Applies to: K-Station
The K Station is showing a 'Packet Error' on the screen to show it has received a packet error during the data transmission. If this happens, the OS isn't uploaded to the K-Station's flash memory.
Switch off your K-Station and try again. If this happens repeatedly try using a SysEx application to send the OS to the synth.
Sysex Librarian for Mac (snoize.com) and MIDI-OX for PC (midiox.com) are both free to download from and will reliably send data to your K-Station. The latest OS is available in SysEx format from the downloads section of our website.
When using SysEx Librarian, ensure the synth is connected and ready to receive the OS before starting the program. In SysEx Librarian, select the relevant MIDI output from the 'destination' drop-down menu, click on 'Add...' and select the OS file to send to the synth. To send the data click 'play'.
In MIDI-OX, make sure the synth is connected and ready to receive the OS before starting the program. In MIDI-OX select 'SysEx...' from the 'view' menu to open the SysEx scratchpad window. In the SysEx scratchpad window select 'load file...' from the 'command window' menu and select the OS file to send to the synth.
To send the data click 'send SysEx file...' from the 'file' menu.
In MIDI-OX you can increase the SysEx buffer size by selecting 'configure buffers...' from the 'options' menu. If you continue to get packet errors when using MIDI-OX, double the buffer size until the OS update completes.
