MOXF Voice bank loading question

Unread post by The Cat » Tue Apr 16, 2019 6:17 pm

Hi there

Loving my new synth but have come up against a problem I don't know how to solve yet.

I can load the vintage sounds library no problem - it takes up USR3 bank and I have been able to copy the voices I want into USR1 which I am trying to populate.

I have also taken a backup of everything on my USB stick.

The issue is that the Premium Sounds library I want to install says it will take up all 3 USR banks.

How can I pick invidiual sounds from this library and copy them into my old USR1 library I am trying to build up? If it takes over all 3 USR banks I have nowhere to copy it to to save it alongside the older voices I want to add it to.

Hope that makes sense and thanks for any help.

Not sure I am remembering this correctly as it was a long time since I had the MOXF but, I think it is a case of having to load all and then deleting what you don't need. I don't remember there being a way to load single voices from a pack. But like I say, it was a while back so I may be remembering that completely wrong?

Looks like I will need to buy the Librarian software it sounds like it will do what I need.

Thanks for the reply.

Yeah if that is the John Melas editor/librarian you are talking about it is well worth the money. Download the free version first though to see if it definitely does what you need http://www.jmelas.gr/motif/products.php

Yes that's the one I am looking at - looks like it - I can copy and paste voices between different files but the demo version blocks you sending to the instrument by the look of it.

Looks worth the money from what I can see.

Think I have stumbled on the answer for me.

The free downloadable Premium package takes up all 3 USR banks so I think I can load that first and then Load the Vintage Keyboard bank I bought as that only takes up USR3. Premium package has nothing I want in USR 3 so think I will try this tomorrow.

More than enough sounds between the PRE banks and those 3 USR banks if it works.

Well that's a pain. It appears even if a library only fills one bank it also factory resets the other two.

Oh well I've ordered a USB cable so will buy the software next week.

Would have been nice even to have the option to store voices in the Flash Memory while you change banks maybe they've addressed this in newer models.

Still delighted with my purchase though.

Just one of those things with Yamaha gear. Often they do things that seem counter intuitive to us. There "usually" is a good reason behind it..from a manufacturing point of view but that doesn't always lead to a good user experience.

Keep us posted on how it goes with the John Melas editor/librarian.

Hi again Saul

I actually found out how to do it just now. When you are about to load the library before executing on the left hand side of the window it has always said 'All' and I've never tried to change it. Using the wheel gives you lots of options one being 1Bankvoice. Then you can pick USR1, USR2, USR3 or USRD.

I am testing this right now and will hopefully confirm you can load individual USR Banks from different libraries which is exactly what I want.

I think as well as the Bank option there was a single Voice one too which is also handy.

Anyway will tidy this up and confirm in a bit.

That sounds like very good news! I only ever loaded the Bosendorfer Imperial Grand on my MOXF when I had it so I never really went into the whole process in-depth.

All confirmed.

I am now a very happy chappy. Got the First Two banks full of the Premium Content Library Inspiration Banks 1&2 and the 3rd Bank is the Vintage Instruments USR 3 Bank.

I've not done the individual voices yet I've got everything I want now but I will experiment later on if I need any more.

I will still get the software but at a later date there is no rush for it now.
