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.
CAUTION • 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.

Getting Started
Overview of Studio Manager and Recall
Studio Manager is a cross-platform application that enables you use multiple Editor programs for remotely
controlling Yamaha hardware from your computer, and allows you to save the Editor settings for instant recall.
You can run Studio Manager as a stand-alone application, or as a plug-in within DAW (digital audio workstation)/
sequencer applications that are compatible with Studio Connections, such as Cubase SX 3 or later. In either case,
the basic functionality is the same. For the latest information on compatible DAW applications, refer to the following
website.

The settings of each editor can be saved and recalled together from Studio Manager or the DAW application. In
other words, you can change the settings of your entire system in a single operation by recalling the settings for
multiple devices from Studio Manager or your DAW application. This capability is referred to as “Recall.”
When you want to save setting files, you can do this from Studio Manager to recall multiple devices at once, or from
an individual Editor to recall only a specific device. When you save your settings in your DAW application, the
Studio Manager settings will also be saved together with the DAW application file, and can also be recalled in the
same way.

Starting and setting up Studio Manager
You’ll need to perform the following setup in order to use the editors in Studio Manager.
1
Start up Studio Manager.
• When starting from a DAW compatible with Studio Connections:
For details, refer to your DAW owner’s manual.
The following procedure applies to Cubase 4.
From Cubase 4's [Device] menu, choose [Yamaha Studio Manager] to open the Studio Manager window.
• When starting as a stand-alone application:
Windows: Click the [Start] button, place your mouse cursor over [Programs (All Programs)] → [YAMAHA
Studio Manager], then click [Studio Manager].
Mac OS X: Open folders in the order of “Applications” → “YAMAHA” → “Studio Manager,” and double-click
“SM2.”
2
If the MOTIF-RACK XS Editor icon isn't displayed on the workspace of the Studio Manager window,
add the MOTIF-RACK XS Editor to the Studio Manager workspace.
Select [File] menu → [Setup] → “Modify Workspace”, then select “MOTIF-RACK XS” in the “Device Editor” of
the “Add Device” and click [Add →]. Make sure that “MOTIF-RACK XS” is listed in the “Workspace” column,
then click [OK].
n If the MOTIF-RACK XS Editor is installed with the box next to “Add the Editor to the Studio Manager Workspace” checkmarked, the
MOTIF-RACK XS Editor icon is automatically added to the workspace of the Studio Manager window when Studio Manager is
started.
3
Set the MIDI Ports.
When starting Studio Manager as a plug-in of the DAW application:
Set the MIDI Ports on the DAW application. For details, refer to the manual of the DAW application.
n When using Cubase 4, the MIDI Ports are automatically set simply by starting Studio Manager from Cubase 4. However, when using
Cubase via an IEEE1394 cable, you will need to install “Extensions for Steinberg DAW” to the computer in order for the MIDI Ports to
be set automatically. The Extension Module can be downloaded from the following website address:
http://www.yamahasynth.com/download/
When starting Studio Manager as a stand-alone application:
Set the MIDI Ports by calling up the MIDI Ports window via [MIDI Ports]/[MIDI Settings]. When using a USB
connection, enter checkmarks to the boxes of Ports 1 and 4 for the MOTIF-RACK XS for both the Input Ports and
the Output Ports. When using an IEEE1394 connection, enter checkmarks to the boxes of mLAN Port 1 (“mLAN
MIDI In”/“mLAN MIDI Out”) for both the Input Ports and the Output Ports.

Troubleshooting
When starting the MOTIF-RACK XS Editor after the installation and controlling the MOTIF-RACK
XS from your computer via a USB or IEEE1394 cable, the MOTIF-RACK XS does not operate
correctly.
• Did you install the latest USB-MIDI Driver/AI Driver?..................................................................................... page 5
• Is the USB or IEEE1394 cable used to connect the MOTIF-RACK XS to your computer connected correctly?
................................................................................................................................................. MOTIF-RACK XS Owner’s Manual
• If your computer has automatically activated any power-saving mode (such as suspended, sleep, standby) when
you make a USB or IEEE1394 connection, the computer may “freeze,” or the driver may stop working. When using
a USB or IEEE1394 cable, disable any power-saving mode on the computer.
• Confirm whether or not a proper USB or IEEE1394 cable is used.
If the USB or IEEE1394 cable is broken or damaged, have the USB or IEEE1394 cable replaced with a known
working one.
• Do not use a USB or IEEE1394 hub for connecting multiple USB or IEEE1394 devices.
Screen redrawing is slow or stopped.
• Does your computer satisfy the system requirements? ................................................................................. page 4
• Is any other application or device driver running?
Quit the device driver or any unnecessary applications before operating the MOTIF-RACK XS Editor.
