Thanks … yes I have … just the other minute after I had read your post about the Preen FM2. I have always been the kind of guy, reading the manual or watching demos on YT before buying gear … I prefer to have expectations that have good chances to become true
Talking filters … you are right It’s important to embrace new work flows and change old habits … particularly if we search new sonic territory.
Today I will take some time, to dig into the various algorithms, and to understand, how those factory presets are made, which produce those formant-like sounds. Maybe I will also check out the software editor.
But first thing will be listening and knob-bing. Albeit, I am missing - only a little - the opportunity of feedback loops between the operators. Fortunately I have some alternatives. The most important fact is that I like the sounds of the instrument - it’s astonishing, what Xavier Hosxe has achieved - absolutely outstanding
Yesterday I jammed minutes with some presets … a poly synth arp-ing a chord, left hand on a Moog, right hand on an AK playing the Preen … This little thing will quickly wriggle it’s way in my next tracks.
