MIDI checksum error. An error occurred when receiving bulk data.
Bulk protected. Bulk data or a SCSI message was received when RcvBulk was set to “protect.” (See page 258.)
Device number is off. Bulk data cannot be transmitted/received since the device number is off.

card or disk.
Bad disk or card. The card or disk is unusable. Format the card or disk and try again.
Disk or card not ready. A card or disk is not properly inserted in or connected to the MOTIF.
Disk or card unformatted. The card or disk is not formatted, or the format is unusable by the MOTIF. Check the card/disk contents.
Disk or card write protected. The card or disk is write protected, or you have attempted to write to a read-only medium such as CD-ROM.
Illegal disk or card. The format type of the SCSI disk or Memory card is wrong.
Illegal ﬁle. The ﬁle speciﬁed for loading is unusable by the MOTIF.
Illegal ﬁle name. The speciﬁed ﬁle name is unacceptable. Try entering a different name.
Read only ﬁle. You have attempted to delete, rename, or overwrite a read-only ﬁle.
Can't make folder. No more directories can be created below the current level.
Folder is too deep. Directories below this level cannot be accessed.

Folder not empty You attempt to delete a folder that contains data.
Unsupported disk The disk (memory card or SCSI device connected to the MOTIF) is not supported by the MOTIF.
Seq memory full.
The internal memory for Sequence data is full. The internal memory for Sequence data is full, preventing any further
operation (such as recording, editing, Job execution, MIDI reception/transmission, or loading from Memory card or SCSI
drive). Try again after erasing unwanted song, pattern, or user phrase data.
Choose user phrase. You have attempted to record a pattern track to which a preset phrase is assigned. If you wish to use a preset phrase as
a starting data for pattern recording, copy it to a user phrase before recording.
No data. When a Song/Pattern Job is executed, the selected track or range contains no data. Select an appropriate track or range.
Illegal check box. No check boxes have been checked in a Sequencer track Job which requires a check box selection. Check the
appropriate check box.
No F7 (End of Exc.) Exclusive data has been entered or changed without the necessary “End of Exclusive” byte (F7). Make sure F7 is
Pattern length mismatch. A Pattern Job will result in the length of a Pattern being greater than 256 measures.
Phrase length mismatch A Pattern Job will result in the length of a phrase being greater than 256 measures.
Phrase number overﬂow The maximum number of phrases (256) has been exceeded when recording, executing a Pattern Job, or editing.
Illegal input. An unacceptable input or value has been speciﬁed. Check the input method or value.
Illegal track number. An unacceptable track number has been speciﬁed in the Song/Pattern mode. Select the track again.
Illegal phrase number. An unacceptable phrase number has been speciﬁed in the Pattern mode. Select the phrase again.
Illegal measure. An unacceptable measure number has been speciﬁed in the Song/Pattern mode. Select the measure again.
Meter mismatch In the Pattern Job mode, the meter (time signature) of the destination pattern is different from the meter of the source pattern.
Sample memory full. The sample memory is full and further sampling operations, Jobs, or load operations cannot be executed.
Too many samples. The maximum overall number of samples (8192) has been exceeded.
Sample is too short. The sample length is too short and the Frequency Convert Job cannot be executed.
Sample freq is too low. The sampling frequency is too low and the Frequency Convert Job cannot be executed.
Illegal sample data. The sample ﬁle speciﬁed for loading is unusable by the MOTIF.
No sample data. The linked sample ﬁles cannot be found during a load operation.
Sample is too long. The sample size is too large and the Time Stretch Job cannot be executed.
SIMM conﬁguration error. An appropriate pair of expansion SIMMs is not properly installed, or the pair is not properly matched (page 287).

should be installed to slot 3.
Effect plug-in is not in slot 1. The Effect Plug-in board does not work because it has not been installed to slot 1. The Effect Plug-in board should be
installed to slot 1.
