Motif 6. When turned on, reads 'now checking plug in broad'. What's wrong?

If you see this message for only a short period of time, then this is normal. The plug-in boards are options that you can add to your Motif 6 to expand sounds/functionality. The first thing the Motif does is do a self check on the main keyboard first, then the plug-in boards. If the message just stays and does not go away, then there could be something wrong with either the optional plug in boards, or the main board the plug-in boards plug into. Make sure the option boards have not come loose, or have become damaged. Check the option board connectors.

What kind of voltage regulator is good Yamaha Motif XF8? (-8.25% and +4.2% of 120V)

A voltage "regulator" would only limit the voltage from going above a set amount - it wouldn't do anything for a power dip. To protect against that you really need an Uninterruptable Power Supply (UPS) which would switch to battery power in case of a power dip. Do you really think you're home electrical system is that unstable? Are your problems happening in different locations?

How do i record drums from drum kit

Hello nastyneph320:
Computer connectivity (via USB, Ethernet or the FW16E FireWire option) and DAW integration features like 8 zone Master mode, DAW remote control and cross platform editors let you seamlessly integrate the Motif with any DAW software, including the bundled Cubase AI software.

Translated it means that you can use USB, Ethernet, or FireWire connection to your PC and use DAW or Cubase AI software for recording. But I'm pretty sure you could use some other type of software for recording as long as it accepts your Keyboard.

Don't forget to vote with a thumbs up if this helped.

Mbox problem (no input,output)

i'm running os 10.5.6 w/ protools 8.0 and the original mbox. i had the same problem. protools opened and seemed to work except there was no sound from either analog outputs or headphones. this worked for me:
1. shut down computer
2. unplugged all usb cables except keyboard/mouse
3. restarted computer
4. re-plugged usb cable from computer to mbox
5. opened protools session
6. hit play and now i'm hearing sound and everything seems normal.

i hope this helps everyone else

Protools mbox2 issue

it doesnt sound like its the mbox more maybe the protools install. But as far as the cable goes can you tell me if you can ping the mbox throught the 1394 connection. If you cant ping it then damage may have been caused to the unit and it may need to be serviced. I fix my own M-box's but in my store it only costs around $50usd to fix almost all problems with a mbox2

I have the same problem. Usually it will work when I reboot the computer. The trick is once you get the mbox working with the phantom power on, is to not turn off the phantom power during your session; the duration in which you use the mbox at that given time before shutting it down. You can switch the phantom off and it won't shut off, but if you press it back on, it may and for me more than half of the time it does shut off. I have a new problem with my mbox. I can't hear play back, even though I can hear sound from either input. Any suggestions?
