[ddots-l] Re: motif

Should be possible.  Things to check out:

1 - One or other of your devices (sequencer or PC) needs to be the timing
master and one the slave.  Check your hardware sequencer to see what timing
options it provides (MTC, MIDI Time Code will probably the easiest road to
go down) and decide which device is going to be the master;

2 - The Sonar Help system has a number of very good step-by-step examples
when using Sonar as either the master or the slave for this kind of work, so
I'd encourage you to have a good read;

3 - In Sonar, set up 16 MIDI tracks, each with its own MIDI channel and arm
them for recording from the MIDI In port that your sequencer is attached to;

4 - What happens next depends on which device is acting as the master.  If
the sequencer is the master, you'll press R to record in Sonar, then Sonar
will pause until you press the Play button on your sequencer.  If Sonar's
the master you'll probably have to perform some operation on the sequencer
before telling Sonar to record

Best wishes.

Hi Tim,

When I purchased the motif (I can't think how many years ago, it was from 
the first batch of Motif modules to be sent to the UK), there really wasn't 
anything to match its Library of quality patches.

I've not tried using it with Sonar yet.

I have a hardware Sequencer which I used to use with my Motif, I'd like to 
be able to record these sequencer tracks on to Sonar in real time as my 
sequencer has no USB. Is it possible to record a multi tracked sequenced 
project straight to Sonar using midi in real time?
