Good to finally see something happening and hopefully resolving the software crashes.

More than 14 days on 2.4.2 and still going strong - no crash, no lockup so far. Great!

And to whom it may concern: I found affordable IRs that I personally am very fond of cabIR.eu
The Orange 4x12 impulses are my current favorites https://www.cabir.eu/de/pro-ir-series/3-speaker-cabinet-impulse-response-cab-ir-library-orange-or-4x12g12h30.html

Cheers!

And while we´re at it:
2.5.1 is available:

Just installed it - now you get access to a tuner by keeping the "Edit"-button pressed. Nice!

And 2.5.4 is up:

Remedies some a quirk that happened to me when saving.
Additionally AMT promises even more stability but I for one didn´t have any severe problems (read: freezes) with the recent firmwares in the first place.
Nice that things finally seem to pan out. My confidence is back to the point where next week I´m going to take the Pangaea with me to a gig for the first time.

It might be noteworthy that I started to use the unit at 9V recently, which should be possible without problems, I was told by AMT.
This way I don´t need an extra/special powersupply with my pedalboard, keeping things simpler and more compact.

Hi there :)

I got myself a CP-100 for christmas after I recently saw that there was an affordable IR loader without much extra in a very handy format. So far I'm quite content with the device, but I got a suggestion for a (hopefully sometime) coming update - is it possible to give the set/esc button in the main menu the functionality to simply swich between the standart screen and the file name screen, but have the rest of the button funtion the same on both "screens" so you can also change presets and banks when seeing the name of the IR? This might help keeping an overview. Theoretically it should be a relatively easy thing to implement.

Also thanks for the preset editor, sadly only saw it after I've dialed all presets down to about 23 by hand XD. By the way, is there a free programm that let's you edit the impulse files? The problem with the DAW I use is that it can't really export a file that short.

Since I plan on using the CP-100 live I've soldered a stereo stereo jack to xlr cable kind of adapter, but haven't tried it out yet. Also there were some warnings about phantom power damaging the output capacitors on older models, is there an easy way to check if my device is protectet from that (e.g. plugging in a stereo cable and measuring the diode conductive voltage between GND and the ring and tip with a multimeter)? When it arrived it already had the newest firmware and orange paint, so I guess it's the newer model.

Cheers

P.S. just saw the CP-16 announcement, would've also been a good option since I like building my own pedals, but they get much bulkier than the CP-100 most of the time so it's alright :D

Hi. Most probably your CP100 is protected. To be sure, measure the resistance of the output jack. Insert a TRS cable in OUT and measure Tip-Sleeve and Ring-Sleeve. Both have to be 830 Ohm (or 3kOhm in the newest version). You needn't leave CP-100 without  power with XLR cable connected.

Hi,

First post here, so, the most important thing I need to get off my chest is: What a fantastic little unit! This has already changed my life - yes, I'm dead serious!
I will happily explain how I'm using the Pangea in another thread, might be interesting for some other folks, too...

Anyway, as this is a "suggestions" thread, here's what I'd like to see more than anything else: I really wish I could upload and reorganize IRs to the Pangea while it is playing, so I can instantly check out the results without disconnecting it from the computer and powering it up again.

In addition, an onboard "copy/paste/delete" option would be great. As is, it takes a computer (or smartphone/tablet, fwiw...) to do that.

Oh, and because this has been mentioned before: Is it really possible to run the Pangea with 9V without doing any damage? That'd be awesome!

Cheers
Sascha

Yes, you can use the CP100 with a 9VDC power supply
