Re: Noise gate / upgrade steps (LP1 for sale)

Thanks Bill and Andy for thoughts and ideas....

but.....  Whoa, cue <head slap>....

Some deep recess of my brain brought up the words 'Noise Gate' last night, and sure enough that seems to have been the problem with the audio requiring a 'kick' and then going to sleep. Textbook case, "not a bug, its a feature" :)

I don't recall ever having adjusted that setting on my unit, but it may be that reconfiguring my setup a bit recently changed the levels going in to the LP1, thereby providing the conditions for the noise gate to do its thing, but on my actual instrument signal rather than background noise. Pretty bad when your gear tells you what you are playing is nothing but noise, eh?

That was the 'I've had it with this thing' moment, so I'm all better now..... But I still do have the upgrade/downgrade problem, and I'm gonna have to bite the bullet and try to get Bob's help on this. I've been waiting to see if somehow his situation stabilized and he started responding on the forum etc.... no more forum, check. But yeh, I guess I should just contact him anyway, worst case I won't get an answer.

Andy, thanks for the troubleshooting tips - yes, I'm getting an IP address on the LP1. I'm a bit hampered now since there were upgrade instructions on the forum. Anybody have those stashed someplace?

I still expect to sell it at some point, I shamefully have not used it in all its splendor, and a much more basic device would do the trick for me. But at least I don't have to have a fire sale now.

Hi Rob,
it's quite possible that a firmware upgrade would leave the LP1 in a state where further firmware changes were impossible.

It can be fixed by anyone who a) has a special connector (which I do)
b) has the knowledge of how to do it (which I don't)

Like Bill says, it's unthinkable that Bob wouldn't want to sort that for you.

BUT, let's make sure you you went through the correct procedure for upgrade/downgrade

Did you attempt to access the LP1 via ethernet and your web browser?
Did that work?

Does your LP1 give an ethernet address?

I've got a Looperlative LP-1 available.

It has a few issues.... after a motherboard replacement 2-3 years ago that left it at OS version 1.38F (that OS version never released I think), much later I realized I could not upgrade/downgrade the OS, seems to be a bug in that that version.
