Read the Fabulous Manual. Pages 39-41 refer to sending firmware updates via MIDI.

What manual are you talking about? I’ve read the LP and Slim ones but could not find such references other than p.41-43: Sysex menu description.

I only found that current preset transmission, all presets transmission or bulk dump transmission were possible.
Bulk dump contains presets, global data and performance data but firmware seems not to be transmitted this way. Actually I can’t see any way to send the firmware from a instrument.

Stiiiiive,

Moog Phatty SE II Users Manual
March 16, 2014 at page 41:

"The LP will display a ‘RX FIRMWARE’ message when a firmware update is transmitted. Additional status messages may appear on the second line of the display as the transmission executes. After the firmware update is completed, the LP will automatically reset. "

Yep, I read that but I think ColeGaskins meant he had the said version already installed in one of his Slims, not on a computer.

The manual does not describe any procedure for transmitting an OS from a Slim, does it?

The page I referenced above is in the sysex part of the manual, right after midi sysex bulk dump. It appears from the manual that if you conduct a sysex bulk dump from one Little or Slim to another, there is an option for receiving the firmware update from the sending unit. I have not done this myself.

Sorry to be the one insisting here but I’m having hard time trying to find that…

In the said section C (SYSEX Menus), there are the following subsections (the actual menu items):
- SEND CURRENT PRESET
- SEND ALL PRESETS
- BULK DUMP that says: “This option allows you to save the entire state of the LP (including all global data, performance set data and preset data) for later recovery. To execute a bulk dump, enable the device that is to receive the SysEx data. Once your remote SysEx device is enabled, press ENTER to start the data transfer.
Those are about sending sysex and no firmware seems to be mentioned.

Then there is a section titled Receiving SysEx Data, with the following subsections:
- SINGLE PRESETS
- ALL PRESETS
- BULK DUMP that says: ” The LP will display a ‘RECEIVING BULK DUMP’ message when a bulk
dump is transmitted.

- FIRMWARE UPDATES that says: “The LP will display a ‘RX FIRMWARE’ message when a firmware update is transmitted. Additional status messages may appear on the second line of the display as the transmission executes. After the firmware update is completed, the LP will automatically reset.

What I read here is just how the instrument will behave while receiving a firmware update. Am I right?

After that, the System Utilities Menus section (section D) starts.

I really cannot see anything about transmitting the firmware from an instrument in here.

Have I missed the obvious here?...

I'm pretty sure there is no way to do this. I believe the RX Firmware is displayed when Phatty is receiving the update transmission.

Also the S in file name stands for Stage edition whereas the Slim has no S and the Tribute edition would have a T. So I think you're all good!

Woah, I want to make a rack like that! Care to show how you did it?


I measured the sides of the SP, and made a 2D design in Adobe Illustrator (you could use inkscape or other free alternatives). I lasercut the design in plywood and painted it black. Maybe i'll put the design up for download on thingiverse (with a large format 3D printer, you could also print it i suppose) in the future.

I haven't experimented enough to know if note priority settings play into this behavior

Anyone still having firmware download issues, post here. There’s a piece of software you have to have on your computer to load the firmware. Must be done from a computer, no apparent way to do it synth to synth.
