    My system consists of a DM64 without a surface. The plan is to use iPads and the editor software for people to mix their own auxes. I know the iPad software isn’t out yet but I got my hands on the Director software today.

    How am I supposed to connect my laptop to the DM64? Which network port should I use? Do I have to manually set up my laptop’s IP address? Is it even possible to update the firmware in the DM64 without a console?

    I’ve tried every port with my laptop and the DM64 and nothing currently works.

    How on earth have you run it without a surface up until now?

    You can update your DM64 firmware by using the HTTP interface (“point” a Web browser at your MixRack).

    Hi Rich,

    Your laptop connects to one of the Network ports on the MixRack. Alternatively you can set up a wireless access point. See the Director Help for details. The default address for the MixRack is, so your laptop will need a compatible, static IP (for example and same subnet (

    You can update the firmware using a browser. Download the firmware package on your laptop. Type in the MixRack IP address in your browser and you should see a setup page. Select Update Firmware and locate the Firmware.tar.xz archive in the Firmware/TLD-MiRackFirmware folder.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks, I figured it was an IP thing. I’ll try that out today.
