A message from the MOX6/MOX8
Development Team
Thank you for purchasing the Yamaha MOX6/MOX8 Music Production Synthesizer.
We, as the development team, have designed this instrument
so that players of every genre and level can easily enjoy truly high-quality sounds and
advanced functions in creating and performing music.
SOUND
Extraordinarily high-quality sound for a variety of applications
The MOX6/MOX8 draws on the high-quality sound of the famed MOTIF XS, used extensively by artists worldwide,
and is equipped with a wide range of dynamic sounds for use in virtually any music application.
FUNCTIONS
Instant, smooth translation from inspiration to final music composition
The MOX6/MOX8 features a powerful Performance Creator function which lets you combine your favorite Voice with
other Voices and drum parts, and perform with full rhythmic and chordal backing. You can also record your performances
as a Song or Pattern, simply by pressing the [REC] button from Performance mode—and then, after recording,
automatically move to the Song/Pattern mode for further editing, refining and completing the Song or Pattern.
This workflow is exceptionally smooth and transparent, and lets you create music quickly and easily as the inspiration hits.
Seamless music production with Cubase
The MOX6/MOX8 were developed giving maximum consideration to integration with the Cubase series DAW software made by
Steinberg (see page 8). We’ve enhanced and strengthened the remote control function in connection with Cubase,
letting you easily and conveniently control optional parameters on Cubase with the AI KNOB,
or by using control templates compatible with various VST instruments to easily control multiple parameters and
complex operations on software synthesizers directly from your hardware synthesizer keyboard.
DESIGN
Stylish design and professional look
We also designed the stylish exterior to reflect the professional-level sounds and sophisticated features of the MOX6/MOX8,
making it an instrument you’ll love to play, and one you’ll feel proud in showing off onstage.
Moreover, its value as a live performance instrument is made even greater by its portability.
We also took particular care in designing the size and external appearance to make it easy to use,
even when combined in a computer music system.

MOX6/MOX8 Main Features
 MOTIF XS Sound Engine feature
The wide range of dynamic and authentic MOTIF XS waveforms (such as the realistic sounds of acoustic piano,
electric piano, synthesizer, strings, wind instruments, drums) are all included in this instrument. The sophisticated XA
(Expanded Articulation) function has also been included, providing greater performance flexibility and acoustic
realism. It allows you to more effectively recreate realistic sound and natural performance techniques—such as
legato and trills—and provides other unique modes for random and alternate sound changes as you play. Moreover,
the instrument features new Arpeggio types for Drum Voices, as well as the existing MOTIF XS Arpeggio types, plus
an extensive effect system—including VCM (Virtual Circuitry Modeling) Effects, Master Effect, and Master EQ. In a
wide variety of ways, the MOX6/MOX8 truly enhances your music performance and creation.
 Easy-to-use user interface
You can select a desired Voice or Performance directly by using the sixteen number buttons. You can also call up
desired Voices or Performances according to the instrument type by using the Category Search function. This
instrument also provides a powerful, easy-to-use Performance Creator function, which lets you quickly and smoothly
create fully realized music, whenever the inspiration strikes you. Use it to easily create new Performances by using
favorite Voices you’ve found in the Voice mode.
 Comprehensive sequencer for creating Songs and Patterns
This instrument features a built-in sequencer which enables you to produce high-quality music, without the need of a
computer or any other devices. The sequencer features both Realtime recording, which records your performance
data as you play it, and Step recording, which is suitable for recording precise, mechanical phrases or other difficultto-execute passages. Moreover, you can record the Performance as a Song/Pattern simply by pressing the [REC]
button, and easily edit and refine your song to completion.
 Responsive, expressive keyboard
The MOX8 features an 88-key GHS keyboard. This feature provides authentic, realistic keyboard response—much
like the playing feel of an acoustic piano—with the lower keys being heavy in touch, the higher keys light, and all the
natural gradations in between. The MOX6 features a newly developed, 61-key, semi-weighted keyboard. The
keyboard has been designed and adjusted so that you easily and expressively play the rich variety of sounds of the
instrument.
 Stereo A/D INPUT [L]/[R] jacks
You can also connect various devices, such as microphone, guitar, or audio equipment, to the Input jacks of the
instrument, and have that audio input signal sound as a separate A/D input Part in the Voice/Performance/Song/
Pattern mode. Various parameters such as volume, pan, and effect can be set for this Part, and the sound is output
together with all the other Parts, letting you play and output the sound MOX6/MOX8 together with the external sound.
Also, you can create a vocoder sound by using the input signal from these jacks and the internal effect.
 USB Audio/MIDI interface
The USB terminal of the instrument serves as both a MIDI and audio interface—letting you record digitally the
instrument sound and the audio signal from the A/D INPUT [L]/[R] jacks to DAW software on a computer. You can also
output both the instrument sound and the DAW software input signal from the MOX6/MOX8.

