Updating your Sylphyo and Link (macOS)

This page provides you with all the needed instructions to update your Sylphyo to the latest version.

Updating your Sylphyo and Link should only last a few minutes. You will download and open the update utility, and use the utility to update your instrument.

Download and open the update utility

Click here to download the last version of the update utility.

Once the file has been downloaded, unzip it. For instance, you can click the downloaded file in the Downloads stack.

The update utility should now appear in a new Finder window. To open it, right-click (or control-click) its icon in the Finder, and select the Open menu item.

The Finder might display a message saying that the application comes from an unidentified developer. If you are sure that your file was downloaded from aodyo.com, you can proceed by clicking the Open button.

Use the utility to update your instrument

Once the window of the update utility appears, you're ready to update your devices.

Do not power it on or plug it in yet. Just click the Update button first.

Then, plug your device directly into the USB port of your computer, and turn it on.

The update should automatically begin. Try not to touch, turn off, or disconnect your device until the update ends. If this is the first time you update your Sylphyo, the update can look like it is stuck looking for a device. Please wait for up to 5 minutes, the time your operating system registers the new device, before trying again.

A message will appear once the update is complete.

If you have both a Sylphyo and a Link, please update both: they need to run the same software version in order to be able work together.

Having trouble?

Problems can happen after a failed or incomplete update. If the above steps do not seem to work, this section will help you identify and solve your issue.
