Hi all, I have set up a set list of performances and songs in Master Mode but despite scouring manuals and forums, I am still having difficulties setting the MOXF to receive program changes from an external synth. Is there a semi straighforward guide on the proper settings so that the MOXF will receive the program changes? Thanks.

From the notes beneath the Bank Select table on page 123 of the MOXF Data List (https://usa.yamaha.com/files/download/other_assets/2/330242/moxf6moxf8_en_dl_a0.pdf):
“The Master number and the Performance/Song/Pattern/Voice mode can be changed only via the Parameter Change.”

That means an ordinary Program Change message won’t work to select Master numbers - it requires SysEx…
F0 43 10 7F 1C 00 0A 00 00 dd F7
...where “dd” is the Master number in hex, 00~7F (Master #1~128).
To use this message the MOXF has to already be in Master mode.
A decimal to hex conversion chart is on page 119 of the Data List.
Note that Master numbering is +1 (1~128, not 0~127).

Examples:
F0 43 10 7F 1C 00 0A 00 00 00 F7 selects Master #1
F0 43 10 7F 1C 00 0A 00 00 0A F7 selects Master #11
F0 43 10 7F 1C 00 0A 00 00 20 F7 selects Master #33

The SysEx message is based on the MOXF6/MOXF8 Data List. See…
(3-6-3-1) NATIVE PARAMETER CHANGE, MODE CHANGE on page 121
and MIDI PARAMETER CHANGE TABLE (MODE CHANGE) on page 125