The USB [TO HOST] terminal is used to connect this
instrument to the computer via the USB cable and allows you
to transfer MIDI data and audio data between the devices.
Unlike MIDI, USB can handle multiple ports via a single
cable. For information about the Port handled by the MOX6/
MOX8, see page 51.
The USB [TO DEVICE] terminal is used to connect this
instrument to a USB flash memory device via the USB cable.
This lets you save data created on this instrument to an
external USB flash memory device and load data from a
USB flash memory device to the instrument. Save/Load
operations can be performed in the File mode (page 57).
NOTE Only USB flash memory device can be recognized by this
instrument. Any other USB storage devices (such as hard disk
drive, CD-ROM drive and USB hub) cannot be used.
NOTE Though the instrument supports the USB 1.1 standard, you can
connect and use a USB 2.0 storage device with the instrument.
However, note that the transfer speed is that of USB 1.1.
4 MIDI [IN] / [OUT] / [THRU] terminals
MIDI [IN] is for receiving control or performance data from
another MIDI device, such as an external sequencer, letting
you control this instrument from the connected separate
MIDI device.
MIDI [OUT] is for transmitting all control, performance and
playback data from this instrument to another MIDI device,
such as an external sequencer.
MIDI [THRU] is simply for redirecting any received MIDI data
(via MIDI [IN]) to connected devices, allowing convenient
chaining of additional MIDI instruments.
5 FOOT SWITCH [ASSIGNABLE]/[SUSTAIN]
jacks
For connection of an optional FC3/FC4/FC5 Footswitch to the
[SUSTAIN] jack and a FC4/FC5 Footswitch to the
[ASSIGNABLE] jack. When connected to the [SUSTAIN]
jack, the Footswitch controls sustain. When connected to
[ASSIGNABLE], it can control one of various different
assignable functions.
6 [FOOT CONTROLLER] jack
For connection of an optional foot controller (FC7, etc.). This
jack lets you continuously control one of various different
assignable functions—such as volume, tone, pitch, or other
aspects of the sound.
7 OUTPUT [L/MONO] and [R] jacks
Line level audio signals are output via these phone jacks. For
monophonic output, use only the [L/MONO] jack.
8 [PHONES] (Headphone) jack
This standard stereo phones jack is for connection to a set of
stereo headphones. This jack outputs audio signals identical
to those from the OUTPUT [L/MONO] and [R] jacks
9 A/D INPUT [L] and [R] jacks
External audio signals can be input via these phone jacks
(mono phone plug).
Various devices such as microphone, guitar, bass, CD player,
synthesizer can be connected to these jacks and their audio
input signal can be sounded as the Audio Part of the Voice,
Performance, Song, or Pattern. In addition, you can use the
special Vocoder feature (page 37) by connecting a
microphone to one of these jacks and inputting your Voice to
the microphone.
Use mono phone plugs. For stereo signals (such as from
audio equipment), use both jacks. For mono signals (such
as from a microphone or guitar), use only one of these jacks
according to the “Mono/Stereo” parameter setting.
NOTE When using these jacks, make sure to confirm the “Mono/Stereo”
parameter setting which can be set in the following displays for
each mode:
• For the Voice mode: the VCE A/D display in the Utility mode
• For the Performance mode: the A/D IN display in Common Edit
• For the Song/Pattern mode: the A/D IN display in Mixing

