Product Description

The Yamaha MOXF8 88 Key Synthesizer Workstation Keyboard provides some exciting upgrades to the popular MOX series, making it the ultimate performance keyboard! Yamaha gives the MOXF8 a MOTIF XF sound engine and Flash memory expandability, MIDI keyboard control, USB Audio/MIDI interfacing, onboard sequencing, and much more. The 88-key Graded Hammer Standard keyboard provides realistic response, much like the playing feel of an acoustic piano, with a heavy touch in the bass that changes to a light in the treble.

MOTIF XF sound engine
Detailed digital re-creations of two Yamaha grand pianos (a 9-ft CFIIIS and a 7-ft S6) give the MOXF8 remarkable acoustic piano sounds. 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.

VCM effects
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 MOXF8 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.

Flash memory expandability
The Yamaha MOXF8 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.

Performance mode to enhance your creativity
Performance mode allows you to combine multiple voices together (up to 4 parts) and play them on one MIDI channel, so that you can play dynamic layer sounds or even solos along with drums and bass backing tracks. With the interactive Arp engine, playing simple chords or even single notes gives you complete musical performances to inspire your creativity. The MOXF8 has 256 preset performances in a wide variety of music styles including rock, world, hip hop, jazz, and more.

Built-in sequencer to give shape to your inspiration
MOXF8 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.

A complete suite of bundled software
The Yamaha MOXF8 keyboard 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 incredibly simple.

A single USB cable for both Audio and MIDI connections
A single USB cable is all you need to transmit both audio and MIDI data between the MOXF and your computer. The MOXF8 features a built-in 4-in 2-out USB audio interface so you can record its internal sounds, and two dedicated audio inputs that can be used to capture guitars and vocals all recorded directly to your computer. Digitally record the sounds of the MOXF and anything connected to its stereo analog inputs straight to your favorite recording software.

Far more than just a music production tool, the USB connectivity and in-depth keyboard controller functionality also lets you playback and control your VST soft synths via the audio outputs of your MOXF, allowing you to integrate VSTs into your live stage shows with no extra gear—just add a computer and play.

Music production with Cubase AI 7
Cubase AI 7 is a version of Steinberg’s DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) software made specifically to integrate with Yamaha music production synthesizers. Because the MOXF features both a MIDI and an audio interface you can record up to 32 audio and 48 MIDI tracks. You can even connect an analog mixer, microphone or guitar to the analog inputs, you can record any instrument to your computer via the MOXF8.

Controlling DAW software
The Yamaha MOXF8 workstation keyboard has a special remote mode for controlling DAW software that allows you to use the buttons on its panel to open and close software windows, add instrument tracks and select VST instruments. The AI knob can be used as a jog wheel or set so that any parameter you mouse over in Cubase can be controlled automatically. You can also use the MOXF to control other popular DAW packages.
