Have not found a way to use my moxf6 as a simple, 16 part multitimbral sound engine- to let my music software find and play these parts(Voices)on the moxf, using an old Cakewalk Music Creator 2003 seq program. This should be a simple handshake between my Cakewalk sequencer and the moxf, but it wont work. Also, Why can’t the moxf play a simple .smf file? Load the smf, put moxf in general midi mode-yet it will not perform correctly, nor will it automatically chose the correct gm sounds/voices. Even when I load the .smf file into the moxf, it still will not work correctly.

It’s not clear (to me) what you’re referring to as “general midi mode”. The MOXF has two Voice banks of GM-compatible instruments, Normal and Drum. Those, however, are not per-se “modes”.

Here are a couple of threads that address proper playback of GM files on the MOX…

The information is directly applicable to the MOXF. Be sure to click on the included links.

You might consider getting the the “MOXF In ‘N’ Out” video, which has a section addressing GM and SMFs.

Thanks, 5pinDIN. Appreciate the quick reply. So, can you address my first topic; using the moxf as a 16 part sound module, receiving commands from computer music software? Thanks.

See the Bad_Mister post in the previously linked thread…

...and initialize a Song Mixing, being sure to check-mark GM.

Once a Song location is properly initialized for GM…
If Cakewalk Music Creator 2003 sends a proper header, the MOXF will change all 16 Parts to Voices appropriate to those in the Cakewalk sequence.

While I don’t have a MOX/MOXF, my Motif XS and XF work fine with externally sequenced GM once a Song location is properly initialized. I have no doubt that your MOXF will do the same when correctly set up.
