Updated Jaws Scripts for Motif Editors

February 1, 2012

Some of you may know that Arturas Lenksas maintains a set of Jaws scripts for several of the Motif editor programs written by John Melas. Since I routinely receive requests for info about the editors, this post will contain some basic info to get you started with them.

The editors are programs that run on a Windows PC. Together with scripts, they provide an accessible way to control many functions of Yamaha Motif keyboards and modules. The editors do not make the Motifs “talk”. The editors are not a screen reader for the Motifs.

To use the editors, you must have a supported model of Motif and a supported version of Jaws.

The following Motif models are supported:

  • Motif XF: all models
  • Motif XS: both keyboards and the XS Rack
  • S series: S70 XS, S90 XS, and S90 ES
  • Motif ES: both keyboards and the ES Rack
  • MO: MO6 and MO8

The editor and scripts combination is not compatible with any models of the Motif classic or the MoX.

The scripts are designed to work with Jaws 10 or later.

The editorsmake the following activities possible:

  • Load new samples and voices in to the Motif.
  • Organize your existing voices, performances, master setups, arps, waveforms, and more.
  • Customize existing instrument voices (instruments and drum kits), or create new voices from scratch.
  • Customize existing performances, or create new performances (splits, layers, backing arps).
  • Edit all of the mixing settings of Songs and Patterns.
  • Create Master Setups, giving you quick access to your voices, performances, songs, etc, when in a live situation.

The editors and the scripts are both commercial products. Both can be run as demos, allowing you to try them before you buy.

To get started, download the editors from here.

Then, download the most recent version of the scripts here.

  3. Wow! At last I got a blog from where I be able
    to really obtain helpful information regarding my study and knowledge.

  4. I know this website provides quality depending articles and extra stuff, is there any other web site which
    offers such data in quality?

  5. No matter if some one searches for his required thing, thus
    he/she wants to be available that in detail, thus that thing is maintained over here.

  6. But if you truly want to transform your i – Pod into an engine of extreme personal expression,
    why not customise it. He gave no evidence as to where Obama was born but decided he had a magic trick that would endear him to the public.
    Games actually include buttons to lean left or right, so it is hard to call
    this hacking.
