preenfm2 and preenfm3 / Re: demo of some of my patches
« Last post by superfake on January 15, 2021, 04:23:37 AM »
I mean that tracks with instruments (parts) were not previously dumped into audio and were not processed separately in any way. Here I am using Octatrack just as a midi sequencer for four (or less) instruments (parts). Then the audio from PreenFM2 goes to Strymon Bigsky and then is recorded. Only some maximization in the final. There is no more processing. Only careful adjustment of the parameters of each instrument. After all, FM synthesis gives you enough control over the sound spectrum, and flexible envelopes allow you to fine-tune the dynamics. Also, the excellent ability to control the panorama of the carriers allows you to do without chorus and other things. Even the delay can be simulated using automation. Of course, all this is not a panacea, but it gives a unique and interesting result.
 
All this means that at one point in time in each demo only one instance of PreenFM2 is playing - only one Combo with a maximum of four instruments. Although it may seem like more instruments are playing, this is because Octatrack controls some parameters ... in particular the carrier mix levels, their frequencies and other parameters. That is, one instrument (part) can sound like two or more instruments. For example, this is a good trick for drums, where one instrument (part) plays kick, snare and hat at the same time, you just need to control the carrier mixes in time. And Octatrack is doing this, controlling the MIDI CC. P-locks is a handy feature. Also in Octa, you can draw your own LFO shapes and then control various parameters to create additional rhythmic movements.

OT as a sequencer, PreenFM2, Bigsky and nothing else. Endless minimalism. 8)

Almost all demos use the Swell algorithm as a reverb ... it does not give tails from short sounds, so it can be used on the general mix. Although, this is not the best approach. PFM3 with separate outs would be a great solution.

Yes, absolutely all the drums in this playlist are synthesized in Preen. In "Flea King" too. Here kick and clap are one instrument with mix parameter automation.

I think the presets themselves will say more than I can write. ::)
But no problem case I will answer questions.
I will try to build a bank in the next couple of weeks.
Drum presets are also included.

Iskin (builder) assembled a synthesizer in a white case. I just made a gray stand on my CNC.

Thanks for the feedback and many thanks for the wonderful synthesizer!

I hope google translate hasn't misrepresented the meaning too much. My English is lame. :-[

I can hardly believe it  :o

I would really love if you can say more about how you did that.. That's super impressive !

What kind of processing did you add in adition to the reverb ?
"No sampling" ? "A maximum of four parts are played at one time" ? What does that mean ?
All drums from the preenfm2 ? Even in "Flea King" ?

That's a fantastic work you did with all those tracks.
They ALL (all !!!) sound very good and very unique !
"I am preened" is beautifull !

Thanks for sharing, that, and yes a bank from this sound would be a dream.
I'm not aware of a drum sound bank ?

Any info about the case we can see on the picture ?

preenfm2 and preenfm3 / demo of some of my patches
« Last post by superfake on January 14, 2021, 07:03:38 PM »
Hi! Here is a demonstration of some of my patches.
Only PreenFM2 sounds. Including all drums. No sampling. A maximum of four parts are played at one time.
All midi from Octatrack. Reverb - Bigsky.
https://soundcloud.com/fingersdog/sets/preenfm2-demos

There are two patches playing here, but all drums are made in Octatrack from a noise sample.

After a while, I will put together a bank with some patches and put them in free access.
Insanely addicting synth. ))

I agree with Lokki.

Also, the code is available for anyone to try to implement themselves if they are in a rush.

preenfm2 and preenfm3 / Re: PreenFM2 R6 Which MIDI pins to solder?
« Last post by Xavier on January 14, 2021, 08:39:33 AM »

Yes that's how the midi DIN5 should be soldered.
You can see the IN 5/4 and OUT 2/5/4 pins labeled on the PCB.
So you just have to wired this pins to the correct DIN5 pins.

then i checked the continuity of the sd traces : it were good until the sd socket itself, not so well soldered.
After resoldering the sd card socket, i now have a fully working preenfm3  8)

Thanks for the support, and for the preenfm3 ! i love it very much, the sequencer is funtastic and the filters sounds very nice in poly :D

Nice !!  :)
Happy to see everything is solved !

preenfm2 and preenfm3 / PreenFM2 R6 Which MIDI pins to solder?
« Last post by hitachii on January 14, 2021, 02:47:21 AM »
Hi, I haven't found the direct answer to this elsewhere on the forum. On the directions, three pins go to the MIDI out, while two go to the MIDI in jacks. Which pins do those connect to?I found the documentation linked at the Teensy MIDI page here: https://www.pjrc.com/teensy/td_libs_MIDI_sch_t3.png

Is the PreenFM2 R6 supposed to be wired the same as pictured here? Wanted to be absolutely sure! Thanks.

i don't think your criticism is at the right place here. xavier is a single person doing this! no reason to be so "hateful"...

btw. there are many synth companies that sell synths that are no longer actively maintained, even if there are bugs in the firmware...xavier always had open ears to such reports and tried to fix those.

 nice to hear that you found your synth, happy patching with the virus!

so theres no time for preenfm2 now that 3 is out?  even though i just bought 2 more at full price and pushed for the idea of unison in the first place?  maybe you would rather i buy a 3?  2 is old news now?  btw i just bought a virus polar and i can see now that preenfm just doesnt have what i wanted in the first place.  im selling my preenfm collection and moving onwards with the sound i was always looking for but didnt know it.
