  • Studio 4.7

    you answer : "Hello Andy Dix, please do not update the version v1.052. Therefore you need the GR_Studio 4.7"
    Kind regards Graupner
    So where is possible to download 4.7 ?? Only 4.6 is available but you let people to download 1.052 for Mz24!


  • Answer "Studio 4.7"

    Hello Davide Dreossi,

    for the mz-24 the current certified version is 1.042.
    For the update version 1.042 you need the Firmware 4.6.
    The version 1.05x and the firmware 4.7 are not certified and not issued by Graupner/SJ GmbH.
    So you can not download the firmware 4.7 at our update blog.

    Kind regards

    Bonjour M. Fonvielle

    Vous pouvez utiliser le programme d’urgence en téléchargeant le fichier bin
    Lancer la procédure avec l’émetteur à l’arrêt, puis mettre l’émetteur en marche lorsque la barre verte commence à défiler.
    Si cela ne fonctionne pas appelez-moi au 03 87 85 62 12

  • Model Data read not working

    Using v4.7 of the software with an MZ-24 Pro running 2v.025, Model Data read does not work at all. PC side is grayed out and can't select files. If I click the Read Start button, I get an error that says "connected device not supported". Meanwhile, the MZ firmware update worked, I can read the TX time, and I can read all the sound files. So the connection is working but not the Model Data feature on either the PC or controller side. I have tried this on both a laptop and a desktop both running Windows 7 Pro 64 bit.

  • Answer "Model Data read not working"

    Hello Mr Rhodes,

    the model memory can only take place with internet connection.
    If you have internet connection please contact our service directly .

  • analyze logdata

    I use the Firmware_Upgrade_grStudio Version 4.9 to analyze my log file.
    I have a question.
    Is it possible to copy the data on the Log View screen to memory < ctrl > C or a .csv file to export for further analysis?
    I think if this is possible you can make many users happy with it.

    grts Peter

  • Answer "analyze logdata"

    Hello Peter,

    for more detailed analysed better use the Data Explorer software.

    Kind regards


  • Reply answer "analyze logdata"

    Thank you for the reply!
    I tried this but the DataExplorer does not put always a good output on the screen.
    The output of Firmware_Upgrade_grStudio this is correct but I can not save or export the loose data further.
    It would be nice if they could.
    Do you think that option this can be added or is there maybe a workarroud to do this ?

    grtz Peter

  • Answer "Reply answer "analyze logdata"

    Hello Peter,

    you can adust almost everything on the output screen. I think you need to work more with the data explorer to see, which possibilities it does have.
    It can also export the files to .csv.

    Feel free to get in touch with our service department for more information.

    Kind regards
