Setting Up
Connecting External MIDI Equipment
Using a standard MIDI cable (available separately), you can connect an external MIDI device, and control it from the
MOTIF. Likewise, you can use an external MIDI device (such as a keyboard or sequencer) to control the sounds on
the MOTIF. Below are several different MIDI connection examples; use the one most similar to your intended setup.
Controlling from an external MIDI keyboard
Controlling an external MIDI keyboard
Recording and playback using an external MIDI sequencer
Controlling another MIDI device via MIDI THRU
In the above setup, Synthesizer 2 can be played from the MOTIF (via MIDI OUT), while the external sequencer
plays Synthesizer 1 (via MIDI THRU).
nThe MIDI cable should be no greater than 15 meters in length, and there should be no more than three devices in a MIDI chain
(chained in series via each unit’s MIDI THRU). To connect more units, use a MIDI Thru Box for parallel connections. You may
encounter errors if the MIDI cables are too long or if too many devices are chained together via their MIDI THRU connectors.
Using an mLAN interface (when an optional mLAN8E has been installed)
nAny one of the these interfaces can be used for MIDI data transmission/reception: the MIDI connectors, the mLAN terminal
connector, or the USB connector. However, they cannot be used at the same time. Select which connector is used for MIDI data
transfer in the Utility mode. See page 259.
