Echosystem Firmware Download

How to upgrade your Echosystem's firmware

1) download the firmware file here:

Download Firmware Version 1.07
MD5 Checksum: d0d80930fae0dcd32a570b68d9564ac6

 

2) copy the file to the root directory of a high-capacity SD card that's been formatted FAT32.

3) insert the SD card then power on the pedal (which may look like a reverb but is actually an echosystem in disguise)

4) The preset LEDs should marquee yellow for a bit, then all turn green when the update is complete.

5) remove sd card, cycle the pedal's power, and you're good!

1.07 (beta date: July 25, 2017)
-------------------------------
- fixed: Midi issue when sending knob parameters.
- fixed: New Tape thing 1 knob.
- updated: knob delay source presets load without ramping to the delaytime and causing
  pitch change. (Unless it's going from two presets with the exact same mode(s)
  and delay sources.)
- fixed: In HW insert and trails presets loading incorrectly sometimes.
- fixed: Delay time export using external tap in bank presets.
- fixed: No sound w/advanced config 'starting up pedal in preset 1' in bank mode.
- fixed: Lofi blue was putting wet in the dry path in wet/dry mode in serial routing
  if it was in the 2nd engine slot. 
- fixed: tap tempo led showing wrong time sometimes with expression pedal
  control of delay time/ratio.
- added: Midi CC's for:
    solo: eng A 41, eng B 42 (send 0 un-solo, any other value solos)
    Save Preset: 39 (send 0-35 to save to that preset).
- added: input rider with all-pass filter mode. (Aqua Ambient)
    thing 1: controls level into the delay line (so
    you can get swells by assigning it to the expression pedal).
    thing 2: Adds in all-pass filter signal which 
    smooths out transients a bit and makes it sound
    like a small room reverb.
- fixed: Factory presets with knob tap source had weird behavior 
  with expression pedal plugged in.

1.06 (beta date: June 9, 2017)
------------------------------
- add mix taper option to advanced configuration. now there's an option that is more heavily weighted towards
  the dry side.
    - advanced configuration option found at green digital
    1. wetter mix taper (default)
    2. dryer mix taper (new)
- added Shimmery Fixed Pitch mode (Red Whiskey)
    Thing 1 is pitch shift in semitones, thing 2 is modulation.
- slowed down the delay time knob response so it sounds more tape-like when moving it around.  
- fixed: modulation thing 2 knob in Deluxe Memory Boy mode.
- changed Thing 2 taper in BBD mode slightly.

1.05 (beta date: May 11, 2017)
-------------------------------------
- fixed: expression pedal implementation
- fixed: midi clock no longer triggers infinite feedback
- fixed: engine swapping and routing and preset bug
- fixed: preset LED dimming
- fixed: filter blue mode. was clipping at low thing 1 settings
- fixed: crackles in stutter mode.
- fixed: cycling through engines in lo-fi was creating a loud pop
- fixed: really short knob delay times making clicks in ambient blue and multi red.
- upped the feedback in multi mode and filter blue mode
- changed auto stutter mode so the tap stomp action depends on delay time source
    knob = hold and let go
    global = tap to trigger
    local = auto trigger
- can now tell order of engines: after engine swap focus goes to engine 0
- tremolo and panning modes: when delay time source is knob, tap stomp accepts tap tempo

1.04 (production date: April 26, 2017)
--------------------------------------
- initial release
