RME Intelligent Audio Solutions
Fireface UFX+, Digiface AVB, Digiface Dante
USB Flash Update Tool for Windows 7/8/10
Requires driver 0.9685 or higher
This Flash Update Tool will update the internal firmware to the following versions:
Fireface UFX+: Thunderbolt 109, USB 54, DSP 46
Digiface AVB: 239
Digiface Dante: 39
06/25/2021: UFX+ V 109/54/46. USB 2.0 did not work on some devices since version USB 53. Digiface AVB 239: Improved behavior of SteadyClock, PLL and phase control - brings faster sync to CRF format and corrected position of word clock edge and more. Input streams that are not in sync are muted.
06/01/2021: Digiface Dante V 39. Since v38 the stand-alone mode (MADI Dante converter) did not work anymore.
04/15/2021: Added mute which suppresses click noise when switching Single/Double/Quad speed while input monitoring is active. DURec: improved detection of connected USB devices with corrected error output for unusable devices. RF-64 files smaller than 2 GB can now be played. General: improved display switching when changing volumes on the host. Slightly less acceleration of encoders for better operation. Equalization of the level meter display of the phones levels at mono setting (High/Low).
03/22/2021: Digiface AVB V 230: Improved Mac adress.
03/18/2021: Digiface AVB V 229: Improved phase control of SteadyClock in Double and Quad Speed. V 228: Improved generation of the Entity ID to make sure it is unique.
03/09/2021: Digiface AVB V 227: Statistics counter improvements - requires RME AVB Controller 0.9550 or higher. When clocking to an AVB stream but without a valid input signal, a valid word clock signal is now available at the output. An output CRF stream is fixed to Single Speed (CRF96). Frequency information of incoming CRF streams is ignored. Several improvements in the AVB part of the clock circuit, like more accurate base frequencies, reduced jitter, improved phase control.
01/21/2021: UFX+: DSP V 45 USB V 52. Fixes double or not successfull boot into the desired interface mode. State of DIM is set upon boot. Digiface AVB: Adds support for statistic counters for improved Milan compatibility. Requires RME AVB Controller 0.9548 or higher. Statistic counters can be viewed through Hive.
09/17/2020: Digiface Dante V 37: Number of mixer nodes increased from 2048 to 4096. Requires TotalMix FX version 1.66 or higher.
05/13/2020: Digiface AVB V 219: Bugfix MAAP protocol did not work in version 217
05/08/2020: Digiface AVB V 217: Prevents possible CRC32 errors on slower FPGAs. UFX+ V 105/51/44: Bugfix CC mode, Clock setting was not possible from the iPad. Improved data flow control in asynchronous Class Compliant mode which now works perfectly even with critical hosts, and also brings improved varipitch lock with external clocking.
04/06/2020: Digiface AVB V 216 Improved compatibility to RME's M-series.
01/31/2020: Digiface AVB V 215: Supports routing for Milan compatibility

06/12/2019: Digiface AVB V 206: Now supports 64 channels (instead of 60) at 192 kHz (requires TotalMix FX 1.61 in driver 0.9685 or higher). Various performance improvements.
Digiface Dante V 36: Increased compatibility of the coaxial MADI Out. MIDI over MADI for MADI I/O added. Attention: This firmware version requires Net driver version 0.9406 or higher! Older driver versions are no longer compatible.
UFX+: Increased compatibility of the coaxial MADI Out.
01/10/2019: Digiface AVB v203: GET_AVB_INFO completed. Float format added to USB interface (not AVB) for upcoming Mac support.

