Step 3: Connecting Touché (SE) and updating its firmware with Lié Standalone

Touché (SE) and its companion app Lié always have to share the same firmware version in order to work correctly together. This is why you will have to perform a firmware update before using your Touché (SE) for the first time with Lié. it is important that Lié is granted a stable and exclusive USB connection to Touché (SE) for the update to succeed. This is why we recommend using the standalone version of Lié instead of a plug-in version when flashing the firmware.

  1. Connect your Touché (SE) to your computer, using the branded cable coming with the unit. Don't use a USB hub in between. Instead, connect it directly, at least for the firmware update process. When plugging, make sure that Touché (SE) sits on a stable, horizontal surface and that you don't put pressure on its Touch-Plate.
     
  2. Launch the standalone application of Lié. To easily find it, hit the Windows key and type 'Lie' on a PC, or type 'Lie' in Spotlight Search on a Mac. Make sure that there is no DAW running in the background that could possibly block the USB connection.
     
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions to perform the firmware update. You will get shown a popup saying that the firmware on your device doesn't match the version of Lié. Confirm. The instructions will include the request to unplug and replug your Touché (SE). Instead of doing this, you could also just press and hold the Encoder for 2 seconds to send your unit into Sleep Mode. Replugging is simulated by waking it up afterwards via pressing any button. If you should face problems during the firmware update process, please follow the guidelines in this article: Fixing problems with updating Touché (SE)'s firmware

Apply pressure to Touché (SE)'s Touch-Plate to see if it is reflected in the realtime view in Lié's Scope. The LEDs on your unit should be white, indicating that Touché (SE) is in Slave Mode, connected to Lié.
