<H1>MIDIbox NG</H1>
<H1>User Manual --- Installation</H1>

<P CLASS=INFO>The MIDIbox NG firmware is released as a precompiled binary, which can be easily updated via USB MIDI by using MIOS Studio. Details about the bootloader are explained <A HREF="mios32_bootstrap_newbies.html">here</A>.</P>

<H2> <IMG SRC="images/bullet.gif" ALT=""> Step by Step </H2>

  <LI>it's assumed that you already tested the USB MIDI communication by pressing the Query button in <A HREF="mios_studio.html">MIOS Studio</A> as explained in the <A HREF="mios32_bootstrap_newbies.html">Bootloader page</A> - you should get some informations about the chip and the running application.<BR>
      If this procedure sounds unfamiliar to you, please follow the hardware test procedure first as explained in the <A HREF="mbhp_core_lpc17.html">MBHP_CORE_LPC17</A> page.</LI>
  <LI>download the latest midibox_ng_v1_* release package from the <A HREF="mios32_download.html">MIOS32 Download Page</A>.
  <LI>unzip the .zip archive.
  <LI>load the MBHP_CORE_LPC17/project.hex file with the "Hex Upload" window of MIOS Studio and press the Start button.
  <LI>the new firmware will be transfered to your MIDIbox.
  <LI>once the "Upload completed" message is displayed by MIOS Studio (after ca. 20..30 seconds), your MIDIbox will reboot, and the new firmware will be started.

<P CLASS=CL>Now you could start to explore the capabilities of MIDIbox NG by going through the <A HREF="midibox_ng_manual_fs.html">First Steps</A> chapter, and/or you could try out some premade configurations which are part of the release package, and located in the cfg directory.</P>
