NAMM: Motif ES Joins mLAN  With mLAN16E Card
Motif's new pluggery

mLAN got a big billing on the Yamaha floor at this years show. What with the 01X on display running under a pre-release version of Panther 10.3.something and this new card, the future does look bright for this Yamaha technology. Yamaha say that several third parties are developing mLAN products and word is that Apple are going to be releasing a version their Panther OS X with embedded mLAN drivers – featuring very low latency audio, at some point this quarter. Yamaha's vision for mLAN is to be able to network multiple enabled products. With the introduction of the mLAN16E, an expansion board for the recently-introduced Motif ES Music Production Synthesizer, this becomes a closer reality. The mLAN16E provides interface hardware and connections required to link the Motif ES to an mLAN network, Yamaha's high performance music networking protocol. This connection—via a IEEE 1394 Firewire cable—transforms the Motif ES into a 16-channel, 24-bit/96kHz computer audio and MIDI interface, and will also allow the Motif ES to interface with other mLAN products (such as the Yamaha 01X). "Products like the mLAN16E are evidence of the simplicity of mLAN, and of Yamaha's commitment to the future of the protocol for computer-based music production," states Mike Martin, marketing manager, Digital Musical Instruments. "Simply install the mLAN16E in your MOTIF ES and it becomes an audio interface for your computer." The mLAN16E includes the mLAN Patchbay application software for convenient audio and MIDI signal routing on both Macintosh and Windows XP-based systems. The mLAN16E is currently available at an MSRP of $399.
