How can I download and perform the new OS 2.0 firmware update on Quantum?

Created on: 11/18/19 - CW 47 – Last changed on: 4/6/20 - CW 15

Please download the newest OS from your myWaldorf account. Only load the firmware, not the Init image.

Unzip the file and put the quantum.update.bin file onto the main directory of an SD card. The card must be in FAT32 format. It doesn't have to have special certifications, just any standard SD card will do. Also, there's no size requirements for the card. There must be at least 10MB of free memory on the card. Preferrably there should be no other files present on the card.

Insert the SD card into Quantum upside down.

Go to Global>System>Info and press Update. Quantum will then update itself and reboot automatically.

WARNING: While the update is running, do not switch off Quantum and do not disconnect the instrument from mains power!

If Quantum was on version 1.3.1 or lower and you're updating to version 2.0 or higher, reboot after the update may take several minutes. Otherwise, the procedure will take less than a minute.

After the firmware update, it might be necessary to recalibrate the pitch bend and mod wheel. See here for a detailed guide.
