  • Vector Sequencer : LATEST RELEASE FIRMWARE (UPDATED 26 NOV 2022)

    The most recent firmware for the Vector Sequencer is 2.2.15. See the README file
    included in the download for details on fixes and updates.

    LAUNCHPAD USERS: You will have to update the firmware on your Launchpad via the Novation Components
    website. Novation fixed a bug that was introduced last spring. Starting in Vector FW 2.2.8 I added a workaround.
    Now that the bug is fixed, I've had to remove that workaround in Vector FW 2.2.15.

    Vector Sequencer Firmware Update Instructions

    • Download and un-zip the Vector firmware file (VECTOR.BIN.zip).

    • Press and hold the Shift button while powering up the Vector to enter USB Disk mode.

    • Use a USB ‘A to B’ cable to connect the Vector to your computer. After a few seconds, the SD Card for the Vector will show up as a new disk.

    • Unzip VECTOR.BIN.zip. On a Mac, the Finder may do that for you. Do not double-click on VECTOR.BIN, which the Finder will try to de-compress into something not useful.

    • Make sure the filename is exactly VECTOR.BIN, and copy it to the root directory of Vector’s SD Card – Delete

    or move any previous VECTOR.BIN firmware files.

    • Now is also a good time to backup your Vector's PROJECT directory.

    • Unmount/Eject the Vector’s SD Card from your computer, and power off your eurorack system.

    • Hold down the Rec button on the Vector while powering up your system.

    • Press Next to load the new Firmware, which takes about 20 seconds.

    • Verify the Firmware is the correct version in Globals -- first page, 2nd OLED, top-left corner.
