Device Overview

Name/Version: Solarus 1.2
Author: ManifestAudioGbR  
Description: Bring the music of the spheres into your workflow and infuse your creative process with the cycles of the cosmos — free!

Solarus and Cosmus are designed by Ableton Certified Trainer Noah Pred to bring the dynamics of the solar system into your DAW. All instances of Solarus in your Live set will utilize the base Earth Day rate set by an instance of the included Cosmus utility. The base rate determined by Cosmus accelerates what would otherwise be 24 hours on Earth to maintain relative rates between all instances of Solarus in your set, regardless of which celestial body they are set to represent.

The actual rate of each instance of Solarus is then determined by the celestial body dropdown chooser and the toggle between Orbit or Rotation mode, which will then set it to the relative time of one orbital or rotational cycle of that body. Below the LFO waveform is a display showing the length in hours of the orbit or rotation of the celestial body currently selected and the resulting rate in seconds when multiplied by the universal day rate set by Cosmus.

Changing the day rate in Hertz, MIDI notes, or metrical rate with multiplier in Cosmus will change the relative rates of all instances of Solarus throughout a set. You should only use one instance of Cosmus per set, ideally on your master track. Cosmus is required for all instances of Solarus to maintain relative rate consistency – and for rate settings to automated or saved with your Live set.

Advanced Solarus features include gravitational curve warping and modulation quantization. Both devices are optimized for Push with full Info View annotations. Map up to eight target parameters per Solarus, and let the cycles of the cosmos unfurl…

Nice freebie. Thanks!

Agreed - sweet freebie! I appreciate it! I think I own just about everything you guys have put out at this point (all stellar!) - I was happy to see this was free! If you're unfamiliar with this dev, check out their other stuff - all of it is top notch.
