New John Bowen "Quadralaris" In the Works

"I've been working in secret on a new UI design to satisfy the many requests to have a version of the Solaris with lots of sliders instead of displays for the parameters. This new model comes as a 4-part multitimbral device, hence the name.

All sliders are magnetically motorized, using the lastest developments in solenoid design. Sliders are color-coded for quick understanding of audio or controller signals. As with the current Solaris, any signal can be patched to any module, allowing for greater flexibility in sound modulation. Along with a joystick for vector synthesis control, the entire blank panel above the keyboard acts as a 3-dimensional ribbon controller, for MPE applications.
