MOTIF sounds, low profile.

The MX49 v2 is a compact, lightweight music synthesizer with over 1,000 MOTIF Voices, plus deep computer and iOS integration. MX49 v2 adds a class-compliant USB audio and MIDI interface, and unlocks the FM Essential iOS synth app. This is the 49-key touch-sensitive key version.

  • MOTIF Sound Engine: layer, zone, switch, cycle, randomize and control up to eight elements within a single-voice Virtual Circuit Modeling recreates the sound and behavior of vintage effects and signal processors
  • 128 notes of polyphony ensures dropout-free performance playing live or with full 16-track sequences
  • Damper Resonance DSP recreates the sound of the inside of a grand piano when the dampers are off the strings
  • Record/playback stereo audio and 16 channels of MIDI data via a single USB cable without any external devices DAW Remote controls the transport, mixer and software instruments directly from the front panel controls
  • The USB "TO DEVICE" port allows connection of USB flash drives for loading and storing data
  • A 3.5 mm aux line input lets you connect and hear mobile devices, tablets and more through the instrument
  • Auto power off saves energy by shutting down after a period of inactivity

Great sounds in a comfortable portable form factor. Order soon.
