Yamaha MOXF Quick Setup Cheatsheet

I've created this page as a quick reference from the Yamaha MOXF Reference Manual, but I also have created a single page printable .PDF for easy printing. NOTE: This is assuming that your Yamaha MOXF configurations are still at the factory settings, since each field is ultimately editable by the musician.

If none of these settings makes sense to you, I suggest these four detailed articles at YamahaSynth.com on recording audio and MIDI with the MOXF:

  1. MOXF Basic Audio Recording Part I
  2. MOXF Basic Audio Recording Part II
  3. MOXF Basic Audio Recording Part III
  4. MOXF Basic MIDI Recording to Cubase
