How can I integrate Studio One 3.5 to recognize an old Yamaha 'Classic' Motif's voices/patches/presets?

I am trying to integrate Studio One 3.5 with a Yamaha 'Classic' Motif 7 and would like to be able to have the ability to select voices by name/bank in Presonus’ Studio One software like I was able to do previously in Cakewalk’s Sonar (via saving to a .ins instrument definition file). Is anyone aware of if there a way (or a utility) that can help accomplish this integration into Studio One?

I’ve currently set up my Motif as both a ‘keyboard’ and a ‘control surface’ in Studio One and it can, indeed, read and record the Motif’s MIDI notes (including the data generated by modulation wheel movements), but the real issue is that once the MIDI notes are recorded I can’t go back out (thru Studio One) to my Motif to select/retrieve its voices for later use/replacement, as there appears to be no voice/bank/patch recognition detectable by Studio One. I know the Motif’s an antiquated beast, but since Sonar could do it in every version I’ve ever used (again, via a .ins instrument definition file), I’d like to think there may be a way/workaround to accomplish this?

Many thanks for any insight, folks and a Happy New Year!
