MOTIF XS AI Driver V1.1.3 (Mac OS X Universal Binary)

Download Motif XS AI Driver V1.13 (Mac OS X Universal Binary)

To use this driver you need to have an mLAN16E2 installed in your MOTIF XS6, MOTIF XS7 or MOTIF-RACK XS.  The Motif XS8 comes with the Firewire card pre-installed.
This driver is a peer to peer driver that enables you to connect a single n8, n12 or mLAN16E2 to a computer and transfer audio/MIDI signals via an IEEE1394 cable.

If you want to use more than one device, please download and install the Yamaha Steinberg Firewire Driver.  This is a parallell peer to peer driver and allows you to connect up to three devices
( any combination of Motif XS, Motif XS rack, N Series or Steinberg MR816 Audio Interfaces) to your computer and use them at the same time.

When using a laptop or notebook computer, a built-in IEEE1394 terminal may not be available. If this is the case, install an appropriate PC interface card.
