RECOMMENDATION

Update all Microflex® Advance™ microphones and Audio Network Interfaces in a configuration to the same firmware version.

NEW FEATURE

  • A device-wide, low-frequency filter can now be enabled with a new Low-shelf Filter button on the browser-based web application.

KNOWN ISSUE

  • When exporting Presets using Safari on a Mac OS, the file type is saved incorrectly and must be renamed to .json to be imported

NOTES

  • This optional update makes installation and configuration more efficient when running independent channels into processing hardware, such as an echo canceller or automixer, to reduce low frequency buildup when channels are summed. This update is unnecessary for MXA910 microphones that are already installed and well-configured, and may require the user to disable the low frequency filter if updated.
  • MXA910 version 1.3.4 is compatible with microphones running version 1.2.6 and below.
  • For operation of MXA910 version 1.3.4 with other Shure networked systems, reference the following list of minimum versions supported:
