M5 FIRMWARE UPDATE INSTRUCTIONS

 

NEEDED:

  • A MIDI interface that connects to your computer via USB (download the current Driver for it if you don't have it installed)
  • 2 MIDI cables (or a MIDI interface such as the M-Audio Uno that comes with attached MIDI cables)

NOTE: Line 6 recommends a name brand USB to MIDI interface produced by an audio company that supports/updates their drivers. Good choices include: M-Audio, Edirol, E-Mu and MOTU. These interfaces have proven to be more robust and reliable when it comes to large MIDI transfers.

  • For further infomation on MIDI connectivity and interfaces, please go over the following MIDI Document
  • Line 6 Monkey 1.35 or higher installed. Download and install the Line 6 Monkey software here

Procedure

  1. Connect your MIDI interface to your computer via USB cable.
  2. Connect the M5 MIDI Out to your MIDI interface In, and connect the M9/M5 MIDI In to your MIDI interface Out.
  3. Launch the Line 6 Monkey 1.35 (or higher) with the M5 connected via the MIDI interface and powered on.
  4. Select the Flash Memory line item and click the Update Selection button to install the flash memory update into the M9/M5.
  5. The device will receive the firmware data and the unit will be updated to the latest Firmware. It sometimes takes 30 seconds to 1 minute to appear like the unit is receiving the update and takes several minutes to complete. The M5 will re-initialize when the update is complete.
