Yamaha Motif ES8 Synth

Central to the Yamaha Motif ES8 specification is a new chip that delivers 128-note polyphony, takes a quantum leap up in terms of wave ROM (175 MB) including the 3-layer grand piano everyone’s been asking for and a whole heap of new orchestral instrument samples, and offers instant access to more than 1000 Voices including some truly stunning, multi-sampled ‘Mega Voice’ guitars and basses.

The Yamaha Motif ES8 also includes the ‘Phrase Factory’ complete with multiple arpeggio capability with chord recognition that can tap into a library of some 1700 individual Arps, along with the wickedly expansive Loop Remix feature from the RS7000. In Mix Mode itself, you’re going to love having 8 insert effects, plus 16 part 3 band EQ and master effects.

Add a ribbon controller, handy DIMM memory, and even handier USB connectivity, plus a substantially enhanced relationship with computers (24/96 mLAN option, Remote now also supports Mackie Control, and Performer, plus there’s a Multi Part editor to streamline your mixes), and this is a real wish list come true.
