What is the MOTIF-RACK XS Editor?
What is the MOTIF-RACK XS Editor?
MOTIF-RACK XS Editor is a convenient tool which lets you edit and save the various parameters of your
MOTIF-RACK XS tone generator. These include Voice and Mixing parameters (edited in the Voice or Multi
mode of the MOTIF-RACK XS) such as Volume, Pan, EG, and Cutoff and other settings. Thanks to its easy-tounderstand graphical interface, you can edit various parameters of the MOTIF-RACK XS 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 can be saved to your computer or transmitted to
the MOTIF-RACK XS instrument.
You can use this MOTIF-RACK XS Editor as a plug-in for the software below
• Studio Manager
• DAW application software compatible with Studio Connections
Studio Manager
Studio Manager V2 is a cross-platform application that enables you to start multiple Editors for controlling
Yamaha hardware products remotely, and to save multiple Editor settings. You can run Studio Manager as a
stand-alone application, or as a plug-in within DAW applications compatible with Studio Connections such
as Cubase 4 or Cubase AI 4.
For more information, refer to the Studio Manager PDF manual.
Studio Connections
Studio Connections is a joint project begun by Steinberg and Yamaha. Music
production systems now increasingly rely on both software and hardware, and there
is a pressing need for closer integration between the two. Studio Connections
provides a comprehensive and seamless music production environment—making the
use of hardware and software both easier and much more efficient. The following
functions are available in Studio Connections.
Recall
With the Recall function, all settings in each Editor can be saved within Studio Manager, and then called up
again when needed. This enables you to recall all the settings of multiple devices from Studio Manager and
control the entire system easily, instantly and automatically.
When executing the Recall function in the Studio Manager, the parameter settings of either device (MOTIF-RACK XS or DAW
software on a computer) are synchronized with the other. You can determine which device (MOTIF-RACK XS or DAW software) is
regarded as the master of the parameter settings by setting the Auto Sync Setting (page 41).
Recall is especially convenient when used with a DAW application compatible with Studio Connections. This
lets you save the Editor data directly to the project file of the DAW letting you recall all necessary hardware
settings automatically by simply opening the project file.

About Open Plug-in Technology
Audio Integration
Plug-in software such as software synthesizers and software samplers are exceptionally convenient in that
they let you easily change the various settings and parameters within the host application. However, control
over hardware is not so easy—with the need for various setups such as audio connections, driver settings
and MIDI port connections.
By using a Studio Connections-compatible DAW software, you can control the external hardware synthesizer
within the application, without the need to set up complex connections within a DAW software application—
just as easily and conveniently as you would with plug-in software. The Audio Integration function makes all
this possible. For details about Recall and Audio Integration, visit our web site at:
http://www.studioconnections.org/
About Open Plug-in Technology
Open Plug-in Technology (OPT) is a 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 voice editors of the synthesizer and mixing control editors—directly from an OPT-compatible
software, 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, Open Plug-in Technology Version 2 (OPT 2), designed for Studio Connections,
is also available. The host application Studio Manager supports OPT 2.
About the OPT 2 Overview
OPT 2 is a plug-in format that enhances OPT Level 1 (Panels) and adds some convenient
functions for Studio Connections.

Data Structure of the MOTIF-RACK XS Editor
Data Structure of the MOTIF-RACK XS Editor
Unlike the MOTIF-RACK XS instrument, the MOTIF-RACK XS Editor lets you edit Voice and Multi parameters with
an easy-to-understand graphical interface. The editing performance on the MOTIF-RACK XS Editor is basically the
same as that on the MOTIF-RACK XS instrument with the exception of the following points.
• The MOTIF-RACK XS Editor handles all the Voice parameters including the Element parameters while the MOTIFRACK XS instrument handles only the Common parameters. This allows you to use the MOTIF-RACK XS Editor to edit
more detailed parameters than you can on the MOTIF-RACK XS instrument.
• The MOTIF-RACK XS Editor has the advantage of letting you edit Voices in the Multi mode—something that cannot be
done on the tone generator itself. A Voice edited in the Multi mode can be stored as a Mixing Voice or a User Voice.
• The MOTIF-RACK XS Editor handles the Global data which includes the part of the Utility parameters (shown in the
HARDWARE UTILITY window called up via [File] → [Hardware Utility]) and the parameters shown on the “G” row in the
Mixer section.
The diagram illustrated below indicates the structure of the data created via the MOTIF-RACK XS Editor, the
structure of the data stored in the internal memory of the MOTIF-RACK XS instrument and the relationship between
those two types of data.

