The Waldorf Users Forum is either down or gone, but here is a Yahoo users group that is still active:

I also found these instructions there:

Q: How to Update the Q/mQ O.S.

A: This is an important process since it can add all the new features of an OS update or, if done wrong, damage the Q. However, as long as you follow the steps detailed here or in the Q manual (downloadable from the Waldorf website) everything will work fine.

((And, if for some reason the power goes out during an OS upgrade, well you have only yourself to blame for not getting a conditioned backup power supply for your studio! Wink))

Q O.S.s come as standard MIDI files containing system exclusive data (SysEx) info which, when sent to the Q via MIDI just like a normal sequence, will be understood by the Q and burned into memory. The process is very similar to loading Q sounds.

There are two files which you will most likely need to update your Q with: the "boot" O.S. and the O.S. itself.

The Boot O.S. contains the data your Q uses to access the regular O.S. and is useful, for example, when an OS update attempt has failed. The Q (keyboard) and Q-rack both use the same O.S. and boot O.S., while the MicroQ has its own 2 O.S. files. Also, the Changelog.txt for the new O.S. will be available on Waldorf's site and will detail the features of the new O.S.

Insure that you get your Q O.S. update files from the Waldorf website. Its generaly a good idea to get the file(s) not long before you update to avoid the slim chance that various unrelated computer disk operations accidently corrupted the O.S. files, but this is very unlikely so its more of a precaution.

The Order is:
1) the O.S.
2) Boot O.S.
You do *not* need to restart the Q during the proceedure since after a succesful SysEx dump the Q the restart itslef to ennable the new O.S.
