No help? AMT?? :'(

Is anyone else having problems getting the new PC editor to work?

I updated the firmware to 2.5.5 and that went ok.

But when I followed the instructions to install the Editor it seemed
like the drivers (amt.inf ?) it needed to work were not included in the download.
________________________________________
The application’s installation instructions:

1. Download the archive file CP100Setup.zip.
2. Unzip the file.
3. Connect the CP-100 to a PC with an USB cable and choose the CP-100 mode – USB Drive
4. Copy in the USB drive root folder the file – firmware (it is in the unzipped folder).
5. Safely unmount USB-drive and disconnect the USB cable.
6. Connect a power adapter to the CP100.
7. After the program is renewed, connect the USB cable and chose CP-100 mode “Serial port”.
8. Install CP-100 USB virtual serial port drivers – amt.inf (the file is in the unzipped archive folder).
9. Run the file CP100Setup.exe to install the application.
10. On the end of the installation, run the application AMT Pangaea CP_100

Any help much appreciated.

Hi folks,

Thought I could share this with you.

Instead of using the Pangea as a plain IR loader, I bought it to replace whatever "full" amps. Of course I am aware that there's no dynamics captured in an IR, so any kind of amp overdrive and/or compression would not be available. But then, over the last few years, all my sounds were coming from my pedalboard only, so all I really need is a clean, pedalfriendly amp. Which is what I have been using for around the last 5 years or so (amps used: clean channel of either a Boogie MKIV, a Fender "The Twin" or a Laney LC50).
To get similarily good results from IRs only, I have been creating individual IRs from some pre- and poweramps and then run them through whatever cab IRs. I tried all that out inside Logic, which would allow me to run IRs serially, parallely, EQ them, stack them up and so on. Once I was happy with a certain setup I mixed everything down to single IRs which I am now loading into the Pangea.
And guess what? This is working amazingly well! I have already played 2 gigs with just my pedalboard and the Pangea, one via InEar, the other using a rather nice RCF FR monitor. Kickass sound and I didn't miss my amps for a single minute.
I may add some compressor in the future, but for now this seems to be the way to go for me.

I could happily post a soundfile or one or the other IRs I'm using.

Cheers

A master volume would really be VERY welcomed!

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

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 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

So, I figured it out myself after a while:
If you press "Sys" in Global mode, there's a line "midi pc map". There you can assign the program change commands. For the CP-100 FX has "only" 100 Presets (which does not exceed the 127 Midi commands available), it's pretty simple the corresponding preset number by default (1->1, 2->2,...).

All my problems were caused by a faulty MIDI-cable...The commands I sent were all corrdct from the start. Well, maybe someone else has also any problems in this area and might benefit from my experience, at least...

Hello,

did anybody figure out by now, how I can address specific presets with midi commands? That would be a great help.
I'm using a GLabs GSC-1 and want to instantly switch to specific presetes in the pangaea FX.

Any help greatly welcome! Thx upfront!
