Upgrading Firmware

Firmware upgrades are available for PedalProEx, Pedalino and Abox II. 

Preparing PedalProEx for upgrades: Connect the PedalProEx to your Mac/PC using the USB cable supplied. DO NOT switch on your PedalProEx. With the PedalProEx switched off, press and hold the down arrow key and switch on the PedalProEx while still holding the down arrow.

Preparing Pedalino for upgrades: Connect the Pedalino to your Mac/PC using the USB cable supplied. With the Pedalino switched OFF, press and hold the Menu button and switch on the Pedalino while still holding the Menu button.

Preparing Abox II for upgrades: Connect the Abox II to your Mac/PC using the USB cable. DO NOT switch on your Abox II. With the Abox II switched off, press and hold the Tempo button and switch on the Abox II.

  • Your Vintage Revolution device is now in ‘Firmware Upgrade’ mode. Your computer should immediately recognise the new device by showing the corresponding icon on the PedalManager window. On your computer screen, the PedalManager will automatically open a window for firmware upgrades (FW upgrade mode).

  • Click on the “Load Firmware File” button and load the new FW that you have downloaded from the Vintage Revolution website (Support section).

  • For Pedalino insert the 30-digit 'firmware unlock key' (serial code) and click OK. If your code is correct, proceed by clicking 'yes' and perform the upgrade. For Abox II and PedalProEx the unlock key is required. For PedalProEx, the procedure may continue with repeating the FW upgrade for the other processors included in the unit. If this is the case, this can be done without rebooting the unit.

  • IMPORTANT: Do NOT switch off your device while it is in the process of upgrading.

  • Once the firmware upgrade is completed reboot your device.

Managing your preset list

A 'preset list' is a list of sound presets and favourite presets. PedalProEx can store 400 sound presets (numbered 000-399) and 18 favourites. The PedalManager can edit and store in your computer preset lists exceeding 400 sound presets. Presets with numbers from 400 onwards can be saved in a file on your computer.

  • Opening and Saving a preset list: To open a preset list, click on the "Preset list" menu and open the preset list file in the left grid or right grid. Use the open preset file window to select the preset list.

  • Saving a preset list: Click on the "Preset list" menu and save the preset list of the corresponding grid (left or right) as a file.

  • Creating an empty preset list: Click “New” on the "Preset list" menu and choose the grid, left or right, in which you intend to generate the empty list.
