Drivers and Utilities

Uploading firmware requires a Windows or Mac computer and a USB cable.  Install the USB driver first, then open and follow the instructions in the .ZIP file for the appropriate Disaster Uploader.  Firmware files are listed below.

ALL DISASTER AREA PEDALS SHIP WITH THE MOST CURRENT FIRMWARE AVAILABLE.  YOU SHOULD NOT NEED TO UPDATE FIRMWARE ON NEW PEDALS.

IMPORTANT NOTE:

Programming the wrong firmware into your pedal can result in incorrect operation of the pedal.  Please make sure that you are using the correct version and type of firmware for your pedal.

Any Disaster Area pedal with an LED screen is a “Gen2” pedal.  This includes the DMC-3XL Gen2, DMC-4 Gen2, DMC-6D, DMC-7D.  In addition, the DPC-8EZ is also a Gen2 pedal.  These pedals all require Gen2 firmware to operate.  If you accidentally load Gen1 firmware into them, they will cease to function.  Please contact Disaster Area for instructions on how to recover from an incorrect upload.
