Thank you SO much for this unbiased post! Most reviews seem to be sponsored in some way, and while that's not always an issue, it does seem to seem the overall perspective. Super informative and helpful! :hail:
Thanks for watching!
Caught your demo by coincidence (didn't know you were on Muff) - yeah, really enjoyed your review, very well said on the pros and cons of the device. Must say that my does work quite well with guitar, though never tried it with synths.

## While in Global Configuration mode, tap the Select/Shift button 3 times rapidly. The indicator lights should change to either blue (representing the old triggering style) or green (representing the new triggering style). You can toggle back and forth by tapping the Select/Shift button 3 times.
Thanks but this doesn’t work for me. On global configuration mode the indicator lights become blue at the second tap not the third and if I do it again it’s always blue never green.
I updated With the lastest firmware 1.12 may 2021 but can’t have a clue to be sure that the update worked.
Perhaps they change this on 1.12 ? Can anyone with 1.12 try to tap 3 times the select button on global configuration please ?

The process described above doesn't work on the newer firmware.

I had a reply from Hologram about 1.12 update, no alternate triggering mode and a nice way to check the update :
"There is no alternate triggering mode on the latest firmware [1.12]. So it sounds like you have the latest version (V 1.12)-- but it's worth checking. You can test this in the global configuration menu. Once you're in GC, simply tap the Reverse Looper button 3 times rapidly. If Mosaic, Haze, and Tunnel lights illuminate-- then you have the latest firmware. If not, then you have an older version."
Hope it helps.

Any of you all have this pedal attached to a patch bay? I have some free inputs I could plug this into, but I am unsure how to wire it up so I can use the front of the bay to route audio into it from my hardware.

I use mine with a Samson 48 port patchbay-
In my case 16 mono channels to the mixer and I have 8 spare for stereo pedals. I use them for my Microcosm (use a stereo Y adapter) and Time Factor delays and a Walrus R1 and Specular Tempus for reverbs. if you have the table space to keep them all wired up and such, it's super handy to do with the patch bay and let it take the wear and tear.
For the pedals the input on the front bottom goes to pedal input and the pedal output plugs into the top rear and the front top just gets routed to one of the mixer channels or sent to another pedal in the chain.

Yoozer on GS made a good diagram of how I route mine (bottom example)

Yes, awesome this is exactly what i was looking for. I have the same patch bay as well and i route the synths to my interface the same as the diagram.

My front switches are set to half-normal. Id like to interrupt the sound from my selected synth and send it into the pedal instead. Is that the proper setting? I believe normal will double the signal so it sends into the synth input plus the pedal, but i may be mixing the 2 up.

Patching in normal will break the connection to the bottom jack and the signal goes wherever you point the patch cable.

Half-Normal will continue to feed the original signal to the bottom even when patched.

Thanks! Ill switch to normal. Seems pretty straightforward from there.
