Solaris Pre-Order information

UPDATED March 18, 2020: 

New Product Update:

Solaris Tabletop - I am now taking names for a Wait List. Please send your request to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

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. We are taking pre-orders now for 'the box', and pricing is $1999. Please contact me at  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it  for more information.

Delivery date is expected to be starting in June.

As for the Solaris keyboard, we are again able to start taking pre-orders. Please see pricing below. If you'd like to be put on the Wait List for the keyboard version, please send me a request at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

The price for the OLED version will be $4500 (we are no longer supplying the non-OLED version). If prepaid in full, there will be a $200 discount. A place on the production list can be reserved with a 50% deposit. (Prices in Euros are calculated at the current exchange rate when purchasing.)
