Infinity Looper Firmware Update – Varispeed refinements – Firmware Build 129

Firmware Build 129 can be found here.

Varispeed Feature Additions:

-The Varispeed sample-rate of each loop is now stored when the base-layer recording is closed.  The sample-rate that is stored is the sample-rate of the Infinity the moment the base-layer recording is closed.  When a Loop is erased it’s associated Varispeed Settings are deleted.

-If a Preset is saved with Varispeed Settings stored, they are recalled and the sample-rate of the Infinity is set to the Loop 1 Varispeed Setting.

-At anytime, even after adjusting the Varispeed sample-rate, the stored Varispeed Setting can be recalled by simultaneously pressing both Remote Footswitches while in the Varispeed Remote Control Mode (accessed by holding the Reverse switch for two seconds and identified by three horizontal lines on the 7-segment display).  The Rules that control this function are:

  1. With no Varispeed Settings stored (No Base Layer Recorded, or a Base Layer is currently being recorded), Pressing on Both Remote Footswitches in Variespeed Remote Control Mode will set the sample-rate to 24 kHz.
  2. In Parallel Sync Mode with ALL enabled: Pressing on Both Remote Footswitches in Varispeed Remote Control Mode will reset the sample-rate to the rate used to record Loop 1, regardless of which loop is currently armed.  If Loop 1 has not been recorded, or is currently recording,  the sample-rate will be set to 24 kHz.
  3. In Parallel Sync Mode with ARM enabled: Pressing on Both Remote Footswitches in Varispeed Remote Control Mode will reset the sample-rate to the rate used to record the currently armed loop.  If the currently armed loop has not been recorded, or is currently recording, the sample-rate will be set to 24 kHz.
  4. In Series Loops Mode, regardless of ARM/ALL setting: Pressing on Both Remote Footswitches in Varispeed Remote Control Mode will reset the smaple-rate to the rate used to record the currently armed/playing loop.  If the currently armed/playing loop has not been recorded, or is currently recording, the sample-rate will be set to 24 kHz.

Varispeed Feature Additions:

-MIDI Time Signature settings applied using the PC/MAC application are now enabled.  These settings can be applied per preset.

-The Auto Zero Record Boot Option now, by default, sets the Sample-rate to 24kHz.  This enables the MIDI Varispeed control to more accurately track the MIDI Clock.

-The Expression Pedal / Interval assignment menu has been enabled when audio is playing back.  It has further been revised to not engage the desired change until the menu is exited.  This prevents undesired changes from occurring while inside the menu.

-When exiting Loop Aging Expression Pedal Assignments, the Loop Aging Value is set to the value closest to the last position of the expression pedal.

-2 versions of the ‘Keaggy’ style instant erase have been included.  In both of these modes, the Varispeed Remote Switch Control is disabled in favor of the instant erase options.  Using the updated application, two types of instant erase can be mapped to the REVERSE footswitch:

  1. Instant Erase: When the Reverse switch is pressed the currently armed loop will be immediately erased and be available to start recording.
  2. Instant Erase+Rec: When the Reverse switch is pressed the currently armed loop will be immediately erased and arm itself.  In Parallel Sync Mode while both loops are playing back, the Erase+Rec loop will wait until the other loop cycles to begin recording.

Bug Fixes:

-Stutter Mode with Series Loops has been fixed.

-MIDI Song Select has been re-included.

-Loop Aging selections from the Loop Aging Menu have been re-enabled.

-Corner Cases involving erasing Loop 1 before Erasing Loop 2 have been addressed.
