TF5/3/1 TF-RACK Firmware V3.00 (Previous version)
[Notice: Checking the version number]
- You may check the TF main firmware version number from the version field in the About screen of the SYSTEM SETUP menu.
- 'tf_firm300.zip' is the version that is already installed in the TF-RACK. Therefore TF-RACK need not be updated to V3.00.
TF Series Firmware/Editor Compatibility
Please make sure to use appropriate version of Editor software which is compatible with your console firmware in reference to the following compatibility chart. Using an unsupported Firmware/Editor and other related software combination may result in unexpected behavior.
Main Revisions and Enhancements
V2.50 to V3.00
- Added an Access Permission function via user accounts.
- Added a FADER section to the OVERVIEW screen.
Set the [HOME] key function in the PREFERENCE screen to display the FADER section. For detailed information, refer to the TF V3 Reference Manual.
- Added an “EQ Band Select” function that can be assigned to the [USER DEFINED KEYS].
- Added the following functions that can be assigned to the [USER DEFINED KNOBS].
Selected CH: EQ Band SelectSelected CH: Digital GainSelected CH: Send Level (FX, AUX, and SUB)CH SelectCH Level
- Added a “Power Saving Mode” function in the BRIGHTNESS screen.
This function automatically sets the screen brightness to low if no operation is performed during a specified amount of time.
- Ensured that the STEREO/SUB Level Link function maintains offsets.
Offset values will also be saved in a Scene. However, Scenes saved via the TF series V2.50 or earlier do not include Offset values. This means that Offset values will not change even if such Scenes are recalled.
- Added bus sends from the AUX9/10 – AUX19/20 busses to the SUB bus.
- Added a SEND FROM screen to the FX1/FX2 channels.
- Added the Matrix1-4 meters in the TOOLBAR.
- New Presets have been added to the default Presets of the Channel Library. To add them to the Library list, execute “Initialize All Memory” after updating to V3.0.
- Added the threshold link function of the “Multi Band Comp” effect to keep offsets between the Low, Mid, and High parameters. In addition, the Make Up parameter has been removed to avoid a sudden change of volume.
- Changed the Input Gain offset link action between stereo link channels to keep the offset value even if the Input Gain is set to maximum or minimum.
- The SYSTEM SETUP screen and the USER SETUP screen have been consolidated to the SETUP screen.
- Added an Initialize NY64-D screen in the Maintenance screen.
Initializing the NY64-D feature was included in the “Initialize All Memory” function in V2.50 or earlier. This feature has become an independent function from the V3.0 firmware.
- Changed the specification to not load the settings of channel selection, fader bank selection, and SENDS ON FADER to the TF setting file (.TFF).
- Changed the “Monitor Source Select” operation of the USER DEFINED KEY from simple selection to toggling between selection and off.
- Improved the volume curve in a muting of internal HA gain control at each 6dB point.
- Improved the action of motor faders.
- Solved a problem in which the Stereo Link function might cause a data loop for the HA Gain control of the Tio1608-D when some TF series units having the HA Control set to on exist in the same Dante network.
- Solved a problem in which a TF setting file could not be loaded by a certain operation procedure.
- Solved a problem in which the Send Pan parameter set to center when executing the “All Nominal” context menu in the SEND FROM screen.
- Solved some minor bugs.
- A message “Two or More HA Controllers may Cause Conflict” may appear when loading a TF setting file (.TFF) while the “HA Control” option in the Slot Setup menu is off. In this case, the progress bar showing the loading status may disappear. However, the initialization otherwise works properly.
- There is the problem in which, when operating the analog gain (A.Gain) of a channel not set to the Stereo Link function, and if Stereo Link has been set to the channel sharing the same INPUT jack as the source option (TF5:CH1-8 and CH33-40, TF3:CH1-16 and CH25-40, TF1:CH1-16 and CH17-32), the unlinked channel would also link to the corresponding next channel regardless of the input source selection. When using TF INPUT jacks, we suggest to refrain from setting Stereo Link to the channel sharing the same INPUT jack regardless of the input source selection. (This problem does not occur in Firmware V2.50.)
