Espen Kraft has recently taken a look at the John Bowen Solaris - a fully digital synthesizer released in 2011. It's a synth which completely passed me by, but given the digital abilities and features within it, it certainly looks a treat. It's capable of playing wave tables from the 4 oscillator slots - and has the Prophet VS, Moog Minimoog and Casio CZ wave forms on board the latest OS.
It was designed and made by John Bowen, and has the following features:
It's a superb overview of this digital monster - which is packed with features, and uses a compact flash card to store patches, presets, wave files and the OS. Perhaps the name was inspired by the incredible Andrei Tarkovsky film too...
There are plenty more videos on Espen Kraft's youtube channel. For more information on the Solaris, head over here: https://www.johnbowen.com/solaris-overview.html
