hi stelpa,

what features were you hoping for?

global midi channel and hertz mode already are in 2.08.

program change mod would be easy to readd, EDIT: a quick try with usercc failed since xavier changed somethings in that regard...
USERCC is readded, easy enough :-)
that being said, i'm working on some new extensions, currently on the 8timbres branch. will be easy to remerge into the standard firmware.

features coming:

-global tune (tune the preenfm from 435 to 444 hertz)
-constant value for the matrix which enables you to transpose instruments by applying a constant to o*fq...
-program change mod is still there :-)

Oh, I didn't realize those features had been added to 2.08, they weren't mentioned in the changelog I don't think. That's awesome! I'd love if USERCC was re-added, and global tune sounds very nice, but I think I'll use the 2.08a version in the meantime - I was mostly looking for hertz mode, so that's good to know that it's still there. Thanks Lokki :)

here is a new extended firmware with the following additions

this is the 8timbres version (8 mono instruments), not the normal 4timbres version. a 4timbres version will follow.

extensions:

*global tune:
tune your preenfm reference a from 435 to 444 hz, finally you can play with classical musicians :-)

*constant value as modsource: a constant value as modsource allows you to offset any moddestination. i use it to offset some instruments by one or two octaves...

still in this firmware, as seen before :-)

usercc: choose a midi cc from 0 to 126 and use it as a modsource
program change mod: choose what program change does on the preenfm: preset change, combochange, dx7 bank...

Hey Lokki! I hope I didn't seem rude not responding to such a kind thing, making a custom firmware - I simply had no idea you responded until I found this post by chance, I never received a notification!

Just wanted to let you know that both the new firmwares are working great, thank you so much for doing that! PreenFM has such a lovely userbase :)

Thanks again

~Stelpa

Hey Lokki - I hate to bother you again, but would it be possible to update these firmwares to version 2.08b, as the envelope problem seems pretty nasty. If not, could you tell me what modifications to make so I can attempt figuring out how to compile myself?

Thanks a bunch, again I'm sorry for bothering.

i will update the firmware, the change seems easy enough. give me a couple of days, i am a bit busy at the moment. if you don't hear back again, don't hesitate to ask again.

Hi all, this is pretty awesome! I just ordered my first PreenFM2 and am just waiting for it to get here. 
I was guessing it was opensource, but I just bought it without knowing, and finding out about all of this is just great!
I will need some time to try the standard, then want to try the 8 timbre one, but I may want to help expand it out too if I can.
I code in many languages and the src looks approachable. This is exciting!
I've got some ideas, but I want to try the basics first and then see what I think is useful.
Thanks for all your work!
