The tone generator of the Yamaha MOTIF XF6 was inherited from the MOTIFXS, it makes an 8-element-per-voice structure possible. Combined with Yamaha’s XA (Expanded Articulation), this 8-element structure allows you to achieve stunningly accurate acoustic instruments including expressive articulations that up until now have been difficult to re-create in electronic instruments. For example, you can re-create the natural legato of wind instruments, the key release noises of pianos and other instruments, guitar slides and harmonics, and the many different articulations for string instruments (spicato, tremolo and pizzicato, etc.). The AF1 and AF2 buttons on the front panel make it easy to control Voices with multiple articulations.
The Yamaha Motif XF6 synthesizer workstation has a rich collection of instrument Voices that include piano, electric pianos, 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.
The 741MB of internal Wave ROM on the Motif XF6 includes incredibly realistic pianos and acoustic instruments, vintage synths and the hip hop sounds that all of today's top producers are using. A sophisticated 8-element synth architecture with XSpanded articulation and 18 different filter types let you shape your sound anyway you want, and the 8 front panel knobs and sliders make it easy to do even in real time.
The XF6 has 1664 Voices and 97 Drum Kits that put more sounds at your fingertips than ever before, and the Category Search function makes it easy to find the sounds you need quickly.
