Yamaha are getting their news out well in advance of the Winter NAMM show (Jan 20th-24th) with the announcement of the new MOTIF-RACK ES. This is the latest addition to their MOTIF range and is packed with the same Enhanced Sound quality as that found in the full-size ES synthesizers. The use of Mega-Voice technology combined with assignable arpeggiators has made the Motif range something to be reckoned with.
MOTIF-RACK ES features 768 preset,128 GM and 384 user voices. 128-note polyphony as standard 175MB (16-bit linear format) wave ROM. Enhanced Signal Processing Effects System Up to 8 separate parts can have their voice insertion effects assigned simultaneously, 20 reverb types, and 49 chorus/delay programs available. Three-band EQ settings for each of the 16 parts eight types of mastering effects including multi band compression, and a five-band master EQ equipped to accept up to 2 Modular Synthesis Plug-in System boards (PLG boards) Rather than robbing valuable polyphony from your set-up, the PLG boards bring their own processing power to the table allowing you to seriously increase the number of notes you can play simultaneously and add extra FX. Stereo Output L/R Individual Outputs 1,2,3,4 MIDI IN/OUT/THRU USB-MIDI Digital Output Optical Output Phones
