I’ve searched the forum for this answer. I’m sure it’s there and I just don’t understand. I’m playing live on the moxf8 and want to know how/where to record a horn section (4 measures) and then while playing live, trigger(?) the horns to play on the chorus of the song. I’m a senior newbie and almost embarrassed to ask the question. Thx

Hi there

You would have to record a 4 bar song for that, if you did a pattern, it would loop. Then hit [Play] when you want the horn section to come in.

Alternatively, record the whole song with mainly empty measures and press [Play] at the beginning.

I guess I’m not properly explaining myself. I will be playing live with my band, with a piano voice on the moxf8. At the chorus of the song I need to have the horn part come in while I’m playing the piano.
I need to know how to trigger the pre recorded horn part as I play the piano part.

The only way to trigger your prerecorded sequence, as far as I know, is by playing it. I don’t think there is a way to trigger with a key or similar.

A sampler may be more suitable for what you described.

Welcome to the forum.

Your explanation is clear, but perhaps you aren’t grasping what zpink has suggested.

For live play, start with this…
http://www.motifator.com/index.php/support/view/using_a_moxf_mixing_program_for_quick_access_to_multiple_sounds_in_a_live_s

In Song Mixing mode, set Part 1 to use the Voice you prefer for the piano. Then set the Voice for Part 2 to the horn ensemble, and record the horns for four measures to Track 2. STORE the Song/Mixing.

Select Track 1 in Song mode. Play the piano via the keyboard, press [ > ](Play) when you want the recorded horns to come in.
