Cubase 13 Yamaha Motif XS setup


I’ve just upgraded to Cubase 13 on my Windows 10 PC.

I own a Yamaha Motif Xs8 with inbuilt fw soundcard. I haven’t used it with Cubase for ages but want to start developing compositions using the Motif built in ‘performances’ and record them into Cubase, as a basic starting point.

I recall that it used to be a relatively simple task to hook up the Motif XS to Cubase, sync the tempo and recording sart and end points but I can’t, for the life of me, remember settings I need to choose on both my Motif Xs8 or Cubase in terms of MIDI.

If anybody is using a Yamaha Motif XS together with Cubase and are able to talk me through the basic settings setup I’d be really grateful if you could help me out.

I’m certain it used to be so simple. It’s amazing how quickly you forget when you step away for a while.

Thanks for taking time to consider my plight. Hope someone will be kind enough to respond.
