What you will need to update your V-4EX
Caution when performing the update
  • We recommend that you back your user data up before you perform the update. If a problem occurs and your user data is lost, you will be able to restore the original state by restoring the data you backed up. For details on the procedure, refer to the Owner's Manual.
  • Never apply this update data to any product other than the V-4EX. This update data may destroy the data or system program of other products.
  • Never power-off your V-4EX while the update is in progress!
    If a power failure or similar accident occurs during the update process, the V-4EX won’t be able to start up in normal operating mode. This will require servicing, so you will need to contact Roland service center near you if this occurs.
