Solaris Pre-Order information

UPDATED April 15, 2021:

Product Update: Solaris Voice Expander production in 2nd Quarter

Solaris Voice Expander - built in a 1U-sized cabinet, while not a full 19" width (and does not ship with 'rack ears'), the Voice Expander uses the same motherboard as the keyboard version, and adds another 10 voices of polyphony when using Poly Chain. (Just make sure both units have the same Program data on their CF cards!). You can also just layer it with your current Solaris. All parameters are connected to a Solaris front panel (via SysEx) for easy editing. Sales and production will be handled by Sonic Core. Please contact Sonic Core at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it for more information.

Solaris Tabletop and keyboard - All pre-orders are on hold for the moment. I will be posting expected production news when I have it.

All sales are now limited to direct orders only, with the following exception:

  • customers living in Japan - please contact Fukusan Kigyo Co.,Ltd.¬†for Solaris information.

Note that I do not accept payment by credit card, except via PayPal. Only PayPal or bank wire is acceptable at this time.

Thanks to those of you who have shown such interest in Solaris (tm)!
