I was in the process of mixing an organ track and I chose to use the mod wheel in its upright position during the tracking, I thought that the motif would capture and save that effect but it did not. and now to hear the organ effect i have to keep it in that position, but now the mod wheel is effecting my horn track ,I think there is a way around this but i can’t seem to find it. Thanks for any insight.

Talk us through your setup.

Are you recording audio or MIDI? It sound like you are recording MIDI but just want to be sure.

Cheers

Yes I believe I’m recording midi, I’m in song mode of the motif es 6, I’m hooked up(stereo input) to a soundcraft M8 analog mixer/with the digital output sending the signal into my alesis masterlink two track digital recorder, would that be a midi setup?

Re: can I save a mod wheel setting?

MIDI tracks will record the data it if occurs while the sequencer is in record. If you place the wheel all the way up and then start to record, the sequencer did not “see” the wheel move.

The normal position of the wheel is down. So the sequencer never noticed that you had the wheel up… Same is true with the sustain pedal… if you put your foot on the sustain pedal prior to record, the sequencer never noticed that you stepped on the pedal. The normal condition of the sustain pedal is OFF.  Same as the normal position of the wheel is down.

What you can do is insert a Modulation event into the track data.

From SONG mode
Press the Track button containing the organ sound.
Press [EDIT] to view the EVENT LIST
Press [F5] INSERT>
Move the cursor down to EVENT TYPE and select “CONTROL CHANGE”
Move the cursor up and at Measure 001:1:000 set the CTRL = 001 [ModWheel] and set the DATA = 127
Press [F6] SET to enter this event.

Press SONG to return to the main screen. Now when you start playback the MW has been told to go to maximum. (the Motif ES can “see” that)

Hope that helps.
