Firmware Version 1.1.1

  • Minor bug fixes.

  • Added More Wah effect to the Expression model category.
  • Added Panner effectto the Expression model category.
  • Added Gate effect to the Dynamics/EQ model category.
  • Added the ability to import .tfx (Eleven® Rack) presets. To import a .tfx preset, click and drag it to the Rigs folder when connected to a computer and the HeadRush Pedalboard is in USB Transfer mode, and then tap Sync.
  • Added the ability to customize the text on an OLED screen for a footswitch set to Stomp Mode. To change the OLED text for a footswitch in Stomp Mode, enter the Hardware Assign page, and then tap the outlined box that shows the current OLED text for one of the 8 footswitches. 
  • Added Scene feature, which is the ability to assign a single footswitch to control the On/Off parameter for multiple models. To assign a single footswitch to control the On/Off parameter for multiple models, enter the Hardware Assign page, and then tap the Toggle/Hold parameter for one of the 8 assignable footswitches until it says Scene. Then, tap the Edit text that appears on the footswitch to set which models will be turned on/off when pressing the footswitch. 
  • Added the ability to make fine adjustments in Hands-Free Mode by using the two bottom-right footswitches labeled – and +. 
  • Added the ability to delete models from the main screen by dragging and dropping them onto a Drag to Delete bar that appears at the bottom of the screen. 
  • Added the ability to select 44.1kHz as a sample rate for USB Audio. 
  • Added the ability to use a search bar for faster access to finding rigs while creating or editing a setlist. 
  • Minor bug fixes and DSP optimizations.

Firmware Version 1.0.2

  • Added Screen Lock feature. This feature disables the touchscreen, and gives you a simple interface that shows your current rig name, setlist name, and a customizable image. To customize the Screen Lock image, while the HeadRush Pedalboard is in USB Transfer mode, place a .png, .bmp, .jpg, or .jpeg file named LockScreenLogo in the root directory of the HeadRush drive. We recommend using a 800×400-pixel image (it will be automatically scaled to this size after transferring it). 
  • Added the ability to place the looper before or after your signal chain. This gives you the ability to record a riff, and then place it before the signal chain so you can sculpt your rig’s sound without having to physically play the riff over and over again. To set the looper’s location, while viewing the looper on the touchscreen, turn the third parameter knob (Loc) to place it before (Pre) or after (Post) the signal chain. 
  • Added ability to truncate impulse response (IR) files to 1024 samples. When your IRs are truncated, they require fewer DSP resources, which frees up more resources to load additional models and/or IRs to each rig. To load a truncated IR, select IR 1024 instead of the normal IR setting when adding an IR to a rig. 
  • Added the ability to enable or disable confirmation messages that appear while changing your rig. To enable or disable these messages, enter the Global Settings screen and set Reminders > Confirm Unsaved to On (enabled) or Off (disabled). 
  • Added Side Comp effect to the Dynamics/EQ model category. This is a side-chain compressor effect, which uses the HeadRush Pedalboard’s effects return as the side-chain input. Note: When this effect is in your signal chain, the FX Loop will be disabled. • Minor bug fixes and DSP optimizations.

Firmware Version 1.0.1

  • Enabled USB audio recording and reamping features. Important Note for Windows Users: Visit headrushfx.com/support and download and install the latest Windows driver before using the USB Audio feature.
  • Minor bug fixes.
