Merish 3

Merish3 has a software that is constantly evolving and many issues can be solved simply by updating the machine. That is why we invite you to do so following the procedure we described in this page.

Bases management

After you have copied a few bases using the PC-USB connection, or many bases (several hundred) from the USB pen, Merish3 needs to reconstruct all the information for the search function.
This reconstruction procedure is called
Database Rebuilding, and it is done this way:
1- In the main screen, touch on SETUP 
2- Touch on Database
3- Touch on Rebuild Database – HD
This operation may take several minutes (depends on the amount of bases in the internal memory)

  • I copied my bases with the PC and I can’t find them in Merish3, or my bases do not have the correct information, or I do not find them when I press [SEARCH]
    You need to do a database rebuilding. If the base of the database is found without information, the name of the base file will be displayed in the list. This is because the base does not contain any information inside it, you can add information by clicking on the left (midi / mp3) icon and inserting it through the screen.
  • I copied many bases (several hundred) from a USB pen or an external HD but I do not find them when I press [SEARCH]
    You need to do a database rebuilding.
  • When I run a base, I get an error message saying that the file is corrupted
    Merish3 analyzes all bases before playing them, to avoid blocking during execution. If you do not pass this analysis for safety, avoid reproducing it.
    It may happen that some MIDI files are wrongly interpreted as corrupt. If you are sure of this, send them to us by using the contact page, noting that they are files that don’t work.
  • When I play some MP3s I get an error saying that the quality is too low
    Merish plays MP3s with higher bitrates at 64kb / sec
    (do you want to know what is it?) and sampling rate 44.1Khz or 48KHz. Having files that do not meet these requirements means having low-quality MP3s.
    If you want to convert your MP3 you can use this software for PC, that allows you to convert your files for Merish3.
  • When I play a playlist, some bases are marked with a red exclamation point and if I play them, an error message stating that the file is corrupt will come out
    The Playlist is a list of songs to play: Merish3 stores the location in the internal memory of the bases in the list. If, after making the playlist / gateways / renames one of the bases, Merish3 will no longer be able to find it, it will report this situation in advance with a red exclamation mark.
  • When I copy many bases (several hundred) from a USB pen to internal memory, Merish3 crashes
    This problem has already been resolved and probably Merish3 software is not up to date. We suggest you follow the update guide in this procedure. If such situations happen to you, we suggest you to do a database rebuilding.
  • When I navigate my archive and I enter a folder, Merish3 stops or is slowed down.
    This problem has already been resolved and probably Merish3 software is not up to date. We suggest you follow the update guide in this procedure.
    This depended on the number of bases in a single folder: in general, however, it is good practice not to put too many bases in a single folder (it is recommended not to exceed 1,000 bases per folder).
  • Can I format the Merish3 HD with the USB connection and start over with a clean car?
    Absolutely not! Inside the Merish3 archive there is the software and the information that is needed for its operation. If you format your internal memory with the USB connection, you will cause a malfunction that may require the machine to return to recovery assistance! If you want to completely reset the machine, use the software Merish Manager and follow this procedure:
    1- Download this software in your PC and install it
    2- Connect via USB the PC-IN  port of Merish3 with the USB ports of your PC, then turn on Merish3. On the Merish3 display you will see the screen with the Italian and English flags
    3- Launch the program “Merish Manager”
    4-  Click on Reinstall the operative system and delete the bases

Problems when Merish3 starts

  • I turn on the Merish, but the display does not light up at all or lights up with a dim light
    Verify that you have used the correct power adapter. Merish3 needs a 12VDC / 2000mA power supply. Warning! Merish2, Merish Plus or Okyfly power supplies are not compatible.
  • I turn on the Merish, and after displaying the blue M-Live logo for 3 seconds, the display stays black while the keys flash
    Some system files, needed to operate Merish have been altered / moved / deleted / corrupted. To solve this, there is a PC-Windows software called Merish Manager which restores the Merish3 operating system. This is the procedure:
    1- Download this software in your PC and install it
    2- Connect via USB the PC-IN port of Merish3 with the USB ports of your PC, then turn your Merish3 on. On the Merish3 display you will see the screen with the Italian and English flags
    3- Launch your Merish Manager program
    4-  Click on Reinstall the operative system
    This will take a few minutes and will install Merish3 on the latest operating system release without delete your bases.
    When the procedure ends:
    1- turn your Merish3 off
    2- unplug your Merish3 from your PC
    3- turn your Merish3 on again
    4- when the main screen appears again, do a database rebuilding.
  • I turn on the Merish but it stops at the startup screen, without show the lists, while the keys flash.
    Probably Merish3 is not updated to the latest operating system version and many bases (over 1,000) have been copied to the Merish3 root folder (called root) by using the connection to the PC. To remedy, always using the connection to the PC, create a folder on the root and move all bases (or a part of them) inside. For optimum operation of the machine it is good not to store more than 200-300 bases on the root.

Others questions

You may not know that Merish 3 has a Help on Line explaining its features and is accessible in real time by pressing and holding the Enter key for more than 2 seconds. After that, every key that you touch, every potetiometer you move every button on display LCD you tap, Merish 3 will display a window explaining how it works.

  • What kind of external HD I have to have to use it with Merish3 ?
    The Hard Disk can be powered or not, but MUST be formatted ExFAT (ONLY for old hard drives or windows XP you can use FAT32, but we still recommend ExFAT). Merish3 is NOT compatible with NTFS formatting. If you want to know how to format an HD or a USB pen read here.
  • How do I edit song information (title, interpreter, etc) ?
    When you’re on the list that shows the songs, just tap the MIDI logo or the MP3 logo on the left of the list row: the info screen will open. Touching the various fields (title, interpreter, genre, etc.) opens the keyboard to change the content. (We suggest connecting a USB PC keyboard to simplify this type of operation).
  • I had many bases in the quicklist, but after updating I find myself with only 100 bases
    In the latest versions of Merish3 software, the 100-bed limit on the Quick List was introduced, precisely because this must be a “fast” list. To recover the bases, simply connect the Merish to the PC and copy the bases within the “Quicklist” folder to another folder.