V 50/42/102. USB3 version 50: Fixed support for the USB3 power save state U3 (broken functionality after Standby, mainly on newer Macs).
V 49/42/102. FX Send right channel had no audio. USB 2.0 Class Compliant Firmware timing improved.
V 47/41/100. DSP Firmware 41: Termination of the coaxial MADI In revised. DURec with ARC USB: Stop of the recording now requires to hit the Stop button 2 times. Extended timer to stay in DURec screen after connecting the USB record medium.
V 47/39/100. TB Firmware 100, USB 47: inverted phase for word clock in and out.
V 46/39/99: USB firmware 46: MIDI data present at the MIDI input port during boot of the device caused the MIDI port to become unusable.
V 44/39/99: Thunderbolt firmware 99: Display showed wrong FX Input Level Meter at Double and Quad Speed.
V 44/39/98: USB 3 workaround added for Surface Book / GenesysLogic USB Hub compatibility. Reduced resources for USB 2 improves compatibility with other devices on the same USB port. Fixed failing flash process when record/playback is active. Display changes to Volume screen when changing Volume at the host, also via ARC USB connected to the computer.
Recorded wav files now include source and channel info. To keep and make use of this info after processing them with the Wav File Batch Processor an updated version is available on the RME Website. Added new play modes: Repeat single, Repeat all, Single next (plays the current track and switches to the next one without playing it). Added new transport buttons: Previous file / Next file. These are shown in playback mode instead of Del and Record. With Pause active Previous/Next works without starting playback. Improved compatibility of DURec playback function. New functions Next/Previous added for stand-alone operation with ARC USB (buttons Snap 7 and Snap 8).
12/22/2016, V 40/37/98: MIDI over MADI Thunderbolt: Fixed bug in the MIDI inputs, that could cause a complete failure of the MIDI functionality. Audio transfer Tunderbolt: improved interrupt control. In previous versions the whole audio function could stop working.
12/14/2016, V 40/37/94: Show 'Record Disabled' on the first Record screen. Optimized changing the sample rate in stand-alone mode. Improved handling of Mute Groups on outputs and Speaker B. Bugfix for left channel mix settings set incorrectly when changing from stereo to mono in TotalMix FX. DSP load optimized.
09/05/2016: First public release to update the UFX+ to DSP v34.
How to use:
Start fut_usbplus_avb_dante.exe. The program will show you the current revision of your unit, and whether it needs an update or not. If so, then simply press the 'Update' button. A progress bar will indicate when the flash process is finished (Verify Ok).
If more than one unit is installed, all units can be flashed by changing to the next tab and repeating the process.
After the update the unit needs to be reset. This is done by powering down the unit for a few seconds. A reboot of the computer is not necessary.
When the update fails (status: failure), the unit's second BIOS will be used from the next cold boot on (Secure BIOS Technology). Therefore the unit stays fully functional. The flash process should then be tried again on a different computer.

- ADI-2 DAC: The record channels have been renamed from Analog to SPDIF.
V 0.9619 (01/08/2018)
- Using more than one interface, the order of the ASIO channels can now be defined in the Settings dialog, tab About, with two different sorting methods. This feature brings them into the desired order, and also prevents random changes, for example after reboot.
- Change in the Installer to prevent ASIO rights problems with non-admin accounts
V 0.9616 (11/27/2017)

- Added new transport buttons: Previous file / Next file. With Pause active Previous/Next works without starting playback.
- The list of files on the medium is no longer blocked during record/playback. During playback this also allows to pre-select the next file to be played.
- The DURec Info dialog entry 'Remaining Time' now shows the same info as the unit as 'Remain (Rec.)' - the remaining time of the current recording (which is limited to 100 files), not the theoretical max record time of the medium.
An updated Wave File Batch Processor 1.2 is available on the RME website, handling the new DURec meta data as described in the updated manuals of UFX+ and UFX II.

- Digitally signed for Windows 7, 8 und 10 (including Redstone)
- Bugfix ASIO: ADAT channels were not reduced at Double and Quad Speed
New in TotalMix FX 1.35:
- The minimum delay time for Echo has been reduced to 0 for MADIface Pro. Note that the lowest real delay is the current ASIO buffer size x 2, because this devices render the FX on the host CPU.
- General improvement on stability when TM FX is already running and a device is switched on
- Phantom power and mic gain can now be controlled via page 1 when OSC is set to use 8 channels
- Cue via remote control now works even when 'Cue/PFL to' is not set to Main (but Phones etc)

- DAW mode added. This simplified alternative interface is for anyone performing all monitoring and routing within the DAW software, so not using TotalMix FX. The DAW mode restarts TM FX into a simpler version with just two rows, no playback row, and no mixing faders in the input row. Routing is 1:1 only. Just gain, phantom power control (if existing) and hardware output levels can be set.
