No problemo, j'en ai profité pour refaire des tests moi même, en utilisant les fonctions de rappel de Program Change dans Ableton.
Hé ben une fois de plus ils auraient pu faire mieux niveau communication avec appareil externes...

Les Banques, Sous-Banques et Programmes sont numérotés de 1 à 128 et non 0 à 127, donc il faut faire +1 partout!

Pour appeler le Combo numéro 2 de la sous-banque 0 ça nous donne dans Ableton:

- Bank 2 au lieu de 1
- Sub 1 au lieu de 0
- Pgm 3 au lieu de 2

Désolé je squatte ton sujet, mais on ne sait jamais ça peut servir à d'autres ;)

Yep, I noticed there were no full kits available anymore right now ;)

I should really do a video to demo some patches... also, as I'm using mine pretty often, some PreenFM sounds will definitely be on a few records & soundtracks within the few months!

My pleasure! Ah ah, glad the reference name is paying off, giving a preset the right name is 20% of the sound, I should not neglect this  ;D
A lot of them are just tests or unfinished, but it's always nice to have some stuff to start with.
I'll post here any updates so that they follow on the website as well.

I just uploaded an extended version, same it's pretty rough and not polished, but why not sharing?

C'est expliqué sur la page dédiée au MIDI du manuel dans mon souvenir ;)

Bonjour bonjour,

Il faut suivre l'architecture suivante: dans ton dossier "pfm2", tu dois créer un dossier "dx7" dans lequel tu peux mettre les fichiers sysex. S'il sont ailleurs, le PreenFM2 n'y aura pas accès.
Je ne vois pas de .bnk dans cette archive…

J'espère avoir bien compris ton problème ;)

Comme il est écrit, l'éditeur VST n'est pas compatible avec Ableton.
Ou plutôt c'est Ableton qui n'est pas compatible, vu qu'ils ne prennent en charge que les messages MIDI de base (pas de SysEx ni NRPN…).

I have no idea if this is accurate for the Preen, but I'd be curious… thanks a lot for sharing this, that will be useful!

Check chapter 2 of the manual ;)
In FM Synthesis, you often refer to an oscillator as "operator".

Shape :
This define the waveform that the oscillator is creating. Pure FM snthesis only use sin waveform.
PreenFM even propose a noise (rand) waveform very usefull to create percussive attack or to add noise to your sound.

You can chose for each operator independently between sin, saw, square, noise and 3 sinus variations.

And the line just above this one answers your other question:
The available filters are (in firmware 1.04) : Low pass 2nd order, High pass, Bass boost, Band Pass and crusher.

Be aware that there is only one filter, you won't trigger a filter per voice, each time you play a key the envelop of the filter will trigger with all the sound getting through it.

The code of PreenFM2 is available so you can definitely mod anything you want if you have the skills.

Although it's a mess, I feel like sharing some presets that I use. I didn't come up with all of them: some of them are straight DX7/sysex imports, others copycats of DX7 presets, some inspired by the default presets of the Shruthi (4 & 15) and there is also a preset that widdly shared on the forums (12 & 16).

Those are keyboard playing oriented. I recommend using reverb, I have a TC Hall of Fame and an echo, it helps a lot.

I hope people who know the DX7 will recognize patches 36, 38, 41, 42 and 43, as those are copies from the ROM1A presets. Importing sysex was not providing great results (as Xavier mentions on the website the point is more to start working on sound rather than getting accomplished patches), so I used the freeware "DX7 Librarian" to check out how they were made. I also used this video as a reference for 36 & 38 mainly.

The presets that I came up with and use often would be 1, 8, 11.

The rest are mainly sysex imports. I often use 33.

As you can see most of them are pretty soft on the FM side ;)
Some of them have mod wheel / pitch bend / performance pots active, some others don't.

And a huge buzz: 12 downloads so far  :D

Thanks for your blessing  ;)

Of course I'll post here any music that I've done linked to the PreenFm! Nothing released so far… but I'm still working on a bank of presets, both personal ones and gathered from DX7 files.

UPDATE: it's on the m4l website now!

Hé hé :)

Hey ItalianOx, I'd love to take a look at this pdf but the link seems to be down (or even the whole website actually), did you download it a long time ago? I'll check again tomorrow morning.

EDIT: it's fixed, downloading now!

Hello, the "v" is for "velocity", it determines how much the according IM is responsive to keyboard velocity.
To turn an operator off, just set the wave of the operator to "none". I suppose that should do the trick?

PreenFM2 - Performance V1.0

Voilà, it's on the MaxForLive website now:

Original post:


I just started a M4L controller for the PreenFM2. It's just supposed to be a one way Live > PreenFM2 thing to make automations or control with an automapped controller. So the point is not to do an editor (as the one provided works perfectly) but more of a performance. In fact so far I just put the Performance pots, which is already quite enough to have some fun!

For the design I went with the classical Live9 / M4L style. I kinda like it. I'm not sure I manage to put the logo within the patch… if someone downloads it can you please check if the Logo appears?

Xavier, let me know what information you want to appear on the window (your name, etc…), so that when I'm a bit further I will put it on the M4L website. Any credit for the logo?
