MESSE11: Two New Yamaha Synths


Yamaha has unveiled the next chapter in the MOTIF story with the MOX 6 and MOX 8 Music Production Synthesizers. Here's what they have to say about them...
MOX6 and MOX8 are feature packed professional instruments that bring Yamaha's acclaimed MOTIF XS Sound Engine capability to music makers on a budget. Reading through the specifications one really has to wonder what more anyone would need to create great music on stage or in the studio.
Both models offer over 1200 superb voices and over 350 MB of waveforms from the MOTIF XS, these sounds can be further enhanced and edited with Yamaha's exclusive XA (Expanded Articulation) technology and the Virtual Circuitry Modeling capability which are perfect for recreating entirely new or classic vintage synth sounds.
Both models are 'complete' music making instruments , easy to use, they offer everything you need to create complete soundtracks, with an onboard comprehensive and powerful real or step time multi track sequencer combined with 6720 arpeggiator patterns creative flexibility is almost unrivalled. Recording and audio power is further enhanced via the bundled YC-3B Organ Emulator soft synth, Steinberg Prologue analog synth and Cubase AI.
Both models are highly portable thanks to the lightweight construction (the MOX 6 weighs in at a remarkable 7 kilos!) whilst a 4-In 2-Out USB Audio / MIDI interface guarantees complete integration.
The MOX 8 features a fully-weighted Graded hammer 88-note keyboard whist the MOX 6 features a brand new 61-note semiweighted keyboard.
Pricing and Availability:
MOX 6 £1051, MOX 8 £1576. More information:

I wish they included aftertouch. I use it all the time. Now only the highest end synthesizers offer it, which is unfortunate.
