PreenFM2 / Re: midi offset etc, combo mode idea
« Last post by lokki on September 07, 2017, 09:08:43 AM »
I'll have to work seriously on a 2.08.
Don't know when though  :-\

ok, xavier, i'm getting impatient, haha...

do you have any suggestion where i could start? maybe adding the menu entries in the instrument selector menu? i could not find it in the "normal" ui, but i probably did not look close enough...

haha, lock is a strong word yes.  ;D

of course you can get back on track with the encoders :-)

i will push the global channel thing to my GitHub as well...

as i said i will be very happy to help you out when you have time to start working on 2.08

Hello Yan,

100% agreed.
It would be even better to be able to modify ALL carrier enveloppe at the same time.
And independently all modulator enveloppes at the same time.

Don't know how to do that properly in the preenfm2 control UI.

"Lock" ?
OK but you can simply turn back from 5 to 1 with the preenfm2 encoders.
Yes i like your mode to controll all channels from 1. It's usefull in many situations.

I'll have to work seriously on a 2.08.
Don't know when though  :-\

Thanks, that's small but very interesting inprovement and it keeps all compatibility with previous presets.
Nice :)

bonjour et merci pour votre réponse.

j'ai acquis mon Preenfm2 d'occasion..peut être que je me suis fais un peu avoir.
et malheureusement je suis bien incapable de tester une résistance (pas de multimètre aucune connaissances électronique..)

du coup je modifie chaque preset que je sauvegarde à nouveau, ça fonctionne mais c'est pffff...
PreenFM2 / Preenfm2/Bank editor little suggestion

Hello Xavier,

I have a suggestion for a little update : would it be possible to a shortcut on the PreenFM2 (or maybe in the bank editor only, if it's more simple) that would allow to modify the same parameter for ALL the operator at once? I don't think it's possible a the moment, if i'm not wrong.

I personnaly often tweak operator envelopes, especially the release rates to turn long release sounds to short ones. But doing the same manipulation to the 6 operators is sometimes a bit long (ok, i admit i could live with it  ;)).

PreenFM2 / Re: Edisyn Patch Editor for PreenFM2
« Last post by feijai on August 30, 2017, 06:50:14 AM »
Writing a patch editor for a synth in *ANY* toolkit is hard because you'll have to do many of the following: (1) lay out the widgets (2) write the patch dump parser (3) write the patch dump emitter (4) write the code to issue requests for patch dumps etc. (4) write the code to send individual parameter changes (5) write the code to respond to individual parameter changes made on the synth. 

All synths do these things in completely different ways, have lots of bugs in their communication protocols, etc.  And to be complete you'd need to write separate editors for single-mode and multi-mode etc.

That being said, in Edisyn I tried really hard to make patch editors relatively easy to code, while at the same time providing a lot of flexibility so you can handle the particular weirdness of the synth you're dealing with. 

And Edisyn provides a whole lot of built-in features that you get for free: lots of widgets, MIDI handling facilities, CC or NRPN mapping, pass-through from a controller, saving and loading sysex files, and a host of exploratory synth programming options, like variable randomization and mutation, patch merging and recombination, nudging your patch towards other patches, and (soon to be released) a full-featured hill-climber.

BTW, you mentioned the Microwave. Edisyn already happens to have good-working patches for the Microwave II, XT, and XTk.  Not the Microwave I: I don't own one.

one potential problem with this setup is, that you can "lock" yourself out of the preenfm. say you change from a combo with channel 1 2 3 4 to a combo with channel 5 6 7 8 via program change on channel 1. you can then not change back on channel one, but you have to change to channel 5 to get back. a solution would be to have a global midi channel for program change etc. (i did a simple mod already that does this, although it does not filter any messages out)
