This firmware includes fader timing optimizations & general improvements.

  1. Make sure that your MidiPlus FIT is powered on and connected to your computer via USB.

    Windows will prompt that this application is ‘unrecognized’.
    Simply click ‘More Info’ > Run anyway.
  6. Once launched, click Browse.

Once the unit powers up, it will display the new firmware version and the relevant mode that FIT is currently on. To learn more about switching between different modes according to your needs, please refer to Page 3 of the FIT user guide. Note that HUI/Mackie modes are available since v1.1.6.
