Hi just a quick question , I brought a used Roland Prelude version 1 and wanted to upgrade to v2, on the roland website there is a update for the prelude with latin section but mine is a european collection and the latin wont work . Is it me doing it wrong or do i need the european update , if so where can i download that from ???? any ideas

Hmm, I'm surprised. All of the ones I've seen in the U.S. had the Latin collection, but I thought the firmware was interchangeable on all of them. When you say that it "didn't work," what happens? Does it display an error message?

If you really need v2 for the European version, perhaps you can try the Roland support website for one of the European countries? Just a thought.

I guess in my first response I was thinking of the GW-8 (which is similar, but without speakers.) Are you trying to use GW-8 firmware to update the Prelude? That probably WON'T work.

Honestly I wasn't even aware that the prelude came in geographic variations (Latin, European, etc.), although I know that the GW-8 did.

Have you run the update v2.0 ?....... unpack the zipfile first and copy it to the root off your pendrive ???....

it doesn't make a difference if you have eu or latin version a update will always overwrite the whole database

Is it just the styles you want? Or did the firmware add different samples to the ROM?

If it is just the styles, I am sure someone probably has them somewhere…
