Hi Everyone,

 

I just got a Motif Rack and I would like to use it in Logic.

I already get a Keyboard Controler plugged in USB (M-Audio 49)

I plug the Motif in USB to my Mac and in Midi between the Motif and the keyboard.

I set the motif utility to USB.

then in Logic I choose External as intrument...but nothing is happenning.

I need your help

 

regards

Did you install the midi drivers for your Motif Rack on to your Mac? I can only assume you didn't since that wasn't mentioned in the steps you performed.

 

I have a Motif Rack ES and is not "plug and play" thru its USB port. A USB midi driver is needed.

 

BTW, the USB is only for the midi, there is no audio passing through the USB port. So you will also need a cable to connect the audio out of your rack to the audio in of your sound card or computer if you want the audio to come in to Logic.

 

Logic's Instrument tracks are for software instruments, hardware instruments need an audio or aux track as was mentioned.

Here's my set-up

 

Edirol PCR-800 -midi out

Motif Rack ES - Midi In

Motif Rack ES - USB out (Midi In/Out - USB)

Imac - USB in

 

Here's my question/problem

 

Logic receives the midi signals, but it seems as if the Motif isn't; like I can't play any of the motif sounds unless I switch the ultility midi back from usb to midi.

Check under FILE>PROJECT SETTINGS>MIDI

 

Click on the Input Filter Tab. Make sure that nothing is checked.

 

Also if you are playing you have to be on a

external midi track (hit the plus above the track header). Then select the port your Motif is on in the parameters box on the left.
