Hi @Toltekradiation. Are you Cevorkum in YouTube? How do you represent feedback in PreenFM2? Examples in these videos have feedback in one operator. Thanks.

hi NonovYurbiz,
no, i'm not Cevorkum..
to simulate feedback on the pfm2, you can use the different waveforms :
the more feedback, the more harmonics will be added, so for a medium feedback, use the sawtooth waveform, for high feedback, use noise.

I'm confused by these videos.  The ratios don't match what I hear.

For example in the Metal video for the first sound, he shows operator 4 with a DX ratio of 21.98.  He labels this operator as the fundamental and plays it with the other operators turned off and you can hear a fairly low note.  That doesn't make sense. 

Has any been able to get similar sounds using his quoted ratios?

Bumping this thread as I could also use some guidance as to how the values given in these videos map over to the Preen (FM3)

So I have been analysing these video's the past few days both on my Volca FM and my PreenFM2 and was able to, for the most part, reconstruct many of their sounds using the DX frequencies. What helped me is realising that the tone they are using is pitched to a lower or higher value to sound as a C3, so this means that if the frequency is 2.00 they play C2 instead of C3 to make it sound as C3. Another thing to look out for is that the PreenFM2 has a maximum frequency of 16 and to get higher you need to use the FTune knob, however the FTune does not scale exacly the same way as the coarse frequency on the Volca FM for example. I found out that by multiplying the difference between the Volca FM frequency and the PreenFM by 1.25 you could get very close to those sounds. For example the beforementioned 21.98 can be replicated by setting the Freq value to 16 and the FTun to (21.98 - 16) * 1.25 = 7.48. Hope this helps!
