Before I start elaborating, I'll clearly state my questions: Why have I only got certain presets?
Has my H3000 been previously upgraded?
If it hasn't been upgraded, can I use the standard D/SE upgrade eproms that I see on eBay? (search "eventide upgrade" - i don't want to break forum rules by posting a link)
As the users that have posted here seem to be well versed in the subject, I thought I'd hijack this old thread looking for some advice rather than clog up gearslutz with a new one. If no replies within a day I'll start a new thread.
I've just purchased a H3000 S & was intending to upgrade the eproms to v 2.17 D/SE. To my surprise, when I turned on the machine, I was greeted by a screen saying that the OS was v 2.17, which I was under the impression was the last revision & could indicate that it was already upgraded fully. My excitement quickly died however as soon as I took a look through the presets & realised I'm missing a huge amount that should be there if it truly was v2.17 D/SE.
The only presets I have are:
Going on advice i found in Gearslutz threads, I successfully reset the machine but this made no difference to the presets available.
Next, I took off the top to check out what eprom chips are already in there, but being my first experience I'm not 100% which chips I'm looking at (S, SE, D/SE etc). So, I've taken a photo below.
I can see when comparing this shot that I have two chips less than than user 'jrakari'...which I'm pretty sure has something to do with it. Are these meant to be missing? If I buy the upgrade chips am I still going to be missing a chip that's not included with them?
So, referring back to my original questions - I'm hoping from the information I've given that someone can help me with those.
BIG BIG THANKS!
