I had a new top made to suit my OLED.

Hey, very nice one...  :D
You could have ordered only the small part around the LCD to fit the OLED.

No... it's better like this much more unique ;-)

True. But then I like red instead of blue :)

My SLR always seems to make everything look so much nicer than it is.

Two working preens and a 3rd one in progress (I ordered 1 PCB and got a freebie). I'm going to give one to a musician friend.

Three Shruthis, 1 x Programmer with Polivoks and SMR4, 1 x 4 Pole Mission, 1 x Digital FX board. I have a CEM board and one with SSM which I've given to a friend.

1 x Ambika with 3 voice cards, another 3 voicecard PCBs on the way.

SammichSID and MB8562.

I started to build the Midibox-FM and have a working one, just no buttons or LEDs. Lost interest in building that lol.

WOW... nice list.  :D

Do you think it would be interesting to control the SMR4 filter from the PreenFM ?
That would mean adding a row in the engine part fort the CutOff and Resonnance and
having them in the matrix destination list...
and save them with the patch...

That shouldn't be complicated, excect maybe to convert the 3.3V to 5V.
Or modifying the SMR4 to deal with 0V-3.3V PWM.

Could be handy. But any FM synthesis purist would say you don't filter FM sounds :) but to hell with them.

An internal filter would be great!  Though, I'm already doing this externally with the Shruthi through the ECCs. 
Also, the Shruthi filter boards each contain a VCA, so you would need to control that too... or set it wide open.

@6581punk: That's why that would be the only synth to propose that. 

@funkyfli : I understand now why you aked for the ECC .
The VCA would open by default, and available in the matrix for any kind of tremolo...

The Yamaha FS1R had filtering, it was a sort of format/FM synth.

I meant FM / real analog filtering.  ;)

I assume the FS1R has digital filtering...
I'd love to play with a FS1R by the way.... Seems like i'm not the only one regading the second hand market price of this machine....

TK has a CEM filters on his MBFM and it sounds pretty darn good!

(last two demos at the bottom)

True, but I imagine the FS1R has a lot of tricks. Yamaha continued where they had left off with FM.

The whole analog/digital argument probably is less important with FM as there's never been any mass market analog FM of any complexity.

The FS1R is a good 12-14 years old now and was never that popular, it was just too hard to edit with the front panel.
