Since the age of 15, starting with an Amiga 500 computer Don Solaris has been interested in sound manipulation and music production. Over the time he became a synthesizer enthusiast, sound designer / programmer eventually becoming what is known as “synth addict”. His first official release Analog Voltage soundset reached best-seller status within three months after initial release remaining the most sold soundset for all Waldorf synthesizers to this date. Since then he worked various synthesizer manufacturers in designing factory preset content. He moderates one of the largest music communities online called gearslutz.com where musicians, producers and sound designers meet to discuss music gear and production techniques. He wrote technical articles and synth reviews on once legendary web site called Sealed’s deepsynthesis.com. Obsessed with gear he devotes most of his time programming and designing new sounds. Life motto: You can never have enough gear.
