TimeLine firmware update V1.14

TimeLine firmware 1.14 has been superseded by a newer version. Click here for the latest.


Today we’re releasing a firmware update for TimeLine. All that is needed to update is a computer and a MIDI interface. All current TimeLine users should apply this update.

The following changes are included in V1.14
• Tap subdivisions are now always applied when TAPDIV is set to something other than quarter notes. Delay time is always displayed in quarter notes.
• The TAP LED now changes to amber color if TAPDIV is set to something other than quarter notes. When quarter notes are selected the TAP LED is green.
• If BPM/Time is currently displayed, it will now still be displayed after banking up/down to change presets
• Dedicated MIDI CCs have been added for control of the looper. MIDI note messages were already supported to control the looper and now CCs can be used if a MIDI controller doesn’t support note messages. The looper CCs have been posted in a new revision of the user manual.
• A few “under the hood” bugs were fixed

The update file and instructions can be downloaded here: TimeLine Firmware Update

This update and any future updates will be available on our support page FAQ

happy shredding!

    This. Company. Is. Incredible. Total transparency, total support.
    You guys have ears for tone AND your customers. Keep it up

  2. […] Timeline reverting back to quarters? No longer. Fixed with the free Strymon update available here: Strymon Timeline Firmware Update. I played with it live for the first time this weekend with the update, and wow it makes my life […]

    Cmon… we need preset naming/ an editor program. Then this will destroy the eventide!

  4. CZ says:

    If I only HAD a Timeline TO update…

  5. Mario says:

    Kevin is right… preset naming would be a very very important update. And a software to edit the presets would be the icing on the cake!

    Would be nice to have a USB interface to update the Timeline. Plug that baby straight into my Mac. Midi sucked 40 years ago and it still sucks today..Of course I’m a guitar player, what do I know?

    And yes a naming/editing app would be killer!!

    How do I know / look up what Firmware my Timeline has?

  8. Laurent says:

    Hi,
    I have recently purchased the Timeline, it is definitly a great product !
    I just take the opportunity for my wish list 😉
    1 – Kill dry feature is what I miss the most
    2 – Preset naming would be great if possible
    3 – Find a way to know which of the 2 bank presets is active even when bypassed (to avoid loosing unsaved modification if activating the other preset instead of the 1st). Maybe blinking the led ?

    Thanks again for your great products.
    Laurent

    Any update on the ETA of the next batch of Timeline pedals? (Mine is already pre-ordered) Thanks! :)

  10. thirtytwobars says:

    Definitely DEFINITELY needs a preset naming function. Essential, I would say. Such an awesome pedal should not go without that function :)

  11. James O. says:

    Can someone tell me if they are able to have a “global” tap tempo on their TimeLine?

    Thanks, James

  12. Simone says:

    Timeline is a killer pedal!! but…What about a midi command dedicated for the bypass?? it would very usefull! thx

  13. Yesplz says:

    PRESET NAMING!!!!!!!! Those of us who gig all the time NEED a preset naming function. At the very least the ability to program a delay and then scroll through individual characters(arcade game scoreboard-style) to name it is essential. TL owners are asking for it all over internet forums. We believe in you, Strymon! Don’t let your fans down :)

  14. Joshua Bredahl says:

    I just ordered a Timeline… Will I still need to update the firmware? Or will it come already updated? Since it’s already been a few months I assume all the current Timeline’s being produced and purchased are already updated.

  15. Joshua Bredahl says:

    Awesome! That’s great Terry, thanks so much. Any idea when the next update is? And does it include naming presets? :)

  16. Chris says:

    Dedicated midi command to bypass it please!

  17. BC3 says:

    Can the looper be saved as a preset so can be selected as a program change via midi? Thanks!

  18. Seth Plemmons says:

    Global Tap Tempo please!

  19. Jamie Severson says:

    ‘Spillover’ between presets would make this pedal blow anything else out of the water. Right now, as amazing as it is, it can’t be used to transition between effects :(.

  20. Gareth says:

    A few thoughts for the looper function – if any of these features could be implemented then that would be great;

    The ability to create seamless loops (Most import as currently there is an audible ‘beat’ at the start/end of the loop during playback)
    The ability to control the volume/level of the loop via expression pedal
    A feedback control for the loop (i.e. previous overdubs/layers fade out as you add to the loop)
    The ability to Undo the most recent overdub (i.e. if you fluff a note/mess up)

  21. ian says:

    I’m hoping ‘kill dry’ function and preset naming are a part of the update. ‘kill dry’ is crucial for when using a wet only return through a mixer.
