preenfm2 editor 2.08.3
« on: October 28, 2017, 07:57:25 PM »
Source code as well as windows and macOS binaries are available here :

https://github.com/Ixox/preenfm2Controller/releases

For each OS, zip files contains the VST and the standalone version.

The editor is heavy to test, don't hesitate to report any problem or just say you're using it and it works under your OS.
That helps,
Thanks

Xavier

I was thinking to upgrade from Yosemite to Sierra and now I'm almost sure I should :)
It's really lovely to come up with so many updates on the PreenFM2 Xavier, it's constantly evolving.

Because it does not work on Yosemite ? What is the error message ?
I think i mix up with the deployment target in my macOS build.
It should work on older macOS version, i'll upload another binary for macOS later today.

I've uploaded a new zip for macOS pfmEditor.1.zip.
Let me know if that works with old macOS versions.
Another guy on facebook told me it does not work with Mavericks, i hope that fixes the problem.

Even better!

Yeah the previous version would not open, it had this "do not park here" sign in transparent grey on top of the icon, and when trying to open I would get the message "You can’t use this version of the application “pfm2Editor” with this version of OS X. You have OS X 10.10.5. The application requires OS X 10.11 or later."

The one you just gave works great on Yosemite.

But I wasn't too shocked, I have another synth (Roland JD-Xi) that got a user-made editor and the developer told me that architecture was really too different to make it work on Yosemite so it's been some time I assumed I would have to move on.

Fantastic work Xavier! I'm going to have a play with this as soon as I get some spare time later this week. My poor Preen is feeling a little neglected. I hope it functions okay with El Capitan, but you'll be the first to get an update if it doesn't. Which version would be best for Mac OS 10.11.6?

There's only 1 version now for the macOS.
I'm not a mac expert, i use the Juce library to code this editor, so i don't know what it's doing with the native macOS library.
Regarding the settings i chose, it should work on macOS 10.7 and newer.


There are lots of bug in the save/load states.
Don't use it to store your preset, save your presets on your preenfm2 and use the pull button of the editor to edit them.

I've checked in the 2 Makefile i used under Linux.
I think it's the best way to be sure binaries are linked correctly against the libs of your distro.

I have 2 linux distros, I could not have it compiling under the older one. It compiles fines under ubuntu Mate 16.04.

Go in Host/Builds/Linux and type make to build the standalone version.
The standalone version works fine.

Go in Plugin/Builds/Linux and type make to build the VST version.

I never tried VST plugin under linux before. I quickly downloaded the free Tracktion 6 for linux, but it complained not being able to inialiaze the VST.
What host do you use ?
