Viewing topic "PLG150 and External Sequencer"

Okay, I am officially frustrated. I have a Motif ES6 with the PLG150-AP and AN boards in physical expansion ports 2 and 3. I have the boards assigned under the MIDI controls to Port 2 (when I change the port number both change together). I have Device set to ALL.

Based on other posts, it appears I should be able to access these boards in Logic 8 through Motif Midiport 2; midi channel 2 and 3. I get no sounds. Any suggestions?

Re: PLG150 and External Sequencer

The PLG150 series boards are all SINGLE PART boards. They only occupy one MIDI channel, each. So when you set the PORT NO. for the PLG150 boards they all change together. Because all three can (and do) exist on the same PORT

A PORT, by definition, has 16 MIDI channels. There are 3 slots so even if you had all three slots filled, all three boards could share the same PORT.

If you set the PORT to 2, then
SLOT 1 = MIDI Channel 1 of PORT 2
SLOT 2 = MIDI Channel 2 of PORT 2
SLOT 3 = MIDI Channel 3 of PORT 2

Hope that helps.

You can only address the Motif ES’s PORT 2 from an external sequencer, if you are using USB-MIDI or mLAN-MIDI… in other words if you are connected to the Motif ES via a 5 pin MIDI cable you will not be able to address anything on PORT 2.

I got it figured out. In “Pattern” -"Mixer"-"Edit", and then properly select the PLG150 voice. My bad.
