Recently I got a Motif ES rack where I installed 2 PLG150-AN (coming from a S90ES I sold).

I'm wondering if Studio Manager can let me program those PLG cards. Is there AN Expert Editor avaliable for OSX?

Thanks

Download page link: AN1X Editor for Mac

If you have AN1X EDITOR and you go to the SETUP pulldown, you will notice that you can select “PLG150AN Mode”.

Whether or not the Studio Manager will work properly under Mac 10.6, is unknown. You will shortly be one of only a few who will test and find out. I can tell you no one is testing this this currently, so post your results. You stepping back into 2003...!

Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately AN1x Edit is just for MacOS. I have an old Macintosh running MacOS9 and OMS. I'll give it a try. By the way, I remember that AN Expert Editor was more indicated to edit PLG-150AN, because it can generate .ANS files that can be directly loaded by the board installed on Motif ES Rack.

Now, what if I wanted to edit PLG150-AN under Windows 10? I installed both Multi Editor and Voice Editor. When I attempted to install also Motif ES rack USB/MIDI drivers, a dialog box alerted me that no device was connected and the installation was aborted.

Is there a way to show AN Expert Editor window inside Motif ES Rack Voice Editor or the in advance driver installation is compulsory?
Thanks

p.s. There's no PLG150-AN mode in AN1x Edit. This command is avaliable in AN Expert Editor... that's the one I would like to use.

Here is the download for PLG150-AN Expert Editor for Windows 95/98/ME/2000/XP:

https://usa.yamaha.com/support/updates/52079_en.html

It apparently runs fine on Windows 7, at least.

In the meantime I succeeded finding AN Expert Editor 1.2.2 through Motifator Forum.

Now, the hard part... I must recollect all the rememberings because in the past I used it with S90ES and 2 PLG150-AN that now are inside a Motif ES Rack.
Apparently the mechanism is the same, but I suspect that there's something different in how the software manages sys-ex data transmission and in how the instrument manages the received data.

Hi Guys, There is also a CTRL editor that runs on modern machines as well.
