Yamaha MO8 Description

Technology from Yamaha's high-end Motif repackaged to give the more reasonably priced 64-note polyphonic, 88-key M08 music production synthesizer with DAW control (it's 128+ note polyphony in the MOTIF ES).

Great new sounds biased towards more current dance, urban, electronica, etc. music, plus everything you'd expect from a workstation in it's price range: 16 track, 226k note sequencer, powerful arpeggiator, usefully 2xUSB, 1 to PC for DAW control, the other for downloading from CD/HD/memory.

Unlike the 61-key MO6, the 88-key MO8 also has the balanced hammer, weighted keyboard from the highly respected S90ES.

1,357(W) x 386(D) x 167(H) mm, 21kg
