Added to the operating system of the Motif ES is the ability to memorize your UTILITY settings including whether or not AUTOLOAD is active, and whether you prefer USB or MIDI as your default. These UTILITY settings are written to Flash ROM and are saved to external media (CARD or USB drive) when you save an ALL data file. The thing you need to know is that when you change something in your UTILITY mode, to lock it in you must press STORE. The Motif ES will briefly show you a progress bar as it updates the current Flash ROM settings. This has been added to differentiate temporary changes from those that you wish to make permanent.
