Motif XS YSFW Setup Mac with Cubase

When you are using the Motif XS with the Yamaha Steinberg FW driver (YSFW) you need to verify the following settings in your Motif XS:
Press [UTILITY]
Press [F1] GENERAL
Press [SF4] AUTO LOAD
Ensure that the IEEE1394 Driver = FW
If not, change the setting, then press [STORE] to write this preference to your Flash ROM
You will need to reboot the Motif XS for this setting to take place.

Next, you want to make sure that the MIDI communication is set to mLAN:
Press [UTILITY]
Press [F5] CONTROL
Press [SF2] MIDI
Ensure that the MIDI IN/OUT = mLAN
Press [STORE] to write this preferecne to your Flash ROM.

Now, let’s setup your Macintosh computer:

Go to SYSTEM PREFERENCES in your Dock
Find the Yamaha Steinberg FW icon listed in the “OTHER” category

Double click the icon to open the panel.
Here you will be able to set the Sample Rate (44.1kHz), the Word Clock Master (Motif XS7), and the Clock Source (Internal)

image

Click on the tab(s) that identifies your connected device(s): Motif XS7
The current IEEE1394 Firmware version of your mLAN16E2 will be shown. This should read: V1.07 currently

Now that we have verified that the Yamaha Steinberg Firewire driver is in place, lets make sure your Macintosh is set to use it.
On your Macintosh HD, go to APPLICATIONS > UTILITIES > AUDIO MIDI SETUP

On the AUDIO DEVICES tab select the Yamaha Steinberg FW driver as your audio device.

Close AUDIO MIDI SETUP.

Launch Cubase
Go to DEVICES > DEVICE SETUP… > MIDI > MIDI Port Setup

Here you will be able to select the device(s) that will be your MIDI controller. Typically this is either your Motif XS keyboard or any MIDI controller connected to its back panel MIDI IN jack.
Make sure that only these devices are marked in the “In ‘All Inputs’” column

image

You do not want to mark the Motif XS REMOTE port in the In All Inputs column. Remote Control commands must be kept discreet, so as not to interfere with normal music performance. In the next folder “REMOTE DEVICES” highlight the Motif XS item. It will be assigned as your Remote Control device and the MIDI IN and MIDI OUT ports will be assigned.

Move down to the VST AUDIO SYSTEM item and verify that the Yamaha Steinberg FW is selected as the ASIO DRIVER.

image

The option just below VST AUDIO SYSTEM will be “Yamaha Steinberg FW”. If you highlight that you will see the CONTROL PANEL where you can set your buffer size.
