Patch Editor/Librarian Program for EchoTapper Units

Please use the Latest Updates Here link in the banner above, rather than the out of date links below.

Update 24th October 2013: Some bug fixes and extra features added. The links below now point to the latest Version (2.3) of the Editor/Librarian. The EchoTapper Version 3.20 Arduino code has not been changed so there’s no need to update your eTap2HW hardware. I’m looking for anyone using my Automation software with their eTap2HW-based echo units to try out this preliminary release of a software application which I am calling the EchoTapper Patch Editor/Librarian. I have written it in response to a number of requests from users of my automation code to enable them to back-up and re-arrange their User Patches, for example to create personal set lists. Although not yet having all the planned features included, the current version allows patches to be transferred to and from the eTap2HW via the USB connector on the Arduino Uno, and it also allows them to be saved to and loaded from disc. In it’s Editor role the software allows patches to be renamed and fully edited, for example, by changing the echo model and adjusting the echo parameters. It simulates the three main knobs on the ‘real’ eTap2HW control panel. ScreenShot#2 In order to use the Librarian with your eTap2HW you will need to upgrade the EchoTapper automation software to version 3.20 or later. The Librarian requires you to have Java installed on your computer and versions of the Librarian are available for Windows 32, MacOS X and Linux. As I don’t have access to MacOS X or Linux, these versions have not been tested yet and the Windows version has only been tested on Windows XP Professional. I would appreciate feedback on the software running on any of these operating systems so if you are able to help please download the relevant version and leave your feedback in a comment, remembering to state what OS you are using and details of your experiences and suggestions for improvements, if any. Thanks and enjoy 🙂 Philip Librarian User Guide Automation Software Version 3.20 (There seems to be a problem with the old upload tool I previously recommended so please try XLoader which is available here and is very simple to use.)
