PM5D V2 Firmware V2.26 (Previous version)

Important Notice

  • Make sure to unplug the cable connected to the rear-panel HA REMOTE connector during the update operations. Especially on the PM5D-RH, this may cause the internal head amps to be uncontrollable. If this happens, follow the procedures described in the upgrade guide.
  • Use the Editor with the supported firmware listed in the following table.

  • 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

  • Fixed a problem in which the signal processing and screen statuses were not identical when patching the same port simultaneously to each Insert Out in the Input/Output Patch library by for example, recalling a library which inserts the same GEQ module.
  • Fixed a problem in which the Fader Calibration screen did not appear when a problem was detected in the fader settings while the PM5D was started up.
  • Fixed a problem in which the previously entered numbers were cleared by pressing the next key when you entered the same number as the currently recalled scene number from the external keyboard connected to the PM5D unit. For example, if you attempted to recall scene 123 with scene 012 recalled, the entered numbers "1" and "2" would be cleared and scene 003 would be recalled instead. When you enter a wrong scene number from the external keyboard, the number can be cleared and reentered by pressing the <.> key.

Fixed Bugs (Cascade mode)

  • Fixed a problem in which the DCA group with the DCA LEVEL/MUTE in the CASCADE LINK settings turned on was not excluded from the scene recall operations from the cascade master (even if the DCA group was excluded from the recall operations with the Recall Safe or Selective Recall function) when multiple PM5D units were cascade-connected.
  • Fixed a problem in which the meters of the channels other than the currently selected channel and the adjacent channels did not move when the PM5D and the DSP5D units were cascade-connected and the DSP5D was selected for the PM5D panel operation under the following conditions.
    - The same metering point was specified for the channel strip meters and for the meters at the top of the top panel.
    - The meter of a different layer was displayed on the channel strip meters and the meters at the top of the top panel.
    - A specific screen such as EQ or COMP was displayed.
  • Fixed a problem in which the GR indicator of the channel that uses no COMP/GATE function flashed instantaneously by switching the channel layers with a screen other than COMP or GATE screen displayed, when the PM5D and the DSP5D units were cascade-connected and the DSP5D was selected for the PM5D panel operation.
  • Fixed a problem in which the GR meter continued to display the maximum value on the panel or screen of the selected channel and its paired channel when the PM5D and the DSP5D units were cascade-connected and the DSP5D was selected for the PM5D panel operation under the following conditions. To fix this problem, update the DSP5D firmware as well as the PM5D firmware.
    - VERTICAL PAIR was selected for the PAIR MODE.
    - GATE and/or COMP of the selected and its paired channels were set to ON.
    - A different layer was selected for the INPUT channel strip meters and for the meters at the top of the top panel.
