SoundsExp07: Yamaha -The Future's Bright - The Future's Yellow!
Sunglasses out for the Funky Fresh MM6 with Motif sounds in a compact affordable package 02/03/07
No flash plug
(2X = 640x480)
Yamaha went for the minimalist look at the Sounds Expo show with a bright yellow stand and no gear apart from a pair of the new MM6 Mini Mo synths back to back for anyone to try out through headphones - headphones being totally necesssary due to the noisy drum'n'bass emanating from the stand next door.
The MM6 was launched at the NAMM show in January and is a nice compact synth that gives you access to the sounds of Yamaha's Motif range at a much lower price point than the larger machines - as well as some standard Motif sounds, Yamaha have added some fresh sounds and loops to complete the MM6's sound set.
The small size and light weight of the MM6 makes it a prime contender for live use and as a compact controller keyboard to connect via USB to a computer.
In the vid Nick talks to Peter Peck from Yamaha about this latest keyboard. Yamahaâ€™s own list of MM6 features:
Tons of real-time control
Dynamic music creation toolsâ€”including automatic Pattern and Arpeggiator generators
Performance Memory for instantfull-panel setting changes
Versatile song recording features â€”with eight normal tracks and one Pattern track
Convenient, easy-to-use data storage solutions