*1 When the MOTIF-RACK XS instrument is connected to the computer properly with the ONLINE status, editing a parameter on the MOTIF-RACK XS Editor affects the same parameter
on the MOTIF-RACK XS itself, and vice versa.
*2 The Store Voice operation on the Editor will store the Voice data to the memory of the MOTIF-RACK XS instrument as well as the memory of the Editor.
*3 The Store Global operation and Store Mixing operation will store the data only to the memory of the MOTIF-RACK XS instrument.
As illustrated above, the MOTIF-RACK XS Editor lets you save the current settings of all the parameters as well as
the User Voice data and Mixing Voice data consisting of the same Voice Banks as those of the MOTIF-RACK XS
instrument to a single file. Because the current settings of all the parameters are saved to the file even if they were
not stored as a User Voice or Mixing Voice, you can recall the last editing status simply by starting the MOTIFRACK XS Editor.

Starting the MOTIF-RACK XS Editor
Starting the MOTIF-RACK XS Editor
Install the driver (USB-MIDI driver or AI driver), Studio Manager and MOTIF-RACK XS Editor by following the
respective Installation Guides, then install the host application such as Cubase if necessary. After making
the required connection and setting the MIDI IN/OUT parameter to “USB” or “mLAN” in the Utility mode,
follow the instructions below to start the MOTIF-RACK XS Editor.
n For details about connection between the MOTIF-RACK XS and a computer, refer to the Owner’s Manual of the MOTIFRACK XS.
1. Start the Studio Manager.
Studio Manager can be started as a plug-in within a Studio Connections-compatible DAW software, or
can be started as a stand-alone application.
2. Set the MIDI Ports.
When starting Studio Manager as a stand-alone application:
Set the MIDI Ports by calling up the MIDI Ports window via [File] → [Setup] → [MIDI Settings]. When the
connection is done via a USB cable, enter the checkmarks to the boxes of Por ts 1 and 4 for the MOTIF-RACK
XS in both the Input Ports and the Output Ports, as illustrated below. When connection is made via the
IEEE1394 cable, enter checkmarks to the boxes of the Por ts corresponding to the mLAN MIDI In and the
mLAN MIDI Out of the MOTIF-RACK XS, in both the Input Por ts and the Output Ports.
n A MIDI Thru function is available on Studio Manager version 2.3.0 or later. This new feature lets you transmit
note on/off messages from the MIDI keyboard to the MOTIF-RACK XS instrument through the computer
(without starting the DAW software), letting you hear the sound of the edited Voice by playing the keyboard.
When starting Studio Manager as a plug-in:
Set the MIDI Ports on the DAW application. For details, refer to the manual of your DAW application.
When connecting the MOTIF-RACK XS to a computer via a USB cable, the MIDI Ports are automatically
set simply by starting Studio Manager from Cubase 4 or Cubase AI 4. This is also true when connecting
the MOTIF-RACK XS to a computer via an IEEE1394 cable and installing “Extensions for Steinberg
DAW” to the computer.
3. Start the MOTIF-RACK XS Editor from the window of the Studio Manager.
For details, refer to the Installation Guide and the PDF manual of the Studio Manager.
When using Studio Manager as a plug-in with the Audio Integration features of Studio Connections
(within a compatible DAW), you can start the MOTIF-RACK XS Editor just as you would any other
software synthesizer. For details, visit the following web site.

