Hello,
I'm using djDecks with the Denon HC4500 controller. Recently Denon published firmware update:v1006

Is it safe and wise to download this new firmware into my controller and will it still work OK with djDecks??

Info:
1. SUBJECT: Microcomputer firmware update (Ver. 1005 -> Ver. 1006)
2. SYMPTOM:
1. Improved MIDI for MAC OS X10.5.7
2. Improved USB Audio clock synchronization between HC and computer (QualitySTATION #4-78-20090604-1)
3. Added New Preset, Item #10> “Touch Init. ” (Jog Wheel Initialize ) If your Jog Wheels do not respond properly you can now reset them with this new preset
4. Added ‘ Identify Request ’ by MIDI Command (for software developers)

Thanks, Cees

I'm interested to know if this is worth installing as well. I don't have any issues with my HC4500's performance now, so should I install this update?

I've installed it since it came out, and it's definitely an improvement... you'll need this to make sure switching between dn-4500(cd) and hc4500(pc) goes smooth for instance, but several other improvements as well really..

As i look into the improvements list Denon provided i cannot find anything really special...
I only use the HC4500 with djDecks only and not with the CD driver.

That's why I'm interested in peoples experience with this firmware together with djDecks, or maybe Adion can help us out?

Also i don't have a copy of the previous firmware, so when something doesn't work well i cannot downgrade back!

all previous fixes are in this firmware as well... btw, it includes an update that allows programmers to check if the denon stopped responding, and to let it reinitialize... I think Adion uses this in more recent builds, so it's definitly worth the upgrade.. no downfalls to this update really...
