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.

To patch a Q2U:
- Extract the zip file on a computer running Windows
