About MOTIF XS Extension/MOTIF-RACK XS Extension
“MOTIF XS Extension/MOTIF-RACK XS Extension (Extension)” is a set of program plug-ins and project templates developed by
Yamaha to enhance the functions of Steinberg DAW software. Simply by installing Extension and connecting the MOTIF XS series
(MOTIF XS6/7/8 and MOTIF-RACK XS) to your computer via an IEEE1394 cable, you can take advantage of various features which
enable you to link the Steinberg DAW such as Cubase with the MOTIF XS series.
This manual covers situations when connecting the MOTIF XS series to a computer to which Cubase series software and Extension have
already been installed. Keep in mind that you will need a USB storage device or you will need to connect the MOTIF XS to a computer
via ETHERNET when using the Song Import feature.
NOTE
• The optional mLAN16E2 should be installed to the MOTIF XS6, MOTIF XS7 or MOTIF-RACK XS when using the features (except for “Song
Import”) enabled by installing Extension. This manual assumes that the mLAN16E2 has been already installed to the MOTIF XS6, MOTIF XS7 or
MOTIF-RACK XS.
• The required version of Cubase differs depending on the Extension version you are using. For details about system requirements for the Extension,
refer to the following website or the release note included with the Extension you are using.
http://www.yamahasynth.com/downloads/
• The version of Cubase 4 sh 0Q ould be 4.5.2 or higher for using the Song Import feature.
What Extension can do

■ Auto settings of Remote Device
With MOTIF XS Extension installed, the MOTIF XS connected
to a computer via an IEEE1394 cable will be registered as the
Remote Device of Cubase. Also, the detailed settings such as
MIDI Ports will be set automatically. You can confirm these
points by selecting [Devices] → [Device Setup] to call up the
Device Setup dialog box.
For details about function assignments, refer to the Owner’s
Manual and Data List 2 of the MOTIF XS.
The MOTIF-RACK XS cannot be set as a Remote Device.
■ Project templates with Input/
Output Bus settings
With Extension installed, convenient Project templates for the
MOTIF XS and MOTIF-RACK XS will be installed to Cubase.
Each of these templates includes the appropriate settings for the
Input/Output buses of the VST Connection, meaning that you
can start multi-channel recording or AD input recording
smoothly by selecting one of the templates to create a new
Project, without having to set Audio Ports and Buses manually.
NOTE
• Set the AD Output of the MOTIF XS series to “m13&14” by using
the Editor or instrument so that the setup of the Project Template is
equivalent to the setup of the MOTIF XS.
• Selecting a different Project Template will overwrite the current settings of the Input/Output buses.
The Remote Device name shown in Cubase and the MIDI Port
name are as follows:
Remote Device name
: Yamaha MOTIF XS
MIDI In and Out Port name : MOTIF XS6/7/8 Remote
NOTE
• Even if the MIDI Port is changed, it will be reset to the above one
when Cubase is restarted.
• The Remote Control function is available also when the MOTIF XS
is connected to a computer via a USB cable. In this case, click [+]
from the Device Setup window to call up the Device List, and then
select “Yamaha MOTIF XS6/7/8.” You will also need to set the MIDI
Ports manually in this case.

■ Song import from MOTIF XS6/7/8
5
From the “Import Options” dialog box, select the
song and track(s) to be imported, then click [OK].
With MOTIF XS Extension installed, Song data recorded to the
tracks of the MOTIF XS6/7/8 can be imported to a Project in
Cubase on your computer. Keep in mind that audio data included
in the song as well as MIDI events can be imported while the
Mixing setup cannot be imported. Song data of the MOTIFRACK XS can not be imported.
Follow the instructions below:
1
In the File mode of the MOTIF XS, save all user data
created on the MOTIF XS (with the File Type set to
“All”) to the USB storage device connected to the
USB TO DEVICE connector. Next, remove the USB
storage device from the MOTIF XS, and then insert
it to the USB connector of the computer.
The file with the extension “.X0A” will be saved to the USB
storage device.
If the MOTIF XS and your computer are connected to the
same Ethernet network, you can save the data (the file with
the extension “.X0A”) to the hard disk drive of your computer.
2
On your computer, select [File] → [Import] →
[MOTIF XS Song...].
The “Import MOTIF XS Song” dialog box appears.
3
From the “Import MOTIF XS Song” dialog box,
select the file saved in step 1 above, and then click
[Open].
The “Select directory” dialog box appears.

