Effective from 18 Dec 2023
We’ve finally released Firmware v3.12.1 for the MC3, MC6MKII, MC6 PRO and MC8!
For the MC6 PRO, there are many bug fixes mostly related to edge use cases. Most of you will probably not even notice them but for those that do, you’ve probably already been using the beta firmware or hopefully this bring some respite.
For all the models, we’re excited to make your MIDI Controller even more capable with the new features and enhancements added.
The live editor has also been updated to support the v3.12 firmware. Using an outdated firmware with the latest editor will not work.
If you are still on the v3.11 firmware (or earlier), fret not. You can always find the links to the editors that support each firmware at the bottom of the editor.
Here are the direct links for your convenience
If your User Library / Editor settings are not yet backed up, you can still use the demo mode in the Live Editor to download your data and load them into the respective editors.

Notable New Features
The full list can be found in the release notes but we’ll touch on some exciting new features here.
Bank Jump for TRS Aux Switch
You can now assign a Bank Jump function to an aux switch connected to the Omniport
Resistor Ladder Aux Switch
The omniport now supports a resistor-ladder style aux switch, which allows you to connect up to 8 or 16 switches (depending on model) to Omniport 1.
Send MIDI messages only to specific MIDI ports based on MIDI channel
You can now filter out MIDI messages sent to specific MIDI OUT ports based on the MIDI channel.
More info here: Sending MIDI messages only on selected ports
This applies to MIDI clock as well: How to limit MIDI Clock to specific ports
Line-6 (rheostat / TS) style expression pedals now compatible!
Since we launched, we’ve only support the common TRS type expression pedal. We’re excited to add support for TS-styled expression pedals. The calibration menu has also been updated so be sure to check this out: Setting up your Expression Pedal
Since releasing our first MIDI controller in 2016, software development has continued where hardware limitations permits, and we are committed to bringing you exciting new features in the years ahead. We’re currently looking into cloud integration for the editor to better enhance the editing workflow.
Thanks again for all your support and we’re excited to be part of your musical journey in the years ahead.
