Click on entry to download file or open subdirectory. The current directory including all listed files may be downloaded as ZIP file by clicking on download button (top right).


When unzipped, HX3.5 Editor directory will contain several .BAT batch command files to create customized SDCARD folders (in case you want to use the SD card update feature). Just double-click the matching "make_sdcard_xxx.bat" file for your product and copy content of SDCARD folder to your SD card root directory.

Updates are possible by one of the following methods:

If updating from firmware version below 5.2, update "EEPROM file" also. The EEPROM file contains basic settings and factory-set parameters as well as Voice presets. Voice Presets will be lost with "EEPROM Update". Please see the HX3.5 Editor Manual for details.

After updating firmware and/or EEPROM, execute appropriate INI file for your product in HX3.5 Editor. (config_xxx.ini). For DIY organ installations, adjusting of "System Inits" params may be necessary. Matching "config.ini" files are also contained in SDCARD folder created by .BAT batch command. Additional update installations are noted in the Changelog. Please regard all change notes up to your present version.


04/25/2019 Firmware #5.412

03/08/2019 Firmware #5.411

02/05/2019 Firmware #5.410, Scan #19 (Fatar)

02/05/2019 Firmware #5.409, DSP #01.15/11.15, Scan #18

02/05/2019 Firmware #5.408 BETA

Note: "Latching Preset Keys" mode uses voice preset key #12 ("Cancel" key, Preset12 input pin 12) for voice saving as on HX3 mk4. When using two drawbar sets per manual, set param "2ndDB Select Voice Number" to 15 (Preset12-MPX) resp. 1 (Preset12-2). See HX3.5 Mainboard Wiki for details.

01/27/2019 Firmware #5.407

01/27/2019 Firmware #5.406 BETA, DSP #01.14 (with GM voices) and #11.14 (no GM, but more reverb algorithms), Scan #17

Important: Running config_xxx.ini will only update live preset to new bypass tab functions. Existent presets 1 to 15 must be adjusted manually (set tube amp and rotary sim bypass off to turn sim on). Alternatively, Finalize board presets in HX3.5 Editors Update/Finalize window (all existent presets will be overwritten).

01/09/2019 HX3.5 Editor 5.4051, DSP #01.14 (with GM voices) and #11.14 (no GM, but more reverb algorithms)

12/12/2018 Firmware #5.405, DSP #01.13 (with GM voices) and #11.13 (no GM, but more reverb algorithms)

12/12/2018 Firmware #5.403 BETA, DSP #01.12 (with GM voices) and #11.12 (no GM, but more reverb algorithms)

Please update DSP to 01.12 or 11.12 first before attempting firmware or FPGA updates!

Click "Start DFU" in HX3.5 Editor's "Update/Finalize Panel" to start DFU Update. Firmware #5.4 only works with DSP #01.12 resp. #11.12 and vice versa. See Update Notes above!

Common firmware and EEPROM files for all products now contained in HX3.5 Editor 5.4 ZIP from now on - no need to download UPDATE ZIPs separately if not using SD Card for updates.

10/13/2018 Firmware 5.301, Scan Driver #17

Update Scan Driver if using MIDI input with masterkeyboards (will handle split itself). If you want to retain previous split function (affects sound generator), do not update Scan Driver or use #16 (enclosed).

09/19/2018 Firmware 5.300

Firmware 5.3 set to final status (no changes since last version 5.300 BETA). Only "Firmware Update" (no EEPROM) necessary if updating from 5.105 and up.

KNOWN BUG: SysEx Communications will fail on MIDI Channels other than 1. Therefore, HX3.5 Editor will no longer work with MIDI over USB connection. Workaround: With HX3.5 MenuPanel, set MIDI Channel to 1 and store. In HX3.5 Editor, set parameter 1368 to 0 (= MIDI Channel 1).

09/19/2018 DSP Firmware HX35_5504-FW_0106.dfu, Firmware 5.202 BETA

Only "Firmware Update" (no EEPROM) necessary if updating from 5.105 and up.

09/19/2018 Firmware #5.200, HX3.5 Editor #5.200

09/19/2018 DSP Firmware HX35_5504-FW_0105.dfu and HX35_5504-FW_noGM_1105.dfu

DSP updates are included in the HX3.5 Editor ZIP. See DSP Update Page for details.

09/20/2018 Scan Driver 5x.16 for Scan61-Inline and Scan16

For using the Scan61-Inline and Scan16 driver, just run "upd_sr61.ini" from HX3.5 setup file menu (SD card) or update scan driver from HX3.5 Editor's Update/Finalize window. "scansr61.dat" and "upd_sr61.ini" can be found in the "UPDATE StdOrgan.ZIP".

09/19/2018 Firmware #5.105, HX3.5 Editor #5.105, Scan Driver 5x.16

For updates from #5.103 and below to #5.105 select "Firmware/EEPROM" and "Scan Driver File" in HX3.5 Editor's Update/Finalize Window and Execute "config.ini" from Editor. SD card updates will handle this automatically.

Hx3.5 will create a "preset.dat" file (button "Get & Save Preset Block" in "Advanced" page) if connected by FTDI. This file contains all preset settings in binary form. It may be uploaded by menu in Update/Finalize window or copied to an SD card. If HX3.5 finds this file on a firmware update, it will be loaded into preset memory.

Preset structure will not change in future, so this file may also be used as a backup.

09/12/2018 Firmware #5.104 BETA, HX3.5 Editor #5.104, Scan Driver 5x.15

For updates to #5.104 select "Firmware/EEPROM" and "Scan Driver File" in HX3.5 Editor's Update/Finalize Window and Execute "config.ini" from Editor. SD card updates will handle this automatically.

09/07/2018 Firmware #5.102, HX3.5 Editor #5.100, DSP #1.04

From firmware 5.1 and up, there is only one firmware common for all devices (exception: MAG and UHL organs). Firmware is "personalized" to work on a particular device by running a "config_xxx" INI script ("config_xxx.ini") from editor or by using SD card after update is done.

If using an SD card for update, a script called "config.ini" is run automatically after firmware update by "autorun.ini" (if present on card). "config.ini" is simply a renamed "config_xxx.ini" file.

Please backup Licence Info before updating to #5.102! Unfortunately, older firmwares had a data offset bug which did not retain licence information and board defaults. When updating to #5.102, execute the "factory_xxx.ini" script dedicated for your board application from HX3.5 Editor's Finalize window or run "factory.ini" on SD card from HX3.5 Script Menu.

08/30/2018 Firmware #5.096, HX3.5 Editor #5.095

08/25/2018 Firmware #5.093, HX3.5 Editor #5.09, DSP #01.03

08/16/2018 Firmware #5.091, HX3.5 Editor

Important: Please update firmware twice, otherwise Button Remaps may contain garbage. With update by FTDI or MIDI using HX3.5 Editor, updating firmware is sufficient. "Finalize" with HX3.5 Editor or by SD card INI script after update.

08/16/2018 Firmware #5.090, Scan Driver #14, HX3.5 Editor

Note: Disable Param 1497 (Sync Voice Numbers) in "System Inits" to enable GM Voice numbers saved in Overall Presets. From this FW and up, param 1497 will be disabled by default. Do "Finalize" with HX3.5 Editor after update!
