Track structure of Pattern
Patterns consist of Phrases (as shown below), and you
can create them by recording MIDI data for each track,
and by freely arranging the various Phrases (Preset/User).
Pattern playback uses up to 16 parts (from those shown
Style and Section
A Pattern consists of a “Style” (musical style) and a
“Section” (pattern variation). You can play the Pattern
by selecting a Style and its Section.
This is the basic MIDI sequence data — and the
smallest unit — used in creating a Pattern.
“Phrase” is a musical Pattern Phrase for a single
instrument, such as a rhythm pattern for the rhythm
part, a bass line for the bass part, or a chord backing for
the guitar part. The MOTIF features 128 Preset
Patterns, and features memory space for 256 of your
own original User Phrases.
Pattern creation by the Patch
function (Pattern)
Quick Start Guide (page 105) · Reference (page 219)
The Patch function allows you to create a “composite”
style by combining various Phrases from the Preset and
User Phrases as shown below.
MIDI tracks and Sample tracks
The Song/Pattern tracks (1 - 16) of the MOTIF are
divided into two groups: MIDI tracks and Sample
MIDI tracks
These are tracks in which the performance data (used
to play the internal Voices or Plug-in Voices) is
recorded as MIDI data. This is the same as sequence
tracks on a MIDI sequencer.
Sample tracks — with Sample Voices
Voices which are automatically created and stored
using the Sampling feature (page 58) in the sequencer
(Song/Pattern) mode, are referred to as “Sample
Voices.” tracks using these Sample Voices are referred
to as “Sample” tracks — to distinguish them from the
MIDI tracks.
Sample Voices are stored as original, dedicated Voices
for each Song or Style. This means that you cannot
take a Sample Voice belonging to one Song or Style and
use it in another Song or Style. For details on Sample
Voices and the Sampling function, see page 233.
