FIRMWARE UPDATE

 

MixUpdate is a necessary application to update the M 18’s firmware. Follow carefully the instructions to perform the firmware update.

 

MixUpdate also features BACKUP and RESTORE functions. BACKUP allows saving all the Snapshots, Shows and Effects’ Patches from your mixer into a USB stick inserted in the M 18. Then, the RESTORE command brings the contents back to the M 18, either the same or a different one.

READ THIS FIRST

You may need to perform a two-step firmware update, depending on firmware version currently installed on your M18 unit. If you current firmware version is 187 or earlier, please update to version 221 first. Then, after power cycling the unit, you can perform the desired firmware update to version 226. Here is a summary of required actions, depending on your current firmware version:

 

177 -> update to 221 first -> update to 226

182 -> update to 221 first -> update to 226

203 -> update to 226

221 -> update to 226

222 -> update to 226

 

We strongly advise NOT to perform a firmware downgrade (that is, with a version which is earlier than the one you currently have on your system). Therefore, do not perform an update to 221 if you already have 222 or 226.

 

You can find the 221 package here:
