set to 1 it gets interpreted as a negative value. Of...

Re: Receive nrpn message

It seems you got pretty far to send the correct SysEx message. The Time parameters (and Frequency parameters) are kind of tough because they have a range of 0 - 200000 with a resolution of 0.1ms across the whole range. That resolution is useful at the low end but not at the higher end. The SysEx mes...

Re: How to load samples into Solaris

If you're using version 1.4.3 or later, this has changed. There is now a parameter on page 3 of the Home section called SmpPool which is essentially what SampImg was. You can select a sample pool and load it by pressing Enter. However, samples can now be made to load automatically when the preset is...

Re: Solaris Expander?

Any combination where the number of voices is an even number. So for example, 4+2+2+2 or 4+4+2+0 or 6+4+0+0 or even 2+4+0+0, etc.
You could not do 4+4+1+1.

Re: Solaris preset management

Beginning with version 1.4.2 bank numbers no longer need to be consecutive. You can skip bank numbers. And they don't need to start at zero.

Re: Global LFO

Since the voices are handled by separate DSPs which don't communicate with each other, I don't think the LFOs could be synced in a sample-accurate way. The LFOs are retriggered only when a note is played. So the only way I could do a kind of pseudo-sync in code is to play 10 short notes with re-trig...

Re: Envelope release time

Also note that if the slope is set to 127 (exponential) the time will seem shorter. Try setting it to 0 (linear).

Re: would you be interested in SOLARIS editor ?

At the time I didn't want to implement the file saving because I wasn't totally sure about the format of preset files. Since then, I just haven't updated it because I've been busy working on other things. The only changes I've made have been to keep up-to-date with the Solaris OS versions.

Re: USB freeze Nuendo on init

I don’t have Nuendo to test with but I did try with Cubase 10 and didn’t see a problem. You might try to disable plugins and see if that makes a difference. Without knowing what data is being sent it’s hard to know what is causing the freeze. So if you have any way to capture the data as John said i...

Re: MIDI Thru from USB?

No. Actually, MIDI thru is not accessible by the internal software. MIDI thru is just a direct electrical connection to the MIDI in connector.

Yes, I could have been a little more clear. I meant it would be the same as Unison being off.

Re: Univoice

The UniVoice parameter is the number of voices applied to each note. So UniVoice less than 2 (i.e. UniVoice 1) would just be the same as UniVoice being off. One voice for each note. I can't think of any reason why you should not see any difference when you change the UniTune parameter except that wh...

Re: Automating the Solaris using cubase?

With poly pressure, you have 127 X 127 parameters ! But on 8 bit = 127 resolution points. But with a smooth feature, or lag or slew limiter, whatever, the result is perfect and poly pressure is as easy to use as midi cc. I was just glancing at the manual for Virus C in the appendix. That's the only...
