What is the difference from V1.0 to 1.1 to 1.2 to 1.3?
The answer is no one knows..... Behringer fixes little things and they don't usually release what was done. We only knew this time since it was REW that uncovered a problem...

Re: Revised Firmware V1.4 for the DSP1124P with V1.3 ONLY!

Recently, I also returned my DSP1124P to my vendor (still under 2yr warranty). Today, I received a new packet from Behringer Germany directly: An FBQ 2496. The DSP1124P does not seem to be produced anymore, so Behringer simply decided to exchange my device.

Of course, the 2496 has less presets than the old 1124P, but, still, a fair deal.

I should say it was a good deal. A higher price and far better specs.............

Re: Revised Firmware V1.4 for the DSP1124P with V1.3 ONLY!

Hi Folks,

I have installed the V1.4 eprom from Hobbyroms.com in my DSP1124p.

I tested one of the MIDI commands so far- the Gain setting command, which is controller 16.
It is supposed to accept data values from 0 to 64 and sets the gain from -48 to +16dB on whatever filter is currently selected.
I manually put a filter in parametric mode at a freq of 1KHz and wide bandwidth. I was able to ramp the gain up and down on the filter using an external MIDI controller with scrollwheel. The results were audible and the display showed the gain changing.

I am satisfied that the MIDI functions are now working correctly and will now try out the Room EQ Wizard to see what it can do.

Thanks to all involved in making this fix available.

A local retailer is getting a couple of the 1124s in this week and I was thinking about picking one up. Will it have shipped with version 1.3 or 1.4? Any guesses? I really do not want to mess with the chip surgery.

Impossible to tell. Power up the units in the store and see what the version number is. Then you can make a decision. If you don't want to play with the prom, then get a 2496 instead.

Thanks -- beyond that, does anyone know if they are even shipping units with the new firmware, or all of these inventoried units that were built 8 months ago that are being released now?

As BruceK said, there is no way to tell except to go to the store and power up the unit while holding down the Filter Select button and read the Version # displayed. Those units could have been manufactured three weeks or three years ago. There is no way DEFINITE way to tell unless you physically verify it.

Really not a big deal anymore. Just order the V1.4 firmware chip from Steph at http://www.hobbyroms.com and for $10 and for a some very easy effort, you are all set.
Remember, if you are not going to use the midi jacks, you don't need it. That being said, I could not live with that myself whether I was using the midi jacks or not...
