Motif ES Question

Motif ES Question

I am looking to pick up a used Motif ES6 keyboard and was wondering:

-If I connect to my Mac via USB (using Pro Tools9 HD), will the midi work and allow me to daisy chain other rack synths (without getting a USB interface)?

-Do the sliders on the Motif allow me to control parameters in virtual synth (ie tweak the cutoff filter in Hybrid)?

Thanks for any info!!

My advice would be to not buy a motif and get Reason 5

NO, I do not want Reason, LOL!

Anyone know the answer to my questions? Thanks!

Your Motif should be able to act as a controller in Pro Tools, yes. You should also have no problem plugging in multiple USB MIDI devices. I currently use a Fantom X8 run into my Mac Pros USB, and I run my Roland E-Kit via standard MIDI cable into my interface. They work fine together.
