PreenFM2 / Re: 4 Instrunents? I just see 1
« on: October 16, 2017, 09:18:12 AM »
well, the preenfm2 itself is 4 voice multitimbral, that means you can assign four different instruments to 4 different "slots" on the preen fm. (i1 to i4)

you can then assign different midi channels from the global menu, so that each channel is only played by a specific midi channel, creating 4 different instruments. you can also assign the same midi channel to all instruments and play them all at once. or you can load 4 times the same preset into the instrument slots and detune each voice slightly to get nice chorus effects.

you choose i1 to i4 simply by pressing the instrument button just below the volume pot on the right side.

you should be able to simply import dx7 sysex files.

this resulted in a crash of the synth.

Do you have a step to reproduce ?

yes, create a new combo file and set the preen fm to load a combo on boot. don't create a combo and on start select an empty combo.

but, it is not really an issue...

The branch name is 8mono if you want to play with it.
https://github.com/Ixox/preenfm2/blob/8mono/src/hardware/FMDisplay.cpp#L1121
And the function bellow that erase the number after some time.

i will probably clone this and make my adaptions for this version also.

as for the voice display, i don't really care :-) maybe one could make it display just lines or points for each voice that would then fit on one row?

something like: :::: (but each point can be turned on and off individually)

saving combos worked fine.

i tried loading a combo when i had created the combo bank but not yet saved a combo sound. this resulted in a crash of the synth.

Midi channels are still in Menu=>Settings, but i have a proto with 8 timbres.
Let me know if you find any bugs.
I also didn't test it under heavy load.

Screen displays "8 timbres" when booting with the version 2.07 b1.
seems to work fine so far, have to do some more heavy load testing :-)

the timbre numbers 5 to 8 are displayed on the "home" screen as 1 to 4. so if you play i1 and i5 you only see that i5 is playing. theoretically there would be space one row below. this is not a real bug, more cosmetics :-)

yeah, to each their one i guess :-) for me open source and hackability is a must, so also much more likely to get a second preenfm2 at some point.

cool xavier! thanks so much for this. i'm abroad until sunday, but will try asap!

yeah...

PreenFM2 / Re: Bootloader for mac?
« on: October 05, 2017, 09:48:14 PM »
you start the boot loader on the preenfm while you power it on by pressing any key. you then get a menu to choose from, one of the entries lets you read the usb-stick on the pc. just connect the preenfm with an usb cable to your mac and you should be good to go.

i'm interested in this actually, since i also only use monophonic sounds. i would like to see 8 monophonic timbres, doable?

maybe if we/you redo the combo file structure for preset saving of midi channel and offset this can be adressed as well, would be great!!!!


as always, i am up for it, but i will need some first guidance :-)

this is an overclocked version, it's not difficult to make a normal version, why would you need it?
