Loaded with Motif XF sounds and effects -- plus the capability to add even more via its flash board slot -- the Yamaha MOXF8 keyboard synthesizer has just what live performers and producers need to get out of a sonic rut. In addition to awesome sounds, this 88-key synth boasts useful performance tools, hundreds of preset performances, and unique VCM effects to help those creative juices flow while you're composing or jamming. A built-in 16-track sequencer, 4-in/2-out USB audio interface, and DAW interfacing capabilities make Yamaha's MOXF8 not just a fun performance synth, but a powerful production instrument as well.
As the full-sized, 88-key version of the MOX, the MOXF8 boasts Yamaha's Graded Hammer Standard keybed -- with semi-weighted action that's perfect for playing the expressive Yamaha piano sounds on board, and more.
Do More with the Motif Sound Engine
Both in the studio and on the performance stage, the MOXF8 provides the creative tools you need to help you play your best. The innovative Performance mode lets you combine up to four of the 1,152 voices together and play them on one MIDI channel, and in turn, layer sounds or play dynamic solos along with drums and bass backing tracks. Meanwhile, the synth's 4-part interactive Arp engine makes it simple to intensify your playing with 7,981 types of arpeggios on tap.
Yamaha has added some 136 new voices to this MOX release! Unless your composition calls for something really exotic, you're bound to find the instrument or voice you need to fill in the blanks. The MOXF8's preset library includes high-quality, super-usable instruments like grand pianos, electric pianos, organs, strings, wind instruments, orchestral sounds, guitars, basses, and drums, plus unique vintage and modern synth sounds. When you just want a convincing grand piano, turn to the MOXF8's highly detailed digital re-creations of two Yamaha grand pianos.
So that you never run out of sounds, the MOXF8 is compatible with the voices and libraries of Yamaha's Motif XF and Motif XS keyboards. The optional Flash board lets you add up to 1 GB of additional samples to your setup.
Yamaha's Advanced Virtual Circuit Modeling effects enhance the voices, yielding the textures of vintage EQs, analog compressors, and phasers. The MOXF8 also features the effects found in Yamaha's digital recording consoles, as well as the REV-X reverb found in the company's SPX2000. Vocoder effects allow you to run your MOX8 through one of the richest-sounding filters out there -- the human voice! Just connect a microphone to the synth's A/D input terminal and apply effects to your voice, create harmonies, and more.
Make the MOX the Center of Your Studio
With the built-in 16-track sequencer, you can record high-quality tracks in real-time, right on the MOXF8, without having to plug into a computer or some other external device. Produce music on the fly! Along with real-time recording, the keyboard boasts a helpful step recording feature, which enables you to record very precise phrases or difficult passages without skipping a beat.
Send Audio and MIDI to your DAW over USB
Using the synth's built-in 4-in/2-out USB audio interface, you can record the MOXF8's internal sounds, capture guitars and vocals, and more, straight to your computer. It's compatible with all the major DAWs. What's more, USB connectivity and keyboard controller functionality allow you to integrate VSTs into your performances with nothing but your MOXF8 and a computer. And you can transmit those 4x2 channels of audio, plus MIDI, to and from your computer over just one USB cable!
Easy to Play
No-nonsense controls and modes make it easy to figure out the MOXF8. Browse instrument voices with Category Search mode, build up layers or split performances with Performance Creator, and so forth.
