Yamaha Motif XS8. I have problem with the voice bank.... What should I do?

by Vima
(Boston, MA, US)

When I click on "voice" and then "Bass", the sound list is not bass, but "sax". And when I click on "organ", the sound list is "bass". This is so weird.

Anybody know how to fix this? I feel so confuse every time I want to select a particular sound.

Motif ES7 buttons acting crazy
by: Will

This is my problem. (Motif ES7)I have the sound on Full grand and when I go to press the utility button, it changes the sound to Ba:Funk Finger. Why is it doing that?

Preset Problem
by: Scott601

You are not having a problem. When using the words "piano" "keyboard" "organ" etc. those are categories. Press the Category Search button and you're fixed. The keyboard is functioning properly.

Same here
by: Scott601

I have the same problem now. Selecting a preset randomly selects a bank. Posting things like 'HOPE THIS HELPS' is USELESS and a time waster. I performed a factory reset, and it did nothing.

Yamaha Motif XS8 bank issue
by: Valentin

Hello, I have the same issue - i tried to reset it to the factory default, but it did not help. Is there a solution for this or it is wrong factory programming?

Dear Vima: Go to your Owner's Manual for Reset/Initialize instructions and apply. It just may return your unit to normal condition. Hope this helps. Please post a follow-up comment if it does so other Forum participants can learn from your experience. Thanks.
