Good day Motifator gang.

I have found your forum while researching information to help our band’s keyboard player, who is not very versed using his Motif. I am trying to help.

I am certain this question was posted before and somebody can answer this in a minute:

How can I save 4-5 samples that are loaded on a USB thumb drive to a voice (either drum or other) and trigger them with one key each.

I succeeded to load the samples to Integrated Sampling with instructions from the forum. Thanks!

I can trigger them, but sometimes the basic sound (piano for example) is still under the sample.

I just cannot save to voice.

We installed (probably for nothing) 2 DIMM cards.

I know that the USB has to stay in the keyboard, since the XS does not save samples (as opposed to the XF)

I would probably like to do an AUTOLOAD on power-up.

Thanks for your help.

Alain, bass player

Welcome to the forum.

For your purposes, placing the samples in a Drum Kit is appropriate.


If you have specific questions afterward, just ask.

Since SDRAM (DIMM) memory is volatile, you’ll indeed need to reload the samples at each power-up, and using Auto Load minimizes the effort.

See pages 262-263 of the XS Owner’s Manual (

By the way, there’s a specific Motifator forum for the XS. Since answers can vary with model, it’s usually best to post in the related forum:

Thank you very much 5pinDIN.

I will follow your recommendations as soon as I get my hands on the Motif keyboard.

Your recommendations are highly appreciated.

Best regards.
