Re: LP1 firmware is now open-sourced

Andy, thanks for shedding light and spurring further conversation.

I salute in advance any brave soul who ventures in to such waters :)

hi Rob,
before doing this Bob took some time to talk me through
about half the skills i'd need to work the LP1 software.
(being persuaded by Rick Walker)

It's all Linux based, not something I'm familiar with.
There's a matter of how to fix things if the Lp1
becomes unable to respond to updates due to programming
error, something that Bob told me was practically inevitable.
This requires a bit of hardware called a "Hackfin" (which I purchased)
and the knowledge what to do with it ( no idea).

So we're looking for individuals with

1) LP1 hardware
2) Linux skills
3) Hackfin device
4) Hackfin knowledge
5) Motivation
6) GitHub skills

out of which I only have 1,3,5, and just about enough 2 to compile if I go back to my notes.

Anyone else out there?

Bob really genuinely seems to not have the free time available,
he's doing all he can.
To be honest, I don't always have the spare time either,
but I do get windows of opportunity.

9 months later...

I was wondering if the LP-1 'community' would benefit from this decision. It doesn't seem like anybody is taking this and running with it.

I can't even tell what version this is on Github. I poked through the source, but found no hints. Is this the long awaited but never released 1.40 ?

any unlikely news on this topic is welcome, thanks

I was just doing my weekly check of the Looperlative board, only to find it no longer responding. I backtracked to the top of the domain, and found this:

"Looperlative the maker of the most advanced hardware looper on the market is going through a redesign. Please forgive this interruption of service but it is necessary to get caught up with commitments to all of our existing customers. Looperlative will once again sell advanced loopers after all existing commitments are satisfied.
