Default Vector firmware 1.0.7



• Download and un-zip the Vector firmware file (
• 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 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. The OS X Finder will often rename it (e.g. VECTOR-2.BIN), in that case be sure to rename it back to VECTOR.BIN. Copy VECTOR.BIN 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-right corner.
