PreenFM1 (the blue one) / Re: PreenFM VST v0.3
« on: May 20, 2012, 09:16:04 PM »
v0.3 is ready....

Thanks a lot funkyfli for the bug reports....
Fixed in v0.3 :
1> "the voices do not follow the algorithms when they are switched"

2> "and, the matrix combobox options are displayed below the version # "
Fixing "the lower comboboxes" was a bit more complicated so not priority 1 for the moment

3> "On Algorithm 9, switching operator 5 shape, changes the frequency to low (.38 I think)"
Good catch... operator 6 shape was also broken...

Thanks for having checked... that's really usefull...
If we eliminates the possibilities one by one, we're going to find a solution  ;)

Merci pour ce retour très positif...
Je suis bien content que tout se soit bien passé pendant le montage et que le module fini te plaise.

N'hésite pas a installer la derniere version du firmware et à essayer le VST ;)

Si tu as des questions quant à l'utilisation, le forum est là pour ça.

Thanks  for the feedbacks :)

Thanks for the requests ... i'm glad you like your blue box  :)

3. Sysex internal doc ?
I agree it's hard to understand from the code...
And it's not very clean because i had to deal with upward compatibility.
Antway, it's a good idea and i'll try to put something on the website... I'll post a message here when it's done.

Thanks a lot for the suggestion.

5. That's not exactly what you suggest but you have this when you set a Midi clock based sequencer tempo (after 240).. You need your sequencer to send midi clock.

5a.  In the matrix, you can redirect the step sequencer to the frequency of all oscillator "o*fr"... so that you control the pitch. Set the multplier at 64 and you'll have one semitone per step value.

Thanks for the info and the URL.

I give a look at the code and i think that the 'active sensing' message cannot cause a problem. They are simply ignored.
To be 100%sure, can you disable 'active sensing' on your EMU880 and check if that change something ?
Or do you know a sequencer that can send this midi messages ?

I use the same 6n137 based midi schema as the shruti-1 so i don't think it's a hardware problem.

Le me know if you find something, i'll continue investigating,

Thanks a lot for the report.
Yes i'm happy you have it working.

I've noticed that too in sonar 8. It works with an instrument track but not with a midi only track !! That's sounds weird !
But sonar 8 there seems to have an aditional NRPN bug... anyway sonar 8 is 4 years old now.

Any adidional information by people who have note on/off problem are welcome.

It's always difficult to know who's fault it is.

Funkyfli do you mean it does no work you UM880.
Doe you have other sound module that work with it ?
What do you mean by "This might be due to the fact that it sends out 4 Active Sensing messages a minute... continuously."

Thanks for the good ideas.
When i have more free time, i'll definitely give a try at 2. Maybe a new page in the "engine" part.
I tried 1 at some point but it required a big rewrite of many things. But i agree it would be very cool.... Attack and of course release.

3. I don't understand what you mean...
Reading and dumping patch or bank as sysex is included in the menu...

Great you have it working with VSTHost !

Mouse Wheel is supported all over the VST and should work.
I also use mouse wheel a lot and it was a priority.
Maybe VSTHost does not forward the mouse wheel info to the VST. I'll give it a try.

Thanks for the other reports.

I'll try to build a standalone version. The VST framework i use has this feature.

The first VST was declared as an FX, it must be a synth to work in Sonar.
The v0.2 i just uploaded should work better.

I fought against sonar 8 to have it working.
I have the VST send midi to the Preen.
I cannot get the Preen send correctly to the VST. Seems like all NRPN value are 0. The right VST controller change but with the value 0.
There is a strange "don't intercept NRPN" option in the VST options that does not change anything.
Don't know if it's a Sonar 8 problem with NRPN or if it's a problem with the VST.

I'll try to investigate further when i have more time.
Anyway this V0.2 is better than the other.

Let me know what works / does not work for you,

Thanks for the report.
I'll give it a try with sonar.
I have a sonar 8 license... I'll reinstall it and see if i can reproduce. I also saw there's a trial sonar X1 version.
I really have to try it on other hosts...

Great !
So you made the good choice ordering at seeestudio. :-)

PreenFM1 (the blue one) / PreenVST 2.00.B3 (OSX Version available).
« on: April 24, 2012, 12:15:53 AM »

Here are the VST version for windows.
Chose the win32 for 32 bits and x64 for the 64 bits version.

August 16th : OSX version !
This is 2.00.B3 version so it requires a 2.00.B3 firmware.
The VST for OSX should work for both 32 and 64 bits host and osx 10.5 and above.
I'm very interested by any feedbacks on osx. This is very new for me and to be honnest i've only tried with Reaper 32bits on osx 10.6.8.
The library i use do not allow for the moment AudioUnit plugin to send midi. I'll work on that.

Let me know all your problems/bugs etc... All remarks are welcome.

What's new in PreenVST 2.00.B3
. Compatible with firmware 2.00.B3 (matrix destination list + FULL NRPN support).
. Provided with more than 50 presets from the great Funkyfli bank + some drum sounds.
. Preset names are now editable with you computer keyboard and is saved with the preset.
. New version number to make the firmware compatibility clearer ;-)
. Much more tests than the previous one (so lots of fixes)...

Quick start :
Update your PreenFM firmware to be compatible with your PreenVST.
Then, PreenFM  Menu->conf :
  Midi channel : All or 1
  Midi thru : No
  Recevies :NRPN
  Send : NRPN
In your sequencer, the track where you put the plugin should receveive the PreenFM midi output and the track should send midi to the PreenFM input.
Load a preset on the PreenFM (hardware) then press "get preset" on the plugin... The hardware should dump its state and the plugin should be updated.

. What you change on the plugin should be copied to the PreenFM.
. What you change on the PreenFM should be copied to the plugin. So they should stay in sync.

Quit the sequencer, reload your project, the PreenFM should be initialized with the plugin state.

PS :
The sources will be available and i used IPlug libraries from Cokcos modified by olilarkin:
Si this should compile without too much modification as audio unit for mac. If you have a mac, understand what all that means, and have free time to spend... let me know.

If you use Reaper you need to do the following:
"First call up the preferences panel (CTRL P) - then scroll down the list on the left and choose 'MIDI Devices'
At the bottom of the main panel, you will see tick boxes for "On stop/play..." followed by a few reset options.
Clearing the 'Reset CC' should stop Reaper from sending annoying messages that will set to the min value the last param you changed..."

Do you have any plans for any future devices? physical modelling is rather neglected ;)

No real plans for the moment.

Physical modelling would be very interesting. But it requires lots of processing...
More than a cortex-M3 could provide.
