Remote Control for external sequencer
(Real-time external control surface)
Basic Structure (page 65) · Reference (page 256)
In the last section, you saw how a computer could be used conveniently to augment the features of the MOTIF. Here,
we’ll look at a feature that turns the tables and lets you conveniently use the MOTIF to control your computer.
The Remote Control function lets you use the hardware controls on the panel of the MOTIF to control a variety of
fundamental operations on the sequencing software of your computer. You can mute your tracks, control the
sequencer transport (Play, Stop, Record, etc.), mix both MIDI and audio tracks (up to 16) with the MOTIF’s knobs
and sliders, pan the tracks, control EQ, and tweak effect sends — all without ever touching the mouse. Not only is
this a more convenient and efficient way to work — since it gives you dedicated controls for the functions you use
the most — it also (with the knobs and sliders) gives you finer control over crucial level parameters. If you’ve ever
used a mixing console or a hardware sequencer, you’ll love being able to finally control your sequencing software
with buttons, knobs, and sliders.
Setting Up
Before you can use the Remote Control function, you’ll need to set up the system as described below.
