Motif Rack ES/General MIDI help


Recommended Posts

I've finally been able to upgrade from Garageband to Logic 8, and so far I love it. However, I'm having trouble using my newly purchased Yamaha Motif Rack ES to record as an external MIDI instrument.

My current setup looks like this:

Logic Pro 8

Yamaha Motif Rack ES

M-Audio Keystation 49e

Alesis Multimix8 Firewire


My program seems to be picking up the MIDI signals, hence the flashing lights in the corresponding channel areas, but when I go to playback my recording I hear nothing. Any ideas on what could be going on here?


I'm sure this is a fairly common beginner question, so my apologies in advance if this question seems redundant.

I'm not the most tech-savy person in the world, so all of this MIDI channel & port stuff still seems fairly foreign to me, which may be my problem.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
