The Yamaha XF 6 61-Note Workstation Keyboard Synthesizer - Breathes new life into live performances with its expressive sounds and intuitive control.
In music creation, the MOTIF not only offers its own music creation capabilities, it also offers a system for integrating those capabilities with a variety of software applications.
Premium-Grade Synth Workstation
The MOTIF XF 6 boasts a rich collection of instrument Voices that includes piano, EPs, strings, wind instruments, orchestral sounds, guitars, basses, and drums, as well as a wide variety of vintage and modern synth sounds.
Of special note are the detailed digital re-creations of two Yamaha grand pianos (a 9' CFIII and a 7' S6) that only an acoustic piano manufacturer could achieve.
The reproduction in minute detail of even very subtle nuances results in exquisitely crafted piano Voices that will satisfy even the most demanding players.
All New Waveforms
New waveforms have been added to the MOTIF XF 6, which now contains a huge total of 741 MB of waveforms. Starting with the S6 piano, the 136 newly-added Voices include keyboard sounds such as those of clavinets and organs as well as a wide range of new sounds from orchestral to hip-hop.
This huge internal wave memory ensures that the MOTIF XF is the best sounding and most versatile keyboard workstation right out of the box.
Includes Award-Winning Software
The MOTIF XF comes with a special Yamaha version of Cubase, the world-renowned DAW software. Cubase AI has the same engine as Cubase 5 but has been modified to integrate more efficiently with the MOTIF.
Features such as remote control (which you can use to remotely control the parameters of a DAW application on a computer from the MOTIF), various DAW templates, and simple setup features make the MOTIF XF easy to use.
In particular, the integration between the MOTIF XF and Steinberg’s Cubase 5 series is truly seamless. Using the Yamaha MOTIF XF Editor, you can make subtle Voice edits from your computer while checking them visually.
Because the communication between the MOTIF and the editor is bi-directional, whether you’re moving the knobs on the MOTIF or changing parameters with the mouse in the editor, the parameters are perfectly matched.
There is even a VST3 editor for use in Cubase 5 (including AI) which lets you use your MOTIF as a VST soft synth.
