The preset didn't have more than 13 characters.  It did save on the second attempt so it wasn't an issue just more of an intriguing message.  :)

The save state is a useful feature to me as I can save the patches separate from the preenfm as not all of them get used.  It also makes it easy to organize and move them around.

As well, the preenfm MIDI out port isn't working at the moment.   :(

I got this message today when trying to save a sound (and it failed)...    I thought it was appropriately alien-like ;D


Well, after 2 days of using the stand-alone, I can report no crashes.  Thanks!  :)

Thanks.  I'll give it a go.

Thanks.  I'll try it in VST mode as well.
2.  Basically, if I use it for some time while saving and loading 'states', it will crash... either while saving, loading or changing a value.  Unfortunately, I have found nothing repeatable.  I can use it for hours and nothing.  The last couple of times I have received a 'BEX' event.  Which, apparently, is a buffer overflow error of some sort.  I've just turned on 'run as Administrator'.  I'll see if that helps.

Here is the last 'Windows Error Reporting' Event Viewer message: (for what it's worth)

Fault bucket , type 0
Event Name: BEX
Response: Not available

Sorry, another small bug I noticed...
When I set the 'Destination' in the matrix to 'All Op Frequencies', and save the state.  If I then load that back in the editor the display reverts to 'Op6 Frequency'.  The matrix is still 'All Op Freqs'.

Hmm...  I noticed the click while making the patches.  I thought I got rid of it.    ??? 
Never the less, I like the fix, thank you.


preenfm2 and preenfm3 / Patches... (Funky Bank 2 - Boogalu)

So I'm having fun creating a new bank.
To start, here are 34 Bass Patches:
(No velocity yet.)

Edit: updated attachment
Now 64 patches...
(Still no velocity.  Some no aftertouch.)


Well, yes, I'm an idiot.  ::)   Sorry.  The digital noise is obviously there and hidden by the mixer noise floor.  It looks a lot like yours, unsurprisingly.
Unity gain into my MOTU 828 MII.

Sound from the Preen is definitely loud and can clip the input on mono.
Clement had a good point I sort of dismissed.  Crawling back to my hole...  :(

Thinking about it.  The noise floor in my screenshots is a lot higher than yours.  The mixer noise might be covering up the digital noise.  I'll pull out the rack tomorrow and plug the preen in direct and take some more measurements.

It looks like I ordered on December 26th 2013...


So, yes.  That one.  :)  Is that the same or newer?


I don't think the background noise is too important to match up as long as we can measure 'with' screen against 'without screen'. (I am currently running through a mixer) As you can see, my 'full volume' screen measurement matches up pretty closely with what Xavier was seeing.  Strangly, my base frequency is 250 hz vs 150 hz.  And, I agree, full volume blue OLED is unusable.

What surprised me was the drop in the digital noise when the output volume drops 5-10%.  The noise remains at that level until zero volume.  I might try adding a small resister after the volume knob.


Hopefully, this is interesting.
(I had to work out how to use Voxengo SPAN even though I've had it for many years! :)  )
Here we go...

My Blue OLED  ;D

Full Vol:

Reduced Vol (95%?):

Maybe a new product?  Patent it!
So, the noise is a proximity issue.  Interesting.

My analyser tells me the offending frequencies on the blue OLED are 2-3kHz!
Wav file below... regular noise, sine waves, full volume noise.

Not terrible noise, but now you've got me thinking I should upgrade to yellow.  Though, I do like the red, white and blue colour scheme. 'Vive la Francais!'  ;D
