A Universe of Sounds from a Decade of MOTIFs

The keyboard
The Yamaha Motif is among the most respected keyboards of the current century. Through its many reincarnations, it has always been among the most revered instruments in professional stage and studio keyboard performance. The Yamaha MOXF6 is the latest iteration of this noble tradition, and stands again as a model of sonic excellence and technical functionality.

The sounds
Yamaha has updated the popular MOX Series with the latest MOTIF XF technology by adding more sounds, more effects and even a Flash board option slot. Because it's compatible with MOTIF XF and MOX data, the MOXF has a huge collection of sound and sample libraries and optional software available right out of the box. Expandable, portable, affordable, and compatible with a wide range of other products, these instruments bring MOTIF music production power to a whole new generation of musicians and producers.

The MOXF boasts a rich collection of instrument voices that includes pianos, 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-ft CFIIIS and a 7-ft S6) that only an acoustic piano manufacturer could achieve. The finely-detailed reproduction of even very subtle nuances has resulted in exquisitely crafted piano voices that will satisfy even the most demanding players.

Now containing a huge total of 741 MB of waveforms, and featuring all-new content, the MOXF offers 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. 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 MOXF 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.

MOXF features a built-in sequencer that lets you produce high-quality music without the need for a computer or any other external devices. This powerful tool offers both real-time recording, which records your performance data as you play it, and
step recording, which is suitable for recording precise phrases or other difficult passages. You can even record particularly creative performances directly to a song or pattern simply by pressing the REC button.

The instrument
Category search mode features 16 different instrument categories, each with its own sub-categories, so getting the sound you need is a fast and intuitive process. With Performance Creator you can easily build up layer or split performances with a single button press. Start with a voice you like, and then press LAYER to have the MOXF choose a suitable layer sound. Press SPLIT to call up a left hand bass sound automatically, and then go to DRUM ASSIGN to access the huge variety of built-in rhythm patterns available.

Meanwhile, the MOXF6 offers a 61-key, semi-weighted keyboard that has been designed and adjusted so that you can easily and expressively play the rich variety of sounds the instrument offers. 88-key Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) action and 61-key semi-weighted action A lightweight body (MOXF6: 7.1kg (15.7lbs), MOXF8: 14.9kg (32.9lbs)) means that carrying the MOXF to rehearsals or gigs is easy- pound-for-pound these are the most powerful workstations Yamaha has ever made. Both models are 50% lighter than comparable MOTIF models.

  • Amazing Keyboard

    As reviewed by Kerry on 1/2/2015

    I purchased this from my local GC in New Jersey. This is by far the best musical instrument I have invested in. I play for a few churches, I gig, and im in NY in the studio. The MOXF 6 is only 15lbs so it makes this very doable! The sounds are incredible but that's expected having the same sound engine as the flagship Motif XF. The keys feel great the build quality could be better but for the price you cant have the build and the sound. I'll take the sound! Invest in a case and protect it. Awesome Keyboard! BTW that awesome user pic is mine!! SWEET!

  • Great sounds

    As reviewed by Paul on 12/28/2014

    Just acquired this keyboard a couple weeks ago so am still getting used to it. I use two keyboards live and this is the secondary one. Okay: Easily the sounds are the strongest feature of this unit. They are excellent. The fact it is 15 lbs. really helps with transporting it too. The light weight makes it feel like a toy but it does not sound like it. The display I find a bit difficult. Maybe I just need to get used to it more, but it is not easy to get to sounds quickly when performing live. If it was my main board I would not be able to deal with it. Sounds saved in the "favorite" bank display 5 at a time. The only way to get to the others is the dial. Not a big fan of the owner's manual either. Bottom line ... if quality sounds are your main buying point, this board has them.
