Add some sonic variation to your S-series and CS6X synth!
The Yamaha PLG150-AN expansion board lets you reproduce the rich sounds of vintage analog synthesizers. This board gives you a synth engine similar to the one featured in Yamaha's AN1x analog physical modeling synthesizer and provides a full array of classic synthesizer components including fat resonant filters, LFOs, oscillator sync, and FM, as well as distortion, 3-band EQ, arpeggiator, and a step sequencer. For even more expressive synthesis control, the expansion board features a powerful morphing function and programmable envelope generator that lets you freely draw your own custom envelopes. The PLG150-AN is the ideal plug-in board for producers of contemporary pop/rock music or modern electronic dance music.

Has some potential, but sadly it's one of the most difficult VA Synths to get around on. You WILL need a computer to do any real programming. Requires loading of "slot1 file" to access user files each and everytime you power up the MotifES. Great for bleeps and blips and flatulence sounds.5 voice polyphony :(
I bought this plug in becuase of a rave review from a friend. I listened to the Demo online and they sounded great, So for the money I bought it, and I have felt disappointed overall. The sounds from the board are at best "Fair" You really need a computer to do any real sound making. To be honest, I feel I would have been better off buying the Alesis Micron, or the MicroKorg. Both have a more user friendly system, and the sounds are much better. Even though both of thoses boards have limits, your getting better program sounds. If I could do it again, I wouldn't buy it....
Sadly, this COULD have been a nifty add-on for the Motif. But, once again Yamaha software makes it virtually impossible to do anything with. Maybe there is some potential - but it is such a PITA to edit that I doubt anybody will ever find out.And what's with this load slot-1 stuff? That's right, you have to load a system file AND your voice files.... every time.Of the ?big three? synth makers, Yamaha has the most natural sounds and the worst interface ? by a long shot. You can NOT edit this board without a computer. That would not have been a problem if Yamaha had put in a decent display on the host instrument. But they claim that you really don?t ?use? the display to play the instrument, so a decent display would be a waste of money. Yeah, right.Not worth the money. Impossible to program. The factory patches are complete garbage. If you don't mind paying a couple hundred bucks for a worthless board that duplicates the sound effects in a Donkey Kong game ? then this is the expansion board for you.
There are only a couple of decent patches on the card. The brass sounds cheezy and interactivity with the PC is not implemented well. This one is a waste of space.
The software does not work at all. And same with the VH-100 software. No worky, no good review.
