shuttle control firmware update procedure

SHUTTLE CONTROL FIRMWARE UPDATE PROCEDURE
(from v.1 to v.2 to v.3 and vice versa)
Why to update?
Endorphin.es continuously work on the new features and improvements as well as existing bug fixes.
It is recommended to use the last firmware update with appropriate web-editor to obtain the latest
features and flawless module’s behavior.
It is also possible to downgrade to v.1 firmware back in case you find it better.
For update procedure scroll down. Warning – during update procedure you will lose your presets and
probably v3 calibration data.
FIRMWARE HISTORY AND DOWNLOAD (as zip archive or uncompressed DFU file):
Shuttle Control Cargo 3 – 280617 (for OSX, Windows and DFU)
http://firmware.endorphin.es/Shuttle_v3_OSX_update.zip
v.3.5:
- Auto-legato (SH-101 alike). When checked for preset, then in all mono modes in current preset will be slide (with portamento amount
defined by CC#5) only when you play legato (upcoming NOTE ON message comes earlier than previous NOTE OFF is received)
- Fixed 1v/oct pitch CV merged with pitch bender of +/-2 octaves range
v.3.4:
- LFO controlled by MIDI clock. Start/stop/continue doesn't influence the frequency, however after start/continue all LFOs are resynchronized. Same as with random CV generators (controlled by MIDI clock), CC#12 is reserved for choosing the divider of incoming
MIDI clock same as with random CV generators
- All notes off or 0xFF (system reset) commands (usually sent from DAW) don't reset pitch, CC and rest generators values at CV outputs
- 1v/oct pitch CV merged with pitch bender of +/-2 octaves range added
v.3.3:
- Arpeggiator. Tempo is continuously generated under incoming MIDI clock (Start/stop/continue do not work here). CC#11 is reserved for
choosing the divider for incoming MIDI clock (By default 1/16 (PPQN/6). If CC#11 is from 0 to 31, then 1/32 (PPQN/3). If from 32 till 63,
then 1/16 (PPQN/6). If from 64 till 95, then 1/8 (PPQN/12), and if from 96 till 127, then 1/4 (PPQN/24). CC#50 is reserved for
arpeggiator’s shuffle (no shuffle at startup or if no CC#50 value was sent). CC#64 is reserved for sustain pedal (for arpeggiator’s
triggers/gates as well as for pitch/notes sequencing)
- Bank/presets reverse retrieve from Shuttle Control right into Web editor
- Various random CV generators that are generated under incoming MIDI clock. Start/continue enables them to generate and Stop makes
them pause. Same as with CC#11 in arpeggiator, CC#12 here reserved for choosing the divider for incoming MIDI clock (1/32 (PPQN/3),
1/16 (PPQN/6), 1/8 (PPQN/12), and 1/4 (PPQN/24)). CC#13 is reserved for random CV distribution (for quantized and stored voltage
generators)
- Save/load from/to cloud buttons of Web-editor are hidden on mobile browsers. Minor cosmetic edits to Web-editor
- 'Any voice' added for polyphonic modes for CV/Gate
- Additional pitch CV mode added that combines 1v/oct pitch CV merged with pitch bender (range: +/-1oct)
v.3.2:
- fixed all clock outputs shuffle – zero shuffle by default or when CC48/49=0. Also minor fix with Tap clock.
