  • 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.

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

New Functions

  • The GAIN and +48V parameters of the internal head amplifier can now be transmitted or received as control change messages (NRPN).
  • The HPF ON and HPF Frequency parameters of an external head amplifier can now be saved in the scene memories.


  • To improve the quietness and durability of motor faders, fader speed was adjusted. Scene recall times and other performance specifications were not modified.

Fixed Bugs

  • Fixed a problem in which the control change messages (NRPN) could not be transmitted even if the HPF of the INPUT channel was switched to ON/OFF.

Performance Limits and Specifications

  • They are the same as V1.10.
