In master mode I can use the sliders 5-9 to control part volumes on an external device based on corresponding midi-channels assigned to each slider/zone transmit channel. But is it possible somehow to also assign some buttons on the Motif XF so they can mute parts/midi-channels on an external device? For example if I use a Piano sound from the XF on Zone 1 and have a pad/string sound from an external device on zone 5 that I quickly want to toggle on and of by pressing a (mute) button.

Welcome to the forum.

There’s no need to assign anything - the ability to turn on/off internal and external Zones for Song/Pattern Masters is already a function in the XF if at least version 1.40 of the OS is installed.

Press the [PERFORMANCE CONTROL] button
Buttons 1~8 control internal switches for Zones 1~8
Buttons 9~16 control external switches for Zones 1~8
If a button is lit the switch is on, unlit it’s off.

See page 7 of the XF Supplementary Manual:
https://usa.yamaha.com/files/download/other_assets/4/325614/motifxf_v150_en_nf_c0.pdf

If your XF doesn’t have at least OS 1.40, it should be updated. The most recent XF OS is version 1.50 .

Just a follow-up question, is this feature also available in some update for the Motif XS as well?

No, although there’s a way to do it from XS Master mode…
Press [EDIT]
Press a button [1]~[8] to select a Zone
Press [F1]Transmit (default if another wasn’t previously selected)
Highlight the desired external switch and use the NO and YES buttons as needed.

If another Master is selected, pressing [EDIT] will go directly to the Transmit screen.

Obviously, it’s not as convenient as on an XF.

Hi again, one more question regarding this. Is these convenient functions that followed the last update on the XF also available on the MOXF?

The MOXF has the same capability of internal/external Zone switching as the XF. However, a MOXF is limited to four Zones, whether or not this function is used.

With the MOXF…
Press the [PERFORMANCE CONTROL] button
Buttons 1~4 control internal switches for Zones 1~4
Buttons 9~12 control external switches for Zones 1~4
