Sun Jun 16, 4: At this point, my tutoial may be more confusing to you than helpful because Logic X’s Library functions and appears somewhat differently than L8 and L9 which the tutorial was written for. Setup 3 is for simply playing the Motif and triggering either software instruments or external midi tracks in Logic X. You monitor via a “virtual” audio lane which allows you to process the signal with plug-in effects prior to rendering the signal as a permanent real audio track. Thank you for your responses.

I was firrwire to finally get the information and get everything configured. If you are going to record the XS’ audio, it’s a no brainer for me: I do not know if I have a PCI card in my laptop.

Typically the FW16E would match better with Cubase 6. Yes it makes a difference in terms of the options you have to process the signal. I understand that a USB cable is a one-way data connection and that a firewire connection is a two-way connection and is able to send data both ways at the same time.
Hello, I have a couple of questions about the firewire expansion board for my Motif xf8. I would like to edit multiple tracks. It may at times be convenient for you to isolate a PART on its own bus, or you may decide to send several PARTS together on flrewire specific bus – the goal so you can record them to their own track. Setup 2 is to sync the sequencer, Setup 4 is for recording the Motifs Arps. I just cannot figure out how to mtoif it. If that is your goal, you do not need to get the FW16E.

Or since that USB and firewire use different speeds, will it not work? Will only a firewire cable and firewire expansion board do this? Thank you for your responses. That said, the tutorial is available on the Motifator site.
You route signal from the Motif XF either one way or the other but a single source can never be routed simultaneously via both. I own a Toshiba Qoismo X I am trying to get this same configuration setup on my iMac. Will this work as my firewire connection on my laptop?
Create number of desired tracks. You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post. Confirm this, by clicking OK. I’m very close to having this properly setup, but I want to confirm the way I have it set up is the best and efficient way to configure this and get the midi issue correct.
Download the most recent versions of any drivers, software or XF Operating System updates However, when you are working with an external DAW, like Cubase for example, you may want to assign Parts to their own discreet audio bus.
Even if you are using the light version of Cubase AI you can route 8 simultaneous stereo sends from the XF to your computer. Or is there a way via the USB connection?
It depends on your goal. Just remember, these were made a few years ago. Thank you for your reply and your time. Correct me if I am wrong.

I will have to get back to you once I get to the office don’t keep the XS at home. Oddly, in my case at least, the MIDI channels have to be set for each resultant plug-in track.
Also, you are saying I should, for the best compatibility, get a newer cirewire of Cubase such as 6 or 7? First, here are two pics of my XS’ Utility screen and proper settings.
