Over 1000 Sounds from the MOTIF Series with full iOS integration

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
