Hello my Motif Brothers & Sisters, my name is William Bryant, I’ve enjoyed and used all of your suggestions many a day on this forum.  Just recently I had my 2001 Yamaha Motif 8 classic (88k) key repaired. Got it back and for some reason when I press a key to a voice, the
voice it echos kind of like a reverb,very annoiying. Do I have to do a
factory reset (please say no :-), or any suggestion from you I will follow. Also do I need to save an all file first then factory reset!! Help, & Thank all of you so much in advance if you decide to respond, if not thanks for your reading this post!!

Sincerely
William Bryant

Do you hear this echo/reverb on all Voices?
In all modes (Voice, Performance, Song)?
On headphones plugged into the PHONES jack?

You didn’t fully answer my questions.

All I can suggest is that you indeed back up your data to an “All” file, and do a factory reset (although you seem resistant to this). Let us know if the problem persists.

Hi

Just because it’s not stated, nothing else plugged in to the synth? No MIDI, USB or other cables that could cause a loop?

Sometimes it’s the little things… ;-)

Best of luck

Yes, and that’s why I asked the questions, with the hope of homing in on the cause.  :-)

Oh ok.
I only read your answer as being about headphones/audio connection.

Sorry if I doubled up the bits on Mr Motif’s server unnecessarily. :-)

I didn’t mean to.

Cheerio

Edit: now saw that the quote was only one line.
D’oh more wasted bits and maybe I should stay off my phone whilst at work hahaha

Just to make sure there’s no misunderstanding…
I saw nothing wrong with your suggestion. I was just hoping that junebug22 would provide a bit more to go on. Knowing whether all Voices were affected, and in which Modes, could be helpful. I was considering asking for a short recording of the symptom if that seemed merited.

Sorry for the confusion.
I thought that I had accidentally repeated your advice/question (it has happened in some other thread).

It all comes down to me not reading properly before typing on a phone whilst waiting for a SQL query to finish running at work on a rather hectic and stressful day.

Reading it now, I realise that I may have come across as a bit rude, which I of course did not mean to be.

Lesson learned, stay away from forums when you don’t have time to read properly!

Again, sorry for the confusion, poor typing and choices of words.

Kindest regards
zpink

Hey Fella’s, Wow, thanks for the great responce, also I should have been more clear. Yes the echos are on all voices in voice mode. I was a little hesitant to do a factory reset, but as I recall the the folks at the electronics store did reccomend a factory reset. Anyhoo, you both are awsome and I really thank you for your advice. I will create an All file,save file, then reset, will keep you two in the loop!!

Rock On my Yamaha Musical Brothers!!
