Product Description

The Yamaha MM6 synthesizer gives you the Creative Juices from the Motif but in a Smaller Package. Not only does the MM6 feature sounds from the Motif, but the quick edit knobs and arpeggios let you control them in real time. You can jam over the top of the street-smart grooves with layered or split sounds in Performance mode. When you’re ready to record your music, you can record the grooves and keyboard parts directly to the on board song sequencer. For even greater flexibility, connect to your computer via USB and use the bundled Cubase software. Whether you’re just jamming with friends or working on complete music productions, the MM6 lets you hit the streets in style.

  • Key sounds from the Motif line of synthesizers
  • Real Time Knobs for controlling filter and EG
  • Built-in grooves
  • Performance Mode
  • Cubase LE software included
  • Includes manual and AC Power Adaptor
Plat Sounds from the Legendary Motif
That's the first and most important thing you look and listen for in a synthesizer. Rest assured, this synthesizer delivers. The MM6 has 418 Voices and 22 Drum Kits on board, based on the sounds of the famed pro-level MOTIF series synthesizers. These exceptionally high-quality sounds range from authentic and natural acoustic instruments to wild, unique and in-your-face synth Voices. An extra set of GM Voices (128 Normal, 1 Drum Kit) is built into the instrument as well, giving you all you need to play back songs recorded in that popular format.

So many Voices, so little time
That's why Yamaha also included a convenient Category Search function. Just select the type of instrument you want to play organ, guitar, synth lead, strings, whatever then select the specific Voice. All your favorite sounds are right at your fingertips.

The Power to Control.
    Tweak -- Your sounds the way you want
    Take control. Twist some knobs and tweak the sound. Make it sing and make it scream. The MM6 puts some serious control in your hands. Change the filter cutoff and resonance settings as well as the EG attack and release with the four knobs in real time as you play.

    Jam -- Patterns to groove on
    The MM6 has a full set of Patterns that give you rhythmic backing in a wide variety of music styles including Hip Hop, Rap, R&B, Dance, Ambient, Pop, Rock, Jazz and even World styles. These Patterns are just what you need to shake up the dance floor. All dynamic, all powerful, the MM6 gives you the real thing. Patterns that stay in the groove, but never sound mechanical. Drum loops with a truly human feel that dance and float around the beat, yet remain firmly in the pocket. Riffs and licks that get you inspired, get you moving, and get you creating some serious music.
Arpeggiate Yourself
Generate some excitement. The powerful Arpeggiator feature lets you automatically create repeating rhythmic phrases and note patterns. A full 213 Arpeggiator types are built in, letting you trigger a variety of musically useful and exciting patterns to get the house jumping. Many of these Arpeggiator types use synth lead, piano and guitar Voices to generate melodic and broken chord patterns based on the chords you play with your left hand. Bass arpeggios and Drum Voice rhythm loops are also included, letting you easily set up dynamic riffs and beats to jam over.

Create -- Your Music, Your Way
When you play live, you want to be able to make sound changes quickly - not just between songs, but in the middle of a song too. The Performance Memory feature is just the tool you need to smoothly switch gears and take things up a notch or two. Each Performance can store combined settings for the Voices you want to use (including special keyboard splits and layers), the Patterns you want as backing tracks, and any other crucial settings for your live work. Then, simply call up each Performance by pressing a single button.

Save and Swap
Share the wealth. With the rear panel USB connection, the MM6 makes it easier than ever before to transfer your valuable data between devices. Plug in a USB thumb drive or memory stick and store the important MIDI songs, Pattern files, Performance settings and all other data you've created, and then bring it to a computer for archiving and organizing. You can also save your recorded songs in the universal SMF (Standard MIDI File) format, then transfer and use those on any another SMF-compatible device, including computers running MIDI music sequencing software.

Produce -- Studio Smart, too
The MM6 is all about making music. And since much of today's music is being made on computers, the MM6 is built to fit right into any computer music system. Just connect the USB To Host terminal on the instrument to your computer with a standard USB cable, and you've got the makings of a sophisticated recording setup. And just to make sure you get a head start, Yamaha has included a free copy of Cubase LE -- a full-featured music production software that has all you need to record your performance data from the MM6 via MIDI (and even use plug-in synthesizers in the software), edit the data, process the sounds with effects, arrange it in multiple tracks and perform final mixdown.

The MM6 Gives You:
  • Super high quality sounds
  • Tons of real-time control
  • Dynamic music creation tools--Authentic Pattern and Apreggiator generators
  • Performance Memory for instant full panel setting changes
  • Versatile song recording features--with eight normal tracks and one Pattern track
  • Convenient, easy to use data storage solutions

Hmm, Scratch & Dent ?
General
What is your overall opinion of this product?
Great value for an entry level Synthesizer.
Quality
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
Like everything nowadays it is made of plastic, which somewhat cheapens the look, but it is very light weight, making it portable.
Ease of Use
How user friendly is it? Would it work well for a beginner, intermediate or experienced player?
I'm a drummer myself, I bought this to try and get some of the riffs that run through my head out so I can share them more easily with the rest of our band. I haven't recorded anything yet but, I'm having a blast learn all of the features on what I like to call my portable keys on steroids.
Features
Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features?
More than I could ask for
Sound
How is the sound quality? How does the sound compare to other products you've use?
Most of the sounds are amazing. Some are lacking a little, but then again it could just be lack of experience.
Feel
How is the feel of the keys? Are the controls laid out well?
For not actually being weighted, the keys play as if they are
Value
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
I bought this as a scratch & dent item, the box it came in was beat-up, the keyboard itself, I haven't found any blemishes yet. 41% off, You cannot by another keyboard/synthesizer for that price. Thanks AMS
