I am super excited to try this out! In my view, reverb was always the 'last puzzle piece' that PreenFM really needed. FM sounds can often sound very dry and a little harsh without reverb, so for me this will finally make the PreenFM3 a trully independent sound unit that doesn't need to rely on external effects. Huge thanks to Toltekradiation and Xavier for making this happen.

preenfm2 and preenfm3 / Re: curved envelope segments or parameter response curves

no matter what i do or say im rude. so be it!  i dont care if you think so, what this thing needs is what it needs, no matter who says it or how they say it.

blah blah one man show for fuck sake spare me and just go back to your safe corner where everything is understood and nobody needs any features to make it do something cool.  making it cool isnt the point after all?  its…. i havent figured it out honestly.  what is the point of this whole line of synthesizers?  and is there extra cpu or not?  how close to the line are we with preenfm3 now?  do we need to tiptoe around the subject?.

i am a paying customer many times over now, ive had a preenfm for many years, i know it pretty well, and i know which direction it could go.  should i just stfu?  am i wasting my time telling you several ways in which it needs improvement?  how gentle do you guys needs me to be before you comprehend what i type?  before you call me a whiny bitch?  boy i love this synth but i sure dont love this game of tippy toe comprehension.  can you just grow some skin please?

@solipsvs if you look at the code, for example, the decay segment is exponential.
The representations in the editor are not the actual shape of the slope of each segment.

However, it would be cool to have different response curves (linear, expo, and/or log) for each segment.

New TFT SD Card slot works. I can load firmware in bootloader mode, and I can load and save presets normally.

However, the TFT still does not come on unless I reset the CPU. Not in bootloader mode, or normal mode. Holding [MENU][-] to force TFT refresh has no effect. As far as I can tell, this is the only problem. Otherwise the sound, outputs, MIDI, buttons, encoders, all work totally fine.

What should I trace / measure / examine to figure out why the CPU isn't turning on the TFT at power-up? I've tried powering it with 2 different 9V DC adapters, as well as powering it via USB only. No difference. I looked at all the PCB with a microscope and I don't see any stray pieces of metal, all the pins on CPU look fine, I cleaned whole board of flux with 99% IPA... all the usual best practices.

I have jumpers on:

- DC In
- USB Gnd
- TFT Vcc 5V (tried also 3.3V, no difference)
- Boot0 middle pin and Gnd

No other jumpers anywhere else, except when I moved DC In jumper to USB 5v to test USB power.

I will be away from my studio until Sunday, so there is no hurry to figure it out.

Also keep in mind this is a "one man show" developed by Xavier in his spare time, no company...

I will try to write this down calmly, and I have no affiliation with Xavier, or preenfm.

Your questions and answers come across rudely and very pushy, more often then not. This may be because English is not your first language? Xavier always tries to answer questions to his best...(if there is a misunderstanding, it will be cleared up eventually)

If a filter parameter takes too much time to be computed at modulation rate, and clicks are produced, there is not much point in asking once again when it will be implemented. different response curves for attack and decay would be nice, i agree, and your graphics make it very clear. Again, no need to sound insulting, which maybe you did not intend.

Anyways, sorry for the rant... Take care and have a nice day.

the pedal is a guitar distortion pedal.

you dont understand?   ???







ok i hope im clear now?  you can imagine what linear input would do to a parameter through a response curve?

no plans?  that seems a tad bit defensive, as if what i suggested is absurd?  you have no intention to add more matrix destinations?  you mean unless someone else with a preferred point of view raises the question? is something im doing making this harder for you to understand?  please lets take care of that first. 

envelopes and lfos dont need to be the same ones youve been using since the 1980s.  response curves dont need to be mysterious.  they can offer the same or enhanced performance, depending of how good your breakfast was today.  they can animate sounds in unexpected ways.  oh but they are a bit new-fangled im afraid.

I'm not sure i understand.
Have more freedom about the enveloppes of the operators ?

Regarding the modulation i don't have any plan to add more, i think 3 LFO, 2 envs and 2 step seq per voice with more than 30 targets sound already flexible.



im also trying to collect some pedals!  unfortunately you just cant modulate pedal parameters.

What does the pedal send ? Midi control change ?

do you plan to add much more to the preenfm2?  seems like some less processor intensive things would make sense.

I'll definitely fix any bugs that are found in the preenfm2.
And yes, maybe some less processor intensive things such as midi feature.
I don't have anything in mind right now.
