Yamaha Corporation of America expands on their top line of synthesizer workstations with the new Motif XS, featuring new sounds and new creative tools in a redesigned, intuitive user interface.

The Motif XS includes new Xpanded Articulation sounds featuring 355 MB of wave ROM to inspire creativity, while Performance Recording with four intelligent arpeggiators and over 6,000 phrases instantly capture musical ideas. Also included are an Integrated Sampling Sequencer with up to 1GB of memory for creating complete MIDI/audio productions, studio-style mixing and VCM (Virtual Circuitry Modeling) effects from the Yamaha high end mixing consoles to master your music right on board. A large color LCD and eight assignable knobs and sliders allow hands-on control over virtually any parameter. Firewire and Ethernet computer connectivity and a special Yamaha version of Steinberg software, Cubase AI, complete the package for a completely integrated music creation and recording solution.

The XS line includes the XS8 (featuring an 88-note graded hammer action keyboard and built-in FireWire connectivity) at an MSRP of $3999, the XS7 76-note version at an MSRP of $3539, and the XS6 61-note version with an MSRP of $2799.
