Setting Up
Connecting to a Personal Computer
By connecting a computer, you can transfer data between the MOTIF and the computer via MIDI, and use the
computer to control, edit and organize data on the MOTIF. For example, you can use the included Voice Editor
program to edit the MOTIF’s voices. There’s also a special File Utility program that lets you use your computer to
manage files in the Memory Card inserted in the MOTIF’s CARD slot or files in the SCSI device connected to the
MOTIF.
Using an USB interface
nIf you are using the Remote Control function to control operations on a computer sequencer, we recommend making connections
with a USB cable.
nThe USB connection can only be used for transfer of MIDI data. No audio data can be transfered via USB.
nWhen you connect your computer to the MOTIF as illustrated above, you will need to select “USB” for MIDI data transmission in
the Utility mode. (page 258)
About the USB connector
USB cables have different connectors on each end: the A type and the B type. When using the USB connection,
connect the A type to your computer and the B type to the MOTIF.
Disconnecting/connecting the USB cable or turning the power off/on may cause the computer operation to hang-up,
or may stop the MOTIF from functioning properly. Be careful NOT to disrupt the USB connection or turn the power
on/off in the following operating conditions.
• While the MOTIF is recognizing the device or while loading the driver.
• While starting or shutting down the operating system.
• While computer operation is suspended (with power management controls such as sleep or hibernation).
• While a MIDI application is starting.
The computer may also hang up and/or the MOTIFs functions may stop if you do the following:
• Turn the power on/off, or connect/disconnect the cable too often.
• Enter the sleep mode while trasmitting the MIDI data, and resume operation.
• Disconnect/connect the cable while the MOTIF is on.
Turn the MOTIF on/off, start the computer, or install driver software while a huge amount of data is being transferred.
