User friendly!, could use some help in the sampling area as for processing samples, normalizing etc.CD-RW and 8 outputs would send it over the top.


Get the motif

By KeNLoc

from Everett,WA

My folks down in Sacramento introduced me to the motif6 and I had to have it, so I got it. I've owned the motif6 for a year now, and I think it's a great workstation but I'm kinda getting bored with it so I want to upgrade to a MotifES6. But out of all the keyboards on the market now, I'm gonna stay with the Yamaha Motif!!


better than you

This is the best synth I've ever played. It has everything you can want, for half the price of other[more over rated]boards.Not to mention the simplicity of working it......within ten minutes of having it I understood how to use almost everything except a few more advanced features....definetely worth the money no matter what you pla, music or instrumen.....it's really easy.

I've had this board for a couple of months now, and it has been simply blowing my mind. When compared to the Triton boards or some of the other workstations out there, I've found that the sequencer is probably the easiest to use on the market. It takes a little bit of time to really start enjoying the more advanced features, but it's a great board and you'll find it can do just about anything you can think up. I also recommend getting the vocal harmony board for it and some RAM for sampling to give yourself an awesome performance machine.

I bought the Motif about 3 yrs ago and its opened SO many doors for me. I've gigged with mines and tracked on it for albums. Believe me when I say this is a GREAT buy.


A Money Maker

I finally got it and it has open many doors for me. With my motif I have been able to make music for weddings, partys, web sites, and so on and so on. It is the best thing I have invested in.


Everything I ever dreamed of...

I don't actually own this item yet. I go to music stores just to play this keyboard, if a music store doesn't have this keyboard I am not even interested in playing any of them. I feel this keyboard has more features than anything I've ever used in my life. I have always known Yamaha to have the cleanest sounds of any company I've tried. Many companies are nice, but I've never seen anything as crisp as Yamaha, even on their cheaper models. This is one keyboard I feel they outdid themselves with. The ability to customize every sound is great. Another of my favorite features this has is that you can select a guitar sound and play guitar that actually SOUNDS like a guitar with string noises and everything just like your hands are sliding around on a guitar. It's amazing. I noticed the other reviews are for people that create rap and hip hop. I don't create that sort of music, although I can see how this would be a great asset in doing so, but it is also great for every style other than that that I can think of. It's a great all around keyboard. I crave it.

Excellent versatility ...for beginners or for a well seasoned musician.. a real gem..... sounds are incredible....just picked one up and was delivered yesterday.. I stayed up till 4 am playing..and still couldnt get enough...GREAT BUY


I Love It

By Ghost tha GI

from Decatur, IL

This was a great investment, it has everything that I need from a keyboard. The sequencer is what actually blew my mind. The sounds are also outstanding. The only drawback is that you can't search through the voices as you are playing a pattern. That should be changed, but other than that it's great. If you are low on cash and need an all in one fix, this would be it. The sequencer has enough power to get your jobs done, while the onboard sounds are more than enough to get you started. Even the drums are amazing. I Love It. And for the price, I'm sure you will be satisfied.

I played with the Motif a year ago and didn't want anything else. Compared to the Triton, the voice sounds and drum kits have much more variety and have a much more futuristic sound. The Motif has a more complicated sequencer and theres more button pushing then the Triton, but you have more control. I'd recommend it to anyone who needs lots of synths/drum kits.
