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.

36
cool xavier! thanks so much for this. i'm abroad until sunday, but will try asap!

yeah...

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.

yeah, the we was attributed to xavier :-) but testing will be very welcome.

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?

PreenFM2 / Re: Multi USB inputs..

Oh yes !
USB OTG (switch between host and device) is very complicated.
In fact USB is complicated, which is why it's so simple to use.

haha, nice one!

there is a fundamental misunderstanding here.

the usb port on the back of the preenfm has no host facility, you can only plug the preenfm to a host (computer for example) you cannot connect keyboards or anything to it. if at all possible this would have to be added to the usb port inside the preenfm where the stick is inserted. support for usb-midi devices would be very nice indeed. Xavier, is this much work? (it would require usb hub support and usb-midi parsing)

This is great news, I'll check it out as soon as I can!

Just took a glimpse at the changes, and I am very happy to have a reference for future fiddling with UI code (hope I find some time for that), thanks for that!

just be aware that you cannot simply add more ui elements to the preenfm2. you will have to change the preset file as well and make sure that old presets are loaded correctly and new presets are loaded correctly on older firmwares. it is a little messy. what i did involved no changes to the ui as such, i simply expanded a menu entry and used the same variables, that way the preset files stays the same.