From the “Select directory” dialog box, select the
destination folder to which the project file of
Cubase is to be saved, then click [OK].
The “Import Options” dialog box appears.
Select the song to be imported from the pull-down menu at the
top of this dialog box, then select the specific tracks of the
selected song. If you want to import the entire song, click [Select
All Tracks]. After selecting a song and tracks, click [OK] to execute the actual Import operation. After completing the Import
operation, each track data of the selected song will be imported

How the MOTIF XS song is to be imported
Troubleshooting
About the imported file and project
• Keep in mind that only the “All” type (file extension: X0A) can be
imported to a Cubase project.
• The sample rate of the project created via the Song Import will be
set to 44.1 kHz, meaning that the Sample Voice created on the
MOTIF XS via a sample rate other than 44.1 kHz will not play via
the correct pitch in the Cubase project. If you want to import a song
with a Sample Voice, make sure to set the sample rate to 44.1 kHz
before performing the Sampling operation.
About MIDI Tracks
• The MIDI tracks in the MOTIF XS song will be imported to a
project as MIDI tracks. Each track of the project will be assigned
the same MIDI Transmit Channel as that on the original MOTIF
XS song.
• The track using Voices that contains User Waveforms obtained in
the Voice/Performance mode via the Sampling function is imported
as a MIDI track. In other words, the track which does not use a
Sample Voice will be imported as a MIDI track.
• The Mixing setup of the MOTIF XS song will not be imported,
resulting that the Volume and Pan of each MIDI track are set to
“Off” when the song is imported.
About Audio Tracks
■ Cannot control Cubase from the MOTIF
XS panel
• Make sure that the MOTIF XS is properly connected to the
computer via an IEEE1394 cable.
• Confirm the version of Cubase installed to your computer.
The required version of Cubase differs depending on the
Extension version you are using. For details about system
requirements for the Extension, refer to the following website or the release note included with the Extension you are
using.
http://www.yamahasynth.com/downloads/
• Confirm whether or not “Yamaha MOTIF XS” is registered
as a Remote Device and “MOTIF XS Remote” has been
selected as the MIDI In/Out Port from the Device Setup window called via [Devices] → [Device Setup].
• The Audio track (including the Program Change which specifies
the Sample Voice) in the MOTIF XS song will be imported to a
project as the Audio track.
• The Mixing setup will not be imported, resulting that all the Volume values are set to 0 dB, all the Pan values are set to “C” and all
the EQ shapes are reset to flat in the Audio track when the song is
imported.
• Among all the Samples comprising a Waveform assigned to a Sample Voice used by the MOTIF XS song, only the Samples of the
Key Bank including the note number recorded to the track will be
imported to a Project when the box of “Import all Media Files” is
not checked. If you want to import all the Samples, check the box
“Import all Media Files.”
■ Cannot find the Project Templates
Others
■ Cannot import a MOTIF XS song
• The Song Import function supports only the data recorded to each
track of the MOTIF XS song. Note that the Mixing setup will not
be imported to a Cubase project. If you want to apply the Mixing
setup to the MOTIF XS, use the MOTIF XS Editor within Cubase.
Start Studio Manager, followed by the MOTIF XS Editor within
Cubase. Next, open the “All” type file (extension: .X0A), select the
song same as that selected when executing the Song Import, and
then execute the Sync function.
• The Song Import function does not support Pattern data and Arpeggio data.
• Song data imported to a Project cannot be exported back to the
MOTIF XS.
• Confirm whether or not Extension has been installed properly.
• The Project Template files will be installed to the following
path.
Windows:
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Steinberg\Project Templates
Mac:
/Library/Application Support/Steinberg/Project Templates
• Make sure to use Cubase of version 5.1.1 or higher.
• If you cannot select a song from the “Import Options” dialog
box or you find the imported song does not have any data,
the file of “All” type may be saved without storing the
recorded song on the MOTIF XS. Make sure to store the
recorded song on the MOTIF XS before performing the Save
operation.
