rebooting the preen from menu?
« on: April 04, 2019, 01:44:20 PM »
Hi,

I'm new to this place, just got my preenFM (eurorack edition, Van Daal Electronics). So far I'm amazed by it capabilities. intuitiveness included.

Sometimes however some of the instruments don't make any sound (while they previously did). Solution is rebooting. For now, until I find the real cause I can live with this reboot sequence, but it requires me to powercycle my whole Eurorack, which is a bit ... well losing setting sin other modules etc...
Could there be a reboot menu item? This would also be superhandy to eg. quickly back up some settings for a project I'm working on without having to powercycle or unplug the usb

Second great improvement would be a subdirectory structure in the menu dor DX7 presets... so you can have more than 255 .. (just asking :)

Hi,

Glad to read you like your preenfm2.

When an instrument does not make any sound (which should not happen), you can :
. Check the number of voice has not been set to 0 by a new preset you loaded for an other instrument.
. Press INST+MENU at the same time, this resets the audio engine.
If you lose sound and can reproduce please share the steps.

Presets are currently limited by RAM.
Bank names are preloaded so that the UI is more responsive. 
With 255 banks you can have 255*32 = 8160 presets.

Ok,


note taken I'll see if I can reproduce, still exploring/learning
It's not the 0 voice problem


but suspecting it is a parameter somewhere in the preset I change or modulate wrong at some point

Hi.

If you can. Please send us somekindof description or guide how to make the Preen freeze.
There has been few people reporting Freeze issues. But its hard to diagnoze or solve it. It looks like random on some cases. It is also unclear where its happening in the Preen.

Xavier and I have our own Euro PreenFM units that we can abuse.
