Yamaha MOTIF XF8 88 Key Music Production Synthesizer White
Yamaha MOTIF XF8boasts plenty of instrument Voices that contains piano, EPs, strings, wind instruments, orchestral sounds, guitars, basses, drums, and a wide variety of vintage and modern synth sounds as well. 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.
New MOTIF XF8 88 key is the culmination of 10 years of continuous MOTIF evolution. Yamaha has added more sounds, advanced music production features and are breaking new ground with 2GB Flash wave memory expansion capabilities that will set the new standard for keyboard workstations for years to come. The 88 key version has a weighted balanced hammer action. The balanced hammer keyboard is filled with the know-how and technology that Yamaha has developed producing full concert grand pianos and stage pianos. To make a keyboard with a piano touch that can still work comfortably with any voice, Yamaha took a graded hammer keyboard, which is a popular keyboard for electronic pianos, and adjusted it for use with a synthesizer: They balanced the keys to the same weight and made adjustments so that the synthesizer can support after touch and other features. While pursuing the real touch of a grand piano, Yamaha also provide a touch that is exceptionally suited to the performance of a multitude of synthesizer sounds.
