The voices in my motif XF do not seem to match those in the downloaded data list. In addition, the voices are repeated several times in the Motif voice list. What may have happened? Can I have deleted them by mistake? Is it possible to re-enter voices in the motif and where can I get them? Is it possible to download somewhere and start over from the beginning?
Many questions but hope for someone who can help me :)

Yes, see Resetting the User Memory to the Initial Factory Settings on page 18 of the Motif XF Owner’s Manual.  That will give you a fresh start.

You are correct in that there are repeated VOICES in the USER BANKS of the machine.  These duplicates are simply place-holders, until you STORE future custom VOICES of your own in those slots, which will overwrite them.

Update Note: Be aware the VOICES in USER1 are unique new VOICES for the XF.  That is, while they can certainly be overwritten as USER VOICES, they are not duplicated elsewhere on the machine.

VOICES in USER BANKS 2, 3, and 4 are all duplicates of PRE VOICES.

PRE VOICES cannot be overwritten or deleted.

It is good practice to SAVE an ALL file to USB drive, containing the Factory condition of the machine, for future selective re-LOADING of Factory USER data (VOICES, PERFORMANCES, etc.) as/if desired.

Once you perform a Factory Set as outlined above, you can conveniently do this.

Which Data List did you download? All PREset Voice Banks should match, as should USER 1 Voices if they weren’t replaced.

XF Data List:

If your XF doesn’t match the ones in that PDF, please give us some examples.
