PreenFM2 / Re: Output volume vs polyphony..
« Last post by opus.quatre on May 16, 2017, 09:53:06 AM »
Ah yes, ok.. And I guess I will have less aliasing when the polyphonique is reduced..
OK. . Thanx Xavier..
 Bonne journée. .

Hi,

Nice to read you enjoy your preenfm2  :)
I never know how to answer to question that begins by "is it possible"....
Do you ask (1) if it's possible, (2) if it's easy to do, or (3) if i would plan to do it ?

1 - Yes it's possible, the firmware is open source.
The midi to audio conversion is done here :
https://github.com/Ixox/preenfm2/blob/master/src/midi/MidiDecoder.cpp#L286
So you have to modify the code to introduce a delay at this point. Requires a little research to do that.
Then the timers for each instrument must be added somewhere in the settings.
2 - Not very easy
3 - No. It will add some complexity in the menus and settings that is not worth it to my opinion.

Possible Alternative : for the instrument you want to introduce a delay
. Set all mix* params to 0.00
. Set a matrix row like this : env2 1.0 mix*
. Then select the modulation : "Free Env 2" like this : "<D> 0.00 5.0 No"
Where <D> is the delay before your sound will begin.

Pseudo delay effect : can be done by
. using one LFO to pan the sound in the matrix (lfo1 1.0 pan*)
. And the gate target matrix (with an other LFO twice faster) to make the sound hearable only when right or left.

This is how it works.
The voice mixer is 100% digital.

So it maximizes the number of actual bits for each used voice.
Same thing : instrument not used should have their number of voice set to 0 so that it does not take any room in the digital mixer.

Summary : for best resolution, only set the number of voices you really need for each instrument.

PreenFM2 / Feature request?
« Last post by Warmachine on May 16, 2017, 09:10:19 AM »
Hello!
I'very had the preenfm2 for a little over a year and am quite pleased with it, especially the 4 part multitimbrality. I'm wondering if it would be possible to the time ( in milliseconds ) that it takes for each instrument to play after each key press. If all 4 instruments on the same midi channel were using the same patch, then it could have a pseudo delay effect.

PreenFM2 / Output volume vs polyphony..
« Last post by opus.quatre on May 15, 2017, 05:51:44 PM »
Hello there..
Is it normal if I get a big difference in output volume, when I turn the polyphony "knob" ??
On my preenfm2, the output volume is decreasing, as long as I increase the polyphony, and vice versa.. Is it the normal behaviour ? Or is it just on mine ?

And still.. Enjoy your sun..

No worry Xavier..
I understand..
Have a nice day..

PreenFM2 / Re: Can't save to usb

Thanks for the details (i've modified your subjet).
Sounds like a bug.
Don't know if it's easily fixable as the USB library is the one from STM (the MCU manufacturer).

What you describe is of course possible, but it's a LOT of work.
No i won't work on that  ;)

You can chain 2 preenfm2. But they'll have to play different instrument.
Polyphony on one instrument cannot be expanded.

PreenFM2 / Re: Z-plane/Morph filter
« Last post by alien_brain on May 14, 2017, 10:37:29 PM »
yep, a 4 part vector fade could be realized with the right matrix settings and a decent controller joystick setup.  as theorized a while back.  this would include all capabilities of the voice  so you could fade between voices with differing filter types implemented.  just a simple crossfade however, not a strict morph.  but still...  on an fm synth?  sounds awesome!
