I have a MOX8. Under “Voice” I found some arpeggios that I wanted to record in a “song”.  But it seems like as soon as I change from “voice” to “song” or “pattern” the arpeggios don’t sound as they did under “voice”.  I tried edit arpeggio and played around but was not able to get arpeggio to sound as it did under “voice”.  I am a newbie so please be patient with my primitive question.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

You might not have Parameter with Voice turned on. It should be on before you select the Voice.

See http://www.motifator.com/index.php/support/view/mox6_mox8_parameter_with_voice

Also see page 114 of the MOX Reference Manual (http://download.yamaha.com/file/48534).

My experience on Motifator is that we’re reasonably patient, no matter the nature of the question.

The above will likely resolve things for you, but if not, let us know.

Following the directions, still the arpeggio under “pattern” or “song” does not sound as under “voice”.  Following are some differences:
1) It seems as tempo of the arpeggio changes when it’s brought into “song”, it plays with faster tempo and I could not figure how to lower the tempo under “song” where I saw tempo under “voice” that could be changed.
2) Under the “voice” the arpeggio sounds more fully, but when brought to “song” it sounds not as glamorous or fully as under “voice” (hard to describe).
3) The volume under “song” sounds less.
Thanks again.  I appreciate your guidance.

You’re welcome.

There are a few things to consider…
It’s important that Parameter with Voice is turned on before you select the Voice (it won’t work if the order is reversed). If you’ve selected the Voice first, turn on Parameter with Voice, select a different Voice, and then reselect the one you want.

Songs and Patterns have a default tempo (120), which may be slower or faster than the Arp tempo in Voice mode. The setting can be accessed from the Song/Pattern Play screen - it’s next to the quarter note symbol. See (7) on the screen diagram on page 76 of the MOX Reference Manual and (7) ♩(Tempo) on page 77.

Make sure you’re selecting the same number Arp in Song mode as the one you’re playing in Voice mode.

Default effects will not be the same in Song mode as Voice mode. While Insert Effects are copied from the Voice, System Effects (reverb and chorus) are not.
See http://www.motifator.com/index.php/support/view/mox6_mox8_introducing_the_effects and download the PDF for details.

Volume of the Voice when copied to a Part in a Song or Pattern will be reduced because typically there will be several Parts playing at the same time. Volume for a Part can be increased if necessary.

I hope that helps.

when I get a chance in the next few days I’ll try to see how matching the effects work.
Thanks again for clarifying.
