RO'VED uses custom firmware that enables RO'VED’s extended interface capabilities. Do NOT install firmware designed for stock Plaits as this firmware will not work properly on RO'VED. Instead check this page for firmware updates.

How to update your RO'VED firmware:
Method 1 - WAV File:
Unplug all CV inputs/outputs from the module.
Connect the output of your audio interface/sound card to the MODE CV input.
Set the FREQUENCY knob to 12 o’clock.
Power on your modular system with TIMBRE knob pressed.
Make sure that no additional sound (such as email notification sounds, background music etc.) from your computer will be played during the procedure.
Make sure that your speakers/monitors are not connected to your audio interface - the noises emitted during the procedure are aggressive and can harm your hearing.
On non-studio audio equipment (for example the line output from a desktop computer), you might have to turn up the gain to the maximum.
When you are all set:
Play the firmware update file into the module. While the module receives data, the first group of 4 LEDs will act as vu-meter (2 or 3 LEDs are lit when the signal level is optimal), while the remaining 4 LEDs represent which proportion of the current packet has been received. Try adjusting the FREQUENCY knob to adjust gain. When the end of the audio file is reached, the module automatically restarts - if it is not the case, please retry the procedure from the beginning.
In case the signal level is inadequate, all LEDs will blink in red. Press any knob and retry with a higher gain. If this does not help, please retry the procedure from another computer/audio interface, and make sure that no piece of equipment or software effect (equalizer, automatic gain control, FX processor) is inserted in the signal chain.
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.
