Viewing topic "Utilizing purchased Voice libraries for ES8"

Question: If I purchase a voice library, for instance the Kawai grand piano collection available for sale in the Motifator store, and it comes on a 1GB flashdrive, how much DIMMs memory on my ES8 must I have to use this properly? I don’t think I need 1GB since I won’t be using all of the samples at same time. Is this true? Do I just plug the flashdrive into the Motif and go? Are CD’s better/worse for this sort of usage? I would need to purchase a CD-ROM in order to read the CD correct? Thanks for the info, Alan

If you look at the “details” page for each of the voice libraries, it will tell you how much sample memory is required by that library.

The K-Sounds Piano 2 library (Kawai EX Concert Grand) comes in configurations that require 61 - 150 MB of sample memory.

There’ no need (or advantage) to utilize a USB CDROM for loading these samples. As a matter of fact, since the ES does not support writing to CDROMs, you’re ahead to use the Flash Drive as you can also use it to save and load other data as well.
