Every link on this forum and site I've been able to find that has the latest Ion Firmware and Factory patch bank has been a broken link. Does anyone have these? I just bought an Ion and I need to update the firmware and install the factory patches.

Hello,

Thanks for posting about your legacy Ion.

You can download the firmware for your Ion from my Google Drive account here. I believe this also included the presets. Please be aware this link will expire in 48 hours.

Sorry for the confusion. Please use this Google Drive link here. This will link you to a folder with the presets and the latest firmware. 

I hope this helps!

Hi Bill, I too have purchased an Ion synth and I tried to follow the link that you posted in this most recent comment of yours, only to find that Google Drive is telling me it's in your trash and instructs me to ask the sharer to restore it. Is it possible to have the file restored so that I can use it to bring my new-to-me Ion back to factory specs and presets? Please and thank you!
