Everest II Support Page

The Everest II
is a stereo reverb and delay pedal which offers the user deep control over the sound.

Updating the Firmware


The current firmware version (1.3.1) is installed on pedals manufactured after May 1, 2022. If you bought the pedal on an earlier date, we advise that you update the Everest II firmware to the latest version presented on this page.

Please note that updating the firmware may alter the pedal's sound settings. If you're actively using the pedal in a project right now, it may be advisable to only update the firmware once the project is over.

NB! An incomplete firmware update can make the pedal unusable. If something goes wrong during the update, the pedal will most likely need to be serviced by Shift Line's qualified specialists. Please use the feedback form if you experience any issues with the firmware update.

PLEASE READ THE INSTRUCTIONS IN FULL BEFORE STARTING THE UPDATE!

Working with the Config File


Fine-Tuning via USB

On the right side of the Everest II, you can find a microUSB port which lets you connect the pedal to your computer. To do that, you need a microUSB cable (purchased separately). The USB port on your computer should be USB 2.0 or higher.

NB! Before performing any actions with the EVEREST 2 drive, make sure the cable is fully functional and there are no interruptions in the connection.

Connect the cables in the following order:
  • Connect the power supply to the Everest II.
  • Connect the Everest II to your computer with a microUSB cable.
  • If the connection is successful, an EVEREST 2 drive will appear on your computer. This means the pedal is ready for further operations.
  • Before disconnecting the microUSB cable from the pedal/computer, make sure to safely eject the drive first.
  • Do not disconnect the microUSB cable until all the operations with the EVEREST 2 drive have been finished!

Introduction

The device's flash drive has an AFXSETUP folder which contains the EVEREST2.SET file. The file can be viewed and edited in any text editor: simply right-click on the file and select an editor to open it with (you can also configure your system to open *.SET files with your text editor of choice).

The EVEREST2.SET file is a set of configurations which the pedal accepts to edit the sound processing programs. We recommend editing the config file to users with at least a basic programming background.

While editing the EVEREST2.SET file can go wrong (by entering improper values or erasing vital data, for instance), no harm will be done to the pedal itself. Simply delete the "bad" file, eject the EVEREST 2 drive, unplug the power supply from the pedal, then plug it back in. This will make the Everest II generate the default config file again.

If you're still reading this, you are probably ready to enter the magic world of fine-tuning sound processing programs. Give it a try: the config file has a number of useful features which cannot be accessed via the pedal's physical controls.

Patch Settings


Saving Parameters and Configs

Any changes you've made to the config file will be accessible to the device after saving. If you want to hear the changes on the fly, remember to rescan the config file by changing the MODE switch position. The settings saved in the config file will remain in the Everest II until the file is deleted. If needed, make a backup for the file on a different drive. Ready-made patch sets can be uploaded to the pedal by replacing the config file. The file name (EVEREST2.SET) should not be changed.

Reverting to Default Settings

If you've edited the config file and wish to revert to default settings, you can easily restore the default config file. Simply delete the unwanted config file from the AFXSETUP folder, and the pedal will go back to factory settings.

We are now working on an online patch generator for users who don't want to spend time tweaking the patches on their own. The link to the generator will appear on this page as soon as it's ready. Stay tuned for the news on our social media.

MIDI Config

The stability of MIDI Clock messages depends on the source, which may or may not be perfect (particularly when Clock and CC messages are transmitted simultaneously). For best performance, the interval between two consecutive messages should be set accordingly. We recommend setting the CC message interval to 17-20ms.

The Everest II is connected to the MIDI source via a MIDI Type A 6.3mm TRS jack. The wiring scheme is as follows:
MIDI 4 (Source) > TRS RING,
MIDI 2 (Shield) > TRS SLEEVE,
MIDI 5 (Sink) > TRS TIP.
Read more about MIDI standards here.

You can also use a TS connection (a 6.3mm mono jack into a DIN-5 input). To make such a converter, only use the following connections:

MIDI 2 (Shield) > TRS SLEEVE,
MIDI 5 (Sink) > TRS TIP.

NB! The CC11 (MIDI Expression) parameter is currently in development and doesn't function properly.
