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.
