How to update your RO'VED firmware:

Method 1 - WAV File Procedure

Preparation Steps:

1. Ensure Safety:

  • Disconnect all CV inputs/outputs from the RO'VED module.

  • Make certain your speakers/monitors are disconnected from your audio interface. This is crucial as the noises during this procedure can be harsh and potentially damaging to your ears.

2. Set Up the Module:

  • Link your audio interface or sound card's output directly to the MODE CV input on the RO'VED module.

  • Position the FREQUENCY knob at its 12 o’clock setting.

  • Boot up your modular system while holding down the TIMBRE knob.

3. Optimize Computer Settings:

  • Ensure that all potential interruptions, like email notifications or any other sounds from your computer, are muted or turned off for the duration of the update.

  • If you're using non-professional audio equipment, like a standard computer's line output, it might be necessary to max out the gain.

Update Procedure:

4. Begin the Update:

  • Play the designated firmware update WAV file into the module.

5. Monitor the Update:

  • As the module processes the data:

    • The first group of 4 LEDs functions as a signal strength indicator. An optimal signal level is shown by 2 or 3 LEDs being illuminated.

    • The next set of 4 LEDs display the proportion of the present data packet being received.

  • If necessary, tweak the FREQUENCY knob to fine-tune the gain.

6. Completion:

  • Upon playing the entire audio file, the module should automatically reboot. If this doesn't happen, you'll need to begin the procedure again from the start.

7. Troubleshooting:

  • If the signal strength is suboptimal, every LED will flash red. In this scenario:

    • Push any knob and attempt again with an increased gain.

    • Confirm that there's no software effect or equipment, like equalizers, auto gain controls, or FX processors, intervening in the signal pathway.

    • If issues persist, consider trying the update using a different computer or audio interface.

Method 2 - HEX File (For advanced users):

If you own a STLINK programmer you can use the HEX file to update your module firmware.

On the back of the module there is SWD interface that you can connect to your programmer.
