Tracking out a Workstation...

I need to track out some songs from a Motif ES7 into Sonar.

How do I get the tracks to stay synced up? I'm assuming I need to run a Midi cable from the Motif into my DAW, but other then that I'm not too sure. (Will the Motif start playing when I press record, or do I control Sonar from the Motif or what...)

We needed to record three songs the other day and didnt have the time to sit down and try and figure it out. I want to be ready for next time, becasue now I have to go back in and line up the tracks. (It's not that big of a deal, because theres only 3 songs at 4-6 tracks per song.) But I dont want to have to do that again.

You could use MTC to trigger the motif.

I leafed through the Motif manual and read a little about MTC but didnt see much info.

I'm not familiar. How is it used and how do I set it up? Do I need two midi cables for in and out?

you would have to set the motif to slave to the computer. connect a midi cable out from the computer in to the motif. i'm not familiar with sonar but you should have to send midi clock from sonar. probably push play on the motif and it should be in stand by mode. start the comp and it should sync.
