There are a couple of ways to go about the upgrade, but they would require a hardware (blank) EPROM and an EPROM burner (no MIDI upgrade possible on these older models). If the folks on the forum are looking to purchase a new EPROM for BEHRINGER a product, these are available through our recommended EPROM supplier, Swell Sound. A link to this site is below:

Detailed EPROM ordering information is on the Swell Sound site. Please note that Swell Sound prefers contact by email, and have therefore not provided us with a phone number. I should also note that the V1.4 firmware we provided is a "beta" revision specifically designed to attempt a fix for the problem cited in this incident - so the firmware would have to be provided to SwellSound in order for them to provide a finished, burned EPROM. You may want to consider choosing a designated volunteer to test the fix first prior to unleashing the hounds on SwellSound... ;-)
Some "obligatories" below...
We recommend using our authorized service centers to install the EPROM chip if this is not comfortable to perform by the end-user, and a list of our centers is available on our website at the following link:
Here are some warnings we tend to include as well:
You must remove the cover of your BEHRINGER unit to add/exchange EPROMs. Electrical current from power cables can be hazardous. DO NOT REMOVE THE COVER OF YOUR BEHRINGER UNIT UNLESS YOU ARE QUALIFIED TO DO SO. To avoid personal injury or equipment damage, disconnect the attached power cords before you open the unit cover. Do not operate the BEHRINGER unit without the cover in place. Failure to take these precautions may result in personal injury and system damage.
Do not make mechanical or electrical modifications to the equipment. BEHRINGER is not responsible for regulatory compliance of a modified BEHRINGER product. If you are not confident of your own ability to perform this action, then please contact one of our authorized service centers or the dealership from where the unit was purchased.
