But you could, for example, just paste the code into a Github Gist and link it here. Whatever the reason, the String Synthesizer was not a commercial success and only 100 were manufactured. The 310 Unique wasn't the only Eminent model to offer these facilities. But what about the fourth button for the upper manual? Like the lower half of the keyboard, the four upper instruments are all based on the same frequency-divided oscillators, so again, any significant sonic differences between the two boil down to filtering. Supposedly only about 100 were ever produced. So why is it today one of the most revered of all vintage keyboards, and how does it command prices many times those of later, ostensibly better string synths? The 8' Cello and 16' Contra-bass offered similar timbres but had slower envelopes.
And, let's be honest, a home organ the size and weight of a Mellotron Model 300 was never going to appear in the keyboard rigs of the rich and famous. In addition, Solina Redux has two fully programmable step sequencers, one for the Solina instrument and one for the analog synthesizer. But the company got its start in the keyboard market buying and rebranding a design by an Italian company, Siel. The Arp Solina was the most significant string ensemble of the 70s, made famous by the Eagles, Elton John, Pink Floyd, The Cure, Joy Division, Tangerine Dream, New Order and many others. Early Solinas had just three: low output, high output and an input for an expression volume pedal. You can hold a chord till you drop from exhaustion. Please visit for more information.
Manufactured by the Dutch company Eminent, it was a home organ: the Eminent 310 Unique. Three of these comprised the string Ensemble circuitry and three comprised the Orbitone section. Models like the 310, 490 and 610 all can switch between an organ section and a string section, a type of flexibility that would be left by the wayside as competition in the field multiplied. The Solina string sound has also been used by and , , , , , , , , , , and. The Solina String Ensemble uses divide-down technology, common in organs of the era, to achieve full polyphony. Ken Freeman had blazed a trail with his String Synthesizer prototypes, but the Eminent 310 Unique proved to be the progenitor of almost all subsequent string machines. The viola and violin are the source of the legendary string sound, with the viola being an octave lower than the violin.
Elka wasn't distributed much in the United States, but it filled Europe with organs, string synthesizers and electric pianos throughout the '70s. The String Synthesizer pictured above is painted white, but they originally have a standard wood case like the Ensemble models. Yet string synths have experienced a resurgence in popularity this century precisely because they do one thing and do it well: lush, cosmic, analog warmth. This is a shared-link-view only. Mind you, it was a heavy beast, so it's quite possible that players would have preferred to carry two separate keyboards.
The range of possibilities suggested by this architecture were mind-boggling; the 310 was not only the first but perhaps the most powerful string synthesizer ever to be released. Thank you for fast reply, ill try see if I can find the issue the keyboard. So, for example, you could mix the strings, 'Ensembled' principals and 'straight' tibias on the upper manual, with strings and chorused principals on the lower, while playing the polyphonic bass pedals without modulation. This one was painted white by a previous owner Here are some detail shots of the front panel If anyone has anymore information or photos of the Solina String Synthesizer, please so I can add them to this page. With the introduction of programmable polyphonic synths such as the Sequential Prophet-5 and Roland Jupiter-8, the relatively limited string machine quickly fell out of favor, compounded by the fact that its sound had become associated with countless disco tracks. This synth had four keyboard modes: - Strings Only - Strings through the Explorer low-pass filter - Explorer voice combined with the lower Solina keyboard contrabass and cello - Explorer voice combined with the upper Solina keyboard viola, violin, trumpet, horn This may be an incomplete manual.
The Solina's sound generation was based on technology, which produced a fixed frequency for each note on the keyboard. As with its predecessor, the keyboard is pseudo-splittable with contra bass and cello emulations in the lower half and viola, violin, trumpet, and horn in the upper half. This is what happens when you build my synthesizers. They had it; they simply lacked the button to turn it off. Soft clipping adds even more punch and presence.
The direct box is just the classic green one that you see everywhere; it's generic and cheap. Analog Synthesizers: Understanding, Performing, Buying--From the Legacy of Moog to Software Synthesis. Im wondering that if I could just be using one of the other empty Ports on the atmega, change D2 to D12, it could be a work-around. If someone has additional pages, please. The chorus is very special. The fatness of the keyboard.
However, that was where the conventional organ technology ended. Later dubbed 'paraphonic', this architecture had significant shortcomings, because it was unable to articulate notes correctly if others were already — or still — held. It is based on a paraphonic oscillator, a simple envelope and a phaser. The other three control panels made the 310 very special indeed. But both yours and Blog Hoskins have the same without problem so i dont understand.
I opted for , described by. However, Freeman wasn't the only one chasing this goal back in the 1970s, and this month we're going to take a look back at another participant in the race. It was derived from the string section of Eminent's 310U Organ, and sold commercially as the Eminent Solina String Ensemble. I had one of the first Hagstrom Patch 2000 synth-guitars which I used on the 'Drastic Plastic' album. It activates your licenses and synchronizes them across multiple devices you get five instances with each instrument license. The conventional organ-like Timbre, Vibrato and Reverberation sliders of the Eminent 310 Unique.
