PreenFM2 / Re: User wave forme ??
« Last post by Xavier on March 30, 2017, 10:30:26 PM »
Interesting question   :)
The user waveforms are loaded from the USB drive to the RAM when booting.
The limit is the available RAM of the CPU so i'm afraid it cannot be discussed ;)
The waveform is not stored with the preset, if you use a user waveform and modify it, that will modify your how your presets sound.

PreenFM2 / User wave forme ??
« Last post by opus.quatre on March 30, 2017, 06:54:09 PM »
Hello there..
Why is the number of user waveforms limited to 6 ??
Sure it's better than on a DX7..
Is it for technical reasons and then, this limit can't be changed ?? Or is it just a choice, and it can be discussed and modified ??

Second question is : when I use one of them in a sound,  is the waveform stored with the preset data, or am I supposed to always leave this waveform on the USB key, so that the preset can call it when needed ??

Enjoy the sun..

What firmware are you running?
PreenFM2 / Re: Saving preset into empty Bank/Combo slot

Thanks, guys. It's funny, I had notifications disabled, so I hadn't seen your replies until now as I'm logging on to say that I figured it out. I even went through the same steps, first checking the USB stick, reformatting, trying a second stick, and then I played with the menus a bit more and finally discovered that you must first create a Bank/Combo in Tools > Crea *before* you can save into it. I hadn't expected that extra step, but I'm glad to be up and running now.

Xavier, adding a line like the following at the beginning of 2. Save in the manual might help other newcomers like myself:

Presets can be saved only into preexisting Banks or Combos. To save a preset in an empty slot, you must first create a Bank or Combo in that slot by going to Tools > Crea. Once you have created a Bank or Combo slot, you will find it under Menu > Save.

thanks for the reply.

it does this no matter what the preset is. if the notes are played together in a chord, the same problem exists. just explained it linearly for the sake of explaining the problem. after 6 tones, the tuning gets weird.

I will share the default combo later today if you think that will help.

Not sure what it is.
Can be the preset that modify the tune over time.. When play one by one it's detuned, when played together it's tune.
Can you share your preset ?
Easiest way is to savethe default combo : Menu>save>deflt>Save.
Then plug the USB to your computer. Swith the preenfm2 on while pressing ENG. Press ENG again to access the stick from you computer.
The USB stick should be visible from your windows/mac/Linux machine.
And share here your /pfm2/DFLTCMBO.pfm.
That's the combo loaded when you boot.

A pure sin played alone can be noisy at low volume.

Set voice to 1 in Instrument 1, chose algo 1, and Mix1 to 1.00
Set it to 0 for instrument you don't use. I2, I3, I4.
And set Velo to 0. So that the wave is always at max volume.
If the sin is now OK then you have a normal behaviour.

All is digital and done on 18bits....
So the more voice you add the lower definition you'll have per voice or per carrier operator.
What you hear is the limit of the DAC.
But if you optimize by reducing the voices to the number of voices you really use, it should be fine.

Thanks. It's fixed now.
Dropbox recently changed the way we have to share files, which created lots of dead links...

The app should be compiled in Host/Builds/Linux/build/
