I apologize if this has been covered, but I have not been able to find and answer in the Forum.

I have both an MOTIF XF7 and a MOXF6.  I have created Performance Patches in the MOTIF using pre-set voices, not unique user voices.  I have saved the performance patches to my computer using John Melas software.  It is my understanding that I should be able load the MOTIF XF7 performance patches into the MOXF6.  I’ve tried to load them using the Melas software and by using a USB memory stick. but the MOXF performance files are not seen by the MOXF.

I my understanding wrong?  If not, what else am i missing?

I have both the MOTIF and MOXF version of the Melas software and can generate performance patches just fine.

Thanks - Mark

Welcome to the forum.

The Melas software isn’t needed to load XF Performances into an MOXF.

1) Save an XF “All"/X3A file (without samples) to USB flash drive.
2) Move the flash drive to the MOXF.
3) Load single Performances or a bank of them to the MOXF. See 1BankPerform and Performance on page 156 of the MOXF Reference Manual (

Thanks for pointing me in the proper direction.  I have now loaded all of the MOTIF FX Performance patches into the MOXF.

As a follow up, I have been using the Melas software with both my MOTIF and MOXF to create performance patches.  Using that software, I thought I would be able to store the performance patches to my computer (windows 10) and transfer them between each keyboard (using the correct version of the software for each keyboard).  The software saves discreet performance patches as *.prf.

Can you provide some guidance on where to look to address this?

Thanks again!

The *.prf files are a proprietary Melas Performance Editor file that you can obviously save and back up.

You’ll need a copy of Total Librarian for each instrument.

You can transmit your Performances from each instrument to its own version of Total Librarian and then save as a Total Librarian file for that instrument.  In your case, the Total Librarian file suffix would be an *.allxf for Motif XF and *.allmoxf for MOXF.

A MOXF Total Librarian File can be imported into the Motif XF Total Librarian and vice versa.

Once imported, you can transmit to your instrument.
