Upload the file ”secon25x.mid” only if not discribed in a different way in the read-me file which comes with the softwareversion. The single and multi-sounds in ”secon25x.mid” are being stored into theflash-ROM (like the operating system) and can be accessed via bank C and DIf you’ve already created and stored sounds into your VIRUS, you should perform abulk dump into your sequencer, for safety reasons (this can be done in the MIDImenu which can be accessed by pressing the CONTROL key) Installing the software update g Switch your VIRUS off. g Load the file ”first.mid” into your sequencer and make sure you have chosen theright MIDI channel and port settings. g Ensure that the MIDI clock option is disabled (mixing SysEx data and the MIDIclock can lead to malfunctions of your MIDI interface). g Hold the STORE key while switching your VIRUS on until the display shows”SYSTEM UPDATE Receive”. g Now press the STORE key again to activate the receive mode. g Start your sequencer to playback the MIDI-file.At this stage, you should be able to watch the VIRUS counting up the received blocks.If the display shows ”RECEPTION FAILED,” then a transmission error has occurred. Thiscan be caused by a buffer overrun of the MIDI interface. In this case, you will need toupload the entire file again. Lower the tempo of your sequencer before uploading(e.g. 60 bpm). To proceed, press any key followed by STORE which will again enablethe receive mode.After a successful upload, press STORE to burn the new operating system into theflash-ROM.  Software AddendumKapitel | 4Never switch off the VIRUS while burning the data! Please ensure stable powerconditions during this procedure which should take approximately 30 seconds. Assoon as the new software version is successfully burned, the VIRUS will request thatyou switch off. After switching the VIRUS on again, you can use the new operatingsystem!If you get the impression that the VIRUS is behaving unstable or indeed strange, wesuggest you perform a system reset. Holding the keys LFO 1 SHAPE and LFO 2SHAPE while switching the VIRUS on, performs a system reset. No data will be lostduring this procedure, although some system settings as ”Soft Thru” will be reset.Enjoy the new features,yours VIRUS-Developer-Team,Summer 1999  Installing the software update
