Re: 1.B9 Firmware March 21st

Hi Xavier it definitely only happens with 1.B8 and above here is the procedure

Firstly im just using a midi keyboard an old kawai K11. And it doesnt seem so random the PFM2 acts like it has one fewer voices eg I load up Impending in pfm2 bank when showing 3 voices it will sometimes manage to  play 3 but more often than not it plays 2 voices sometimes missing the second note not the last as you would expect.

thanks

Xavier

I cannot reproduce and i don't know for the moment how that can happen.
Seems like i have broken something in 1.B8.
Don't hesitate to share if you find an easy way to reproduce.

In the meantime, i have questions :
1. do you have your problem just after loading a preset or does it start after, while playing.
2. when the problem is there. Do pressing "INST + MENU" (in this order and holding INST : PANIC) fix it ?
3. when you have this problem. What is the number of voice of the instrument with the problem ? And the number of voices of the other instruments.

Thanks

hi again
1 it plays fine for a short while after loading preset
2 when holding inst+menu it fixes it but comes back straight after
3 I set all other instruments to zero, if i set voices to 1 it intermittently makes a sound when keyboard is struck even tho the PFM2 is showing midi received in top right of LCD, if i set voices to 2 it intermittently sounds one or two and so on with the more voices.

Thanks... I cannot reproduce so everything can help  ;)
I think your keyboard send information differently from everything i have here.

If you have time can you flash this firmware :
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/41654198/preenfm2/firmwares/p2_1xx.bin

Each time a new note is received... You can see a counter that is incremented.
Then how the engine get the voice:
F (Free) : use a voice that was not playing any sound
S (Same) : use the voice that was playing the same note
R (Release) : All voices are busy but at least one is in release mode. Use the older voice in release mode.
O (Old) : All voices are busy... Use the older one for the new note.

When you get a missing note, do you have the counter that is incremented.. Do you see always the same Letter (R,F,R,O) for the missing note ?

Then when the problem is present... Press LFO+MTX... You should see some information that are very important for me.
Can you copy it...

Thanks a lot for your help.

Already ? :D
Thanks... that's usefull.

79 0    37 00
72 0    39 10
76 0    38 10

Each line is a voice state.
The 1 in bold is release mode information.
I have to understand why some voices remain in release state and refuse to play sound.

After the letter you can see ":" and the voice number that is used.
Is it always the same associated with the R that does not sound ?

But if you find a simple thing that you do that put a voice in this broken state, let me know.  ;)
Click INST + MENU.. it works...
Any simple sequence of notes that lead to this missing note ?

Hey Martin,

If found something, let me know if :
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/41654198/preenfm2/firmwares/p2_1xy.bin
fixes something for you.

Sending noteOff() on free voices put the voices in the state you describe.. silent following note.
It could be done by sending CC#123 (all note off) or sending 2 noteOff() on sound with Very fast release (which is the case of HARMOSYNTH).
I fixed that in this XY firmware.

Thanks
