What is the Multi Part Editor?
Multi Part Editor is a convenient way to edit and save the Multi parameters of your MOTIF-RACK.
Thanks to its the easy-to-understand graphical interface, you can edit virtually all of the Multi
parameters of the MOTIF-RACK 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 to your Multis can be saved to your computer.
The Multi Part Editor can also be used in connection with devices such as the Yamaha 01X Digital Mixing
Studio or MOTIF ES Music Production Sythesizer, allowing you to operate the Multi Part Editor using real
hardware controls.
You can use this Multi Part Editor as a plug-in for the software below.

About Studio Manager
Studio Manager is a cross-platform application that enables you to start multiple Editors for
controlling YAMAHA hardware products remotely, and to save multiple Editor settings.
For more information, refer to the separate Installation Guide or the Studio Manager PDF manual.
What is Total Recall?
You can save and recall each Editor’s settings in Studio Manager. This enables you to recall all the
settings of multiple devices from Studio Manager and control the entire system using simple
operations. This capability is called the “Total Recall” function.
Also, if you are saving the setup files or trying to synchronize multiple devices, you can recall all
the settings for multiple devices using Studio Manager. Alternatively, you can recall the settings
only for a certain device using the Editor of the corresponding device.
For more information, refer to the Studio Manager PDF manual.
Right-click the MOTIF-RACK Multi Part Editor icon in the Studio Manager window. Select “Configure Total Recall,” then select the data to be recalled. The data that can be selected differs depending on the Editor.
The following data types can be selected in the MOTIF-RACK Multi Part Editor.
•

•
All.............................................. Multi, Normal User 1, 2, and Drum User Voice data

Drum User Voice....................... Drum User Voice data
(You can select multiple data simultaneously from the Multi, Normal User 1, 2, and Drum User
Voices.)
n When checking [From Hardware] from the [Synchronize] menu → [Total Recall], the Solo/Mute data will not
be recalled.

Multi Part Editor Files
Every Multi in the MOTIF-RACK can be made up of voices selected from the collection of User
Voices stored in the MOTIF-RACK. When a voice is modified, each Multi that utilizes that voice will
be modified as well and as a result, your Multis may not sound the way they did when you first
made them. This is why Multi Part Editor files contain not only Multi data (pan, volume, effects and
mixer settings, etc.) but User Voice data as well, ensuring that the voices which were used when
the Multi was made can be saved and recalled.
For example, let’s say you want to play a Multi, but you’ve edited or even overwritten some of the
voices it uses. In this case, if you saved the Multi using Multi Part Editor, you can simply send the
User Voice data from Multi Part Editor back to the MOTIF-RACK (page 32). The Multi will sound
just as it did when you saved it.
n When transmitting the User Voice data of the Multi Part Editor to the MOTIF-RACK, the User Voice data
saved in the MOTIF-RACK will be lost.

About Open Plug-in Technology
Open Plug-in Technology (OPT) is a new software format that enables you to control MIDI devices
from a music DAW application software. For example, this allows you to start up and operate
various parts of your music system, such as plug-in board editors, and mixing control editors directly from an OPT-compatible sequencer, without having to use each separately. OPT also
makes it unnecessary to set MIDI drivers for each application, streamlining your music production
system and making all operations more convenient and seamless.
In addition to the original OPT, there is also Open Plug-in Technology Version 2 (OPT 2), designed
for use with the Total Recall software. Studio Manager is a host application that supports OPT 2.
About the OPT Levels and Overview
The host application and its compatibility with OPT is divided into three levels, as shown below.
Level 1
OPT Panels provides basic support for opening and displaying OPT control panels
that can transmit data via the client’s external MIDI ports. Typically this will allow
basic hardware editor control panels to operate properly.
Level 2
OPT Processors provides support for real-time MIDI processors and panel automation.
Typically this will allow both real-time and offline MIDI effects to operate properly and
supply automation to OPT panels.
Level 3
OPT Views provides support for edit views and MIDI processors/panels that require
direct access to client program storage structures. Typically this will allow sophisticated MIDI edit views to be supported.

All operations of the MOTIF-RACK Multi Part Editor can be utilized when running as a plug-in
within Level 2 (Processors) and Level 3 (Views) host applications. Bulk data reception and
remote control are not supported when running within Level 1 (Panels) host applications.
n Certain operations may not work as expected if there is no corresponding function in the host
application. The highest level of implementation for the host application is indicated by the OPT logo
which appears along with the version information in the application.
About the OPT 2 Overview
OPT 2 is a plug-in format that enhances OPT Level 1 (Panels)
and adds some convenient functions for use with Total Recall.
In addition to doing Total Recall functions using the Studio
Manager as a host application, you can use Total Recall in a
DAW application (provided it is compatible with Total Recall),
via the Studio Manager.

