Multis can be saved to your computer. The Multi Part Editor can also be used in connection with devices such as the Yamaha 01X Digital Mixing Studio or MOTIF ES Music Production Sythesizer, allowing you to operate the Multi Part Editor using real hardware controls.
Studio Manager is a cross-platform application that enables you to start multiple Editors for controlling YAMAHA hardware products remotely, and to save multiple Editor settings. For more information, refer to the separate Installation Guide or the Studio Manager PDF manual.
Multi Part Editor Files Every Multi in the MOTIF-RACK ES can be made up of voices selected from the collection of User Voices stored in the MOTIF-RACK ES. When a voice is modiﬁed, each Multi that utilizes that voice will be modiﬁed as well and as a result, your Multis may not sound the way they did when you ﬁrst made them.
About Open Plug-in Technology Open Plug-in Technology (OPT) is a new software format that enables you to control MIDI devices from a music DAW application software. For example, this allows you to start up and operate various parts of your music system, such as plug-in board editors, and mixing control editors - directly from an OPT-compatible sequencer, without having to use each separately.
All operations of the MOTIF-RACK ES Multi Part Editor can be utilized when running as a plug- in within Level 2 (Processors) and Level 3 (Views) host applications. Bulk data reception and remote control are not supported when running within Level 1 (Panels) host applications. Certain operations may not work as expected if there is no corresponding function in the host application.
An Example of the Multi Part Editor in Use There is no single way to use the many components of the Multi Part Editor. Your editing needs and preferences may differ; however, the following example gives you a simple step-by-step guide in how to use the Multi Part Editor.
Notice when starting the Studio Man- ager as a stand-alone application When starting the Studio Manager as a stand-alone application, you’ll also need to have the sequencer running simultaneously so that you can check the Part or Voice sounds edited in the Multi Part Editor or Voice Editor by using an external keyboard.
USB, or if MOTIF-RACK ES is not turned on. The “0” displayed in the port name (0-1, 0-2, etc.) indicates the number of the MIDI device connected to the computer via USB. Match this number to the “Device Name” in the “YAMAHA USB-MIDI Driver” dia- log.
(2) In the “YAMAHA USB-MIDI Driver” dialog, merge the output ports. • OUT Change the settings to connect the two output ports which are used by the sequencer and Multi Part Editor to MOTIF-RACK ES input port 1. For example, change the settings as shown in the illustrations below when using the output port 1 and output port 2 in the Studio Manager (Multi Part Editor) and sequencer.