Playing the keyboard in
the Voice mode
In the Voice Play display (the top display of the Voice mode),
you can select and play a single Voice. The Voices of this
instrument are divided into the following two types:
Normal Voice
Normal Voices are mainly pitched musical instrument type
sounds (piano, organ, guitar, etc.) that can be played over
the range of the keyboard.
Drum Voice
Drum Voices are mainly percussion/drum sounds that are
assigned to individual notes. These Voices are used to
perform rhythm parts.
This instrument features Banks for memorizing Voices. There
are basically three different types of Banks: Preset, User, and
GM. The contained Voices and features depend on the Bank
as described below.
Preset Banks
The Preset Banks contain a full set of specially programmed
Voices. Voices you've edited yourself cannot be saved in the
Preset Banks.
User Banks
The User Banks contain the Voices you have edited and
stored. By default, these are comprised of Preset Voices.
NOTICE
If a Voice in a User Bank (User Voice) is overwritten or replaced, that
User Voice will be lost. When you store an edited Voice, be careful not
to overwrite any important User Voices.
GM Bank
The GM Bank contains the Voices allocated according to the
GM standard.
In the Voice mode, a total of 15 Banks (Preset Bank 1 – 8,
User Bank 1 – 3, GM Bank, Preset Drum Bank, User Drum,
GM Drum Bank) are available. Each of these Banks includes
the Voices according to the Voice type. In the Voice Play
display, you can select the desired Voice from various Voice
Banks and play it.
NOTE For details about Voices, refer to “Basic Structure.” For a list of
the Preset Voices, refer to the separate Data List PDF file.
Selecting a Preset Voice
1 Press the [VOICE] button.
This calls up the Voice Play display. (The [VOICE] button
lamp lights.)
2 Select a Voice Bank with the BANK SELECT
[DEC]/[INC] buttons.

GM Voice
GM (General MIDI) is a worldwide standard for Voice
organization and MIDI functions of synthesizers and tone
generators. It was designed primarily to ensure that any Song
data created with a specific GM device would sound virtually
the same on any other GM device—no matter the manufacturer
or the model. The GM Voice bank on this synthesizer is designed
to appropriately play back GM Song data. However, keep in
mind that the sound may not be exactly the same as played by
the original tone generator.

Using the Arpeggio function
The Arpeggio function automatically triggers preset arpeggio
phrases, riffs, and rhythmic patterns according to the notes
you play.
It not only provides inspiration and full rhythmic passages
over which you can perform, it gives you quality MIDI data
you can use in creating Songs, or fully formed backing parts
to be used in your live performances. You can assign the
desired six Arpeggio Types to each Voice. You can also assign
the desired six Arpeggio Types to each Part of each
Performance/Song/Pattern and play back the Arpeggios of
up to four Parts simultaneously.
You can also set the Arpeggio playback method, Note range,
Velocity range and Play Effects to create your own original
grooves. What’s more, Arpeggio playback can be transmitted

8th note icons ( ) at the right of “ARP1” – “ARP6.” This means
that you can change the Arpeggio type by pressing the
[SF1] – [SF6] buttons as desired.
NOTE For information on setting the Arpeggio Type, refer to “Changing
the Arpeggio Type assignment” on page 29.
Keyboard Octave/Transpose setting
To shift the pitch range in playing the keyboard, use the
OCTAVE [-]/[+] buttons and TRANSPOSE [-]/[+] buttons.
IOctave
The OCTAVE [-]/[+] button lets you shift the pitch of the
keyboard in octaves, up to a maximum of three. For example,
you may want to shift the pitch down lower to get extra bass
notes, or shift up to get higher notes for leads and solos. The
OCTAVE [-]/[+] controls let you do this quickly and easily. The
range is from -3 to +3, with 0 being standard pitch. Pressing
the [-] and the [+] buttons together at the same time will
return the setting to the initial value (0).
The current octave range can be confirmed via the status of
the lamp of the OCTAVE [-]/[+] buttons. When set to one
octave down or up, the corresponding lamp lights. When set
to two octaves down or up, the corresponding lamp flashes
slowly. When set to three octaves down or up, the
corresponding lamp flashes quickly.
ITranspose
The TRANSPOSE [-]/[+] button lets you shift the pitch of the
keyboard in semitones (up to 11 semitones). This function
allows you to play in the same position and with the same
fingering, even if the Song data or another instrument player
is playing in a different key. The Transpose Up/Down controls
let you do this quickly and easily. Pressing the [-] and the [+]
buttons together at the same time will return the setting to the
initial value (0). When set to one semitone down or up, the
corresponding lamp lights.

