reset to default, waveform .txt, arpgeggiator toggle?
« on: September 14, 2017, 11:01:11 PM »
Hi, I should have my preenfm2 in a couple days [now have] and have been going through the manual before receiving it. I have a couple questions and apologize for my level of ignorance.

Arpeggiator:  I'd like to be able to turn arp function on and off while playing.  so I wonder if there is an Arp. on/off toggle, or is it necessary to navigate to the Edit>Arp menu to turn Arp. on and off?

Less important, I'm unclear on waveforms which can be imported as .txt files, speciifically if there's a freeware converter in which I could draw or import curves which would be converted into the proper format files for import into preen? OK thx!

Hi,

No arpeggiator toggle. You have to turn the encoder "Arpeggiator>Clk" To "Off".
If your keyboard has some programmable button you can send a NRPN message (0,28) to 0.

Some users had some success using Audacity to turn wav file into preenfm2 format :

There are some examples here :

Thanks! Good references for waveform texts.

Got the Preen, excited especially about 8 voice polyphony with Scala scales!

Operator editing also looks novel and interesting.
-----------------------------------
I am not getting a reset to default value when holding down Menu button and turning the knob for its parameter, also is there some other way to reset without powering down? Thx
