This application tutorial (click link below to download the zipped tutorial) describes how to setup seamless transition from one Voice to another while playing and explores alternate assignments for controllers and some unique uses for XA Control functions.
About the included Files (zipped):
• Seamless Transition.X0S – this ALL SONG file will load your XS sequencer with 3 “songs”. Select Track Select 1 in order to play them properly. It contains the three example “songs” – there is no music data, per se, just the PARTS setup and saved as MIXING VOICES.
Also included are Motif XS Editor versions of these same three setups:
• PianoFC2 StringAF1.X0E
Alternatively, you use the Editor files, which can be opened in the Motif XS Editor and sent via MIDI (USBMIDI or Firewire-MIDI).
As explained in the article the data was created by editing Voices, then placing those Voices in an XS Performance. The Performance was then imported into a SONG setup and MIXING VOICES created from the data. The only reason this was done was to not take up multiple Voice locations in your USER banks just to try this data. You are given all the information to create the Voices and Performances yourself.
