For best performance keep all myMix, IEX16 and myMix Control devices on the same firmware version.

    The zipped firmware update folder contains all files for the update and a pdf with instructions. Download and unpack the folder on your hard disk. myMix uses a "failsafe" update. Should you lose power or connection during the transfer, just start over, nothing will get damaged, as the new firmware gets installed in the first booting after the file transfer.

    Firmware versions: 

    1-23: First release, limited to 8 myMix, 16 channels, no IEX16, no play along, no send mix to network. Not compatible with any other version.

    1-45: Supports myMix and IEX16, with all features, does not support myMix Control

    1-51: First release for myMix Control. All devices need to be on 1.51 for myMix Control to operate. If you use myMix Control we recommend to update to 1.54

    1-54: Release, with best support for myMix Control. NOT COMPATIBEL to 1.51, or 1.45 due to new discovery for faster performance.

    1-68: Same features as 1.54 but with support for RX-2. If you don't use RX-2 you can stay with 1.54.

To update the myMix firmware you need:

  • a myMix compatible SD card ( 2GB to 16 GB) and format it in a myMix
  • Transfer the unzipped firmware files (iex.blob and myMix.blob) to the SD card
  • Insert the SD card into a myMix and check for the SD card symbol in the status bar to show the card is present
  • Power down the myMix
  • Press and hold Mute and Encoder button down, while powering up the myMix: a black screen will come with Firmware update
  • Wait for the firmware update until it says: "Done. Please reboot myMix."

The next time you power up your myMix, it will start with the new firmware.

To update the IEX16:

  • connect the network port to the myMix with the SD card and the iex blob file
  • Power down the IEX16 and select "Update Firmware on the myMix (Settings-Administration)
  • Power Up the IEX16
  • Wait for the 4th LED to show, then powercycle the IEX16. (Click here for the video)

To update myMix Control:

  • The firmware update folders contains a .bin file
  • Connect to the myMix PLug and log-in as "admin".
  • Click the Admin button on the home page
  • Scroll down to "Firmware Update" and click.
  • Select the new .bin file on your hard disk and hit "Apply", you'll see the log-in screen showing the new version number.
  • Wait 20 seconds and then power cycle the plug.

Information about SD Cards


Cards SD or SDHC cards can be used in myMix for multi-track recording and play back as well as firmware updates. There are many cards available on the market, but not all work with myMix and not all achieve the same quality result.

COMPATIBILITY

In order to work with myMix SDHC cards need to be compliant with the SDA 2.0 specification. From firmware version 1.41 on, myMix will check SD cards for SRC entries.  If these are not available, myMix will create an error message (CRC Error). In this case please use a different SD card (see recommendations below).  The biggest card size supported in myMix for recording  is 32 GB. For firmware updates SD cards should not exceed 16 GB.

PERFORMANCE

SD cards differ in performance such as reading and writing speed and quality of data (data errors in bad sectors). Especially recording onto a SD card is challenging.  myMix can record up to 16 mono or 8 stereo tracks plus the stereo mix. As 24-bit / 48kHz time-stamped wav-files this represents a 1,152 kBits/s data flow, per channel, so nearly 21 MB/s.  Also important are good sectors. There are software  tools available to check the actual performance of an SD card, such as h2testware. 

Recommendations

With the following cards we have achieve consistently good results**) for up to 12 channels:
  • Kingston Class 4: 4 GB, 8 GB, 16 GB
  • Transcend SDHC Class 4: 8 GB, 16 GB

With these SD cards we have achieved consistently good results**)  for up to 14 channels:
  • Transcend SDHC Class 6: 8 GB, 16GB 
  • Kingston SDHC Class 6 & Class 10: 8 GB, 16 GB
  • Transcend SDHC Class 10: 8 GB, 16 GB 

With these SD cards we achieved consistently good results**) with 16 channels:
  • Toshiba SDHC Class 10: 8 GB, 16 GB
  • ADATA SDHC Class10: 16GB, 32 GB
  • PNY Pro Elite UHS1/Class10: 16 GB, 32 GB 
  • Lexar Professional 600x: 16 GB, 32 GB  (best in our tests).
**) we tested several cards of the same make, but we can't guarantee for them.

Recording Time

The recording time is depending on the numbers of recorded channels and the size of the SD card. As an indicator a 16GB card can record 16 + 2 tracks for about 1 hour 40 minutes. Below some calculated values, the actual value depends on the individual card and is displayed in the myMix control bar next to the SD card symbol.

Important information about myMix and off-the-shelf Ethernet switches


Three or more myMix require an Ethernet switch (two myMix can be connected directly to each other). A myMix system with 16 or less channels, powered by the included power supplies, can use a standard 100Mb/s unmanaged Ethernet switch. The switch will simply forward all the data necessary for myMix to operate. You can also use POE (Power-Over-Ethernet) switches to power each myMix. a myMix requires about 15 watts. The best way to tell if a POE switch will power all of your myMix is to find the overall POE budget of the switch and divide that by 15. This will give you the number of myMix that can be powered by the switch. In case a switch has less POE budget  (e.g. 60 W) than your number of myMix (e.g. 6)  x 15, you can still use the external power supplied that ship with myMix to power the remaining units (e.g. 2). On a unmanaged switch you need to keep the myMix system exclusive and can't mix it with other traffic, as this might disturb the performance.

The current firmware allows a myMix network to contain up to 250 devices and manage a maximum of 500 audio channels.  For myMix systems with more than 16 audio channels a managed switch is required. While unmanaged switches work with myMix plug-and-play, managed switches need to be configured. 
the myMix network uses two VLANs: VLAN 1 = discovery, VLAN 2 = audio and clock.
Here a list of the most important topics (different manufacturers use different nomenclature):
Create a VLAN 2 (VLAN 1 is set by default).
Under Port Settings, set all ports within VLAN 2 to General
Under VLAN to Ports, set all ports within VLAN 2 to Tagged
Creating VLAN2 is mandatory to transport audio, for more than 16 audio channels additional multicast filtering is needed:
IGMP Snooping status must be enabled for VLAN 1 and 2
IGMP Querier status must be enabled for VLAN 1 and 2
Bridge Multicast Filtering must be enabled for all VLAN
Unregistered Multi-cast must be set for Filtering on all ports
To allow proper synchronization (myMix uses PTP IEEE1588-2008, layer 2 transport), the clock needs to be exempt from filtering.  
If you plan to use multiple switches you need to configure a GB port on the switch as uplink to forward receive all data.

Note: myMix devices generate their IP addresses automatically (IPv4 Link-Local).
If you are connecting multiple switches you must assign a unique IP address to each switch.

If you integrate myMix in an existing network make sure VLAN2 is exclusively used for myMix devices.

If you are unsure about all of the above: we offer pre-configured  Cisco 300 series switches.See our product page switches for more details.

myMix Wave

myMix WAVE is a free software tool that allows you to create "Sessions" for multi-track playback in myMix from prerecorded material. The files need to be time-stamped wav files in 24-bit, 48kHz with the same starting time (length can differ).