An Example of the Multi Part
Editor in Use
There is no single way to use the many components of the Multi Part Editor. Your editing needs
and preferences may differ; however, the following example gives you a simple step-by-step guide
in how to use the Multi Part Editor. The Part Mixer window is the first window to open, so that’s
where the explanation begins.
n Before using the Multi Part Editor, you need to set the mode of the MOTIF-RACK to the Multi mode.
1. Click “Setup” under “Setup” in the menu bar to open the Setup dialog.
Configure the parameters in this window to enable communication between Multi Part Editor and MOTIF-RACK. For further information, see page 31.
n When using DAW software that is incompatible with OPT or Total Recall:
When starting the Studio Manager as a stand-alone application and using it simultaneously with
sequencer software, open the MIDI-USB Driver dialog and merge (join) the MIDI ports of the sequencer
software with the MIDI ports of the Multi Part Editor (page 9).
2. Transfer the desired User Voices from the MOTIF-RACK (page 33) or open a Voice Editor
file (page 17) with the Multi Part Editor.
n Once User Voices are updated in the Multi Part Editor, they can be used the next time Multi Part Editor
is started. If new voices are created or edited with the MOTIF-RACK or Voice Editor, the user voices
must again be updated by transferring them from the MOTIF-RACK or opening a Voice Editor file.
n If you don’t intend to use User Voices in the Multi, you can skip this step.
3. Transfer the desired Multi from the MOTIF-RACK into the Multi Part Editor. For more information, see “Receive Multi Bulk” on page 19.
n If you intend to use a default Multi, you can skip this step. In this case, transmit the Multi (page 18) in
order to synchronize the data in the Multi Part Editor and MOTIF-RACK.
(1) Select the Multi data you want to send to the Multi Part Editor on the MOTIF-RACK.
(2) Select “Receive Multi Bulk” under “Setup” in the menu bar.
4. Select a voice for each part.
(1) Click on the voice name or bank name for each part to display the “Voice List”.
(2) Select the voice you want to assign to the part.
5. Set parameters for each part in the Part Mixer window.
Click the [DETAIL] button for each part and for the Common Section to make further settings.
6. Save your edited data by clicking the [Save] button in the toolbar.
You can save a Multi for each of your songs. When you want to play a song, open the Multi
Part Editor file (*.M5E) corresponding to the song. It will automatically be transmitted to the
MOTIF-RACK. No further settings are necessary.
Additionally, when running Multi Part Editor as a plug-in under a OPT-compatible host application such as SQ01, you can save your Multi Part Editor data as part of the host application’s song data.
•
•
When starting the Multi Part Editor from the Studio Manager, you can save the Multi Part Editor
data into the Session file of Studio Manager.
When using DAW (digital audio workstation) software compatible with Total Recall and the Studio
Manager together, the Multi Part Editor data will be saved into the Project file (Song file) of the
DAW.
7
Notice when starting the Studio Manager as a stand-alone application
When starting the Studio Manager as a stand-alone application, you’ll also need to have the
sequencer running simultaneously so that you can check the Part or Voice sounds edited in the
Multi Part Editor or Voice Editor by using an external keyboard.
As shown in the example below, set the MIDI through function (echo setting) of the sequencer to
direct the MIDI messages from an external keyboard to the MOTIF-RACK.

Troubleshooting
If you encounter problems such as no sound output or abnormal behavior, verify the connections
before checking the following.
Sound does not change when using the knobs or sliders.
• Are the MIDI Out port and Device Number set correctly in the “Setup dialog”? (page 31)
Bulk data is not transmitted.
• Are the MIDI Out port and Device Number set correctly in the “Setup dialog”? (page 31)
• Is the Dump Interval in the “Setup dialog” too short? Make sure to adjust the Dump Interval.
Bulk data is not received. Time-out errors are frequent.
• Are the MIDI Out port and Device number set correctly in the “Setup dialog”? (page 31)
• Depending on the host application, you may need to turn MIDI Thru setting off in the host
application.
• When running the Multi Part Editor as an SQ01 plug-in, reduce the buffer size in SQ01
under [Setup] menu → [MIDI] → [System Exclusive] → Receive Buffer Size.
The MIDI In/Out port is not available in the “Setup dialog”.
• Only MIDI Ports selected in the host applications MIDI Setup can be selected in the “Setup
dialog”. Confirm the ports selected in the host application.
Remote operation functions don’t work.
• Is the remote output port set correctly in the “Setup dialog”? (page 31)
• Is the remote operation device configured correctly? When using the 01X as a remote operation device, make sure the REMOTE and MIDI buttons are on.
Parts using User Voices do not sound correctly.
• Has the User Voice data been transmitted to the MOTIF-RACK? (page 32)
By transmitting the Multi settings, you can play the MOTIF-RACK with the newly transmitted
voice data.
Noise is audible during remote operation
For Windows XP users:
• The condition may improve if you enable Hyper-Threading in the BIOS settings.
For information on how to enable Hyper-Threading, refer to the owner’s manual of your
computer.