An Example of MOTIF-RACK XS Editor in Use
An Example of MOTIF-RACK XS Editor in Use
There is no single way to use the many components in the MOTIF-RACK XS 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 MOTIF-RACK XS Editor. As an example, this section explains how to edit a Voice in the Voice mode, edit
a Mixing program in the Multi mode, then store the edited data to the memory of the MOTIF-RACK XS
instrument and save the final results of your editing to a file.
n If the [Multi] indication (at the top left of the display) is on, perform the instructions below from step 1. If the [Voice]
indication is on, perform the instructions below from step 2.
1. Change the mode to the Voice mode by clicking the [Voice] indication (at the top left
of the display).
If the MOTIF-RACK XS has been connected to the computer properly and the MIDI Port (page 40) has
been set properly, starting the MOTIF-RACK XS Editor will set the [ONLINE]/[OFFLINE] indication to
[ONLINE], meaning that the settings of the MOTIF-RACK XS Editor and the MOTIF-RACK XS instrument
are synchronized with each other. In this case, the Auto Sync window is called up automatically via this
step 1, making step 2 is unnecessary. Go to step 3.
2. Click the [OFFLINE] to call up the Auto Sync window if the [ONLINE]/[OFFLINE]
indication is set to [OFFLINE].
3. On the Auto Sync window, set communication-related parameters such as Input Port,
Output Port and Device Number in the Data Port section, then set the direction of Data
Auto Synchronization (Global, Current and Voice) in the Auto Sync Setting section.
When you want to use the settings on the MOTIF-RACK XS itself as starting data for editing, set the
boxes of Global, Current and Voice in the Auto Sync Setting to on so that the data flows from the
instrument to the computer. To use the settings on the MOTIF-RACK XS Editor as starting data, set both
Global, Current and Voice to the opposite, so that the arrow indicates data flow from the computer to the
keyboard. For details, see page 40.
CAUTION
Keep in mind that when you set Global, Current and User Voice to On, enable data sync from the computer to the MOTIFRACK XS (instrument), and then click the [Start] button at the bottom, this operation transmits these types of data currently
on the Editor to the MOTIF-RACK XS itself, automatically overwriting and erasing all the corresponding data already existing
on memory of the MOTIF-RACK XS instrument. When you want to use the settings on the MOTIF-RACK XS itself as starting
data for editing, set the boxes of Global, Current and Voice in the Auto Sync Setting to on so that the data flows from the
instrument to the computer.

Auto Sync window
This window is used for changing the status of the Editor from “OFFLINE” to “ONLINE.” While editing a parameter
on the Editor affects the same parameter on the MOTIF-RACK XS instrument and vice versa in the Online status,
you can disable the “mirroring” of parameter changes between the devices by switching to Offline status. The Auto
Sync window can be called up by clicking “OFFLINE” on the Editor window when the Editor is in the Offline status.
The Auto Sync window can also be called up automatically (without clicking “OFFLINE”) under the following
circumstances:
• When opening a file.
• When creating a new file by selecting “New” under the File menu.
• When changing the mode on the Editor in the Online status of the Editor.
• When changing the mode on the MOTIF-RACK XS instrument in the Online status of the Editor.
• When the connection between the MOTIF-RACK XS and a computer are corrected after appropriately correcting
the setup of the MOTIF-RACK XS and the computer.
• When the settings on the MOTIF-RACK XS instrument and the computer are corrected after appropriately
reconnecting the devices.
n If the Auto Start parameter is set to “On” in the Auto Sync window, data synchronization may be started automatically as
soon as the Auto Sync window is opened in certain conditions. For details, see page 12.
On the Auto Sync window, set the Data Port properly then click [Start] button to execute data synchronization. As
soon as the data synchronization is completed, the Auto Sync window is closed then the OFFLINE indication
changes to ONLINE automatically.

Troubleshooting
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.
• Is “ONLINE” indicated on the Editor window?
• Is the lamp at left of “ONLINE” indicator turned on?
If it is turned off, the settings related to communication between the MOTIF-RACK XS and a
computer may be wrong. Check the MIDI Port setting (page 40) on the MOTIF-RACK XS Editor
and Studio Manager, the MIDI IN/OUT parameter setting in the MIDI display of the Utility mode on
the MOTIF-RACK XS instrument, or the cable connection between the MOTIF-RACK XS and the
computer.
• Check the MIDI Port setting and Device No. setting. (page 41)
• Check the MIDI IN/OUT parameter setting in the MIDI display of the Utility mode on the MOTIFRACK XS.
Bulk data is not transmitted/received successfully.
• Check the same points as above such as “ONLINE” indication and MIDI Port settings.
The appropriate Port is not shown in the Setup window.
• The MIDI Port in the Setup window can be selected from the Ports specified in the host
application. Check the MIDI Port settings in the host application.
• When “!” is shown at left of the Port name (e.g., “! Yamaha USB IN 0-1”), this indicates that the
previously used Port cannot be found or some Ports are not set properly. Check the MIDI Port
settings in the host application.