Creating a new Performance
by using your favorite Voice
(Performance Creator)
A program in which multiple Voices (parts) are combined in
a layer, or in other configurations is referred to as a
“Performance.” Each Performance can contain up to four
different parts (Voices).
This instrument features a convenient Performance Creator
function which lets you create a new Performance by using
favorite Voices you’ve found in the Voice mode. This function
lets you copy parameter settings associated with the Voice
(such as Effects) to the Performance—allowing you to quickly
and easily come up with precisely the sound you want.
Performance Creator provides three convenient features:
Layer, Split, and Drum Assign.
Layer—Playing different Voices

Using the Arpeggio function
The Arpeggio function lets you trigger rhythm patterns, riffs
and phrases using the current Voice by simply playing notes
on the keyboard. In the Performance mode, each of four
Arpeggio types is assigned to each of four Parts. This means
four Arpeggio types can be played back simultaneously. Try
selecting different Performances and check out the various
Arpeggio types.
NOTE For details about Arpeggio, see the “Reference Manual” PDF
document.
Since the preset Performances already have their own
Arpeggio types pre-assigned, you can play the Arpeggio by
selecting the desired Performance, turning on the ARP [ON/
OFF] button, then pressing any note. Instructions on using
Arpeggio are basically the same as in the Voice mode.
You can turn Arpeggio playback on or off for each Part of the
Performance as described below.
1 Press the [PERFORMANCE CONTROL] button.

Changing the timbre of the Voice
Just as in the Voice mode, the sound of the Performance
(consisting of a maximum of four Parts or Voices) can be
edited via the Knobs in the Performance mode. There are
two ways to edit the Performance: editing the entire
Performance, and editing only one specific Part (Voice)
assigned to the Performance.
I To edit the entire Performance:
Turn the Knob in the Performance Play mode (called up via
only the [PERFORM] button) or Performance Common Edit
mode (called up via [PERFORM]  [EDIT]  [COMMON]).
I To edit a specific Voice of the current
Performance:
Turn the Knob in the Performance Part Edit mode (called up
via [PERFORM]  [EDIT]  [1] – [4]).
Recording in the
Performance mode
While experimenting and playing around with Arpeggios in
the Performance mode, you may find some rhythm patterns
and phrases that you like, and you may want to store them
for future recall. The best and easiest way to capture these is
to record your keyboard playing to a Song or Pattern.
Song and Pattern
Songs and Patterns are MIDI sequence data consisting of
up to 16 Tracks.
I Song
A Song on this instrument is effectively the same as a song
on a MIDI sequencer, and playback automatically stops at
the end of the recorded data.
I Pattern
In this instrument, the term “Pattern” refers to a relatively
short musical or rhythmic phrase — 1 to 256 measures —
which is used for looped playback. Therefore, once Pattern
playback starts, it continues until you press the [J] (Stop)
button.
Recording the melody and
Arpeggio playback to the Song
When a Song is selected as the destination of Performance
recording, you can record your keyboard playing with the
Arpeggio without having to worry about measure limits or
running out of recording space. It is a good idea, for example,
to record your keyboard playing, freely calling up various
Arpeggio types, then editing the Song later as necessary.
You may even want to keep the recorder ‘running’ as you
improvise, then listen back later and pick out the best parts
to create your final Song. Try recording as shown in the
instructions below.
1 In the Performance Play mode, select a Performance
for recording.
2 Press the ARP [ON/OFF] button so that the lamp
lights.

