Disable save preset with double click the master

Postby M-Prod » Sat Nov 22, 2014 6:00 pm

Double click on the master button saves the preset in the current slot. Very often is accidently overwrite a patch this way. Can i disable it?

I've seen a couple of references to 3.6 - I have 3.5? I haven't bought the field upgrade yet though so I still have the smaller preset storage.

I'd like to be able to disable the preset scroll function using the ext. in pot. I would prefer to be able to alter the level when the input is off, so that I can then kick in the ext. signal at preset levels.

Hi all,
@M-Prod:
I made a change in the MASTER Storage Mode(s) menu, now you can switch on/off this function.

@yesman:
there's also a change in the PANEL Quick Mode menu, now you can switch on/off the external audio pot function too.

Here you can get the 3.6 version for the regular Voyager:

http://www.moogmusic.de/bank_B_360.syx
http://www.moogmusic.de/bank_C_360.syx
http://www.moogmusic.de/bank_D_360.syx

Here you can get the 3.6 version for the XL Voyager:

http://www.moogmusic.de/XL_bank_C_360.syx
http://www.moogmusic.de/XL_bank_D_360.syx

And here you can get the 3.6 version for the RME Voyager:
http://www.moogmusic.de/RME_bank_A_360.syx

http://www.moogmusic.de/RME_bank_C_360.syx
http://www.moogmusic.de/RME_bank_D_360.syx

Here is a little explanation how to transfer the files to the Voyager:
You need MIDIOX for a Windows computer (sorry, I don't have a MAC):
http://www.midiox.com

Here are the settings in MIDIOX:

To transfer a file to the Voyager select the file by the right mouse button as you can see on the photo:

You should see this when you've pressed the right button:

The update file order is:
1) go to the MASTER page "Receive Update" and send bank "B".
2) then if the Voyager asks for bank "D" leave "NO" and press ENTER.
3) in the MASTER menu go to "Receive Update" and send bank "A".
4) now when the Voyager asks for bank "C" select "YES" and ENTER and
send bank "C" to the Voyager. Do the same thing with bank "D".

Check after the update whether the boot and the system numbers are the same
in the MASTER "Software Version" menu.

Have fun,
Rudi

OK, I seem to be having a bit of a problem with the update. I can see that Midiox is sending data out from my FF440. I have the V set-up to receive the update & I seem to have loaded Bank B as the V is now asking for Bank A. I send that & the V is not doing anything. Any help would br greatly appreciated. This is running under Win7 Pro 64bit.
Thanks

Unfortunately, this update screwed my Voyager SE. It now boots into sweet nothing. The LED's and the display lights up, but the display just shows black pixels all over.

I guess there's no way out of this, except taking it to an authorized repair service?

Hi slirak,
To reset the factory settings:
Power off the Voyager
Press and hold the -1 and the +1 buttons
Power on the Voyager
Release the buttons

Then please try this:
Power off the Voyager
Press and hold the ENTER and the CURSOR buttons
Switch on the Voyager
Release the ENTER and the CURSOR buttons
Press ENTER
Now you are in the boot system

If the display is still dark, you have to change the LCD contrast.

Is it possible to get the MASTER LED on when you press the MASTER button?
If it's possible then press ENTER when the MASTER LED is selected and then press the +1 button ten or more times to get a contrast change of the display.

Thank you so very much Rudi!

I can now boot and it says v 3.6 on the boot screen. Apparently though, I'm running a minimal OS now? The synth's playable, but a lot of the menu options are missing.

After a second re-boot, there's a message saying "The operating system has to be re-loaded. Re-load Bank C?".

Since I'm scared to mess things up further, I've left the Voyager on at this point. Should I proceed and reload Bank C, or is there another procedure to follow?

Regards
/Jonas

Hi slirak,

make this after power on:
when the Voyager asks for bank "C" leave "NO" and press ENTER.
in the MASTER menu go to "Receive Update" and send bank "A".
now when the Voyager asks for bank "C" select "YES" and ENTER and
send bank "C" to the Voyager. Do the same thing with bank "D".

Maybe after the complete update the display is dark again, then do it as I described above.

Have fun,
Rudi

Thanks again Rudi, this worked perfectly and my Voyager is fully back to life now! Both the OS and Boot version says 3.6.

Is there any updated documentation for the new features?
