The firmware provided upon receiving was selected to be the best firmware for your batch.
Geek Out Firmware Upgrade
From time to time newer versions of the Geek Out firmware will be released to fix bugs, and/or add functionality. The Device Firmware Upgrade (DFU) utility will need to be used to complete the upgrade.
*** IMPORTANT NOTE ***
As of this writing (November 2015), the Geek Out firmware can only be upgraded from a Windows computer that has the Light Harmonic Audio Driver installed. The Light Harmonic DFU utility is installed on the computer as part of that process.
The Light Harmonic DFU utility for Mac is currently in development, but because of operational issues beyond our control, it is currently not available for distribution.
This firmware is only compatible with Geek Out Version 1. It is not compatible with Geek Out V2 or Geek Out V2+ models.
*** IMPORTANT NOTE ***
In order to perform the firmware upgrade, the newest version of the firmware will need to be downloaded from here:

Light Harmonic Device Firmware Upgrade
To upgrade the Geek Out firmware, the Light Harmonic DFU utility will need to be on the computer (it is installed along with the Light Harmonic Audio Driver).
The Light Harmonic DFU utility is installed to the following location by default:
Local Disk (C:) – Program Files – Light Harmonic – USB_Audio_Driver
Double-click the LightHarmonicDfu file to open the utility (the Geek Out must be connected). The utility interface is shown below:
Click the Browse… button to locate the Geek_Out_Firmware_1V5 bin file. Select the bin file and click Open.
The bin file location will be displayed in the Firmware box, and messages that the device is opened and ready for firmware update will be displayed in the Upgrade box.
Click the Start button to begin the upgrade process. A progress bar will be displayed.
Once the firmware upgrade is complete a message will be displayed that the firmware is being started, and that the firmware upgrade finished successfully.
After the upgrade is complete, close the utility, and disconnect the Geek Out.
After 10 seconds, reconnect the Geek Out. Be sure to test that the Geek Out plays back audio and is free of any bugs that may have been present previously.
