Thanks for the thread. Very interesting. So far, I have seen no evidence that the XS is any better sonically than the Motif ES or S90-ES. Plus, the XS doesn't support plug-in cards, no breath controller input...

2. No mention of PLG boards. Did they drop support for these? I would not want to give up my FM and VA cards.

Well since Yamaha owns Steinberg the CuBase push is no surprise, though I agree with you - I'm a Sonar fan too.
Two things that bothers me. 1. Cubase, Cubase, Cubase. They seem to be pushing for tighter integration with Cubase which is fine if you use Cubase. I use Logic, Sonar and Live. 2. No mention of PLG boards. Did they drop support for these? I would not want to give up my FM and VA cards.

I am not sure what this means.:confused: Sure, they are giving away Cubase LE (it came with my MM6), but I dont see how it can be integrated better with one particular software brand. It all works in the same way, unless there is something I am missing.
Also available later this week will be the AI ( Advanced Integration) extensions for Cubase. These will install in Cubase AI, Cubase Studio and Cubase 4.
The AI Motif XS extensions do several things:
-- They allow the importing of songs stored in Motif XS format (in Motif XS All files or All Song files) directly into Cubase.
-- When using the AI Firewire driver, the extensions automatically make all the connections ( both MIDI and Audio) between the computer and Motif XS via Firewire.
-- They also include Cubase Project templates for using the Motif XS with Cubase.