v.3.1:
- PPQN/96 divider works properly divided by 96 (was 128 before)
v.3.0 (Cargo 3 release):
- all notes lists shifted: C notes correspond to integer voltage values in 1v/oct mode. C3 corresponds to middle note (zero volts). MIDI
note numbers acceptance: 0-120
- all notes correspond exact octaves as in Steinberg Cubase or Ableton Live piano-rolls
- Liine Lemur/Max MSP integration in terms of presets editing
- reverse preset sysex dump
- ‘program change’ message changes the preset number
- pitch CV calibrator to eliminate DAC scaling error for every of 16 CV outputs
- consequent notes generator for oscillators 1v/oct tuning
- probability and velocity based trigger/gates
- envelope and pulser function generators for simple AD/ASR actions
- fixed clock output
- shuffle for all clock generators
- new Fibonacci sequence tap-based clock generator
- more noise generators (brown, pink, 808 inspired noise sources useful for drum synthesis)
- more PPQN dividers added incl. separate trigger events for certain transport commands (start, stop, continue)
-
source of uncertainty inspired random voltage generators incl. stored, quantized and fluctuating randomness

Shuttle Control v.2.0.16– 281215R
http://firmware.endorphin.es/Shuttle_Control_v2.0.16_281215.zip
http://firmware.endorphin.es/Shuttle_Control_v2.0.16_281215.dfu
http://firmware.endorphin.es/Shuttle_Control_v2_OSX_v2.0.16.zip - for OSX
- MIDI Sync code re-written. Now all output MIDI Sync pulses from Shuttle Control are sample-to-sample accurately synchronized to
incoming MIDI Sync. Fine-tuned to work perfect with Elektron® gear along with any native based DAWs. In case you obtain shifted clock
output in relation to the notes played from the sequencer (e.g. 1/16 notes triggered with PPQN/6 MIDI Sync), simply press (send) STOP
command on your sequencer/DAW in the beginning of your session and afterwards the clock will be synchronized.
- Shuttle Control now works with Elektron® TM-1 USB-MIDI interface out of the box (turbo mode is not supported).
- Polyphonic modes (for 2-8 voices) revised. Now the voices are allocated in cycling order thru the CV outputs in the manner as was
introduced in first Oberheim and Sequential Circuits polyphonic synthesizers to avoid voices overlap and giving a natural polyphonic
response. When new upcoming note comes in case all voices are busy (on), the place for this voice is taken (stolen) instead of the first
pressed note and so on.

Shuttle Control v.2.0.2– 241115R
http://firmware.endorphin.es/Shuttle_Control_v2.0.2_241115.zip
http://firmware.endorphin.es/Shuttle_Control_v2.0.2_241115.dfu
- New editor with new features. V.2 editor isn’t compatible with v.1 module’s hardware and vice versa.
- Bi-directional host>device, device>host and host>host (host loopback) MIDI data transfer (incl. MIDI sync). You may play notes from
USB-MIDI keyboard and besides outputting CV you may send all MIDI signal (or sync) into your DAW (PC/MAC/iOS) or vice versa. You may
also return all sent MIDI signals from your MIDI keyboard to same MIDI output that acts as a midi thru to chain other MIDI devices.
Shuttle module may become a bit warmer than earlier when using that feature.
- Tap LFO generators added. All the waveforms are same as LFO CC generators but controlled/synced from a three and more taps of a
certain MIDI note.
- Fixed MIDI sync stability. All dividers are now properly synced to the main MIDI sync source to ensure stable precise synchronization
from a sequencer or other MIDI devices (especially after multiple times of playback/restart commands etc).
- Start and Stop behavior change. MIDI clock outputs pulse triggers only after start (play/continue) is pressed and shuts off when stop is
pressed nevertheless sends MIDI DAW MIDI sync continuously when stopped or no.
- More divisions for synchronization and Tap clock added.
- Velocity note added to obtain velocity from a certain MIDI note. That type of event is useful for making drum mappings with
velocity/accent.
- All gate/trigger events now may be either uni-polar (0…+5v as before) but also bi-polar (-5v at ‘off’ and +5V at ‘on’ state). That may be
useful when you need to have 10Vpp pulse signals, which you may offset afterwards.
- CC messages now can be either ‘smoothed’ (interpolated to 12-bit values without audible steps) or ‘stepped’ (direct 7-bit CC values).
- CC#0 is replaced with ‘any CC’ in all lists where output CV is based on certain CC number/value.
- ‘Any note‘ added in any list where event is based on a certain MIDI note.
- Portamento control in monophonic mode fixed. It is smooth now over the whole range of CC#5. Maximal sweep to note time extended.
