About pre-orders SOLAR 50
Unfortunately, we cannot start raising funds for the production of our new device at «Kikstarter» or «Indigogo» platforms as none of them work correctly in Russia. Therefore we start raising funds for the production of the second batch of SOLAR 50 by our own. The fact is thereʼs a huge number of parts and accessories and it will require some time for producing and delivering them. (So we have to order everything in advance). We guarantee that you will receive your instrument as we stand for our reputation in front of the customers.
PRICE - 900 Euros + 95 Euro world wide shipping or 985 USD + 100 USD world wide shipping . Shipments first batch will take place in July - August. International shipping will be operated by EMS shipping service.

DESCRIPTION AND CONCEPT
SOLAR50 the unique instrument is designed for creating atmospheric sounds, background music, microtonal music, super polyphonic electro symphonies, as well as for making movie soundtrack. Inspired by early electronic musical developments of the last century, particularly Leo Theremin's instrument called “Harmonium” and other weird synths like a ANS. This is performance oriented analogue electronic music instrument! Variations of sounds that you can create with «SOLAR 50» are really huge.
SOLAR50 analog ambient synthesiser consists of 10 voices. Each voice, in its turn, consists of 5 simple saw oscillators (2 low, 2 middle, 1 high) with a pitch controller and a mute button for each oscillator.
Oscillators don’t have linear or logarithmic dependence from control voltage and remind of first electro musical instruments and organs generators. Each voice is provided with an envelope (attack/release parameters) controlled by a tactile sensor. In addition, there is a GATE-ON button for every voice, making it sound constantly, and a voice volume controller. There are two independent LFOs and a bunch of external CV inputs on board and so called PLS connector for connecting a CV source in order to control the pitch of each of 50 oscillators and to start the envelope of any voice. Patching is possible with euro rack standard . MUTE buttons let you use from 1 up to 5 oscillators per voice, tuning in for chords, thirds, fifths and other intervals or to get a clean single note. Every oscillator has a sawtooth waveform. All voices are mixed together and then go to the effector block where you can use cartridges from ELTA CONSOLE pedal. This adds even more variety to the sound of the instrument! Every cartridge has 3 effects inside, now 12 cartridges are available, so that are 36 effects in summary like delay, pitch delay, reverb, shimmer, tremolo, chorus, flanger, phaser, filter and many more! You can also create your own effects in special software application (available on spinsemi.com (http://spinsemi.com/)). The effector unit is based on common FV-1 chip, which is DIY friendly. It consists of cartridge slot, three effect parameters controllers, effect switch, and master volume. The SOLAR 50 has dry outputs for 5 right and 5 left voices and a general mono output from the effector, where all 10 voices are mixed. Dry outputs can be used either to create a wide stereo field, processing them through stereo reverbs, delays and other effects or for tuning as you play (If you connect a cable into a dry output, it’s signal would disappear from the overall mix).
