I will maintain the links on this page to the latest versions of my software and user guides and other documentation so you don’t need to go hunting through the site to make sure you’ve got the most recent version.
Blue Nebula Firmware & Emulations
The Firmware, Librarian, MEM 1 and MEM 2 emulations code and User Manual for the new Version 4 release are now available. You can either download the complete package in one single zip file (~57MB) or download each item individually from the links below.
Details of Improvements
This document (pdf) gives some details of the main improvements to the emulations of the various echo machines and the new models that have been added.
Extended User Patches
Includes almost 40 new patches for extra Shadows tunes, for example Dance On, The Rumble, Gonzales, Perfidia etc, several Binson Echorec patches and even a couple for David Gilmour fans. See the Excel Song Sheet for a list of all the patches.
NB: Before loading these new patches into your Blue Nebula we recommend that you make a backup of your own patches onto your computer.
See this article for information about MemBuilder.
MemBuilder User Manuals
MemBuilder Technical Document
This short guide explains how to turn your own compiled SpinASM hex files into MemBuilder ‘effect’ files so you can use them with the MemBuilder app. If you don’t know how to produce a SpinASM hex file then this guide will be of no use to you 😉
The following links to a ‘Builder Header’ file that you can use as a starting point to create your effect file as explained in the Technical Document.

Blue Nebula Software & Firmware
Automation Firmware Version 3.30 (for Common Anode MONO LCDs) for your Arduino here
Automation Firmware Version 3.30 (for Common Anode RGB LCDs) for your Arduino here
It has come to my attention recently that there are some LCD display modules on sale that are ‘Common Cathode’ types (e.g. this one from SparkFun) , rather than the more common ‘Common Anode’ type. If you find your LCD display is very dark after you upload the code, then you probably have a common cathode LCD so try this version which works for the common cathode type and gives the intended colours on an RGB display.
