The MO8 is an 88 key music production keyboard targeted to semi-professional musicians and home/project studio owners as well as songwriters and performers. The MO provides a full set of authentic sounds and comprehensive music-making features-including an emphasis on contemporary styles and voices. Highly portable and compact, the MO also serves as an ideal keyboard for live performance situations. Drawing on the technology and sounds of the professional level MOTIF ES, the new MO features an expanded sound set, with an exceptionally large internal wave memory capacity. The keyboard has a full complement of realistic instrument Voices and Drum Kits, but includes many modern and vintage synthesizer sounds, and is well-equipped for current dance, club and techno music styles. For sound shaping and signal processing, the MO features sharp, responsive filters (with real-time knob control from the panel) and an extensive set of high-quality effects. The MO also contains many advanced music production tools. These include a built-in Song sequencer, and a useful Pattern mode that allows you to build complex rhythmic/chordal patterns by using preset Phrases-or Phrases of your own creation. Moreover, the powerful Arpeggio feature gives you over 1700 sequenced phrases that you can trigger at the touch of a key. The MO also seamlessly integrates into computer music systems, with special remote control functions that let you operate your favorite sequencer software from the instrument itself. In addition, the MO is the latest instrument in the Yamaha line to feature compatibility with the convenient Studio Connections system; it also supports the new Audio Integration features in that system. Studio Connections lets you make and save MO settings to a song within your DAW application (such as Steinbergs Cubase SX and Nuendo), and use the Total Recall features to instantly restore those settings when you reopen the song. Audio Integration takes this hardware/software link a huge leap further by allowing you to assign and seamlessly access the MO right from the sequencer, just as if the MO were a plug-in synthesizer. Introducing the direct descendant of the pro-level MOTIF ES. The MOs amazing Voices, high-quality effects and powerful filters derive from the same technology and feature the same memory capacity as the MOTIF ES ? including the stunning Mega Voice technology. With an emphasis on modern styles, the MO has all the sophisticated synth sounds and drum kits used in todays popular music ? dance, club, urban pop, hip hop, R&B, techno, electronica, and more.Features:
