Can DX7II-FD(D) or DX7 Voice Data be Played by a PLG150-DX Installed in a MOTIF ES?

Last Update: 10/08/2010

If the PLG150-DX is installed in a MOTIF ES, DX7II-FD(D) and DX7 voice data can be loaded via bulk reception and played as board custom voices (the same procedure applies to the S90 ES, MOTIF, and S90).


MOTIF ES Settings :

1. Press the [UTILITY] button to go to the Utility mode.

2. Press [F5];MIDI > [SF4]:OTHER and set the MIDI IN/OUT item in the display to MIDI.

3. Next, press the [SF1]:CH button and set the DeviceNo. item in the display to a setting other than off.
NOTE: System exclusive messages cannot be transmitted or received when the Device Number is set to off.

4. Press the [VOICE] button to go to the Voice mode, and select the plug-in board bank.

5. Press the [F2]:BANK button and set the bank to 035/000 (Board Custom Voice Bank).

6. Press the [F1];PLAY button to return to the Voice Play mode.

(Refer to page 92 of the DX7II-FD(D) owners manual.)

1. Press [PERFORMANCE] > [EDIT].

2. Press the [32/64] button as many times as necessary until the MIDI Out Voice display appears.

3. Use the CURSOR [<] [>] buttons to position the cursor at >1-32.

4. Press the [+1(YES)] button. The Are you sure? confirmation prompt will appear. Press the [+1(YES)] button again to begin bulk transmission of 32 internal voices.


Bulk Transmission from the DX7

(Refer to pages 25 ~ 26 of the DX7 owners manual.)

1. Press the [FUNCTION] button.

2. Press the [8] button as many times as necessary until the FUNCTION CONTROL : SYS INFO display appears, then press the [YES/+1] button to set this parameter to AVAIL.

3. Press the [8] button so that FUNCTION CONTROL : MIDI TRANSMIT? appears. Press the [YES/+1] button to begin bulk transmission of 32 internal voices.


CAUTION: Before turning off the MOTIF ES power it will be necessary to save the board custom voice data to a SmartMedia card or external USB memory device as a Plug-in All Bulk File (refer to Plug-in All Bulk on page 269 of the MOTIF ES owners manual).

TIP: You can set up the Auto Load function to automatically load the Plug-in All Bulk File from a SmartMedia card or external USB memory device whenever the MOTIF ES power is turned on.
(Refer to Automatically Load Files at Power On (Auto Load) on page 135 of the MOTIF ES owners manual.)
