***Please note that the original Nixie software has been discontinued. For the latest firmware updates for your Strymon products, please use Strymon Update.***
With the release of our new MultiSwitch, we have created new firmware for TimeLine, BigSky, and Mobius to allow you to access the new features that MultiSwitch offers. The Strymon Preset Librarian software can be used to update the firmware on your TimeLine, BigSky, or Mobius directly within the application. Below are instructions that illustrate how to update your pedal with the Librarian software.
In order to connect your pedal to the Librarian you must use a robust MIDI to USB interface with developed drivers for your computer’s specific operating system version. Some MIDI Interfaces that will work with our products are the Roland UM-ONE and Yamaha UX-16.Make sure to connect the MIDI OUT from your interface to the MIDI IN port of your Strymon pedal and the MIDI IN from the MIDI interface to the MIDI OUT port on your Strymon pedal.
Strymon Preset Librarian Software
Use the Strymon Librarian software to update your TimeLine, BigSky, or Mobius pedal via MIDI. You can download the application from the following links:
Setting Up Your MIDI Interface
After you have installed the Strymon Librarian software and connected the pedal to your computer through a MIDI interface, launch the Librarian and navigate to SETTINGS > MIDI Setup.
In the MIDI Setup window, choose your MIDI IN and MIDI OUT ports and run the connection test. The test bar should turn green and display “success” indicating the software does detect your connected MIDI interface.
Once your MIDI interface has been configured, you are now ready to update your Strymon pedal.
How to Update Your Pedal
Once you have connected your Strymon pedal to your computer with a dedicated MIDI interface and have opened the Librarian software:
1. Navigate to View > Software Update at the top of your window or screen
2. Click on “Install the Update”
3. After the update has successfully been installed, click “OK”
4. You can check in the bottom right corner of the Librarian to confirm the update was installed successfully
