NAME

madfuload - Device firmware loader utility for M-Audio DFU devices  

SYNOPSIS

madfuload [ option ] ...  

DESCRIPTION

madfuload is used to download firmware files to M-Audio DFU devices. These devices require a firmware download before an operating system driver (e.g. ALSA's snd-usb-audio) can access them.

Supported devices:


 - Audiophile
 - Sonica
 - Ozone
 - MobilePre USB (some newer models work without the loader)
 - Transit

The loader is not required for some newer models of the above devices, like the Ozone Academic.
