44 MOTIF Basic Structure
Waves and Elements
Waves are the waveforms that make up the Elements, which in turn make up a Voice. A total of 1309 high-quality
preset Waves are available. As shown in the following illustration, when creating a Voice, you can select the Wave to
be used as an Element and then set its level, pitch, tone and other parameters.
User Waves — Samples
One very powerful feature of the MOTIF is its ability to import external audio samples (such as computer WAV/
AIFF ﬁles), and record audio as well — and then use those samples as instrument sounds for playback. You can
record Waves through the microphone or line level jacks, and you can load Waves saved on Memory Card or an
external SCSI device.
The Waves can then be processed and assigned to notes on the keyboard. You can play them via the keyboard or you
can assign them as Parts of a Song/Pattern.