Recording Arpeggio playback to a
Pattern
If you record your keyboard playing along with Arpeggio
playback in the Performance mode to a Pattern, you can
quickly create full and complete rhythm patterns lasting just
a few measures. These short Patterns of MIDI sequence
data can be played back repeatedly in a loop and then
conveniently used as ‘building blocks’ for your original
Songs.
The Performance Recording to a Pattern operation is the
almost same as that of Recording to a Song, with the
exception of the settings below.
In the Performance Record display, set the “Section” and
“SectionLength” as well as the same settings as in
“Recording the melody and Arpeggio playback to the Song.”
Section
From A – P, select the Section which comprises the Pattern. If
you create several Sections, you can use them as rhythm
variations within a single Song.
Section Length
Set the length of the selected Section. Set the value to 1 – 4
according to the length of the current Arpeggio types.
After creating the Pattern Sections, program their playback
order to create a Pattern Chain. For details, see page 47.

Creating an original Song
This instrument features a built-in multi Track sequencer for
recording your keyboard performance as MIDI data. This
function by itself is enough to create full, complex multiinstrument arrangements and complete Songs.
Terminology
Song and Pattern
See page 34.
Track
This is a memory location on the sequencer where your
musical performances (made up of MIDI events) are stored.
The MOX6/MOX8 provides 16 Tracks, which correspond to
the 16 Parts of the Mixing.
Mixing
This is a program in which multiple Voices are assigned to
Parts for multi-timbral play in the Song and Pattern modes.
Each Mixing can contain up to 16 parts and a separate
Mixing can be created for each Song.
Realtime Recording
With Realtime recording, the instrument functions in the same
way as a MD recorder, recording the performance data as it
is played. This allows you to capture all the nuances of an
actual performance. Realtime Record features three available
methods: Replace, Overdub and Punch In/Out. Replace lets
you overwrite an already recorded Track with new data.
Overdub lets you add more data to a Track that already
contains data. Punch In/Out lets you re-record only over a
specific area of the Track.
Step Recording
With Step recording, you can compose your performance by
“writing” it down one event at a time. This is a non-realtime,
step recording method — similar to writing music notation
onto paper.
Song playback
You have already learned how to play back Songs on
page 18. In this section, you’ll learn how to use convenient
mute/solo functions during playback.
This lets you mute a specific Track or Tracks of the Song.

Splitting the sound between the MOX6/MOX8 and
an external tone generator by MIDI channel
Using the connection example shown above, you can play both
instruments and have them separately sound different parts—
for example, having your keyboard performance sound the
external instrument while the Song/Pattern plays the sounds of
the MOX6/MOX8. To use this feature, you must set the MOX6/
MOX8’s output channel and the external tone generator’s receive
channel to the same channel number. Check the following points
after turning the power on.
When playing the keyboard in the Voice mode or
Performance mode:
Check the MIDI transmit channel with the following operation:
[UTILITY]  [F6] MIDI  [SF1] CH (channel)  “KBDTransCh.”
If necessary, change this parameter to the same number as
the MIDI Receive Channel of the external MIDI instrument. In
the Voice play or Performance play, pressing the [TRACK]
button (so that the lamp lights) can also change the MIDI
Transmit Channel of the MOX6/MOX8. When you wish to sound
only the external tone generator, set the [Master Volume] control
to “0” or set Local Control to “off” with the following operation:
[UTILITY]  [F6] MIDI  [SF2] SWITCH  “LocalCtrl” = “off.”
For information on how to set the MIDI Receive Channel of the
external MIDI instrument, refer to the owner’s manual of the
external MIDI instrument.
When playing back a Song/Pattern or playing the keyboard
in the Song mode or Pattern mode:
Check the MIDI transmit channel for each Track with the
following operation: [SONG]/[PATTERN]  [F3] TRACK  [SF1]
CHANNEL  “OUT CH.” If necessary, change this parameter
to the same number as the MIDI Receive Channel of the external
MIDI instrument. Alternately, you can set the output destination
(Internal or external MIDI tone generator) for each Track from
the following display: [SONG]/[PATTERN]  [F3] TRACK 
[SF2] OUT SW. In this case, you’ll need to set the external MIDI
tone generator to multi-timbral operation and set the MIDI
Receive Channel for each part. For details, see the owner’s
manual of the external MIDI tone generator. Alternately, you can
have your keyboard performance split and assigned to
different MIDI channels by using the Zone settings in the Master
mode (page 55).

