Lightbulb VENUE D-Show 2.8.5 Console Software Update

You can download the 2.8.5 software update (for all systems running 2.8, 2.8.1, and 2.8.2) from the following page:

VENUE D-Show 2.8.5 Console Software Update

VENUE D-Show 2.8.5 Console Software Update
May 6, 2010

For VENUE D-Show®, VENUE Profile, VENUE Mix Rack, and VENUE SC48 Systems

D-Show 2.8.5 addresses issues discovered after the release of D-Show 2.8, and includes all fixes provided previously in D-Show 2.8.1 and D-Show 2.8.2. Affected VENUE systems running D-Show software version 2.8.x can be updated using the D-Show 2.8.5 update.

Please Note: VENUE systems running version 2.7 or earlier must first be upgraded to D-Show 2.8.1 before applying the D-Show 2.8.5 update. D-Show 2.8.1 Upgrade Kits are available for purchase from any VENUE reseller.

Who Should Use D-Show Console Software Version 2.8.5?

This update is recommended for all D-Show 2.8.x console software users and contains fixes in the following areas:
  • Plug-in processing
  • Snapshot crossfades
  • Device discovery
  • Personal Q

What's Fixed in Version 2.8.5?

The following issues are present in all previous versions of D-Show software 2.8.x, and are now fixed in version 2.8.5.

Fixed: Plug-in Noise issue (Item VSW-5077)
  • Inserting plug-ins in the Plug-ins Rack sometimes produces noise on the channels with plug-ins inserted, or causes audio to stop passing through the plug-in. This can happen, for example, when adding plug-ins to the Plug-ins Rack, when moving plug-ins between rack slots, or when loading a Show file.
  • The issue is limited to system configurations using 0, 8 or 16 Graphic EQs (GEQs), and is most likely to occur immediately after modifying the configuration of the Plug-ins Rack (including loading a Show file). There is little chance of encountering the issue during a performance; however, it could arise when switching Show files between bands (each with its own plug-ins rack), or during a rehearsal when the engineer is trying different plug-in configurations.
Fixed: Snapshot Crossfades can Cause the Console Fader Position to Show an Incorrect Value (Item VSW-5160)
  • When using crossfades to transition between snapshots, the console faders may show a different position than the actual value, which is shown on-screen. When this occurs, touching a fader may cause a noticeable jump in level.
Fixed: Lost Control Surface Components are Not Shown as Missing on the Options > Devices Tab (Item VSW-5158)
  • When a VENUE Profile console, VENUE D-Show Main or VENUE D-Show Sidecar is lost (such as during a power failure, or when the unit is turned off or disconnected from system) the unit remains visible on the Options > Devices tab instead of being shown as not connected.
Fixed: Blue “Controller Detected” LEDs in PQ View of the Outputs Page Fail to Illuminate when the System is Initially Powered Up (Item VSW-5752)
  • If the Personal Q Rack is connected when the system is initially powered on, any connected Personal Q Controllers will fail to report their "Controller Detected" status on the Outputs Page of the D-Show software. Power cycle the PQ Rack or hot plug the PQ Controllers to refresh the "Controller Detected" status.
