Can you please help me to connect my Motif XS6 to a laptop? I have alredy tried doing it with a cable like those used for printers, but it didn’t work. I am trying to connect it to the laptop in order to be able to use an editing program,named John Melas.
I have alredy changed the Midi setting to the USB at my Motif,but still didn’t want to connect to the laptop.
Do I need to install another driver to my laptop or do I need to do some other settings to my keyboard?
Thank you!

The cable should connect from the XS “TO HOST” port to the USB port on the laptop.

The correct USB-MIDI Driver is required. Since you didn’t tell us whether your laptop is a Mac or Windows machine, and which OS is installed on it, we can’t point you to the specific driver.

Driver for Windows 10 32-bit:
https://usa.yamaha.com/support/updates/umd_win32_kbd.html
https://usa.yamaha.com/files/download/software/1/789911/um3141x86.zip

Driver for Windows 10 64-bit:
https://usa.yamaha.com/support/updates/umd_win64_kbd.html
https://usa.yamaha.com/files/download/software/7/789907/um3141x64.zip

Make sure you STORE the Utility mode MIDI In/Out “USB” setting.

After the proper driver is installed, run Setup for the Melas software.

An example of what should result…

... but the “XF8” should be “XS6” for your Motif.

The most recent OS (firmware) for the Motif XS is version 1.60. It’s almost 10 years old. I don’t expect Yamaha to be issuing any further updates.
