http://www.strymon.net/2012/02/01/ti...rmware-update/

I wish I had my Timeline...!



What’s new:
1. Preset naming – Display an (optionally) scrolling 16 character preset name, or the bank number
2. Global Tap tempo – Keep the most recently tapped tempo across all of your presets
3. 5 second Spillover* – Once you’ve played for at least 5 seconds on a patch, the current sound will spill over when you change to a new patch
4. Tap averaging – Tap tempo now averages your taps to more easily zero in on the desired tempo. Some have better rhythm than others
5. Kill dry – Mutes your dry signal for use in a parallel effects loop
6. Looper Undo to initial loop & Redo – Undo all overdubs and revert to the first recorded loop. Redo will bring back the recorded overdubs.
7. New dedicated MIDI CC for Bypass – Bypass or Engage TimeLine via MIDI regardless of which preset you are currently on
8. Also … new MIDI CCs for Looper Level, Looper Undo, Looper Redo, and Infinite Repeats
9. Loop transitions are now smoother
10. Ability to record 100% wet with the looper
Some miscellaneous “under the hood” bugs were also addressed with this update.

In order to take full advantage of the new factory preset names, you should follow the optional step of initializing your presets after updating the firmware. Additionally, we have provided a sysex file that only initializes presets in Banks 50-99 if it’s desirable to preserve edits you’ve made in banks 0-49.

Very cool - I'm glad they made the update for everyone. Now we all of TGP can start talking about how cool the Timeline is again, instead of complaining. Haha.

I'm sure y'all will.
I'm all for preset naming but the posts go on and on about some of the things Strymon didn't include. I thought it was great the way it was. Sure it could be made better, but some people sounded downright hostile.

I just made things simpler for myself and sold the Timeline and got an El Capistan.

Does this mean they'll be deleted/restored to factory settings?

Yes, but you can always use a Sysex Librarian to back up your presets first, then restore the factory presets with the new names, and then copy back your own presets.
