Yamaha Racks The MOTIF XS
Yamaha has unleashed the new MOTIF-RACK XS Tone Generator, a rack mounted version of the MOTIF XS. The MOTIF-RACK XS includes 1,152 Voices, 65 drums kits, and a synthesis engine for building custom Voices. These Voices are the basis for further sound creation and customization using the built-in effects, thousands of arpeggio types of which 4 can be played back simultaneously, and 5 front-panel control knobs capable of adjusting 20 different parameters in real-time.
In the studio, the MOTIF-RACK XS is easily integrated into a computer music system with a simple USB connection. The MOTIF-RACK XS Editor provides easy access to deep editing functions on the computer screen that are not available on the front panel. This editor can be used stand-alone or integrated with the included Cubase AI DAW software. For addition inputs and outputs, Yamahaâ€™s optional mLAN16E2 interface card connects the MOTIF-RACK XS to the computer and communicates audio and MIDI data through a single Firewire cable.
The Yamaha Motif-Rack XS will be available in June for $1,499.99. More information on the Yamaha Motif-Rack XS.
