MOTIF Quick Start Guide
Using as a Master Keyboard
Quick Start Guide
Master Keyboard settings
Layer/Split settings using an external tone generator
The MOTIF can function as a comprehensive, versatile master keyboard, for both live and studio applications.
When a Master is set to the Voice or Performance mode, you can make settings for four independent Zones. This
makes it possible to control voices of an external MIDI device over several different channels — in addition to the
internal voices of the MOTIF itself. You can do this by setting the sound range of the keyboard for each Zone and
assigning different MIDI channels to each range.
For example, this lets you layer several voices together, including those of a connected MIDI tone generator. Plus,
you can separate the voices into different keyboard ranges, and play completely different sounds with your left and
right hands. In the example below, we’ll set up three Zones as shown below. We’ll program a split at the note C3. In
the lower range (B2 and lower), a bass voice and cymbal voice will sound. In the upper range (C3 and above), we’ll
layer piano and vibraphone voices — played from an external MIDI tone generator. Using this sophisticated setup,
you can easily sound like an entire jazz group, with just your two hands.
In the example instructions here, we’ll use the Voice mode for the Master.
