Connecting the 9000Pro to a computer (via the TO HOST terminal or the MIDI termi-
nals) lets you take advantage of the enormous processing power and editing ﬂexibility
of computer-generated music.
Connection can be done in one of two ways:
• Using the 9000Pro MIDI terminals
• Using the TO HOST terminal
■ Using the 9000Pro MIDI terminals
Using a MIDI interface device installed in the personal computer, connect the MIDI
terminals of the personal computer and the 9000Pro.
For the connection cable, use a special MIDI cable.
● When the computer has a MIDI interface installed, connect the MIDI OUT terminal of the per-
sonal computer to the MIDI IN terminal of the 9000Pro.
Set the HOST SELECT switch to “MIDI.”
● When using a MIDI interface with a Macintosh series computer, connect the RS-422 terminal
of the computer (modem or printer terminal) to the MIDI interface, then connect the MIDI OUT
terminal on the MIDI interface to the MIDI IN terminal of the 9000Pro, as shown in the diagram
below. Set the HOST SELECT switch on the 9000Pro to “MIDI.”
• When the HOST SELECT switch is set in the “MIDI” position, input and output to the TO
HOST terminal is ignored.
• When using a Macintosh series computer, set the MIDI interface clock setting in the
application software to match the setting of the MIDI interface you are using. For details,
carefully read the owner’s manual for the software you are using.
● When the computer has a USB interface, use the Yamaha UX256.

• When using the 9000Pro as a
16-channel multi-timbral sound
source, make sure to connect
the other MIDI device to the

• You can connect a MIDI device
to the MIDI B IN terminal; how-
ever, in this case, the 9000Pro
cannot be used as a multi-tim-
bral sound source, since the
MIDI Receive Mode for the
MIDI B port (page 176) cannot
be set to “XG/GM.”
