The WING Firmware Version 1.02 was a minor update and 1.03 inludes some nice added features that user’s will look forward to trying out. Some of the updates are for things that should have been included, like assigning Mute Groups from the Surface, while others, like the addition of a new TC Electronic Reverb are the kind of features you look forward to trying out. Behringer was great about adding features to the X32 long after release date and hopefully they will continue to update the X32 and the WING in a similar way. IF that is the case we can look forward to useful features being added for years to come.

Version 1.03 is Named “Co-Pilot” and supports both the Behringer Co-Pilot App and Mixingstation.

***NEW PLUGIN ALERT*** the TC Electronic VSS3 Reverb with plenty of presets and parameters to experiment with.

Version 1.03 also includes support for the Midas DL251, DL15x, and DL231.

WING Firmware Version 1.02/1.03 Release Notes:

Firmware 1.02 Important Notes

  1. The version 1.02 includes new firmware for the fader boards and an update for the WING LIVE SD recording card, which unlocks exciting new features. Please wait until all boards are updated. Do not switch off during the update.
  2. Reacting on user feedback and for consistency with X32, we have changed the EQ Bandwidth parameter to Q. Hence, existing snapshots will be automatically converted on first load. To make this work properly, please:
    a. Select the Snapshot
    b. make sure all SAFES are inactive
    c. make sure to load the old Snapshot with scope set to ‘ALL’ d. save/overwrite snapshot after successful load
