Installing the Software
This software enables you to connect devices compatible with the Yamaha Steinberg FW Driver to a computer and transfer audio/
MIDI signals via an IEEE1394 (FireWire) cable.
CAUTION
• Keep in mind that noise may be generated when installing or uninstalling AI Driver. Before performing either of these operations, make sure to
lower the output level of each device.
If you have already installed AI Driver (n Driver) or mLAN Driver/mLAN Tools on your computer:
Windows
Uninstall the driver software before installing the Yamaha Steinberg FW Driver.
For details of uninstalling, refer to page 20.
If you want to use mLAN devices with the same computer, you don’t need to uninstall the mLAN Driver/mLAN Tools.
NOTE
• If you are using mLAN Driver/mLAN Tools V1.6.2, update them to V1.6.3 (or higher) before installing the Yamaha Steinberg FW Driver. This is necessary because the Yamaha Steinberg FW Driver cannot work together with the mLAN Driver/
mLAN Tools V1.6.2 installed.
• When using the Yamaha Steinberg FW Driver, make sure to disable the mLAN Driver. If this is enabled (on), Yamaha
Steinberg FW Driver cannot work because the mLAN Driver uses the IEEE1394 interface.
• When using the mLAN Driver, make sure to turn off any devices compatible with the Yamaha Steinberg FW Driver or disconnect them from the computer before enabling the mLAN driver.
• Note that you may not need to disable the mLAN driver when the computer is equipped with multiple IEEE1394 interfaces and a device compatible with the Yamaha Steinberg FW Driver is connected to the different IEEE1394 interface
from the other used by the mLAN driver.
Mac
You don’t need to uninstall the driver software. If you want to uninstall, refer to page 21.
If you have not installed AI Driver (n Driver) or mLAN Driver/mLAN Tools on your computer;
Proceed to the installation of Yamaha Steinberg FW Driver.

Word Clock
1
2
In a typical digital audio system, the signal referred to as
“word clock” is used to synchronize the process timing of
audio signals between multiple devices. If the word clock
is not transferred correctly, click noise may occur or
recording may not be successful. Normally, one device
transmits a reference word clock signal, and the other
devices receive this word clock signal and synchronize to
it. The transmitting device is called the “word clock master” and the receiving devices are called “word clock
slaves”. Some devices compatible with Yamaha Steinberg
FW Driver can function as the word clock slave. Select the
word clock source of the word clock signal in the Clock
Source parameter.
1 Firmware Version
Setting the audio driver buffer size
Indicates the firmware version of the IEEE1394. Clicking
[Check for Updates] will call up the website from which you
can download the latest firmware program.
Noise produced when using applications such as DAW
software can affect audio recording and/or playback. In
most cases, you can solve these problems by adjusting
the audio buffer size. The buffer size can usually be
adjusted via the audio driver setup window in the application. (When using ASIO compatible software for Windows,
the buffer size can be adjusted in the ASIO Buffer Size
parameter via the Control Panel of the Yamaha Steinberg
FW Driver.) While the higher buffer size reduces load to
the computer CPU but produces latency (time lag) during
recording/playback, the smaller buffer size may result in
noise or the sound cutting off. Make sure to set the buffer
size to an appropriate value depending on the performance of your computer, the number of audio/MIDI tracks
being recorded/played back on the DAW software, the
number of plug-in software, and so on.

This operation lets you confirm which device is actually controlled from a computer when two or more devices are daisychain connected.

Using Multiple Devices Compatible with
Yamaha Steinberg FW Driver
Up to three devices compatible with Yamaha Steinberg FW
Driver can be used simultaneously. By connecting them in
daisy-chain fashion to a computer via IEEE1394 cables, you
can upgrade your music production system simply by adding
other devices.
IEEE1394 terminal
When connecting two or three devices compatible with
Yamaha Steinberg FW Driver to a computer, the order of
devices displayed in the DAW (Cubase etc.) will be maintained even if the power is turned off. The order of devices
will be reproduced when turning on the power of the connected devices. When the same two or three devices are
connected, a unique number (indicated at the end of the
device name) is automatically assigned to each of the
devices, in the order with which the devices are connected.
The number once assigned to a device will be maintained
even if it is disconnected or the power is turned off. If you
want to reset the order of devices displayed in DAW or the
number assignment, follow the instructions below.

MOTIF-RACK XS
NOTE
• Keep in mind that up to two devices can be connected
when the Sample Rate is set to 88.2 kHz or 96 kHz. Even if
you connect an additional third device, the last recognized
device (other than the device specified as the Word Clock
master) connected to the computer will not be available.
• Up to two MOTIF XF/XS series and MOTIF-RACK XS instruments can be connected regardless of the Sample Rate
settings.
• Even if multiple IEEE1394 interfaces are installed on the
computer, make sure to daisy-chain connect all devices to
the jacks of a single interface. This is necessary since the
computer can only recognize devices connected to a specific, single IEEE1394 interface jack, and cannot recognize
devices connected to different jacks of different IEEE1394
interfaces even though they are installed on the same computer.

FW Driver window, indicating that the computer has
actually recognized the first device.
Turn on the power of the second device that is
daisy-chain connected to the first device.
The tab corresponding to the second device appears
on the Control Panel of the Yamaha Steinberg FW
Driver window, indicating that the computer has recognized the second device. If a third device has been
connected to this second device, turn the power on in
the same manner. As necessary, set the “WORD
