PM5D V2 Firmware V2.20 (Previous version)

PM5DV2/ DSP5D Compatibility (Win)

Use the Editor software only with a supported firmware version.

PM5D V2 Editor DSP5D Editor Studio Manager V2 Host PM5D V2 Firmware DSP5D Firmware

  • PM5DV2 user data is compatible with later firmware versions, but not with lower firmware versions. Cross-platform compatibility is provided for setup data which is directly saved to a compact flash memory via the PM5DV2, or saved as a ".PM5" file using the Editor application.

Note for Cascade Connection Mode

  • Be sure that the same firmware version is installed on all PM5DV2 units when you use more than two PM5DV2 units in cascade connection mode.
  • Be sure to install the latest versions when you use the PM5DV2 and DSP5D in cascade connection mode.

Main Revisions and Enhancements

Fixed Bugs

  • Two DSP5D units now can be cascade-connected and used (PM5D-DSP5D-DSP5D, PM5D-DCU5D-DSP5D-DSP5D, PM5D-DCU5D-DSP5D-DCU5D-DSP5D).
  • Fixed a problem in which the cascade-connected DSP5D units could not properly load a file containing CASCADE TYPE or word clock settings different from the current settings.
  • The DSP5D version and the internal battery status are not now shown when the PM5D and the DSP5D are cascade-connected but the connection is disabled. This is because the DSP5D internal battery was shown incorrectly as "No Battery" when the cascade-connection was disabled.
  • A word clock source incapable of serving as the master clock now cannot be selected on the WORD CLOCK screen when the PM5D and the DSP5D are cascade-connected.
  • After the DSP5D internal memory initialization is complete, the leftmost OUT [TX] LED now keeps flashing until the power is turned off and then on again (the LED used to turn off in about 10 seconds). The four LEDs now flash from the left repeatedly during the initialization (the LEDs used to flash once).
  • When the PM5D/DSP5D for which the cascade-connection is enabled is turned off and then on again, the cascade-connection now becomes enabled automatically. Until the cascade-connection is enabled, a "Waiting for Auto Cascade Sync" message is now shown. To cancel the cascade-connection being enabled, select machine #1 (PM5D) then disable the cascade-connection using the CASCADE ENABLED/DISABLED button.
  • Fixed a problem in which the PM5D-RH was disconnected from the AD8HR and/or the AD8HR gain setting was changed to 6-dB steps when five or more AD8HR units were connected to the PM5D-RH for extended periods.
  • Scenes are now recalled faster when the PM5D and the DSP5D are cascade-connected.
  • Fixed a problem in which the fader levels shown on the FADER ASSIGN screen sometimes differed from the actual levels.
  • Fixed a problem in which the CH to MIX and MIX to MATRIX parameters were not recalled properly when a scene in which MIX channels were paired during PREVIEW was recalled.
  • Fixed a problem in which the previous effects sometimes kept being applied when a scene that would change the internal effects to the GEQ modules was recalled.

Known issue

  • When the cascade-connection between the PM5D and the DSP5D is enabled, a scene for which the trigger condition is specified using INTERVAL on the EVENT LIST screen is occasionally skipped. To make sure the scene is properly recalled, specify the trigger condition using TIME CODE.
