Massive Motif sound in a single rackspace!
Perfect for both Motif owners who want to expand the power of their Motif system and those already flush with keyboards who want to add the Motif palette of sounds to their system.
The core voices are identical to those in the Motif workstations and add 2 preset banks plus 256 user-editable voices - double the size of the Motif workstation! The sound-processing chip adds levels of effects processing. In addition to its reverb algorithm, the Motif-Rack's 16-part multitimbral mode allows up to 4 insertion effects to be enabled simultaneously. Even better, each of the 16 parts features 3-band EQ.
The 2 PLG card slots allow for expansion of polyphony, effects, and synthesis capabilities. The 6 outputs (stereo plus 4 individual assignable outs) and the digital outputs (coaxial and optical) ensure complete connectivity. The Motif-Rack comes with a USB connection plus Voice Editor, File Utility, and Multi-Part editing software so you can take full advantage of your computer and the Motif-Rack's MIDI capabilities. The 160x64 dot LCD provides clear and easily viewable display of all the Motif-Rack's parameters.

I bought the Motif Rack to replace my old JV 1010 because I wanted to be able to sequence some original songs using the drum and keyboard sounds. I may also use it for live keyboard performances. The patches sound excellent and the reverb effects are outstanding. Having digital outputs was an important feature for me.It took a while for me to figure out how to get GM to work, I had to go to the motifator web site to discover the secret and programming the sounds could be easier. Having said that there is so much functionality in this single space unit that its understandable that it could take a while to figure out how to unlock its full potential.
Lacks a sequencer, but who needs one in the computer age? The voices will win you over, great pianos, organs, drums and bass guitars, the usual collection of pads, very nice solo strings (cello, viola, violin), lots of sounds, too! Expandable by plug-in boards.
The quanity and quality of this module surpass all others I've ever used. The sound quality is amazing, and the effects processor is absolutely stunning.
