PreenFM2 / Re: New PreenFM2 user, old PreenFM2

Hi Xavier, thanks for the help.

Hi Sammy,

Firmware 1.B7 ? Ouch !
Flashing the firmware is the first thing you should do.
Download latest firmware 2.07, put it on the USB stick (can be done without opening it with firmware 1.10) and flash it.
It's explained here : http://ixox.fr/preenfm2/manual/upgrade-firmware/
I'll do that first.

The very first version of the preenfm2 had a volume that can be noisy when you turn it.

Ah, no problem, I intend to control it mainly via midi so it's not too much of a big deal.

Do you power it through USB ?
If yes, try an other one, some are noisy.

Yes I do, via a hub, ill try it via the PC itself.

Thanks again Xavier, I've been after a PreenFM for quite a long time and I've got to say it was worth the wait! :)

Cheers,


Sammy

Hi,

Glad to say that I am a new PreenFM2 (hi!) owner. Picked one up on Ebay but the seller did not really give an honest description IMHO. "Excellent condition, all up to date).

The little box is in need of some severe TLC.

First the bootloader is at 1.10.
The firmware is at 1.B7.

Hardware wise things are not perfect.

The volume pot is wobbly and there's a humming noise on the line outs.
The volume level is a little erratic and can "crackle" randomly when adjusted.

Any advice to fix the above would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,


Sammy

Oh.. thanx Xavier.. in fact I have looked at the windows editor and didn't see..
OK. . So at least there is a possibility to have a global decay key follow.. individual would be great,  but it's already very nice..
But what is "decay" ?? Rate 2 ?? Rate 3 ?? Both ??
Have a nice time..

Hi Thierry,

There is a "Dec*" destination for "all enveloppe decay" available since firmware 2.05.

Are you talking about something else ?

PreenFM2 / Yamaha Sysex files for DX5
« Last post by served on April 26, 2017, 08:14:20 AM »
Hello,

I have seen people asking about the sysex files and PreenFM.
I have an opportunity to work with a Yamaha DX5.

It was broken and not functional.
I have managed to restore most of it. So now its playing and its a gem.
But I have some trouble getting the factory sysex files as the memory was corrupted on this one.

Do you know if there is a patch available of the original DX5 soundbanks?
I can upload them over MIDI. I have no cartridges.
The interface is still a bit confusing to test it out so it would be easy to have the factory sounds available.

Thanks!
Ardi.
