The Yamaha MX61 Version 2 puts an arsenal of Motif XS sounds at your fingertips, enclosed in a lightweight, portable full-size keyboard for the stage or studio. Now available in a range of Limited Edition colours at a price that won't break the bank.

Over 1000 Sounds from the MOTIF Series with full iOS integration

The MX series contains more than 1000 Voices derived directly from the world-famous Yamaha MOTIF XS series. This stunning sound bank includes realistic acoustic and electric pianos, orchestral strings and drums, across hundreds of preset patches. Not only are the essentials covered, by the MX61 also contains a wealth of more complex, multi-layered synth sounds with full editing capabilities.

VCM Effect Modelling

Yamaha's Virtual Component Modelling (VCM) FX engine accurately recreates renowned vintage studio effects by recreating original hardware components and signal flow right down to the circuit level. Classic EQ, flanger, phaser and wah effects from legendary keyboards of the past offer an unrivalled soundscape to create custom patches.

Easy Split/Layer Performance Mode

Like Yamaha's industry-leading digital pianos and synthesizer workstations, the MX61 features an intuitive split performance mode. Combine and assign two different voices onto two halves of the keyboard for amazing layered sounds. The MX also comes with a host of drum grooves and backing tracks spanning a wide range of genres for easy rehearsal and live performance.

Quality Yamaha Keyboard Action

The MX61 feels and plays like a high-end synthesizer thanks to a high quality synth-action keybed we've come to expect from a Yamaha keyboard. However, weighing in at only 4.8kg, the MX61 remains lightweight and portable enough for travelling producers and live musicians.

USB MIDI and Built-in Audio Interface

Thanks to a class-compliant USB MIDI connection, you can easily sync the MX61 with your DAW, music software or iOS device. Trigger external sounds via MIDI or record audio output from the built-in audio interface. Spend less time hovering over the mouse and screen MX61 offers full studio integration thanks to handy DAW encoders and transport controls.

Full iOS support

The second incarnation of the MX Series keyboards adds iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch audio/MIDI compatibility. The Yamaha FM Essential Synthesizer and Steinberg Cubasis iOS apps unlock the MX61s full potential, so you can utilise this powerful little synth as part of a mobile production studio setup.

Software Package Included

The MX Series comes with a complete suite of music production software tools. Steinberg's intuitive Cubase AI gives you 48 audio tracks and 64 MIDI tracks, notation and built-in VST effects. Anyone unfamiliar with recording software will have no problem making professional tracks with the user-friendly interface of Cubase AI. Also included is Steinberg's Prologue analogue synthesizer VST and Yamaha YC-3B organ emulator giving you an even greater sonic palette to create from.
