Product Description From Yamaha: “The new MOXF series combines a MOTIF XF sound engine and Flash memory expandability, a MIDI keyboard controller with extensive DAW and VST control, USB Audio/MIDI interfacing, onboard sequencing, and an extensive DAW / VST software bundle.

Expandable, portable, affordable, and compatible with a wide range of other products, these instruments brings MOTIF music production power to a whole new generation of musicians and producers.”

What Sweetwater Has To Say About The Yamaha’s MOXF Workstation Lineup:
“Yamaha’s new MOXF workstations deliver more great sounds, more effects, and Flash ROM expansion capability. With a massive arsenal of MOTIF XF-quality voices that includes pianos, EPs, strings, winds, orchestral textures, guitars, basses, and drums – as well as a bevy of vintage and modern synth sounds – the MOXF6 and MOXF8 are incredibly powerful and amazingly affordable. Your only decision will be choosing between 61 semi-weighted keys or 88-key graded hammer action!
Building on the impressive power and playability of the original MOX Series, Yamaha’s MOXF workstations offer you an unbelievable palette of production-quality sounds. MOXF packs a whopping 741MB of waveforms. Plus, there are 136 new voices, including the superb 9′ CFIII and 7′ S6 grand pianos, clavinets and organs, and a range of new sounds from genres as disparate as orchestral and hip-hop. You also get access to Yamaha’s YC-3B Organ Emulator and Prologue analog soft synth. When you factor in their Flash board expansion option and the fact that they’re compatible with both MOTIF XF and MOX data, these instruments put an enormous collection of sounds at your fingertips.
As full-featured workstations, the MOXF6 and MOXF8 give you the tools to produce professional-quality music, including a multichannel USB audio interface, robust sequencing, an army of arpeggiators, and more. But they’re also potent MIDI controllers that give you extensive DAW and VST control (Cubase AI7 is included). Fusing Yamaha’s MOTIF technology with USB computer integration, a single USB cable lets you interface both audio and MIDI with your Mac or PC. And with a broad selection of studio-grade effects (including the award-winning REV-X reverb) for both the internal sounds and for instruments or mics you plug into their A/D inputs, the MOXF6 and MOXF8 are ideal for creating polished music productions.”
