Librarian User Guide in French

Guide de l’utilisateur Bibliothécaire en français

Many thanks to Michel Nogré for his hard work in translating the User Guide for the Blue Nebula Librarian into French. Michel is now enjoying a hard-earned rest on a beach in Barbados 🙂

Si vous souhaitez télécharger le nouveau guide, il est disponible sur la page ‘Latest Updates Here’ (“Dernières mises à jour ici”)

Manuel d’utilisation de la Blue Nebula

Now, thanks to the efforts of Michel Nogre, we have the Blue Nebula User Manual available in French – Manuel d’utilisation de la Blue Nebula.

The link to this and all the latest guides, software and firmware is, as always, in the Navigation bar above, under ‘Latest Updates Here’.

Michel will get to work on translating the Librarian Guide when he gets back from his holiday.

Manual de Usario Español por Blue Nebula

Many thanks to Pancho Diaz for translating the Blue Nebula User Manual into Spanish. Hopefully this will help the Spanish-speaking Blue Nebula owners to get the most out of their pedals. You can download the manual here or from the ‘Latest Updates Here’ link on the menu bar above.

Pancho is currently working on the Spanish translation of the Librarian User Guide so check back here soon for news of this.

Patch Editor/Beheerder Gebruikers Handleiding

Thanks to the hard work of Piet Verbruggen, there is now a version of the Blue Nebula Librarian User Guide in Dutch for our many Blue Nebula users from the Netherlands.

Piet’s work on the eTap2hw and Blue Nebula projects plus his work experience as a Technical Author was a big help in this undertaking which was certainly no easy job!

Thanks also to Piet’s wife Anny and to Tonnie Tijssen for proof reading.

You can download the pdf document here and, as always, all the latest documentation and software/firmware versions are available on the ‘Latest Updates Here’ page.

I’ve also updated the English version of the Librarian User Guide, mainly with some minor improvements to layout and a few corrections. Get it here.

Dutch User Manual

Thanks to the efforts of Piet Verbruggen there is now a Dutch version of the Blue Nebula User Manual available. You can download it via the ‘Latest Updates Here’ link on the menu bar above or here.

I hope to have the Dutch version of the Librarian User Guide available soon.

Librarian and Blue Nebula Version 3.0

The release Version 3.0 of the Blue Nebula firmware and the matching Librarian app Version 3.0 are undergoing final testing and will be released here shortly.

A quick glance at the new Librarian User Guide (link below) will show you the many interesting features and how it works with the Blue Nebula to give a really unique and exciting new effect pedal experience.

Briefly, the Librarian app allows you to transfer your patches between the Blue Nebula and your computer and it allows you to back them up by saving onto the computer – but it does a LOT more!

It also allows you to edit your patches, for example renaming them or tweaking the parameters, as well as having copy and paste functions and it allows you to create set lists so you can have the tunes arranged in the order you want for a show. The up and down footswitches then allow you to step through the list with the LCD display showing you the name of each tune.

The Blue Nebula comes with 8 vintage echo effects already installed in its first memory chip (MEM 1) but the new Librarian’s biggest and most unique feature is probably its ability to upload another 8 effects via USB to the second memory chip (MEM 2). This updates the effect and parameter names on both the Blue Nebula pedal and in the Librarian app which will recall them next time it’s run so that it always stays in sync with the effects on-board the pedal.

These additional 8 effects can be chosen from a wide range to standard guitar effects that are already available on the internet – many free DSP programs are listed on the Spin Semiconductors website. In addition there are several unique new effects that the Blue Nebula design team is currently working on and we will be making these available (also free) ready to upload to the Blue Nebula via the USB input.

‘Standard’ effects include popular guitar effects including chorus, phaser, flanger, delays and reverbs and the new effects currently in development include emulations of the classic Binson Echorec and an enhanced Vox Long Tom emulation.
