DROP + Sonarworks Panda Release
Today’s the day. SoundID + Custom EQ update is available for Panda.
For this first update, you’ll need to use our OTW update tool, download the windows or Mac version here:
For best results, power off your panda, turn off BT on all paired devices (computer, ipad, phone, etc), and connect via the included USB-C cable and start the update process.
It should take about two minutes, and at the end you should see firmware version 20003 displayed:
Now, activate BT on the device that you’re using for SoundID (iphone, android, etc), connect Panda, and open the SoundID application (make sure you downloaded the update today).
At the bottom right of the SoundID app you’ll see a “+” and the word “connect” below it. Press there, and on the next menu you should see DROP Panda, and an option to connect on the next screen.
Initial connection and profile upload should take about two minutes (once you complete your SoundID profile). This load time is required for any profile you upload to Panda.
The SoundID app will tell you when the upload is complete and from the connection menu you can toggle on and off the SoundID personalization.
Congratulations, your Panda is updated, you have access to parametric equalization via the “customize” option on the profile selection screen (main screen of the application, press the SoundID visual on the top half of the screen).
It’s been a journey, but we’re here folks, post your favorite curves and respond here with questions!
