Yamaha MM8 Review

At first, I only seemed to see the lesser points as I was basically comparing the Yamaha MM8 to their higher end products like the S90 that I once owned. But, once I really sat down with this keyboard, I really learned to appreciate all it has to offer. The piano sound is up to the level of the original Motif, not the ES models.

In its latest evolutionary change, the new Yamaha Motif XS is impressive. From its 355MB of waveforms, eight real-time knobs and sliders to its sampler, arpeggiator, and massive color LCD screen, this production music workstation is one of the most powerful keyboards we've ever tested.

At first glance, the MM6 is stealthy looking and incredibly light (about 11lbs.) which is great for gigs or taking it to a friend's house for some jamming. This keyboard is a 61-key, 32-voice, five-octave keyboard with an eight-track sequencer (ninth track for rhythms), and 70MB of sound wave data consisting of hundreds of patches, FX programs, and rhythms.
