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.
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.
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.
Reminder: You need to have Java installed on your computer to be able to run the Librarian. If you have the 32-bit version of Java you will only be able to run the 32-bit Librarian even if your OS is 64-bit. If you have a 64-bit Windows Operating System, please check this page for information on which version of Java you should download if you don’t already have it.
Librarian Version 4.01 is an update that fixes a bug in the previous Version 4.00.
The bug prevented the Librarian from correctly interpreting the ‘Heads’ data sent by the Blue Nebula for emulations with numbers between 5 and 15 that use the ‘coded’ ‘A’, ‘B’, ‘C’, ‘E’ and ‘F’ values. It caused the wrong head letter to be received by the Librarian and all head settings became ‘A’ instead of the correct letter value from the Blue Nebula patch. This incorrect value would have been saved in any patch files saved with the Save Patches button in the Librarian. If this patch data was subsequently sent back to the Blue Nebula using the Send All Patches button it will have corrupted the heads value in the Blue Nebula’s patches. You should check and correct the Heads settings in any affected patches and resend them to the Blue Nebula.
The Blue Nebula Firmware 3.02 does not require a fix for this bug, only the Librarian.
The updated software can be downloaded from the Latest Updates Here link above.
Make sure you download the correct version depending on your Windows Operating System: 32-bit or 64-bit. The 32-bit Librarian will work on 64-bit Windows systems but the 64-bit version of Librarian will not work on a 32-bit Windows OS.
The update for Mac OSX will be available as soon as possible.
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.
A few short videos I put together to show how to use the Blue Nebula and it’s Librarian software.

Naturally a number of you have been asking where/when you can hear some demos of the Blue Nebula. Thanks to Steve Reynolds and Alan Simm for permission to post these links to their excellent recordings made using their Blue Nebula pedals.
Update: Two more Blue Nebula tunes. These are from Tonnie Tijssen – scroll down to the bottom of this post.
