MOTIF Setting Up
Once you’ve made all the necessary connections between your MOTIF and any other devices, make sure that all
volume settings are turned down all the way to zero. Then turn on the every device in your setup in the order of
MIDI masters (senders), MIDI slaves (receivers), then audio equipment (mixers, ampliﬁers, speakers, etc.). This
ensures smooth signal ﬂow from the ﬁrst device to the last (ﬁrst MIDI, then audio).

each device in the reverse order (ﬁrst audio devices, then MIDI).

power off in this case, turn the SCSI device off after all other devices.