- Original PID/VID of Shuttle Control licensed by USB-IF.
- Factory presets are loaded at web-editor startup by default. Clear factory presets button added.
- Fixed issue with SysEx dumps upload via USB CoreMIDI at Mac OS X.
- Shuttle Control now identifies as ‘Shuttle Control v2’ in MIDI devices and hardware list:
Shuttle Control v.1.0.1 – 150615R
http://firmware.endorphin.es/Shuttle_Control_v1.0.1_150615.zip
http://firmware.endorphin.es/Shuttle_Control_v1.0.1_150615.dfu
- Fixed trigger note response output messages for proper drum mapping.
v.1.0.
- Initial launch.
UPDATE PROCEDURE UNDER WINDOWS. FOR MAC OS X UPDATE SCROLL DOWN.
WARNING: after the update procedure all your V.1 presets will be lost – you have to re-generate them
with the new Cargo2 editor.
UPDATE PROCEDURE ALGORITHM
1) Download and install free DfuSe USB device firmware upgrade STMicroelectronics extension
(STSW-STM32080) from official STMicroelectronics web-site:
http://www.st.com/web/en/catalog/tools/FM147/CL1794/SC961/SS1533/PF257916
Current version is 3.0.3 (3.0.5). No SMS or registration required to download the installer. It is
recommended to have Windows XP or later version of operating system.
2) Download the latest Shuttle Control firmware update file (see download links above).
3) Turn off your Shuttle Control (or the whole modular rack in case Shuttle is powered from its
busboard). Connect your Shuttle Control module to your PC via to device connector with
supplied USB cable.
4) Power-on the Shuttle Control (or modular system where Shuttle powers from busboard) while
holding UP button on the Shuttle Module. Hold the button up to 5 seconds after powered on and
then release. Shuttle will be loaded into DFU (Direct Firmware Update) mode – no animation is
started, the display will not light up and some of LEDs will randomly light up, however Windows
will detect some new plug-n-play generic USB device which will be appear in your Windows
Devices list (STM32 Device in DFU Mode / STM32 BOOTLOADER). Wait for a while until Windows
installs driver for it – the usual procedure just like you insert ordinary USB-flash drive first time
in your computer.
Don’t afraid to see Shuttle Control being in DFU mode – any time you can exit it by turning
Shuttle off and on again.
5) After Windows successfully installs drivers for new devices (they should be installed
automatically after you installed DfuSe software) you may go to: Start > All Programs >
STMictoelectornics > DfuSe > DfuSe Demonstration. You will see STM Device in DFU Mode in the
available DFU Devices list:
If your Shuttle still does not appear in the available DFU devices list, go to Control panel > Device
Manager and find there STM32BOOTLOADER device marked with ‘!’ sign. That means drivers were not
automatically installed for it. Simply double click on that device and press Update driver > Choose
manually and choose the folder where you have installed DfuSe before (usually it is located at
C:\Program Files (x86)\STMicroelectronics\Software\DfuSe v3.0.5\). Afterwards the driver will be
installed and you may repeat that step 5) again.
6) After your Shuttle appeared in available DFU devices list, press Choose… from Upgrade or Verify
Action part of the window and after the new window will open – choose new firmware file (DFU)
you’ve downloaded (see the links with firmware above).
7) Afterwards press Upgrade and wait until the operation will be finished (usually up to 10
seconds). Before updating you have to confirm that firmware file is correct for that device.
Don’t disconnect or turn off the Shuttle during that procedure!
8) After upgrade operation is finished you will see successful green upgrade message in the
bottom of DfuSe window:
You may now quit DfuSe Demo and turn your Shuttle Control off and on again. If it’s powered
with own PSU – just turn the switch off and on. If it’s powered from your powered busboard –
simply turn the power of your modular rack off and on again.
