Motif XF Editor Standalone USB (Mac)
The Motif XF Editor Standalone/VST version 1.6.2 can be run as either a Standalone application or inside a compatible VST3 host application like Cubase. Here we will discuss the STAND ALONE version. This can be used on your computer and can run along side any DAW software - when not in use you can simply keep it minimized as it will run in the background without hindering your DAW software. When you desire to edit or backup your Motif XF data you can simply bring it the front - when not in use you can simply keep it minimized as it will run in the background without hindering your DAW software. When you desire to edit or backup your Motif XF data you can simply bring it the front.
When you are using the Motif XF with the Yamaha USB-MIDI driver you need to verify the following settings in your Motif XF:
Press [F5] CONTROL
Press [SF2] MIDI
Ensure that the Interface MIDI IN/OUT = USB
Press [STORE] to write this preference to your Flash ROM.
Now, let’s setup your Macintosh computer:
Find the Yamaha USB-MIDI icon in your SYSTEM PREFERENCES, under the OTHERS category
Double click the icon to open the Control Panel.
The DEVICE NAME area identifies your connected device(s): Motif XF7 (yours may read Motif XF6 or XF8 depending on the exact model you own)
The current Yamaha USB-MIDI version will be shown at the bottom.
* Launch the Motif XF Editor Standalone/VST version 1.6.2
The main window will appear (Go to FILE > SETUP..)
Setup the Motif XF Editor
· Click on FILE > SETUP on the Motif XF Editor toolbar
Here you want to setup the communication between the Motif XF and the Editor.
Select the USB radio button, and set “DETAIL” = ON
On the PORT 1 row set MIDI IN and MIDI OUT to your Motif XF port 1
On the PORT 4 row set MIDI IN and MIDI OUT to your Motif XF port 4
Shown below for the Motif XF7:
Next you make a decision about the direction of communication. You need to consider:
When you open a Motif XF Editor file, how do you want the Editor to behave?
Typically, when you create a new Project you might want the Editor to clear a new MIX for you. There is a function to initialize a new Multi within the Editor.
When you are restoring a previously saved project you will want the Editor to send your saved data back to the Motif XF. Therefore you will want to have data sent FROM the Editor TO the Motif XF.
As you can see I have the Auto Sync Setting set to GLOBAL = PC > Motif XF and CURRENT = PC > Motif XF
This is so that the Total Recall function will send the Current MIX from the computer to the Motif XF when I open an EDITOR file. Restoring my Mix to my Motif XF.
I have the VOICE option set to OFF, as I don’t often need to reload all the User Voices (but you can set this as your prefer). If “VOICE” set to ON, then the Editor can restore all your USER1, USER2, USER3, USER4 and USER Drum Kit Voices to your Motif XF each time. It is your choice.
Auto Start is ON
Set the GENERAL SETTING as you prefer. The Keyboard Velocity function when set to “FREE” will change how loud the note plays by where on the keyboard icon KEY you click. This is pretty cool…
· Click OK
On the main Motif XF Editor screen you want to make sure that the Editor is ONLINE.
Motif Xf8 Editor For Mac Windows 7
A dot appears next to “ONLINE” when you are communicating. In the left upper corner you will see the Modes: VOICE, SONG and PATTERN followed by the “ONLINE” button.
Free Amortization Software free download - TubeMate, TubeMate 3, Free Scanner Software, and many more programs. Amortization Schedule Calculator is a free and basic software used to make Amortization tables. Add details like loan amount, loan length, payment frequency, annual interest rate, and loan start date. Amortization programs free.
Communication is bi-directional and simultaneous so selecting the mode here will change your hardware and vice-versa.
USING the ONLINE/OFFLINE function
The ONLINE option has 3 status conditions. It will read either:
· *ONLNE w/dot – This means you are communicating and all is well
· *OFFLINE w/dot – you are temporarily offline but all is well
· OFFLINE – you have trouble. Please check your connections
The OFFLINE w/dot indicator is important because you will at some point need to make changes on the hardware and not have the software follow you. This can occur when you are looking for a SONG or PATTERN already in the Motif XF – the Editor will attempt to synchronize each time you scroll through a song. Therefore it is useful to click this option when you want to temporarily break communication. You can click ON and OFFLINE as necessary.
If you change modes and go to VOICE mode or to PERFORMANCE mode on the Motif XF hardware front panel, the Motif XF Editor will go temporarily *OFFLINE w/dot.
On the Toolbar of the Motif XF Editor you will see the BULK option. This is what you use to request a bulk to (Transmit) or from (Receive) the Motif XF. You can select the Current MIX, and any of the USER Banks or ALL of the USER Banks.
Do not change your preference in the FILE > SETUP > AUTO SYNC SETTING – when you need to send or receive data from the Motif XF use this BULK option.
Click BULK > DATA SYNC
You can select to RECEIVE data from the Motif XF. This sends a BULK REQUEST. Select the options you wish to capture: Just the CURRENT Mixing setup, GLOBAL or Utility settings, your FAVORITES selections, and any or all of the USER Voice banks (Voice data only, no samples). Or you can simply select the “ALL” option to capture everything. The BULK DATA SYNC can be executed even with the EDITOR “OFFLINE w/dot”
This Editor can be used in what is called “stand alone” mode, where it runs along side of your favorite DAW. When you want to work with the Motif XF you simply bring it forward, otherwise keep it hidden or minimized. When you are finished working, make sure you save a STUDIO MANAGER File (.YSM) - this will save all your data concerning the Motif XF.
For more details on working with the EDITOR please (please) click HELP on the tool bar and read the online Manual
