O.k.,- I guess the Enable Part buttons now are related to the 4 MIDI zones once the unit is set to work in MIDI Multi mode,- yes ?John Bowen wrote: ↑Fri Jan 17, 2020 10:59 pm Only even voice numbers are possible because each of 5 DSP chips produce 2 voices (the 6th DSP manages the FX and output routing). The parameters for a program are downloaded to the chip when selected, and so each one plays 2 voices with the same settings.
(Technically we could have 5 parts playing two voices each, but I wanted to stay consistent with the Enable Part buttons on the front panel.)
But what has consistence between "Part" buttons and MIDI Zones to do w/ voice allocation ?
Aren´t voices freely assignable across the DSPs ?
You say, when deciding for a monophonic part, the 2nd voice of that DSPchip playing the part´s patch/preset is lost ?
Is that a technical limitation of the SHARC DSP or the SDK ?
Do we get a software editor for the 1HU Solaris module once it is available ?
If yes,- is it a VST plugin, standalone application (Mac, PC or both ?) and possibly a SCOPE device in addition?
Or is the 1HU just only a polyphony-expander for Solaris keyboard synths and listening to MIDI SysEx,- while the desktop module is for the non Solaris keyboard owners ?
