Thanks for the report and for taking the time to take pictures.
I'll take a look when i have time...

PreenFM2 / Arp MIDI CC NRPN Bug 2.08b Xavier & lokki OS's
« Last post by prephylve1 on September 08, 2018, 04:00:46 AM »
I'm programming a preset for the Behringer BCR2000. Some of the following also occurs while using the PFM2 Editor.

Sending sending NRPN and CC values for the Arp CLK parameter makes some parameters disappear from the page when all Arp parameters are being controlled with NRPN's.

Sending either NRPN and CC values for the Arp CLK will change the Arp BPM one increment at a time and change the Arp Direction to it's highest value.

Even stranger still, when I send NRPN and CC values for Division and Duration while still on the first arp page I get a garbled mess.

Will sometimes crash as well.

I've double checked the parameter's are not being sent values beyond their limit.

I've attached images below.

Thanks a lot for this message  :)

Anyone who doesn’t use the randomization feature please needs to.

I totally agree with this  ;)

Where is the general praise thread?  Please move this there.  Cuz this thing is amazing.  I want four of them.  Or individual outs on one of them, and four more.  Anyone who doesn’t use the randomization feature please needs to.  Thanks Xavier.  (PS shout out to that guy who built it for me!)

PreenFM2 / Re: PreenFM Noise issue; whining, tone, high pitch
« Last post by served on August 31, 2018, 11:16:23 AM »
Here is how we build our units to achieve the Shield + Inductor shielding solution against the High-pitch noise.
This is the maximum that can be achieved according to our todays knowledge.

Rev3 shield and Inductor mod is done on all the assembled PreenFM units including the Eurorack build.

Possible inductors that we use are from Mouser:
(I would suggest using the first one.)

The work involves de-soldering 1 SMD inductor and re-soldering a new one.
While doing this. You must keep the PCB as clean as possible. If you have not worked with SMD components before be very careful!
It can be done with a regular Solderingiron. Tweezers can also help.

Moddification looks like this:

The original inductor located L1

New Shielded Inductor. Orientation is not important.

Aluminium shield fixed to the screen.

Where did you get the Preen? Built yourself?

Various reasons:
1) Can you power it from Adaptor? maybe there is not enough current coming from your computer. It needs around 500mA to operate.
2) Something has come loose inside. The controller and screen are with connectors.
3) Other possible issues.

 I have a preenfm2 which was perfectly functioning until this morning. I connect it to my computer through a usb cable and after it turns on (I can see all the yellow squares filling the screen), it turns off immediately. Do you know what might be wrong?
