I purchased a S90 XS and have it running through Sonar using the USB port.  I see that there’s 5 possible MIDI ins and outs in my MIDI device group.  What’s the different ports for?  This is my first Yamaha in years and I’ve not seen this with any of my other boards before.

Port 1
The tone generator block in this instrument can recognize and use only this port. When playing the S90 XS/S70 XS as a tone generator from the external MIDI instrument or computer, you should set the MIDI Port to 1 on the connected MIDI device or computer.

Port 2
This port is used to control the DAW software on the computer from the S90 XS/S70 XS by using the Remote Control feature.

Port 3
This port is used as the MIDI Thru Port.
The MIDI data received over Port 3 via the USB TO HOST terminal will be re-transmitted to an external MIDI device via the MIDI OUT terminal. The MIDI data received over Port 3 via the MIDI IN terminal will be re-transmitted to an external device (computer, etc.) via the USB TO HOST terminal.

Port 4
This port is used only for data communication of the S90 XS/S70 XS Editor. No other software or device can use this port.

Port 5
This port is used only for data communication of the S90 XS/S70 XS Remote Editor. No other software or device can use this port.
