preenfm2 and preenfm3 / Re: reinstalling firmware
« on: February 22, 2020, 10:59:31 PM »
Ok, I formatted the key, and it didn't work better..
So I tried with another key, and it worked..
So it simply was that the key was... oh my god !! dead ???????

Merci beaucoup Xavier.. et bonne soirée à toi..

The folder was created when I first installed version 2.06, I guess..
But it''s ok, I deleted everything, and created a new pfm2 folder..
No capital, the pfm2 folder is at the root of the USB key and is simply called pfm2..
inside the folder, are ;


There is no other folder, neither at the root, nor inside pfm2..

Should I format the USB key ?
Thanx a lot for your help..

Ok Xavier.. Thanx a lot.. But, when I do (2), = try to flash,  PreenFM2 keeps saying that there is no /pfm2/ directory, though I can see it when I do (1)..I have deleted the "build" directory, but that changes nothing..

Hello.. My answer will not help you more, cause I'm having troubles too, installing version 2.11..
I unzipped the zip file to pfm2.. I also have the "build" subfolder, ok ok..
But then what does "unmount before exit" ? Means that I must, on my computer,  click on "unmount drive safely" or whatever it is in English (Extraire le lecteur en toute sécurité)..
Ok, that's what I have done..
And then exit, and then I press the [op] button, and it says "no /pfm2/ directory"..

My drive is as follow:


Thanx to anyone who will take the time to help..
Have a good evening..

Did you ever dream that you would have a preenfm2 but you are not able to soulder anything ? Or you don't have time.. Or you're lazy.. or your soldering iron is dead..

It's beautiful, isn't it ?

Now it's your chance !!

I am willing to sell my BUILT AND WORKING PREENFM2..
Already built, for FREE..
Built a bit more than one year ago, tested, working, but then I didn't use it much..
In fact, I explored it a bit, tried a few things, and went back to my usual VSTs..

So, it seems clear that I will never really use it, even if I'm sure it's a great engine..
(Obviuosly, if it were a VST, I would almost always be on it, programming presets and playing music..)
(And btw, Xavier.. Or anyone having the answer.. Is there any reason why the Preenfm2 is not compiled as VST,  AU or LV2 ?)

Ok ok.. So, mine doesn't have the beautiful blue OLED.. And no ugly yellow OLED..
In fact, line has an LCD screen.. That's nice too.. But it won't fit in the usual box.. And that's the reason why I sell it without box..

So, it's a Preenf2, without box, and with an LCD screen.. You will decide to keep the LCD, or to buy and mount an OLED.. ANd you will have to buy or build a case..

Whatever.. I have paid it 140euros plus 10euros shipping..
And I will not ask any profit.. I will sell it back for that price (140+10), even if I spent time on it to build..
Isn't it a chance ?

So if you are ready to pay 150 plus shipping, you can contact me..
Pictures can be seen here  ;
Have a nice.. day ? night ?

preenfm2 and preenfm3 / Re: Preen 2 Parameter Sheet
« on: August 11, 2018, 02:29:39 PM »
Hello there..
Yes, I guess that what Lloyd Cole is looking for is a printable table with all parameters written, and a blank box close to each parameter, when he could write their value..
Like those 1980s sheets of paper we used for the DX7, we could find an empty one at the end of the user's manual..
Remember "Guitare & Claviers ?" They were publishing 10 DX7 presets, plus a few ESQ'1 and, I think, Juno2 presets, per months..

PreenFM2 is much more complex than the DX7.. More parameters, but also, the matrix.. And is not a definitely finished engine, can still evolve.. That would make such a sheet soon obsolete..
But sure useful in any cases,  when you are programming presets..

Have a nice time..

100% successful.. Thanx a lot Lokki..

Thanx for caring, Lokki.. I see I've not been clear..
My LCD doesn't show anything, except rows of faint squares..

Hello there..
My preenFM2 was working ok the last time I used it.. that might have been in june.. Then I parked it for a while, and took it again today.. And when I plugged an USB cable, running from my computer to the preen, I had a short flash of the blue LED, as usual, and a series of squares on my LCD screen.. I plugged earphones on one output, just like I had done before, and tried pressing INST and one of the buttons on the left, but had no sound in my ears..
So of course I need help..
Have a nice evening or day, or even both..

preenfm2 and preenfm3 / Re: PreenFM2 on Zynthian ?????????
« on: October 22, 2017, 08:45:55 PM »
There's so much to reply..

The question is not to know if there are 100 FM synth VST plugin on earths, and if they are better than PreenFM2 or not..
PreenFM2 is good.. Very good.. And I have one, so I will spend time trying to know how it works, until I'm able to get the best it can do, and to make presets for it..
And when I make good presets on my PreenFM2, I would like to be able to use them also on my Zynthian, if ever it's possible..

Great if some 100 FM VST plugins are good too.. If they are better, or even if they are worse, they might still be interesting options, ok..
But do I want to spend time trying to understand how 100 VST plugins work, how complicated and abscure is their UI, and how to get the best out of them ?? Or do I want to spend time making my presets with a tool that I know, and playing music ??

If PreenFM2 cannot be adapted to Zynthian, then it will still be time to have a look at NI FM8, or 9, or even 10..
IF EVER THEY CAN BE ADAPTED ON ZYNTHIAN, which is not sure as well..

For now, Zynthian runs a few engines.. mda epiano, Dexed, ZynAddSubFx, afo (amongst few others)..

Anyway.. Thanx Teevee for your comment.. The fact that I react against it doesnt mean it was a bad argument.. I understand your position.. Mine is simply different..

And thanx Xavier for your answer..

Have a nice time, both of you, and the rest of the world too..

Even if it is open source, I wouldn't want to ruin in any way, Xavier's business..
So I prefer asking..

Hello there.. Hello Xavier.. You didn't answer, and if you don't, I won't insist.. The question can be resumed to "would you allow me to ask around if someone could convert PreenFM2 into a Zynthian copatible engine ?? And then would you allow to ake it available to everyone ??"

And it sees that, in the sae tie, a second question arrives.. What about a VST version ??

I would understand if you'd chose to be protective and would wish the PreenFM2 to remain as it is.. I'd be very pleased if you'd accept it to be adapted in different format..

Have a nice weekend, you and everyone.. And enjoy the light..
