PreenFM1 (the blue one) / Using the Preen a LOT in a new project
« on: July 16, 2012, 12:22:07 AM »
Check it out. I'm making an ambient track everyday and most days using the preen in some capacity. :) Quite versatile little dood. It's also probably the only Preen in existence that lives in a cardboard enclosure hahaha.

Here's the blog. >>

There is also a podcast in the iTunes store if you're into that.

PreenFM1 (the blue one) / Original sources for parts
« on: March 17, 2012, 11:53:08 AM »

I've finally gotten my Preen working, after some issues related to my shoddy craftsmanship :D

I was wondering where the original button parts came from. I have done quite a bit of digging but I really can't find the same rectangular button covers that the kit has. The only ones I can find are the ugly round ones. I think they won't even work as the buttons are right next to each other, and the buttons would have no space between for the function labels. Is there some place that specializes in nice looking knobs and button covers?

Also strangely enough i had issues finding the correct audio jack :/ Is it a mono jack, or a stereo one?

Thanks! Preen + five12's Numerology is really fun stuff :D

PreenFM1 (the blue one) / flashing firmware from a mac?
« on: February 04, 2012, 05:46:23 PM »
So I finally got the board put together and it looks great! My solder skills are also a bit crap though haha.
Since I sourced most of my own parts I don't have the pre-flashed maple mini. Has anyone tried getting the firmware on the board from a mac yet? I see on the leaf labs site that I can DL the IDE, but I'm not sure that's what I need really.

I have access to a PC at the school I work at, but that means I have to wait until Wednesday to flash it. :)


PreenFM1 (the blue one) / Working on a sheet metal enclosure. :)
« on: January 22, 2012, 12:54:29 PM »
So I bought just the PCB and hard-to-find parts from Xavier and now I've got all the rest of the parts sourced.
I found a company here (prague) that does water jet cutting of sheet metal, so I'm now developing a metal enclosure case for Preen :) It's a bit slow going due to a new baby :D but once it's done I'll post up the drawing here for anyone else to use.

I'm trying to make it a single flat-cut sheet that can be bent by hand. It will also have wooden side panels.

PreenFM1 (the blue one) / Buying only PCB?

Hi everyone,

Preen looks amazing! I love little boxes like this. :D

Is there any chance of selling the PCBs loose from the whole kit? Or possibly the components + PCB? I'd love to build one in my own case.

Great project!
