Hi there,

I was wondering if anyone out there has experience with loading the twiddly bit midi files into the ES (without computer/ via USB stick).

I bought the ‘bottoms up’ basslines and checking the files out is a bit frustrating: when loading a patern, all tracks are set to ‘grand piano’. Changing the track voices in mixing mode doesn’t do the job: during playback of the midifiles (or at least when you push ‘stop’ and then ‘play’ again) all the track voices automaticly change back to ‘grand piano’.

I thought of a solution: making a mixing template, load the midi file, then load the mixing template (with all voices set to bass plus one drum track). This works, until you push ‘stop’ and then ‘play’ again: all voices are set back to grand piano again… )-:

So the only thing that I find working is to set all individual tracks (in phrase header, i.e. push ‘rec’, than select voice, than select a bass sound ... and this 14 thime to get all bass tracks right ...).

So a long story, but here’s my question: is there a smarter/ easier way of loading/ listening to the smf files? Or is there a less time consuming manner to ‘lock’ the voices of all the tracks to a bass sound without having them change (when push stop and then play again)?

Maybe you have the TB bass lines and/ or guitar grooves and would like to share your experience with loading/ auditioning the files. Thanks!

Kind regards, Michiel

You can write the Voice selection into what is called the Phrase Header

The Voice that was used to create a Pattern Phase is stored with the Phrase. To see the currently stored Voice:
Call up the pattern and select the track containing phrase
Press [Record]
Press [F2] Voice
Here you will see the data that the phrase thinks you want to affect this particular data.
Change the voice to the one you want
Press [Stop]

You have now rewritten the Phrase Header… The Motif ES thinks this is the Voice you want to use.
