Hi all,
I need a small help here.
I’m planning to automate the loading of the User Multi by sendng a MIDI message or Sysex message included into a MIDI file.
It is not clar to me how to procede.
Within the Motif XS Rack user manual I found the sysex to Switch between Voice and Multi but nothing about the messages to Load User Multi.
Can someone help me?
Many thanks in advance for your kind help.
In addition please give me also some advice how to create such a MIDI file (text edit or what else).
Many thanks to all.
Best regards
Paolo

Hi Paolo,

Within the Motif XS Rack user manual I found the sysex to Switch between Voice and Multi but nothing about the messages to Load User Multi.

First, send the SysEx string to your Motif-Rack XS, to switch it into Multi mode:

F0 43 10 7F 03 0A 00 01 05 F7 (Hexadecimal)

F0 - Exclusive status
43 - Yamaha ID
1n - n=Device Number (0=Device no. 1)
7F - Model ID
03 - Model ID
0A - Address High
00 - Address Mid
01 - Address Low
0d - Data (d=0 Voice, d=5 Multi, d=6 Demo)
F7 - End of Exclusive

After the SysEx, when the Motif-Rack XS has switched to Multi mode, you can send a set of Bank Select and Program Change messages (see the Data List, p.62) to select the appropriate Multi program:

Bank Select MSB = 63
Bank Select LSB = 68
Program Change = 0-127
(Multi 001-128)

In addition please give me also some advice how to create such a MIDI file (text edit or what else).

Any MIDI sequencer (Cakewalk, Cubase, Logic, Reaper, etc.) will let you create and edit MIDI files. It will also let you insert the above messages as MIDI events onto a track.

Note: By placing these MIDI events at the beginning of a song, the messages are sent to the instrument when playback starts. You may have to create some space after the messages, however, so that the Motif-Rack XS has time to process the Mode change and Multi selection before the note data starts playing.

Thanks a lot Henry.
One more question. Can I replace the Bank Select and Program change with a correspondent Sysex?
Since I have two different expanders in chain (Roland Integra-7 and Yamaha Motif XS Rack) I have the doubt that Bank Select and Program change will be processed by both.
I’m currently using a Sysex for the Integra-7 che select the song (they call it STUDIO SET) that in my case correspond to the Multi (same song) on Motif.
Both expanders work together when I play live with two different Mater Keyboard, and few tracks from the DAW.
Best regards
Paolo

I wouldn’t rule out the possibility, although it is certainly not among the documented functions.

If the rack synths are chained using one of the 5-pin MIDI Thru ports, I can see the problem. Have you set them up with different Basic Receive Channels, and turned off the unused parts on each one?
