Firmware Summary
E-MU X Board 25 and X Board 49 Firmware Update 0.25.

New Features:

  • Data Slider Sends Universal Master Volume - This message is sent in response to Data Slider adjustments whenever the device is in Home mode. The "All Broadcast" device ID is used ĘC any downstream device which supports this message should respond to it, regardless of its own SysEx device ID setting.
  • Edit Parameter Value Inc/Dec using Octave Buttons - This feature can be used whenever the Data Slider is active for making an adjustment of any sort. The response to increment / decrement value changes is the same as the response to data slider input. Therefore, this feature can also be used to adjust non-numeric settings, including selecting options in the X1 menu.
  • The decimal points in the 3-digit display are now used to indicate USB/MIDI activity. From left to right: USB in, USB out, MIDI out. The indicators can be useful for troubleshooting your setup. If you find them distracting, they can be switched off (see next item).
  • Added setting to Enable/Disable USB/MIDI Activity Indicators - Accessible as the new third item in the X1 menu. The menu item label is "ind". After selection, the prompt "in-out indiCAtorS" appears every few seconds.


  • Pitch Wheel will Trigger Value Display when set to CC Mode - Standard controller display (as per the knobs) is performed in this case. When the Pitch Wheel is programmed to send Pitch Bend messages, no controller display is triggered by Pitch Wheel activity.
  • Controllers Not Active in Browse Modes (Program Browse / Patch Recall / Patch Store / MIDI Channel Select) - This has been corrected. Now, all controllers remain active in the modes indicated above and will send MIDI messages as they do normally. However, those controls which normally trigger value-change display sequences when actuated (e.g., the sixteen knobs) will not do so in these modes, in order to ensure that they do not interfere with setting adjustments being made via the Data Entry Slider or the Octave Down / Octave Up buttons.


  • Microsoft Windows XP or Windows 2000, or Macintosh OS X version 10.2.8 or higher.
  • Creative Professional E-MU? X Board 25 or X Board 49.
