Applies to: Impulse
We recommend suing the original USB cable for this update where possible.
Download and install SysEx Librarian. This be found by following the link below:
Download the attached .syx file. Hold down the 'Shift', '+' and '-' buttons of the Impulse then connect the USB cable. This will access the Boot menu. 'Exit' should be displayed on the Impulse's LCD.
Open SysEx Librarian and drag the attached .syx file into the SysEx Librarian window. Click on the 'Destination' menu and select 'Impulse'. Ensure that the .sys file is highlighted in blue by clicking on it. Click on the 'Play' button.
The Impulse's LCD should display the word 'Update'. Wait for the update to complete.
Please note you will then need to clear the Impulse from the MIDI Studio found in Finder > Applications > Utilities > Audio MIDI Setup. Once in this program, disconnect the Impulse and go to the Window menu and then MIDI Studio. Once here select the Impulse and click delete:
Note that you may need to do this even if you did the firmware update on another system.
