Installed mac FW driver v1.7.3, Midi driver 1.3.2, and stand alone editor v1.6.5.
Hookup via USB MIDI works with the Stand Alone Editor and Cubase 7.5.
After installing the FW card, Yamaha FW16E shows up in the Mac OSX system profiler.
Hook up is via TrippLIte FW 400 to 800 cable.
I can audition sounds from within the Stand Alone Editor by selecting presets with Audition button clicked On.
MIDI is set to mLan in the Utility.
Can't play notes with on-screen editor keyboard.
The Motif icon in is grayed out in the AudioMidi Setup Utility
The Yamaha USB-MIDI in System Preferences opens but is grayed out.
Same with the Yamaha Steinberg FW app in System Preference.
In Cubase, I receives a Port Open error message. In the MIDI track output: Yamaha Motif Rack missing. 1913822097.
My firmware #: 1.04.
Downloaded IEEE Firmware Updater V107-2 Mac.
Installation barely begins and comes to a complete halt as the Firmware app itself is grayed out, and does not identify my Rack XS.
Hook up USB cable. The Motif icon becomes live in the AudioMidi Setup Utility.
What am I missing?
I'm a first time Motif user. The Rack XS arrived yesterday. As you can imagine, I'm eager to use the 16 audio channels in Cubase.
Thank you for any assistance.
