    I am trying to backup .aif files from a synthesizer on my Moto X. The synthesizer (OP-1) is OTG. The USB adapter is OTG. And supposedly the Moto X is OTG capable. I've tried a number of file transfer/ file manager/ media player apps with no luck. The synth doesn't show up on the phone. Do I need to install different drivers? Am I using the wrong apps? Is it because .aif is more mac? I'm sorry - I'm a tech novice. I know there must be a way!

    Everything I'm seeing says that OTG support is no longer supported in the moto x on 4.4 KitKat.

    If the phone is bootloader unlocked you can achieve this by rooting and Flashing Philz Touch CWM. Otherwise, as stated it is not possible.

    Oof. I was afraid of that. Well all the more reason to root, I guess. Thanks very much for responding.
