Hi guys,
This is probably a silly question to all of you but the sounds in my motif es do not sound as good in the pattern mode and I was just wondering why or how I can solve this problem it’s confusing with the the insertion effects and everything so I’m just not sure what I can do to make the pianos or the electric piano sound as good as they do when I’m in voice mod I also want to know if I can use the insertion effects with my plg 150 DX card as this would be nice to make it sound better. So far I only know how to use chorus and reverb effects with it.

Why do the sounds go from being awesome in voice mode to being thin and just not as good in pattern mode.

Please help

Thanks alot

James

Hi thanks for your reply. But that doesn’t answer the question fully unfortunately, I’m struggling to understand how to access the same sounds in pattern mode that I have in voice mode. Surely there is a way. I mean I don’t care about arpeggios just the effects and tone of the voice. Is it not possible to use the sounds like they sound in voice mode.? I read the articles but they dont really explain what I’m asking. Do you guys not have any problems with this or do you just accept the slightly weaker sound in pattern mode. The only work around I can find is to just record the motif in voice mode using a daw once I have programmed the midi but this is not how I wanted to use it. 

Thanks for any help anyway, anything is appreciated

James

The articles explain how the effects work and how to copy a Voice to a Mixing Part including effects. One other consideration is that the Out Volume for Parts is reduced in the sequencer modes (Song/Pattern) because there can be up to 16 Parts playing at the same time, and the overall volume level might otherwise be too high. You can try increasing volume for each Part, via Pattern Mixing Edit mode. See pages 248, 235, and 217 of the ES Owner’s Manual concerning VOL/PAN settings.
