02R96V2 Firmware V2.40 for Win/Mac OSX/OS9

Fixed Bug
  • Fixed a problem that when the 02R96 was used with an MY8-AE96(S) inserted to the slot and a certain channel input signal was unlocked or failed in synchronization, noise was generated to another channel input signal.

02R96V2 Firmware V2.30 for Win/Mac OSX , OS9

  • The 02R96 now supports the MY16-CII card with the following restrictions.
    - The card is shown as "MY16-C" on the LCD display, since it has the same ID as the MY16-C.
    - As with the MY16-C, the 02R96 does not support CobraNet serial communication.
Fixed Bug
  • Fixed a problem that the MY16MADI64 card made by AudioService was recognized incorrectly as the MY8-AE when the card was inserted into the slot (occurring in V2.23 and V2.24). The card is now recognized as MY16-AT when the Mode switch is set at 56ch/64ch and MY8-AE96 when the switch is set at DFS.

02R96V2 Firmware V2.23 for Win/Mac OSX/OS9

New Features
  • There was a problem that some MY-Cards were occasionally not recognized properly when inserted into a slot, which sometimes prevented the console from being launched, and showed an error message indicating that the consumption current exceeded the limit. The new version has fixed the problem by changing the determination method for MY-Cards.

02R96V2 Firmware V2.22 for Win/Mac OSX/OS9

Fixed Bugs
  • A bug regarding RECALL SAFE is fixed. When recalling a scene which contains different group assignments from the current scene, the group assignments change even if Recall Safe is set for these channels. The bug is fixed in this version.

02R96V2 Firmware V2.21

New Features
  • The following effect programs are added to the Effects library to correspond to the new Add-On Effects Packages, AE041 (Surround Post Package) and AE051 (Vintage Stomp Package).
    1. [No.62] Room ER
    2. [No.63] Auto Doppler
    3. [No.64] Field Rotation
    4. [No.65] Max100
    5. [No.66] Vintage Phaser
    6. [No.67] Dual Phaser
  • Turn on the power while holding down the [INTERNAL EFFECTS] key in the EFFCTS/PLUGINS section. Then Add-On Effects Demo Function works. All Add-On Effects, AE011, AE021, AE031, AE041 and AE051 are available for 10 minutes. 10 minutes later, if there are some Add-On Effects that have not been installed, the LCD display shows the message, "End of Add-On Effect Demo Mode (10 min. up)." and the effects will be muted and not be available. [NOTE] If you use the scene data for recalling this function in a normal mode, the effect that has not been installed will not be recalled and the previous effect will remain.
    1. AE011 (Channel Strip Package)
    2. AE021 (Master Strip Package)
    3. AE031 (Reverb Package)
    4. AE041 (Surround Post Package)
    5. AE051 (Vintage Stomp Package)
  • New parameters, "xxx ON TALLY"(xxx = channel number) are added as trigger signal sources in the GPI OUTPUT section. If you select them, the GPI OUTPUT is linked to ON/OFF of the corresponding channel. The minor bugs to set these parameters have been also fixed.
  • Some parameters of THX presets (THXD, THXF and THXM) prepared as a bass management set for surround monitoring have been changed. HPF1,2,3 have been changed from "80-12L"(Linkwitz) to "80-12"(Butterworth).
  • As the preference of "Ch Numeric Disp OFF" is to cancel the function that the channel strip display switches to show the parameter value when channel faders or encoders are operated, this preference was not useful when the faders were used as GEQ controllers. So we have changed the behaviour never to cancel this function when the faders are used as GEQ controllers.
Fixed Bugs
  • System software V2.20 has a bug not to recognize the MY16-AT card at SLOT1. This bug is fixed in this version.
  • When receiving a scene protect parameter from Studio Manager, the console sent a program change message to other MIDI equipment which was connected to the console. This bug is fixed in this version.

02R96V2 Firmware V2.13

Fixed Bugs
  • The warning message for a low battery, which appears when the power switch is turned on, is changed. A pop-up message is added besides the blinking warning message. (The pop-up message remains visible until the OK button is pressed or a new page is selected on the LCD).
