Precautions when using the USB TO HOST connector
When connecting the computer to the USB TO HOST connector, make sure to observe the following points. Failing to do so
risks freezing the computer and corrupting or even losing the data. If the computer or the instrument freezes, turn the power
to the instrument off or restart the computer.
NOTICE
• Before connecting the computer to the USB TO HOST connector, exit from any power-saving mode (such
as suspended, sleep, standby) of the computer.
• Before turning on the power to the instrument, connect the computer to the USB TO HOST connector.
• Execute the following before turning the power to the instrument on/off or plugging/unplugging the USB
cable to/from the USB TO HOST connector.
- Quit any open applications.
- Make sure that data is not being transmitted from the instrument. (Data is transmitted only by playing
notes on the keyboard or playing back a song.)
• While a USB device is connected to the instrument, you should wait for six seconds or more between these
operations: (1) when turning the power of the instrument off then on again, or (2) when alternately
connecting/disconnecting the USB cable.
MOXF6/MOXF8 Editor
MOXF6/MOXF8 Editor is a convenient tool which lets you edit and save the various parameters of your MOXF6/
MOXF8 synthesizer. These include Common/Part Mixing parameters (edited in the Song or Pattern mode of the
MOXF6/MOXF8) such as Volume, Pan, EG, and Cutoff, as well as parameters of a Voices assigned to each Part
(edited in the Voice mode of the MOXF6/MOXF8). Thanks to the easy-to-understand graphical interface, you can
edit various parameters of the MOXF6/MOXF8 right from your computer—using the mouse to adjust the virtual
knobs, sliders, and buttons and entering values from the computer keyboard. Finally, all the changes you have
made can be saved to your computer or transmitted to the MOXF6/MOXF8 instrument.
The MOXF6/MOXF8 Editor, based on the “VST3 technology” by Steinberg, works as a VST3 plug-in with the
Cubase series. The MOXF6/MOXF8 Editor also works as the same way as other VST instrument software, allowing
you to save the edited settings of the MOXF6/MOXF8, or use them for another project. In addition, you can handle
the MOXF6/MOXF8 Voices in the Media Bay window in Cubase when using the MOXF6/MOXF8 Editor with Cubase,
allowing you to search for, listen, and play the MOXF6/MOXF8 Voices within Media Bay in Cubase series. The
MOXF6/MOXF8 Editor provides a comprehensive and seamless music production environment—making the use of
hardware and software both easier and much more efficient.
And, the MOXF6/MOXF8 Editor can also be used as a stand-alone application.
Installing the Software
The actual installation steps and the use of the software itself differs depending on the operating system that you
are using. Please refer to the appropriate installation instructions.