• While the computer is connected to the instrument, you
should wait for six seconds or more between these
operations: (1) when turning the power of the instrument off
then on again, or (2) when alternately connecting/
disconnecting the USB cable.
MIDI channels and MIDI ports
MIDI data is assigned to one of sixteen channels, and this
synthesizer is capable of simultaneously playing sixteen
separate Parts, via the sixteen MIDI channels. However, the
sixteen-channel limit can be overcome by using separate MIDI
“ports,” each supporting sixteen channels. While a single MIDI
cable is equipped to handle data over up to sixteen channels
simultaneously, a USB connection is capable of handling far
more—thanks to the use of MIDI ports. Each MIDI port can
handle sixteen channels, and the USB connection allows up to
eight ports, letting you use up to 128 channels (8 ports x 16
channels) on your computer. When connecting this instrument
to a computer using a USB cable, the MIDI ports are defined
as follows:
Port 1
The tone generator block in this instrument can recognize and
use only this port. When playing the MOX6/MOX8 as a tone
generator from the external MIDI instrument or computer, you
should set the MIDI Port to 1 on the connected MIDI device or
computer.
Port 2
This port is used to control the DAW software on the computer
from the MOX6/MOX8 by using the Remote Control feature.
Port 3
This port is used as the MIDI Thru Port. The MIDI data received
over Port 3 via the USB [TO HOST] terminal will be re-transmitted
to an external MIDI device via the MIDI [OUT] terminal. The
MIDI data received over Port 3 via the MIDI [IN] terminal will be
re-transmitted to an external device (computer, etc.) via the USB
[TO HOST] terminal.
Port 4
This port is used only for data communication of the MOX6/
MOX8 Editor. No other software or device can use this port.
Port 5
This port is used only for data communication of the MOX6/
MOX8 Remote Editor.
No other software or device can use this port. When using a
USB connection, make sure to match the MIDI transmit port
and the MIDI receive port as well as the MIDI transmit channel
and the MIDI receive channel. Make sure to set the MIDI port
of the external device connected to this instrument according
to the above information.
Audio channels
The audio signals of the MOX6/MOX8 can be output to the USB
[TO HOST] terminal and the OUTPUT [L/MONO]/[R] jacks.
When connecting to a computer, use the USB [TO HOST]
terminal. In this case, up to four audio channels (USB 1 – USB
4) are available. The output-to-channel assignments are made
in the [F5] USB I/O display of the Utility mode.
The audio signals of the MOX6/MOX8 can be input from the
USB [TO HOST] terminal and the A/D INPUT [L]/[R] jacks. Up
to two channels of audio can be input to the USB [TO HOST]
terminal. Set the output level by using the [DAW LEVEL] slider
on the MOX6/MOX8. The signals are output to the OUTPUT [L/
MONO]/[R] jack. Also, up to two audio channels can be input
to the A/D INPUT [L]/[R] jacks. The signal is sent to the A/D input
part of the MOX6/MOX8. For more details, see the “Reference

Setting up the DAW software on the computer
1 Set MIDI Thru to “on” on the DAW software.
By setting MIDI Thru to “on,” the MIDI data generated by
playing the keyboard and transmitted to the computer will be
returned back to the MOX6/MOX8. As shown in the example
below, the MIDI data transmitted from the MOX6/MOX8 then
recorded to the computer via MIDI channel 1 will be returned
back from the computer to the MOX6/MOX8 via MIDI channel
3 according to the setting of the recording Track. As a result,
the tone generator of the MOX6/MOX8 will sound the MIDI
data generated by playing the keyboard as MIDI data from
channel 3.
The instructions below show how to use this instrument as a
MIDI tone generator. In this case, actual MIDI sequence data
is transmitted from DAW software on the computer, allowing
you to avoid using software synths and save processing
power on your computer.

