This update fixes the issue with the Samson Q2U not functioning after the computer has been turned off and back on; needing to unplug and replug the microphone each time the computer restarts.
Version 3 of this firmware works correctly with "rev 2" and "rev 3" Q2U hardware, and can fix Q2U with corrupted or blanked firmware.
Download the Q2U Firmware Updater
To patch a Q2U:
- Extract the zip file on a computer running Windows
- Plug the Q2U into a USB port on that machine
- Run the file Q2U firmware update v3.exe
It should automatically update it.
I made an account simply to say THANK YOU SO MUCH. This was the only qualm I had about this mic and now it's fixed. I am infinitely thankful. Have a great life Sean.
Is there a firmware updater that runs on macOS?
this firmware breaks sound deck microphone enhancements.
THANK YOU! this has resolved the major annoyance of replugging it into USB just for it to work
I cannot express what a relief it is to finally have this! Thank you so much!
Hi Sean, I cannot get this firmware going. The updater window opens up (your first image) but no further action occurs... any advice please? Windows 10 on Intel NUC.
Update - updated the microphone firmware successfully on a separate PC
Update - firmware update works as intended - microphone now consistently works after each windows boot
Please help with firmware upgrading on Macos, especially if we don't have access to a windows machine.
