» How do I check my firmware version?


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 or 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.

Use the Strymon Nixie software to update your TimeLine, BigSky, or Mobius pedal via MIDI.  You can download the application from the following links:
