LS9 Firmware V1.17 (Previous version)
Please make sure to use the appropriate versions of firmware and software, referring to the following compatibility charts. Using an unsupported combination may result in malfunction.
- Files saved using later Editor or console versions cannot be loaded into earlier versions.
- Please note that some types of USB flash memories cannot be used for firmware updates, or cannot be accessed from the LS9 at all.
How to update the firmware
- Before performing any firmware upgrade it is good practice to back-up console data to a USB memory device.
- 1. Copy the following file to root directory of your USB memory.
LS9Px_xx.PGM (x_xx shows the version number.)
- 2.Insert your USB memory and power on.
- 3.LS9 detects the file and shows the following message.
"Start Loading? CANCEL[DEC]/OK[INC]"
- 4.Then press [INC] key to start updating the firmware.
- 5.Wait until completing the update. LS9 automatically restarts and becomes ready to use.
- 6.Initialize LS9.
- 1. Copy the following file to root directory of your USB memory.
Performance Limits and Specifications
- If the LS9 Editor does not return online, reset the Input Port/Output Port in the LS9 Editor "System Setup" dialog box, then select the ports again to return online.
- Severe fragmentation of USB memory may stop the recording/playback function of the USB memory recorder.
- The LS9 cannot recognize the files whose name start with a two-byte character.
- Sorting titles too quickly using up and down arrow buttons on the TITLE LIST screen of the USB memory recorder will sometimes result in a malfunction and moving of another title.
- While playing back an audio file using the USB memory recorder, the last part (maximum 400 ms) may not be played back.
- The USB memory recorder cannot play back WMA Professional audio files.
- The title list of USB memory is updated whenever USB memory is inserted or a file is added to or deleted from the SONGS folder in the YPE folder. Please note that update may take some time for a number of files.
- If USB memory is disconnected while recording with the USB memory recorder, it will not play back properly since the file process is incomplete.
- A bitmap file created by the user can be displayed on the CONSOLE LOCK screen with some restrictions, including that the file be uncompressed, 8/16/24/32 bit color, and 300KB or less.
Main Revisions and Enhancements
- Changed the initial value of COMM PORT in the EXTERNAL HA from "----" to "SLOT1" ("SLOT" for the LS9-16). Also changed the initial values of the EXTERNAL HA PORT SELECT parameter from "#1" to "SLOT1 1-8," "#2" to "SLOT1 9-16," "#3" to "SLOT2 1-8," and "#4" to "SLOT2 9-16." (There is no #3 and #4 on the LS9-16.)
- Fixed a problem in which the LS9 could freeze if a USB memory device, to which files were saved with file names including non-English European language characters (such as umlaut), was inserted.
- Fixed a problem in which logging in as a user could change to "guest" if you enabled or disabled Console Lock, with a move to a different directory from the corresponding user authentication key in windows such as the SAVE/LOAD popup, when you had logged in using a user authentication key saved to a USB memory device.
- Fixed a problem in which the LS9 could freeze if a USB memory device, containing AAC ( MPEG-4 AAC) audio files of less than one second duration, was inserted.
- Fixed a problem in which SLOT1 could not transmit or receive MIDI messages.
- Fixed a problem in which the LS9 would occasionally function excessively slowly or freeze when the Ethernet connection was unexpectedly disconnected due to the application crashing or font changes made in Windows Vista when the LS9 Editor was online.
Performance Limits and Specifications
- They are the same as V1.10.
