ctrlr.org was discussed earlier. I attempted to edit a panel for the Prophet Rev2 (both sysEx as well as NRPN) this very week. I think a panel for the Solaris was possible, but requires some programming knowledge (lua) and is a lot of work.

To slice it down, one could first create kind of patch viewer displaying the wiring of modules or so. Maybe this could be done as a community effort, so bucks are saved for actual synth features.

8 ) Add looping to the envelopes.

=> Alternatively, add an additional 8 step envelope, including looping, as the Microwave I provides. Described on page 4-15 of the programming manual:

I remember I had a lot of fun using it, e.g. as a pitch modulator.
You mean in addition to the one that is already in the Solaris? So have 2 of the 8-stage EGs? That was my original plan, but it just didn't get done at the time.

Hello all,

Hope you're all well.

I'm happy to donate...I don't understand the tech stuff sorry.
Not sure I even need Version 2.0...but still happy to donate. I just play 'keys'. I don't turn knobs.
Thank you to those who worked on it though.
Does anyone know if we will also get new sounds/presets demonstrating all the new features? I hope so!
New Jupiter 8 and Yamaha CS80 features sound great for a later OS.

Anyway, I will donate and pay for the new OS and the later OS - please provide sounds too if you have time please.
Thanks in advance

Billy

Jim worked for many hours getting all of the 1250+ parameters registered as SysEx, so we are no longer using NRPN, but I’m sure you could make a panel given the documentation. He also has a basic software “patch viewer” called ’solarium’, about which you can read more here: http://forums.johnbowen.com/viewtopic.p ... 379#p21613

Jim asked that we hold off until v2.0 is released. My plan now is that I will be asking for a minimum donation for v2.0 OS, with anything additional as you wish.

@John About the 8 stage envelope, sorry that I missed that. Due to home office, I have currently no direct access to my Solaris.

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.)

Hi John, I thought the OS 2.0 was to be free. Do the donations recently done (to Jim and Hrast) account for this mínimun ammount?

Many thanks

Yes, if you made a donation already, you will receive v2.0.

So, if you purchase a new Solaris (Q1 2021) does it come with the new 2.0 OS?
