The Sound of the Future! Solaris is an incredibly powerful and versatile synthesizer. With options to simulate relatively simple analog synthesizers, to large and complex (modular-like) methods, even FM synthesis or wavetable synthesis - everything is there!. Equiped with a versatile sound engine, intuitive step sequencer, powerful effect range and logical layout, the Solaris provides hours of sonic explaration and creativity!
Prophet Plus
An expanded version of the authentic emulation of a legendary instrument! Using SonicCore's Scope SDK (a highly advanced technology development platform) and building propietary algorithms, finally it is possible to generate a software synthesizer that rivals its legendary hardware predecessors in every way. Pro-Wave takes everything the Prophet Plus has to offer and adds multiple filter choices and Waldorf-style wavetables!

Quantum Wave SE v1.0


Announcing the Quantum Wave SE (Single Edition) v1.0, a plug-in for Scope systems.

A 'spin-off' device from my Quantum Wave synth (which was originally commissioned by Hans Zimmer to recreate his Waldorf Wave), it's basically one of the four Instruments that is contained in the larger Quantum Wave, with the addition of the Global and FX parameters that are normally part of the Performance presets. This SE version does not use Performance presets, but does have the ability to load any of the other preset lists of the Quantum Wave (FX, Looping EG, Instruments). For those who have smaller Scope DSP systems and still want to enjoy the sound of the Waldorf oscillators and functionality of the Wave design, the Quantum Wave SE is the ideal choice! I was able to get polyphony of up to 15 voices in my 23 DSP system, indicating roughly about 8-9 voices for a 6 DSP board. Price is 125 Euros/$160 USD.

Solaris v 5.0

Announcing Solaris v5.0, a new, more powerful Solaris plug-in for Scope systems. With over 100 new parameters, Solaris v5.0 promises to surpass anything else in this format for function and flexibility. Incorporating the best ideas of most of my previous synths (starting with the Orion Custom), plus some additions as requested by the beta testers, the Solaris is the most full-featured synth I've designed to date. The signal sources provide a wide variety of choices: Multimode Oscs, Wave Tables, CEMs, RD Modules, WAV (sample) playback, FM Operators...even create your own with the Modular sections!

Here's a listing of the changes in Solaris version 5.0:

1) Envelope time control by MIDI Clocks (BPM option) - Each envelope can be switched to select timing values table little txt
based on MIDI clocks/BPM values.

2) Mixer Insert FX - Each Mixer now has a selection of effects that can be inserted into the signal path pre-or post-filter.

3) VCA Output page - Each Mixer has a page providing flexible assignment and modulation for the Amplifier section.

4) 4 Separate Amp (VCA) sections - Related to item #3, there are now 4 separate Amp modules (previously there was only one amp module for the entire synth). This allows for even greater sound design for each mixer/filter path, giving you the architecture of essentially 4 synths within each Preset.

5) Stereo Formant Filter - Located after the polyphonic outputs but before the Flanger, Delay, EQ and Overdrive, a new Formant Filter section is provided for vowel and other formant sounds.

6) x Mult sections - New x Multiplier modules all you to multiply a selectable input source by itself up to 5 x. Great for extremely punchy envelopes!

7) VibLFO page 3 - Control of the Vibrato LFO amount can be selected from a list other than the Mod Wheel. Also, modulation of rate and depth, as with the other lfos, is provided.

8) Response Tables added for Mod Wheel and Aftertouch - Similar to the Velocity table, new controller tables have been added for Mod Wheel and Aftertouch.

9) New per Oscillator Glide - A new panel offering modulatable logarithmic glide amounts for each oscillator source. You can also control all Osc 1s or Osc 2s with the same rate. In addition, you can modulate the glide time with sources such as velocity and Mod Wheel!

10) New Global page for all Filter Keytrack controls - All 4 filter keytrack amounts are now visible and editable from a single panel.

11) Independent Input selects for the filters - All 4 filter inputs are no longer 'hardwired' to their own mixers. Each filter can now select from any Mixer or Filter for signal input, making series configurations easier.

I hope you will agree these additions make this incredible synthesizer even more flexible and powerful!

New users can purchase the Solaris v5.0 via ShareIt in my Zarg Music Shop here. Price is 299 EUR

Pro-Wave v1.2.1

1) 3 filter types, based on emulations of both Prophet 5 filters (SSM, CEM) and the Minimoog (Minimax)
2) Midi clocking of the Loop Envelope
3) Extended Midi times for sync - up to 8 bars/1 cycle
4) Note and Mod Wheel added to PolyMod Source lists
5) Enable switch and Sensitivity added for Mod Wheel
6) Panning circuit from Solaris added.
The Pro-Wave is completely compatible with the current Proph@t Plus preset lists. The price is 149 EUR. An upgrade/crossgrade is available for current Proph@t Plus owners; cost is 59 EUR. Purchase of the Pro-Wave can be done via direct bank transfer (request details at info@johnbowen.com, or via ShareIt here.

Update v3.0 available for Pro-One !

I had a customer contact me about buying the old Pro One plug-in I made (for Wine Country) some time ago, and shortly after I sold it to him, he wrote to ask if I could add some highpass and bandpass filters. I asked him did he want 24dB or 12 dB slope filters? He came back with, "yes"....for both! So, I added the filters, including the SSM and Minimoog emulations, plus a new filter select parameter, and sent it off, asking only that he create some new presets using the added filters. 3 days later, he sends, not only a bank of 100 great new presets, but a completed Demo Song showing them off! And I have to tell you, I was very, very impressed!! Mp3 demos can be found in product info page.
