My friend is letting me borrow his Motif ES keyboard but I'm having trouble setting it up in Cubase. I have a USB cable running from the Motif to my computer. I created a MIDI track in Cubase and set its input to the Motif Port 1. I press a button on the motif and the meter will move in Cubase so I know its connected right. I also know MIDI doesn't play audio, but how do I route it so I can hear the audio (im pretty new to cubase)? I also downloaded Yamaha's Studio Manager and Multi-Part Editor which allows you to go thru the motif's library from within cubase.
Set the output to the Motif too? Then make sure you have an audio track with the inputs that Motif is using.
You basically need it so that you hit a key on the Motif and it sends data to Cubase, Cubase will send it back and trigger the Motif as well. To accomplish this you need Midi going in and out AND the audio out from the motif connected to your interface/soundcard.
I've never tried running a keyboard USB before, I used to run the MIDI ins/outs and two stereo 1/4'' into a preamp. Does a USB provide MIDI info AND audio? All the VST connections stuff is a bit confusing. How do I access the yamaha multi-part editor from within Cubase? Thanks for the help!
Got the latest driver, multi-part editor, and the Studio Manager (can't remember the name, but its something like this right?). What I want to do is control the Motif from within Cubase with my little M-Audio controller. I won't be tracking/recording in the Motif, but rather want to access its samples on-the-fly.
Since the Motif is connected via USB, in Utilitiy I set it to 'USB.' So open up the Studio Manager, Add the multi-part editor....and then what in Cubase? Sorry for such annoying questions, really appreciate the help!
