Hello… My first post to the group… I’ve been into Euro Modular for almost 7 years now. I now have a very large system which includes 7 MI modules (just added Beads).
I cannot get Braids to accept the V1.8 wav file. No matter what I do, I get the “QSYN” message as soon as the file starts to play. I am following the update procedure to the letter. Here’s what I did…
Power-up braids with encoder pressed, “RDY”, plugged in the cable directly from the headphone output on my laptop to the FM input on Braids. Play the wav file (Windows media player, volume on full, laptop volume on full.) “QSYN” as soon as the file starts playing. Press the encoder again, back to “RDY” to try again, and again, and again…
I thought maybe I’m not getting enough level… Connected laptop output to a line to euro module to boost the level and monitored with an O-Scope… Tried again, very many times, very many different levels… no good.
I read a past post where it was suggested that a power supply issue could cause this to happen. I doubted this very much as my system draws about 8 amps at +12v and it’s run on a 30amp linear supply so there’s no inrush issues or other such nonsense. Just the same, I removed Braids from my system, placed it in a completely empty rack, all by itself, tried again, multiple times… no joy.
So where does this leave me? I’m concerned about this because besides wanting to update from V1.7 to V1.8, I have a Clouds That’s I’d love to try some alternate firmware on. I’m hoping to find a solution.
Could the actual file be corrupt?
