Using the sustain pedal
« on: November 29, 2013, 04:03:13 AM »
Can someone tell me how to tell the PreenFM to respond to a sustain pedal (or hold switch)?  Couldn't find it in the manual but maybe I didn't look hard enough.

Thanks

I'm not sure i undertand your question.
What kind of sustain pedal are you talking about ?
A midi control change ?

Anyway, i think there's not support for that.

Sorry Xavier I got busy and forgot about this.  I have the Preen hooked to a Roland A90 and the sustain pedal is hooked to the A90 as well.  The sustain pedal works for all of the other synths connected to it but does not work for the Preen.

No sorry, the PreenFM does not respond to it.

Ouch!  Does the new version respond to sustain pedal input?

Thanks to your message, it's now on my PreenFM2 TODO list.
I'll try to add it to PreenFM1 firmware too if i can find some time.

Thanks,

Xavier

I've uploaded a firmware 2.01 here :

I assumed your pedal sends CC 64. Let me know if it now works ?

Xavier, sorry to bother you but I cannot find the instructions to update the firmware for the original PreenFM.  I tried the link in the Firmware thread but it is not valid.

Thanks
