I have a Yamaha MOXF but for some reason Cubase doesn’t have an MOXF MIDI Device file to import. So I used the MOX which is close to the MOFX but does not have all the patches. So I exported the proper patch script from my MOFX Tools Librarian. This is a .txt file. How do I get this into the MOX MIDI device that I’ve imported into Cubase?
I explored the MIDI Devices setup but it looks for an XML file when trying to import a setup.
Anyone know how to do this? Thanks!
note: don’t confuse MOXF with MOX - they are different instruments :>)
Thanks Alexis! I found it in:
So “inactive” is your chopped liver. What is really cool is that the file that the Librarian creates includes all the user banks with all of my current user presets. This way whenever I create use presets I can just drop that exported script into the folder and it appears in Cubase. Sweet.
If you install the vst editor it has all the patches for the mox, probably the moxf too.
If you find a patch file they need to be put in your steinberg folder, somewhere in there is a folder for scripts I believe, been a long time. You put it there then it shows up in the list in midi manager.
Thank you for the answer. I need a patch file (a simple text document i think), that should be put in that script folder. Without it, “midi device” list doesn’t show “mox” voice…I have already installed the vst editor.
I’ll put this in here for Mac users… I had to search for a while to figure out where to put the script file for it to show up in the Install Midi Device list. Won’t work by going the normal Users / Library route. The correct way to locate the right folder is:
Finder / Go
While Go is selected, press the Alt/Options key and Library will toggle/appear in the list. Choose it.
Yeah, as written above, for Windows users, the correct path is:
Here there are the .xml (or. txt) files for each keyboard. I have a lot of patch files (Motif, MO, PSR, CP ecc.) here but no one for MOX…i just need this .xml (or .txt) file. I think it should be something like “Yamaha MOX6MOX8.txt”
I am still struggling with this - using Cubase Elements 9 and windows 10. The only place that I can find the scripts is within the Steinberg folder c:/programfiles/steinberg/cubase elements le9/scripts/patchnames/inactive where all the files are txt. My new patch file is for the roland XP30 so I copy it into the roland folder, go back to cubase, midi device manager and its not listed. The only import option seems to be import setup which is looking for an xml file. I have tried converting the file to xml but brings up an unsupported message (Libre office).
If I try the route described in other messages via users there are no steinberg folders so I guess the file structure has changed over the years.
the correct path is C:\Users\your username\AppData\Roaming\Steinberg\your version of Cubase\Scripts\Patchnames\inactive\Roland as stated in above replies, but make sure you are showing hidden files when browsing for the file location. I just did this for my Roland XV-5050 after a Cubase reinstall, inserting the .txt-file, and it works.The AppData folder will not show unless you do this.
I am back again. I entered every single instrument into the Yamaha PSR-A3000.txt file. Most of the patches work on my PSR-A3000, except few of them. For example: S.Art! Vibes&JazzGuitar in Percussion Voice category, does NOT get mapped to the PSR keyboards correctly. The cubase track is unable to trigger S.Art! Vibes&JazzGuitar on my PSR-3000 although all the setting are correct based on the DATA List Document published by Yamaha for the keyboard.
Also none of the voices in the Oriental voice category work. There are two scenarios:
