Re: What happened to OS 3.6

Whoa, whoa, wait...wut? I've been on the 12/06/2010 3.6 for the last couple years for my XL. I just saw this and DL'd the version posted and, while still 3.6, the create date of the 3.6 syx files are, indeed, 05/30/2016. The actual downloaded .zip still shows it being 3.6_beta. I'm happy to keep my voyager up-to-date, but are there actual differences/bug fixes, etc? Is this update more like a 3.7? I'm really not wanting to take unnecessary chances with my baby.

*edit* if this is an actual update, then do any of you have the update instructions?

Ok, so is there any difference in the OS in Version 3.6 for the Voyager XL and Version 3.6 for the Voyager. As I am new to Voyagers, and I have an XL, I am not up to speed on the various idiosyncrasies if any exist. Guidance is certainly appreciated.

Where does one find the May, 2016 3.6 Voyager OS. If its on the Moog website it is well hidden, or I am seriously browser challenged.

Ok, thanks in advance for those that are will to help us newbies. I have downloaded the XL_3.6_Beta from the links provided above. Expanding the download I get four files, XL_Bank_360_A, B, C and D, with a May 30, 2016 file date.

What exactly are contained in these files. I am assuming a beta update to the OS. Do these represent also represent patch files as well or is that just a peculiarity in the nomenclature. I know this is probably very elemental but I am new to the Moog world with my XL and I want to be very careful as I do not want to do anything to "Brick" my synth.

Also is there any outline or "How To" regarding the update procedure. I do appreciate any and all guidance.

One more question, and thanks for everyones indulgence, can you revert to OS Version 3.5 if you have version 3.6 installed? I am having and issue with the "Edit" button on my XL not working and thinking is might be a OS/software issue. Thanks everyone again.

Do we follow the same 3.5 instructions when going from older 3.6 to new 3.6? B-D-A-C?

I followed those instructions and it worked fine. Far from being a buggy beta, it works great.

BTW,
here's the link for the update instruction:

Of course you can load an older version but it makes no sense for me.

Have fun,

Thanks RL! I'm going to run the update this morning. Strange, LivePsy ran the update as B-D-A-C and it worked. Your instructions from that 2014 post says to run B-A-C-D. Does it matter?

Hi benulous

No, when there's no ERROR message after power on everything is fine.
The Voyager always checks the OS files A,C and D after power on and if there would be a wrong bit you would see an error after power on. The reason to start with bank B has to do with the LCD contrast and it's better to start with bank B (this is the boot system).
Have fun,
Rudi

I understand the version from May 2016 should have a different number from the 2010 version ain't it? Something like 3.6.1 if there is nothing new but some fixes...

I have some questions:

1) What differences are there between OS 3.6 and 3.5?

2) Is 3.6 not available at MoogMusic.com simply because it is a beta version, and if so, is a final version going to be available at some point?

3) Does MoogMusic.com have anything to do with OS 3.6 or is it a personal side project of RL?


Thanks

Hi DonatDude,

I fixed two bugs: the MIDI in Velocity bug and the touch surface A bug (50%/100% amount settings).
I'm working the last 6 years from time to time on the OS and I guess I forgot some differences.
Here are a few new functions:
MIDI Enables
MIDI clock output
Storing with pressing 2x the MASTER button is selectable
MIDI Controllers for the ENV Gate foot switch is selectable
Pressing ENTER only for changes of the ext. input pot is selectable
.

Greg, help me out here :)
