Is the DT25 v2.0 firmware update worthwhile if I intend just to continue controlling through an HD300?

I have the DT25 head and use a Pod HD300 for all presets and adjustments - don't have a midi controller as such - so would the 2.0 firmware upgrade to the head achieve any extra tones or flexibility? i think not but would welcome views.

won't really add anything, except when using the amp standalone. although they may have done some undocumented tweaks to the model defaults...

meaning it could change your tones a little...

they did change some things for the DT50's (regarding a boost tube that doesn't exist on the DT25)

personally i'd do it, just to be certain that any work they;'ve done with fixes etc would be done....

realistically i don't think it'd matter much if you didn't do it..

I would as they may have sightly updated the way L6 link works. Also in the future they will regression test the HD300 firmware against other devices that will be running their latest firmware.

I rolled mine back to v1.0 after a couple of days. I use my DT25 with an HD500. My patches (lots of them) significantly changed with v2.0. There were bigger volume differences between topologies.  Most of my patches became quite a bit louder. It seemed to lessen the distortion on some of my more rockin'  patches. It effected the way my compressor settings interacted with delays, reverbs and modulations.

But,it was no problem to roll it back to v1.0 so why not try it. You won't know if it'll make you happy unless you try it and you'll be up to date.

I just didn't want to re-tweak all my setting that I'm very happy with. You have to love the DT-HD combo!

Thanks guys - I've tried to do it and it hasn't worked - cheap £3/$5 usb midi cable may be to blame - same error code that lots of folks have mentioned on here. Can't win them all.
