In order to connect your Yamaha Motif XF8 to your computer via USB you must download and install the Yamaha USB-MIDI Driver

Go to:

Select your country so instructions will be in your language
Search by Model Number: Motif XF8

When the Search Results appear, verify “Motif XF8”

A List of items for your Motif XF8 will appear. You can further define the search by selecting your computer type and operating system: Windows 7 32-bit

the DRIVER you want is the “Yamaha USB-MIDI Driver V3.1.2”

It comes with instructions. Please read the instructions through completely once.
Then use them as a step-by-step guide on you second read through.

This way you have an idea of what you are supposed to be doing before attempting to install the driver.

Once you have the proper driver installed you can verify the connection and communication.
In your Motif go to
Press [F5] CONTROL
Press [SF2] MIDI
Make sure MIDI IN/OUT = USB
Press [STORE] to write this as your UTILITY setting.
