So unfortunately I upgraded the firmware from 188.8.131.52 to 184.108.40.206.
Followed the Technote to the point, everything seemed to work fine.
Now, when it said the update was complete I unplugged the USB, and after plugging in again, Pads 6, 7 and 8 blink from left to right.
Nothing else is working.
MCC does not detect the Minilab.
When I then press shift on the Minilab, the blinking stops and the "Sync" button in MCC becomes available, but when I click it it says "Device not connected".
Firmware Revision: unknown, when clicking it says "Could not get firmware revision".
At the same time when pressing Shift, the Midi Console in MMC says: "Out: F0 7E 7F 06 01 F7 | Sysex". Which I guess is a request to the Minilab to send its ID, unfortunately there's no response.
The Mac Midi Setup does not recognize the Minilab while the pads are blinking. After pressing Shift on the Minilab, it shows up as ready, but nothing is working.
I'm on OSX 10.8
I'm hoping the device is not bricked and there is a simple solution, as I followed the instructions thoroughly.
I really want to like the Minilab, but things like that are making it hard...
Any help appreciated.