9) Your Shuttle is ready for take-off. At start-up you will see some updated loading animation (first
two lines appeared I I means you are running v.2 firmware). You may use v.2 editor with all
new listed above features. You will see your Shuttle now as Shuttle Control v2 in your MIDI
devices list:
10) After the update Shuttle needs your presets to be loaded. You should re-generate them (or
make own custom) with new editor at http://cargo2.endorphin.es (green button SAVE ALL
PRESETS to get all factory ones to start with).
11) Factory presets for V.2 illustrated for simple starting patches understanding and easy access
as a sketch: http://cargo2.endorphin.es/shuttle_control_presets_v2_cheat_sheet.pdf
12) For downgrade (installing v1 from v2) – simply follow the same procedure just uploading v1
firmware file. You may upgrade or downgrade as many time you wish.
UPDATE PROCEDURE UNDER MAC OS X. FOR WINDOWS UPDATE SCROLL UP.
WARNING: after the update procedure, all your V.1/2 presets will be lost – you have to re-generate them
with the new Cargo2 editor.
1) Download and unpack the recent firmware archives from the history above into one folder.
2) Turn off your Shuttle Control (or complete modular rack in case Shuttle is powered from your
rack’s bus-board). Connect your Shuttle Control module to your MAC via to device connector
with supplied USB cable.
3) Power-on the Shuttle Control (or modular system where Shuttle powers from bus-board) while
holding UP button on the Shuttle Module. Hold the button up to 5-7 seconds after powered on
and then release. Shuttle should be loaded into DFU (Direct Firmware Update) mode – no
animation is started, the display will not light up and some of LEDs will randomly light up,
however MAC OS X should detect new plug-n-play generic USB device which will be appear in
your Hardware>USB list (STM32 BOOTLOADER): Applications > Utilities > System Information:
Sometimes when you release the UP button the Shuttle
starts to play animation – it means it’s not put in DFU
mode. There is a simple however a bit weird solution we
found out: while turning the Shuttle on with UP button
pressed try to put the finger on the backside area of the
Shuttle as shown on the photo:
4) After you ensure the STM32 BOOTLOADER is present in your hardware list, navigate to
‘Shuttle_v1_v2_MAC_OSX_update’ folder you unpacked before.
5) To load v2 firmware on your Shuttle – simply double click on the following command file:
Shuttle_v1_v2_MAC_OSX_update\update_shuttle_v2.cmd.command
After clicking the command you may receive the message that you are not allowed to launch
third party apps on your MAC. Simply follow that instruction to enable that:
https://rampagedev.wordpress.com/os-x-tweaks/app-cant-be-opened-because-it-was-not-downloaded-from-the-mac-app-store-fix-2/
and next time and launch the command simply confirm when launching it.
6) The Terminal window will be opened with the update process:
7) After roundabout 10 seconds the process will be finished. Don’t interrupt it.
8) Once the process has completed, Shuttle will reboot with the new V2 firmware.
NOTE: you may have ‘Error during download get_status’ message at the end of the upgrade
procedure. This is normal. Close the Terminal window afterwards.
9) Your Shuttle is ready for take-off. At start-up you will see some updated loading animation (first
two lines appeared I I means you are running V2 firmware). You may use Cargo2 editor with all
new listed above features. You will see your Shuttle now as ‘Shuttle Control v2’ in your MIDI
Studio (Applications > Utilities > Audio MIDI Setup > CMD+2 (Show MIDI studio):
and in Hardware > USB list:
10) After the update, Shuttle needs your presets to be loaded. You should re-generate them (or
make own custom) with new editor at http://cargo2.endorphin.es (green button SAVE ALL
PRESETS to get all factory ones to start with).
11) Factory presets for V2 illustrated for simple starting patches understanding and easy access
as a sketch: http://cargo2.endorphin.es/shuttle_control_presets_v2_cheat_sheet.pdf
12) For downgrade (installing v1 from v2) – simply follow the same procedure from the beginning
just clicking on
Shuttle_v1_v2_MAC_OSX_update\update_shuttle_v1.cmd.command
command file on the step 5). You may upgrade or downgrade as many time you wish.
