PRO Hub:


V6 Firmware: (right click and "save link as" to download)
Hear Back Pro Hub V6.5.zip

(Released December 9, 2020) – New firmware allowing input channel naming and use of the new Hear Back PRO Mixer Digital Overlay electronic scribble strip.

Note: we had released a version 6.8 but due to a bug where the clock would sometimes switch to external when using the iOS app. We rolled back to this version. The only issue with this version is the audio is 6dB hotter on each channel. 

Hear Back Pro Hub V6.6.zip (ONLY WORKS WITH 32 CHANNEL DANTE & MADI CARDS)(Released December 9, 2020) – This is the same as V6.5 but setup to work with 32 channel Dante and MADI cards.

Note: we had released a version 6.8 but due to a bug where the clock would sometimes switch to external when using the iOS app. We rolled back to this version. The only issue with this version is the audio is 6dB hotter on each channel. 

Hear Back PRO Hub Bootloader Update V2.10.zip

(Released February 2, 2022) – Fixes a bug where when changing an input channel name using the iOS app on the hub for channel 31 or 32 causes the hub to become unresponsive from the iOS app.
Hear-Back-PRO-Hub-Bootloader-Updater.zip (ONLY FOR MAC OS)(Release February 8, 2022) – macOS workaround for updating the Hub bootloader to v2.10, which fixes the issues related to naming Channel 31 or 32 from the iOS app.
(BETA) Hear Back Pro Hub V6.13.zip

*Requires Hear Back PRO Hub Bootloader Update V2.11.zip to work

(Beta Release May 2, 2022) - New firmware that supports multiple audio formats: TDM2, TDM4, TDM8 so that 16 channel cards and also the new 32 channel MADI, Waves, and Dante cards can be used without having different hub firmware. The format is selected in the config.txt file on the hub (connect USB). "OUTA" and "OUTB" added to the config.txt file so you can pick "1-16" or "17-32" to choose which outputs you want (if the card supports outputting audio). Raised the threshold for the new LED metering so that blue comes on a -46dbFS.
