  • Solaris build shots...

    For those of you not on Friendface, I thought I'd pass these on. John is in Germany supervising the build of the first batch of units...

          Because SonicCore is the builder. I can't even begin to tell you how many trips back and forth John has had to make...

                Former BMW owner here.

                German cars are indeed quality -- for the first five years. After that, watch out. Three guesses, by the way, as to why I'm a former owner...

                      Nice to see it in production..

                      I preordered one in February 2008, but when production was pushed back, at that time to September 2008, I requested a refund, thinking it was far too long to have my cash tied up.

                      3.5 years later and its being produced. Very disappointing timeline considering what was scheduled in its early days, but I'm sure it will be a lovely machine.

                      I've moved on from lusting after this synth now though
                      Synthesizers!!

                          Many things have caused delays, legal stuff, and John was partnered with SonicCore as far as the coding goes. The code writer works for SonicCore, so their stuff came first, and coding on the Solaris would be put on hold. Finding vendors is nevery easy on a start up project, once again you are on their schedule, especially when ordering smaller batches of product, also if the item is being designed from scratch, then that also takes time.
                          John is the first one who will tell you he never envisioned this would turn out to be so involved.
                          I've been in from the start, being the 22nd order, and yes it's been a very long wait, and there were times I wanted to cash in.

                          I think once the Solaris gets out into the marketplace and we can hear it used in peoples music, the lust will grow once again for many people.

                          And looking at the pricepoint of some of the newer synthesizers being released, I don't think price is as big an issue as it once was.

                              All 100 preorders have sold out. Some of that number include the distributer in Germany. I don't know how many units they ordered.
                              I believe it's the same distributer that handles Moog over there.
