System 6000: At preset change the Icon shows "unused engine"

Question

When changing presets the Icon will sometimes show the following message "unused engine" and does not load the preset. Why?

Answer

This is due to a mismatch between the Frame/DSP versions and the icon version (quite frequent with Icon version 5.xx). Make sure that your Icon software is up to date in all cases: 

  • 7.5 for the old Icon hardware
  • Latest for the Icon hardware mkII and for the Icon Editor.
