Xavier:
Hi PreenFM owners,

Firmwares are here :
http://xhosxe.free.fr/PreenFM/firmware/

How to upgrade is explained here:
https://sites.google.com/site/preenfm/firmwares

2.00 do not means it's bug free... If you find any bugs i'll make a 2.01  ;)
Totally compatible with VST 2.00.B3.


What's new in  2.00
. better (less obvious) cut of existing notes when a new note is triggered.
. adjust encoder timing for better turning acceleration (subtle change).

What's new in  2.00.B3
http://xhosxe.free.fr/PreenFM/firmware/BETA
. [fixed] LFO random now the same as in 1.72 (was higher in 2.00.B2)
. [fixed] Nrpn params fixed to be compatible with 1.72 and works with PreenVST 2.00.B3.
. [fixed] save preset when name length = 12 (no more weird last char).
. [clean] get rid of the old 1.10 upgrade format


What's new in  2.00.B2
. Fixed enveloppe when release was <= 5
. Fixed the LFO env4 problem one some notes.

What's new in  2.00.B1

. Something unexpected 2 weeks ago. Polyphony doubled !! Thanks Olivier (mutable-instruments guy) :-)
  4 voices for 6 operators algos, 6 voices for 3 ops algos, and 8 voices for 3 ops algos.
  The signal/noise ratio is not very good when number of voice > 4. The biggest advantage is  to have  4 voices for 4 & 6 operators algos.

. Enveloppe attacks available in matrix destination. One at a time or all together.
  Can not be changed once a sound is already triggered... but using velocity as source is nice.
  Using a slow LFO to modulate the Attack also give interesting results.

. Peformance row added in engine pages... Allow direct edit of CC1, CC2, CC3, CC4 (matrix control change sources).
  Typical usage : in live can be use to control several internal parameters at the same time.
  Can also be used to control external gear by using the new ECC as destination.
  Remarks : CC1-4 are not saved with the patch.

. Sinus variation tables ("s^2", "1/2s", "spops"), are now centered around 0.
  So they can be used as modulator without changing the carrier pitch... was a bit useless as modulator before.

. CC can now be sent to external gear by selecting one of the ECC in the matrix destination.
  Channel and control change numbers can be modified in the settings.
  Correct values in the modulation matrix to have 0-127 range in the ECC:
   . Source : CC1-4 / mul = 16 / Dest ECC1-4
   . source : LFO1-3 / mul = 8 / Dest ECC1-4
     LFO1-3 must have bias = 127 because they must be positive only.

 
. Possibility to go directly to one of the patch selection page when booting.
  In the setings, boot : "Default" (as before), "Bank1", "Bank2", "Bank3", "Bank4", "Internal".

. Better new note algo... sounds much better with long release patches.
  No more obvious release cut.

What's new in  1.72

. [Bug fix] matrix destination clean correctly when changed by midi (fixed saturation when scrolling matrix destination with active source)
. [Bug fix] persistent volume problem when scrolling through presets while playing
. [Bug fix] Sysex bank correctly ignored if not in right menu selection.

What's new in  1.71:

. [Bug fix] now you can load a bank  sending sysex from your PC

What's new in  1.70:

. [VST] Compatibility with the plugin PreenVST v0.4.
. [Bug fix] Midi compatibility with midi sources that uses runningStatus... (fix stuck notes).
. [Matrix] Key added in the matrix source list : allow tu use the midi note number in the matrix.
  As for velocity, the last pressed key is used.
  Also i put (127-note) in the matrix so that the high notes have a smaller value than the lower ones.
. [config] midi "Receive: None" now let modweel passes through, as well as bank select, all note off, all sound off.

What's new in  1.61:
. [fix] There were a NoteOn problem when several notes where played at the same time while other notes where in release state.

What's new in  1.60:
http://xhosxe.free.fr/PreenFM/PreenFM_MidiClock.mp3
. [MidiClock] activity on LCD
. [MidiClock] LFO oscillators frequency : after 15.3Hz you'll find MC/16, MC/8, MC/4, MC/2, MC, MC*2, MC*3, MC*4, MC*8
. [MidiClock] Step sequencer BPM : after 240 you'll find MC/4, MC/2, MC, MC*2, MC*4 (MC = external midi clock).
. [LFO Osc] sinusoid waveform added.
. [Matrix Destination] GATE added : new way of shaping your sound.
. [Midi] Midi latency improved (or should be improved, don't have any serious measures)...
. [Midi] Real midi thru - don't enable it when recording PreenFM midi out...
. [fix] midi indicator did not always blink as it should
. [fix] Step seq 6 : NRPN sent wrong params
. [fix] Step seq gates : in some rare situation they refused to change
. [fix] In Menu mode, values could show up on the LCD

What's new in  1.51:
- Bug fix : MidiClock make the audio engine stuturing

What's new in  1.50:
- 2 Step sequencers
- 4 additional rows in the matrix : 12 rows in total
- Test note added... Hold one second the back button when in edit mode

Thanks and enjoy :-)

Towel:
Wow..........................thank you.

maDMax:
when i will have christmas holidays i will test the new firmware, looking forward to this.

maDMax:
gave the 1.50b a first try. After flashing i needed 2 restarts then all went fine. the step sequencers are working as you described.  they make the preenfm extrem more flexible, sounding very good.
one thing that is very annoying. after loading a preset from the internal memory the screen shows "DONE" and when i press a key nothing happens. every time i think the preen hangs but after pressing more keys i come to a menu. why not after loading showing 2 seconds "DONE" and the go back to the engine screen?

Max   

Xavier:

Max, thanks a lot for the feedback.

Is the "Done" behaviour different from how it worked in 1.03 ?
Have you formated the EEPROM user banks  "Upgrade" or "All"...  in Menu->Conf->Format ?

While displaying "Done" the PreenFM expect you to hit "Menu" again... not very intuitive i agree.
Maybe any key should make it go back to the edit mode... or a time out as you suggest...
