Re: V 2.0 strange behaviour when changing voice count

Yes, thank you. The added DSP is not getting the edited value. I guess for now you have to first select the voice count then make the VCA edits.

Re: Developer Fund Update - Important!

A couple features that I feel are important: 1. A function or functions that can offset parameters per voice such as pitch, envelopes, filter, etc. Basically, what Sequential did with the new Prophet 5/10 and the “Vintage” knob. It would give the Solaris a way to sound organic instead of being “per...

Cheers, John Bowen Solaris v2...

Re: Sending midi after touch with Solaris

The Solaris sends a standard MIDI Channel aftertouch. I think you are asking about polyphonic AT, since the Hydrasynth has such a keyboard?
The Solaris can respond to Poly AT, but does not have Poly AT built in to send it.

No problem...and just to mention, it is a 2 dimensional envelope, so each of the eight points have X and Y values. (This is obviously for Prophet VS-type control.)