Troubleshooting
No sound? Wrong sound? When a problem like this occurs, please check the following points before assuming that the product
is faulty. Many problems can be solved by executing the Factory Set operation (page 19), after backing up your data to an USB
flash memory device (page 57). If the problem persists, consult your Yamaha dealer.
No Sound.
 Is this instrument properly connected to related external equipment (e.g., amplifier, speaker, headphone) via audio cables?
Since this instrument has no built-in speakers, you will need an external audio system or a set of stereo headphones to properly
monitor it (page 17).
 Is the power of this synthesizer and any external equipment connected to it turned on?
 Have you made all the appropriate level settings—including the Master Volume on this instrument and the volume settings on any
connected external equipment?
If the Foot Controller is connected to the [FOOT CONTROLLER] jack, operate the Foot Controller and check the sound volume.
 Check the Local Control parameter in the Utility mode.
When this instrument is used by itself and this parameter is set to off, no sound is produced even if you play the keyboard.
 Check the Direct Monitor Switch parameter in the Utility mode.
When this instrument is used by itself and this parameter is set to off, no sound is produced even if you play the keyboard.
 When the Performance/Song/Pattern produces no sound, is the “ArpPlyOnly” parameter of each Part turned on?
When this parameter is turned on, the corresponding Part produces sound only via Arpeggio playback.
 Are the MIDI volume or MIDI expression settings too low when using the external controller?
 Are the effect and filter settings appropriate?
If you are using the filter, try changing the cutoff frequency. Some cutoff settings may filter out all of the sound.
 Is “Vocoder” selected as the Insertion Effect Type of the Voice?
If so, set the parameters related to the AD Part and A/D INPUT connector to the appropriate values then play the keyboard while
speaking into the connected microphone. Check whether or not the A/D INPUT [GAIN] Knob on the rear panel is set to the minimum
position.
 Are the volume or expression settings too low?
 Are the parameter settings such as Element Switch, Part Switch, Note Limit and Velocity Limit appropriate?

 When playing the keyboard in the Performance/Song/Pattern mode produces no sound, has a Voice been properly assigned to each
Part?
 When Song/Pattern playback produces no sound, are the output channel of each Track in the play mode and the receive channel of
each Part in the Mixing mode set appropriately?
 When Song/Pattern playback produces no sound, is the Velocity Offset setting of the Groove appropriate?
No sound from the A/D INPUT jack
 Is the switch of the microphone turned on?
 Check the microphone type. Make sure to use a dynamic microphone.
 Is the cable between the microphone or audio equipment and this instrument properly connected?
 Is the A/D INPUT [GAIN] knob turned fully counter-clockwise (to the minimum)?
 Is the A/D INPUT [ON/OFF] button turned on?
 Check whether or not the connection status of the A/D INPUT [L]/[R] matches the “Mono/Stereo” parameter.
 Check whether or not the “Mic/Line” parameter is set to the appropriate value.
When the output level of the connected equipment (such as a microphone, guitar, bass) is low, set this parameter to “mic.” When the
output level of the connected equipment (such as a synthesizer keyboard, CD player) is high, set this parameter to “line.”
 Are the volume settings of the A/D Input Part too low?
 Are the effect settings appropriate?
 Is the output setting of the A/D Input Part set appropriately?
 Check whether or not the Vocoder Effect is selected.
When Vocoder is selected as the Insertion Effect for the current Voice or for Part 1 of the current Performance/Song/Pattern, the audio
signal input from the A/D INPUT jacks may produce no sound depending on the parameter settings.
Playback continues without stopping.
 When the ARP [ON/OFF] button is turned on, press it so that its lamp is turned off.
 When in the Song mode or Pattern mode, press the [J] (Stop) button.
 When the click sound continues, check the following parameter setting. Set this parameter to something other than “all” because this
setting always plays back the click sound regardless of the sequencer status.
Distorted sound.
 Are the effect settings appropriate?
Use of an effect at certain settings may produce distortion.

