Hey guys! Here’s an update to Midihub and the Editor - it brings macOS M1 support as well as many fixes for the UI and the high DPI displays, some bug fixes and improvements to Midihub’s pipes, including Pitch Shift parameter for Delay pipe, revamped Equalizer pipe so it can apply curves to many more kinds of messages, Base Note & Frequency for Micro Scale pipe, and more. There’s also some usability improvements in the UI like better messaging when overwriting another preset slot, or when the Editor is not connected to Midihub. The Editor will now produce telemetry data so we know how well it performs and which areas we should focus on. A What’s New dialog was added to the Editor so from now on it will provide more details on the new versions and provide smoother upgrade experience for both firmware and Editor software.
New Firmware Upgrade Procedure (same as in 1.11.8)
First make sure to install the 1.11.8 editor. Then on connecting to the device, if there’s an update available you’ll be offered to start the upgrade procedure. Confirming it will then go on to download the new firmware image, save a backup of the current memory contents to disk, do the flash procedure and restore the backup back into memory.
Otherwise, you may also do
Help->Check for Updates Now... while connected to Midihub to start the automatic upgrade procedure.
Download firmware image linked above, and do
Device->Flash Firmware while Midihub is in regular mode. It will also backup and restore the memory data automatically.
Note: Starting firmware upgrade when Midihub is in bootloader mode will not save the memory contents, just in case, there’s a warning message when doing that to remind of this.
