What filter is this, a DC filter or a resonant filter?

Sorry for the confusion  :)

That's 2 different things.
After Kuzma feedback i tried to add a DC filter inside the FM algorithm... It's to remove the 0Hz component in some operator to get rid of the random pitch shift it creates.
Most user won't ever know about this one. I'll advertise that as "smoother FM alogrithm". In the above firmware it's only implemented in ALGO1 TO 9.


Now in the new firmware, there's something i worked on the last couple of weeks, one effect slot per instrument (to chose form Low pass, high pass, bass boost and mix).
This one will be advertise as "FX section".

Hopes that's more clear.

I'll open a sticky thread with a beta version discussion later today.

Okay. This fx section thing, is it to do with the external controller pads on the PCB?

No. nothing to do with that.
You'll have effect inside the preenFM.

OK i'll upload the firmware soon.

Sounds very good. Are you managing to fit these in due to optimisation or free CPU cycles?

Yes, lots of optimisation in the last 0.9 firmware series.

Could handle 10 voices of 6 operotors in many cases (instead of 8 ).
But i find that  FX section + smoother FM + arpeggiator is more interesting.

Yeah, arp is good. I prefer FX of a more creative nature in sound design and that sounds like that's what you're doing. Reverbs and delays are easy to add after.
