Hi all,

My name is Trace. Many years ago I bought a Motif XS8 for studio work, but lately I want to take the sounds with me on the road to do live shows without having to haul the massive keyboard around. I recently bought an M-Audio Oxygen Pro to do midi projects and I feel the device may be a good fit to acheive these live shows. Yet for some reason I am having trouble connecting the keyboard to the Motif XS Editor in the software. Currently the M-Audio is connected via USB, my computer is a Surface Pro 3 with Windows 10 on it. I’d appreciate any help on this subject.

Thanks!
-Trace

*hmmm* I may be missing something here… Are you trying to play the XS voices from the Oxygen, without having the XS around?

Yes I am. The motif is in another room, but when I go out live I’d prefer the Oxygen for portability. So it’s just the Oxygen and the Motif Editor.

I see how that would be convenient, but you do realize that neither the Oxygen keyboard nor the XS Editor can generate any sound, right?

Hi Trace

The Motif XS Editor is not a software instrument, only a tool to edit the parameters of your “real” Motif XS keyboard. It doesn’t contain any wave data and therefore can’t produce any sound. If you want a device that generates Motif XS sounds without being a Motif XS keyboard, look for the Motif-Rack XS.

Best regards, hobbit
