It is worth noting that if you have kept previous firmware upgrades on your SD card, when you go to install the new firmware, it'll ask you if you are trying to install the oldest firmware on that card first. Answering "No" will then bring on the prompt asking if you wish to install the next oldest firmware, and so on until the newest one appears. So there is no need to delete the older firmware updates, in order to install the new update, but of course there is no particular need to keep them either...

What seems nonexistent right now is a dual right-angle USB-C cable under 3 feet.

FWIW, I keep this permanently attached to my MixPre6 which is inside a portabrace bag. It is right angled and only about 6 inches, so you could combine this with a short cable right angled at one end too. I read some people had issues with this type of connector, but not with this particular one. I have used it with 3 different batteries and no issues at all.

Nothing conclusive but I'm flagging a potential issue and word of caution about recent firmware.

Make it 4. I did a Danjo set on Saturday and it has the "phasing". Weird that the Cowboy Junkies set I did on Sunday doesn't seem suffer from it. Something in the FW for sure.
