98 and Macintosh system. However, the basic operation of the screen is the same. The
following section explains how to operate the MIDI Patch screen in Windows 98.
[Windows 98]
1. Double-click “Control Panel” in the “My Computer” folder.
2. Double-click “MIDI-USB Driver” to display the screen.
[Macintosh]
Select “Control Panels” from the Apple menu, then select “YAMAHA USB MIDI
Patch” to display the screen.
25
Changing the driver setting (MIDI Patch Screen)
• Changing the device number
If you are using multiple UX256s, you can change the device number.
Click “Device Name.” The System displays the drop-down list. Select the device for
which you wish to change the setting.
NOTE
If you are using a Macintosh computer, the device number is assigned
sequentially, such as “USB1,” “USB2,” etc., as the Device Name.
• Checking the signal path
To see if the MIDI device is connected correctly, you can try transmitting MIDI signals.
• Note Off Message
When you click [Send All Note OFF], a MIDI All Note Off message will be sent to all
ports on the UX256.
• Note On Message
When you click [Send All Note On], a MIDI All Note On message will be sent to all
ports on the UX256.
26
Changing the driver setting (MIDI Patch Screen)
• Changing the connection during playback (PC OUT → MIDI
OUT)
You can change the I/O assignment of the computer’s output port and the UX256’s
output port. The left column shows the computer’s output ports (OUT 1-16), and the
top column shows the UX256’s output ports (1-16). With the default settings, ports
with the same number are connected to each other. However, you can change this
setting by checking the check boxes.
If you check multiple check boxes vertically, MIDI signals from multiple output ports
on the computer are merged and transmitted to one output port on the UX256. If you
check multiple check boxes horizontally, a MIDI signal from one output port on the
computer is distributed to multiple output ports on the UX256.
NOTE
See page 24 for more information on the relationship between the UX256’s
I/O ports and the port numbers.
• Routing MIDI signals from the computer’s output ports 1, 2, and
3 to MIDI OUT 1 on the UX256
Check the check boxes as shown on the
right, and click [OK] to enable the setting.
27
Changing the driver setting (MIDI Patch Screen)
• Changing the connection during recording (MIDI IN → PC IN)
You can change the I/O assignment of the computer’s input port and the UX256’s
input port. The left column shows the computer’s input ports (IN 1-8), and the top
column shows the UX256’s input ports (1-8). With the default settings, ports with the
same number are connected to each other. However, you can change this setting by
checking the check boxes.
If you check multiple check boxes vertically, a MIDI signal from one input port on the
UX256 is distributed to multiple input ports on the computer. If you check multiple
check boxes horizontally, MIDI signals from multiple input ports on the UX256 are
merged and transmitted to one input port on the computer.
NOTE
See page 24 for more information on the relationship between the UX256’s
I/O ports and the port numbers.
• Routing MIDI signals from MIDI IN 2, 3, and 4 on the UX256 to
the computer’s input port 1
Check the check boxes as shown on the
right, and click [OK] to enable the setting.
28
Changing the driver setting (MIDI Patch Screen)
• THRU output of MIDI signals (MIDI IN → MIDI OUT)
You can route MIDI signals received at the input port(s) of the UX256 directly to the
output port(s) of the UX256 (this is called THRU output). This routing is useful when
you wish to route MIDI signals from a MIDI keyboard directly to a tone generator. The
left column shows the UX256’s output ports (1-16), and the top column shows the
UX256’s input ports (1-8). To enable this function, check the “Thru ON/OFF” check
box in the lower right corner of the screen.
If you check multiple check boxes vertically, a MIDI signal from one input port on the
UX256 is distributed to multiple output ports on the UX256. If you check multiple
check boxes horizontally, MIDI signals from multiple input ports on the UX256 are
merged and transmitted to one output port on the UX256.
NOTE
• See page 24 for more information on the relationship between the
UX256’s I/O ports and the port numbers.
• For Macintosh, this function is valid only when the MIDI Patch screen or
sequence software is running.
• Routing MIDI signals directly from MIDI IN 2 to MIDI OUT 3
First check the “Thru ON/OFF” check
boxes on the lower right corner of the
screen. Then check the check box as
shown on the right, and click [OK] to
enable the setting.
