PreenFM2 / Re: any way to select timbres via midi?
« Last post by observer on May 22, 2019, 05:58:55 AM »
would it be possible to add a dedicated cc message for switching timbres? how intensive would it be to implement such a thing?

That's the second part of my previous reply  ;)
I think it would be easier to remember the 4 instruments  or to press the "Inst" button.

ah! sorry, I misunderstood. Still not quite sure I understand what you mean by remembering the 4 instruments.
I guess the point is lost on me as I'm not a coder (yet).. sorry if I'm missing something obvious.

I love this synth, but I find jumping between patches and timbres to be the most cumbersome part of working with the preenfm2.

I can imagine a problem with that idea:  I'm sequencing all four timbres simultaneously, usually with some cc automation. This would probably result in the screen just flitting between timbres with each channel's most recent cc event, no?

Yes, not very convenient.

thanks for the reply!

Ok I see what you're saying. I'm not yet up to speed on coding, but I'm trying to learn.

I guess I phrased the question badly.. whay I'm asking is whether there's a way to select which voice is showing on screen via midi message.

If not, any idea if this might be possible to implement?

No there is nothing to do that.
Maybe the easiest way would be to switch to the last instrument that was updated by midi.
Should be a modification here :
https://github.com/Ixox/preenfm2/blob/master/src/hardware/FMDisplay.cpp?ts=4#L637
Would need to call newTimbre(timbre) in a else condition, and see what happen...  ;)
I just worry when several instruments are updated at the same time.

To have a dedicated CC to change current timbre, that should be implemented  in the midi decoder class:
https://github.com/Ixox/preenfm2/blob/master/src/midi/MidiDecoder.cpp
But it would required a little code to propagate the new current timbre.

already lost my data from sequencer, laptop died on me half a year ago too.
so yea, im pretty desperate right now.

 :o
I can send a USB key for free if you haven't ordered it yet... Let me know.  ;)

I don't understand why you need the EXACT same USB stick.
Anyway, most of them are ARETOP 1Gb or 2Gb Usb key.

a link to the place where i can buy this EXACTLY usb stick that comes with the PCB so i can use mine as donor.. high voltage problems not sure where could i get those as i live in germany since last year and the house was build 4 years ago with the best electrics stuff i could find here. i just hope its pure coincidence/unluck that the regulator failed after installing the new oled and case, anyway im going to install a fuse on this thing. if i ever recover my patches.

but a failing regulator shouldnt destroy usb stick that easy...

It depends on what broker the regulator. A too high voltage could leak to the 5v pin and goes directly to the USB stick  :(

ill need a link for that usb stick so i can swap the nand, if i lost all my work, im dead

I don't understand what you need here.
