The Yamaha MOXF8 synthesizer features the latest MOTIF XF technology, adding more sounds, more effects and a Flash board option slot. Because it’s compatible with MOTIF XF and MOX data, MOXF has a huge collection of sound and sample libraries and optional software immediately available.

The MOXF8 features an 88-key GHS keyboard that provides authentic, realistic keyboard response—much like the playing feel of an acoustic piano—with a heavy touch in the bass register that changes to a lighter one in the treble, and a natural gradation of touch in between. Even with the weighted keyboard, the MOXF8 only weighs 33 pounds!

Of special note are the detailed digital re-creations of two Yamaha grand pianos, a 9-ft CFIIIS and a 7-ft S6. The finely-detailed reproduction of even very subtle nuances has resulted in exquisitely crafted piano voices that will satisfy even the most demanding players.

The MOXF8 has a total of 741 MB of waveforms, and featuring all-new content, with 136 new voices including the superb S6 grand piano, keyboard sounds such as clavinets and organs, and a range of new sounds from genres as diverse as orchestral and hip-hop.

The MOXF is compatible with the sound content developed for the MOTIF XF and MOX. The optional Flash board lets you add up to 1 GB of new samples to your MOXF to customize and tailor your sound set to your needs, using promotional contents like Yamaha’ s “Inspiration In A Flash” and “CP1 Piano,” as well as the many third party libraries for sale.

Yamaha’s proprietary VCM (Virtual Circuitry Modeling) technology simulates the effects of vintage EQs, compressors, and phasers at the circuit level. This technology has enabled Yamaha to improve the quality of the instruments in the MOXF8 by modeling the sonic texture of vintage analog compressors, EQs and stomp boxes right down to their component transistors and resistors. The MOXF also puts the high-quality effects found in Yamaha's industry-standard digital recording consoles at your fingertips, as well as the award-winning REV-X reverb found in the SPX2000. It even comes equipped with vocoder effects, allowing you to connect a microphone to the MOXF’s A/D input terminal and apply effects to your voice or create stunning harmonies.

The MOXF8 comes with a variety of music production software that allows you to integrate it with your computer setup. These include the MOXF Editor for detailed editing of voice and mixing parameters, MOXF Remote Editor, a convenient tool that lets you edit and create control templates for your favorite VST instruments, and Remote Tools, which makes integration with Cubase software very simple.

Expandable, portable, affordable, and compatible with a wide range of other products, the Yamaha MOXF8 synthesizer brings MOTIF music production power to a whole new generation of musicians.
