MTX Editor V1.3.0 for Win8.1/8/7 and firmware V1.32 (Previous version)
- To update the firmware, please refer to the MTX/XMV/EXi8/EXo8 Firmware Update Guide.
- The preset data of the device will be lost if the firmware is updated from V1.0x, V1.1x, V1.2x to V1.3x or later. Ensure that the MTX is synchronized and saved to MTX Editor as a project file before performing the firmware update in order to ensure that your project data is not lost, and then perform the firmware upgrade using the latest version of MTX Editor. Ensure that the device is initialized after the update, and then open the previously saved project file using the latest MTX Editor and re-synchronize to the updated devices.
- When you update the firmware, the version number of "Firmware in this file" of the "Update Firmware" dialog box may show V1.31. In this case, carry out the following operations:
1) Open one of the following folders by Explorer.
32bit OS: C:\Program Files\Yamaha\MTX Editor\V1.3
64bit OS: C:\Program Files(x86)\Yamaha\MTX Editor\V1.32) Right-click on the "Firmware" folder and select "Properties."3) In the “General” tab, uncheck the "Read-only (Only applies to files in folder)."4) Click the "OK" button to close the Properties display.5) Install MTX Editor again.
- When initializing Dante devices (MTX5-D and Dante model of XMV), ensure that all other Dante devices on the network are disconnected or powered off. Otherwise initialization could take longer than necessary.
- To prevent damage to the SD memory card as well as loss of data, do not remove or insert the SD memory card while the device is on.
- Although MTX Editor shows 'Completed' after updating firmware, do not turn off the power of the device until the indicators on the front panel have stopped blinking.
- In the unlikely case of hardware failure, initialize the replacement device(s), confirm proper ID and DIP switch settings, and then resynchronize from MTX Editor to the device(s).
- When entering text into a text field inside a dialog box of MTX Editor using Input Method Editors, such as Microsoft IME, ensure that the mouse pointer is not clicked over another area of the open dialog window before converting and applying the text. This will cause the keyboard input to stop. Should this happen, close and re-open the dialog box.
- Do not enter the following characters in text fields in the MTX Editor.
& < > “ ‘ / $’ \n (line feed) \t (tab)
These characters may disappear or change into unexpected characters.
- When the project file created by MTX Editor V1.0x is opened with MTX Editor V1.1x or later, [Play] selected by "SD Song Select & Play" in the “Preset” dialog, is changed to [No Assign]. In this case, manually change [No Assign] for all necessary Presets to [Play].
- Do not use the EEE function (*) of network switches in a Dante network. Although power management should be negotiated automatically in switches that support EEE, some switches do not perform the negotiation properly. This may cause EEE to be enabled in Dante networks when it is not appropriate, resulting in poor synchronization performance and occasional dropouts. Therefore we strongly recommend that:
1. If you use managed switches, ensure that they allow EEE to be disabled. Make sure that EEE is disabled on all ports used for real-time Dante traffic.2. If you use unmanaged switches, make sure to not use network switches that support the EEE function, since EEE operation cannot be disabled in these switches.*EEE (Energy Efficient Ethernet) is a technology that reduces switch power consumption during periods of low network traffic. It is also known as Green Ethernet and IEEE802.3az.
- When the MTX Editor changes Dante patch settings for large numbers of devices, it may take several minutes after synchronization is shown to be complete (in MTX Editor) for the patch to be established and audio to be heard

Please make sure to use the appropriate versions of firmware and software, referring to the following compatibility charts. Using an unsupported combination may result in malfunction.
Main Revisions and Enhancements
- Fixed a problem in which an error was returned and the parameter value was not changed, after a “setn” remote control command was received with a value outside of the specified range. Please refer to the Remote Control Protocol Specification document to check the correct behavior when a value outside the valid range is received.
- Fixed a problem in which when turning off the power, a popping noise may occur.
- When the frequency of the clock source supplied from the outside changes from 44.1 kHz to 48 kHz, or vice versa, the alert message 28 appears—meaning that the Dante sampling frequency was changed to match the word clock master—however, the word clock setting in Dante does not actually reflect this. When you change the frequency of a clock source, also make sure to change the word clock setting in Dante using MTX Editor or Dante Controller.
When you change a setting by MTX Editor, choose System Word Clock Fs appropriately in the "Word Clock" dialog box of MTX Editor, and synchronize by "To Device."
When you change a setting by Dante Controller, please refer to the help function or user's guide of Dante Controller.
Keep in mind that the entire system may be affected by the settings in a single part. Major problems can occur when a device not intended to be a part of the system is set to a word clock setting that the other Dante devices do not support.
The problem in which the alert 28 message appears will be corrected in a future update.
- In the Dante model, Dante Device Labels can be changed arbitrarily and permanently. These changes can be made from the Dante Controller software.
However, since the five initial characters are used for device identification (decided by UNIT ID), do not change them they should not be changed. The 6th character and subsequent ones can be changed arbitrarily.
Moreover, the following rules in Dante Device Label are common to all Dante devices (and not just this one):
- Conventional characters (alphabetical uppercase or lowercase), numerals, or hyphens (-) can be used.
- A maximum of 31 characters can be entered.
