Ah, ok.. Figured as much, but thought I might be missing something. Thanks for getting back to me! I love the preenfm2 so much!

I'm afraid there's nothing for a quick save when you load preset with program change....
(which i agree is not very cool).

PreenFM2 / Re: Octatrack and Preen Combo Change
« Last post by Xavier on July 31, 2018, 12:19:29 PM »
Hello,

"Program change" loads Single Preset, combo or DX7 preset depending on the values of Bank select (CC#0) and Bank Select LSB (#32) it received before.

Combo can be received on any midi channel instrument : 1 to 4 by default.
It then replaces all 4 instruments.

Single preset and DX7 preset replaces the instrument of the midi channel recevied.

I agree it's not very straightforward. Specially because Bank Select and Bank Select LSB are stored independently for each instrument :
https://github.com/Ixox/preenfm2/blob/feb79fb2b4a03e4668ef5e8ef2540f42f0b25f6c/src/midi/MidiDecoder.cpp#L325?ts=4

If you can, try to send Bank select (CC#0), Bank Select LSB (#32) and program change each time you want to load a new preset or combo.

If that does not work let me know exactly what you send, what behaviour you have, and what you would expect.

Thanks

PreenFM2 / Re: Octatrack and Preen Combo Change

Hello!!

Thank you for the responses from both of you and sorry for the delay. I've finally gotten around to trying this extended firmware and seems like it might do the trick! It's started to work great for me being able to change combos remotely from the Octatrack.

One issue I'm running into, it seems like the PReen only listens to program changes from the octatrack on the incoming midi channel 1 I.e. if I send program change from Midi Channel 1 to Preen the fm listens to program change as combo change. But, if I try to send a program change from midi channel 2 the preen will not change its combo based on that program change. Is there a setting I'm missing to allow this? I'm glad I've gotten this far but hope not to have to reprogram everything to suit.

Thanks for the help!

oh, I see.

I'm using a sequencer that sends program changes and has knobs mapped to midi cc for quick editing of basic parameters for the four separate voices. So I guess when voices are loaded via PC messages it complicates things.. hmm

I really wish there was a quick save function that didn't require menu diving to overwrite a patch.

PreenFM2 / Re: High frequency tone coming from hardware itself!

Hi! I've seen plenty of people in this forum complain about a high frequency tone coming from the audio out of their preenfm2, but I couldn't find any thread related to this issue...
Is there anything I can do about this?

Hi,

The main thread is here :

Sorry about that, I saw the topic post and that you mentioned "audio path" and thought it was only about the audio-based tone, not the hardware one. My apologies for the redundant thread.

Hi,

You should be able to press "menu" several times in a row, and it should repeat the same command as the previous time.
So once you select Save + bank + your preset, "Menu" is the only button to press for the next save of the same preset.

(I cannot verify now, but i think if you just load a preset, the SAVE action you do just after will select by default the same bank and presets)

Hope that makes sense ?

PreenFM2 / quick save?
« Last post by observer on July 23, 2018, 02:16:04 PM »
Hi, I'm probably missing something obvious here, but is there any way to quickly save changes made to a patch?

I've been navigating back through the file system to locate the patch I've edited in order to save it to the same slot. But this is pretty tedious to be honest. With many banks, it's easy to get lost.

Please let me know if there is a simpler way  :) thanks!