 Have any or all of the effect types been set to “thru” or “off”?
 When this occurs in the Performance mode/Song mode/Pattern mode, check whether the Insertion Switch (INS SW) parameters are
set properly or not.
The Edit Indicator appears, even when parameters are not being edited.
 Keep in mind that even though the Edit mode is not active, simply moving a Knob/Slider or playing back the Song/Pattern changes the
current Voice, Performance, or Mixing, causing the Edit Indicator to appear.
Cannot start the Arpeggio.
 Check whether the ARP [ON/OFF] button is turned on or off.
 When a User Arpeggio type is selected, does the currently selected Arpeggio actually contain data?
 Are the Arpeggio related parameters such as Note Limit and Velocity Limit set appropriately?
 When this situation occurs in the Performance/Song/Pattern mode, check the Arpeggio Switch parameter.
If this parameter for the current Part is set to off, Arpeggio playback will not be triggered by your keyboard performance even if the
ARP [ON/OFF] button is turned on.
 Is the MIDI Sync parameter set to “internal” or “auto” (using internal clock)?
Cannot stop the Arpeggio.
 When Arpeggio playback does not stop even if you release the key, set the Arpeggio Hold parameter to “off.”
The Voice assigned to the Performance produces a different sound from the one in the Voice mode.
 This is normal because the Voice sound is determined by the parameter settings in the Performance mode.
To solve this problem, you will need to apply the same parameter settings as those used in the Voice mode via the following three
steps.
1. Set the “P.WithVce” (Parameter With Voice) parameter to “on” for a certain Part then reselect the same Voice. The settings of some
Voice Common parameters will be applied to the Performance Part.
2. Execute the Voice Copy Job in the Performance Job mode.
This Job copies the System Effect, Master Effect and Master EQ settings in the Voice mode to the Performance Common
parameters.
3. Set the Reverb Send Level and Chorus Send Level to the desired value (same as in the Voice mode) manually.
The Song/Pattern cannot be started even when pressing the [F] (Play) button.
 Does the selected Song or Pattern (phrase) actually contain data?
 Is the [DAW REMOTE] button turned on?
 Is the MIDI Sync parameter set to “internal” or “auto” (using internal clock)?

Song/Pattern (Phrase) cannot be recorded.
 Is there enough free memory for recording?
The total memory capacity determines the number of Songs/Patterns (phrases) that can be recorded. For example, if the memory
contains Songs/Patterns (phrases) that use up a large amount of memory, the memory may become full even though the available
Pattern or Song numbers are not all used.
Cannot enter the Pattern Job mode/Pattern Mixing mode even when pressing the [JOB] button in the
Pattern mode.
 Check whether the instrument is in the Pattern Chain mode or not.
If so, exit from the Pattern Chain mode, then press the [JOB] button or [MIXING] button.
The drum sound is wrong or unexpected when changing the transpose value in the Song/Pattern Play
mode.
 This is normal. Changing the transpose setting while playing a Drum Voice will produce different sounds for the same keys played.
Data communication between the computer and this instrument does not work properly.
 Check whether the Port settings on the computer are appropriate or not.
 Check whether or not the MIDI IN/OUT parameter is set to the appropriate value.
 This problem may be solved by reducing the computer load. To do this, set the USB Audio Output Channel to “2ch” in the following
display. If the setting is changed in the display, press the [ENTER] button and then restart the instrument.
The sound is not produced properly even when playing back the Song data on the computer or the MIDI
instrument connected to this instrument.
 Make sure to set this instrument to the Song mode or Pattern mode.
The Voice mode or Performance mode may not produce the proper sound even when playing back Song data on the MIDI
instrument or the computer connected to this instrument.
MIDI bulk data transmission/reception does not work properly.
 Is the Receive Bulk parameter set to on?
 When receiving MIDI bulk data transmitted via the Bulk Dump function and recorded to the external MIDI device, you need to set the
MIDI Device Number to the same value as when transmitting.
 When transmission does not work properly, is the device number of the MIDI instrument connected to this instrument set to match the
Device Number Parameter in the Utility mode?
Cannot save data to the external USB flash memory device
 Is the USB flash memory device being used write protected? (Write-protect should be set to off for saving data.)
 Is the USB flash memory device being used properly formatted?
Cannot enter the Edit mode
 Is Category Search turned on?
Turn off Category Search then press the [EDIT] button.
