Updating the VS-890 Operating System from Standard MIDI Files Use the following procedure to update the VS-890. The updated software is provided as eight Standard MIDI Files, on a DOS or Macintosh formatted disk. The tools required are: *MIDI sequencer (software or hardware) that can load DOS or Macintosh Standard MIDI Files *MIDI cable *VS-890 *VS-890 System Software update disk Update Procedure 1) Connect the MIDI OUT port of the sequencer to the MIDI IN port of the VS-890. 2) Hold down CH EDIT button 7 and STATUS button 7 while powering on the VS-890. The message "System Update?" will be displayed. 3) Press YES. The message "Waiting MIDI-EX" will be displayed. 4) Load the Standard MIDI Files into your sequencer. 5) Play all Standard MIDI Files into the VS-890 in sequential order. 6) After all SMF's have been played into the VS-890, the message "Update SysPRG?" will be displayed. Press YES. 7) The message "Please Reboot OK" will be displayed. The system software of the VS-890 has now been updated. 8) Restart the VS-890 (power off and then on again). The new system version will be displayed in the lower left corner of the display as the unit is booting up. * NOTE: Hardware sequencers are normally more reliable for transferring system exclusive MIDI data. We have tested these files with the following computer-based MIDI sequencing programs; Vision (Opcode), Performer (MOTU), Cubase (Steinberg/Jones), and Logic (Emagic). We were successful in updating the VS-890. Some sequencers do not send system exclusive messages that are embedded in a Standard MIDI File properly. These programs will not work for updating the operating system of the VS-890. Several Manufacturers have demo versions of their sequencer available on the internet that will work for this use. If you have problems with the update procedure check your MIDI/interface setup. (c)2001 Roland Corporation U.S. Updating the VS-890 Operating SystemDownload Driver Pack
