I have a Motif XF8 which I’m trying to connect to Cubase 7 via the Steinberg CI2+ interface. I am running everything on a MacBook Pro: OS X 10.8.4. My Motif firmware is version 1.30 and I have downloaded and installed the latest CI2+ driver, with my Yamaha Steinberg USB driver showing 1.8.3. After getting no response to my question on the motifator forums, I decided I would post here, as well - particularly as this is probably more a Steinberg/Cubase issue than a Yamaha/Motif issue.
Having located previous posts and screenshots for port setups in the motifator forums, I’m pretty convinced that something is going wrong in my Device Setup - Midi Ports where rather than seeing my Motif listed for all Ports 1-4 in the I/O sections, I am instead seeing my Steinberg CI2+ listed in Port 1 with YAMAHA MOTIF XF 8 then also listing below this as Port 1 and then also Ports 2 & 3 (so no Port 4 appearing at all). As this really doesn’t correspond to instructions I’ve seen, I believe this might be the root of my problem, but I don’t see how I can change these settings (edit/modify/add ports, etc.).
So far as I can tell, my VST Connections appear to be setup correctly with both my Inputs and Outputs tabs showing a stereo bus to my CI2+.
Ultimately, my intention is to use the VST module within Cubase and in that I have attempted to setup both the USB ports and the VSTi audio routing ports but the usual setup seems to call for a Port 4 for the former and the latter only lists my CI2+ for L/R.
Perhaps some of my settings are correct and others not, but after going back and forth trying to change things, I still can’t seem to get things to work correctly. I am attaching a jpg pastiche of my key Cubase settings (hopefully the image/settings are visible). I would appreciate any advice to get me started.
Thanks in advance for any advice/suggestions.
