There’s something vaguely CS-80ish about the pile of sawtooth waves. The ONLY thing that I wish it had were more outputs. Five outputs pre-panned across the stereo spectrum would have made this utterly perfect, but I’ll take 99% perfection!
Adding extra outputs is often fairly easy if you ever indulge in DIY.
I've just had a look at the SOLAR 50 website, and it seems that five oscillators are by default connected to the Knob 01-05 control, and the other five to the Knob 06-10 control.
It's almost certain that each will be sent to these controls via resistors to mix the signals together, which means that you could tap off five of the oscillator signals before these resistors, and likewise for the other five. The chances are that you could simply send all ten signals to separate output sockets, with perhaps a smallish 1k series resistor to ensure that you can't short out the oscillators when you plug something into your new sockets.
After all, adding separate outputs is a common mod for things such as drum machines and the like, so lots of people have done this in the past.
Hope this helps!
