Unprecedented performance and expressive control.

The Yamaha MOTIF ES7 76-Key Music Production Synthesizer features the largest wave ROM of any workstation keyboard: 175MB! An enhanced soundset of 1,859 waveforms provides the foundation for the Motif's 1024 voices plus 65 drum kits. A newly designed tone generator chip offers true 128-note polyphony, and a newly developed synth engine provides new parameters and faster, more precise envelope control. An enhanced effects system includes 20 reverb types and 49 chorus/delay types, 8 types of mastering effects including multiband compression, and a 5-band master EQ. It houses an advanced Phrase Factory arpeggiator with realtime loop remix capability plus parameters such as Swing, Velocity, and Quantize so you can easily modify preset arps. Overall expressiveness of the instrument has been expanded with the new "Mega Voice" system, a technology that makes it possible to include all the nuances of an instrument in the sample. Motif ES integrates seamlessly with DAWs via its USB connection to function as a control surface. It also has a USB To Device port for connection to USB storage devices.

This is one hot keyboard

By John from the South

from pittsburgh, pa

I have used the mofit es7 for 6 months and it is hot. this sounds are great and it is fun to play in a band setting. the piano and rhodes sounds are very good. the respone of the keyboard is also very good. horn sounds for stage are very real and expressive. this is one hot keyboard.


The Best!!

By Eric EAProductions

I have purchase the MOES7 About 2months ago and I love it! I use this along with my regular Mo and the both of them together are just a powerhouse in the studio and in live performances. I was told not to get it because I have the regular Mo but I'm glad I didn't listen to what other people was telling. The sounds and the capabilities that are in the ES are ridiculous. I mean they are amazing. I have my ES7 hooked up to my presonus firepod runinng Cubase and my regular Mo hook up to my Protools and they both are just tremendous. If your looking to purchase an outstanding workstation the MoES6,7,8 is the best workstation for your money. The sounds and features will blow your mind. An Incredible Investment!



By Dan Lay

from Brentwood Ca.

I would like to secure my settings and have the keyboard secured and lockable. The studio is available to students and their families. I do not wish to have children have access to it. It is very dificult to move in and out. A lockable cover would be nice. Do I have to have one made or does Yahama offer a alternative?

The best overall board for studio and performance!


Yamaha MOTIF ES7

By cbass

from Up State New York

Had mine for about 2 years now and absolutely love it. Have produced 2 albums with it and a number of live performances. It is a joy to play. I keep discovering new and better ways to create music with it, and have found so many great sounds (many FREE) that I honestly believe there will be no bordem with this keyboard.Every playing experience with my Motif ES is a good one. Wise investment.


Patience is rewarded

By RogerRamjet

from Jeannette, PA

This is my first synth, owned the ES7 about 6 months and only added memory so far. It does it all, though tasks can be cumbersome at first. Be prepared for a steep learning curve and a manual that is not geared toward newbies. Fortunately (or unfortunately), there are others out there that have been in the same boat and can help. Features are abundant and they would rate higher except I found the included PC software, for which I had high hopes, basically unusable. You may need to shell out a little extra for Cakewalk or similar if that is your thing. I haven't found anything it can't do -- it just takes a while to get there. If you have patience, this machine will reward your efforts.


Covers all the bases

Ask me a question

The sounds are first rate. The action is very usable lightly wieghted similar to my old Roland XP80. Mine is loaded up with sampler memory. Nothing else is needed. It's built like a tank, but if they could maintain that solid build and make it lighter, this keyboard would be absolutely perfect.


My Motif es7

By A.Boyles II

from Richmond, VA

I am glad that Yamaha made this keyboard! My Motif does everything I need it to do. From the 16-track studio all the way down to the awesome selection of sounds, the Motif es7 is indeed the best!


exciting ax

By twklitsch

from charlotte nc

sounds great not quite as easy to use as roland s-88.but 8 insert effects come in handy


How will Korg top this?

By Thelonius

from Chicago, IL

Sonically, the Studio could never match the Motif. Now, with MegaVoices, 128-note polyphony, Phrase Factory, etc. it will be interesting to see what Korg shows at Winter NAMM 2004


Simply Amazing

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

When I first played the Motif Es. I fell in Love with it. the piano sounds are amazing. All of the rhodes are top notch. the leads are great too. i have a friend who has a Fantom and another friend in our church band who has a Triton Extreme 88. The Motif is better than them Both. If you want a great workstation, buy a Motif ES. I can't get enough of it. I jam with my Motif with an Yamaha S03 on top.
