Yamaha Motif ES 6

The Yamaha MOTIF ES6 61-Key Music Production Synthesizer is armed with a huge 175MB wave ROM and an enhanced soundset of 1,859 waveforms for the MOTIF's 1,024 voices and 65 drum kits. The enhanced tone generator chip offers true 128-note polyphony, and a powerful synth engine provides extended parameter options and faster, more precise envelope control. Effects include 20 reverb and 49 chorus/delay types, 8 mastering effects including multiband compression, and a 5-band master EQ. An advanced Phrase Factory arpeggiator with realtime loop remix capability plus parameters such as Swing, Velocity, and Quantize let you easily modify preset arpeggios. Overall expressiveness of the instrument has been expanded with the Mega Voice system, a technology that makes it possible to include all the nuances of an instrument in the sample. It integrates seamlessly with a DAW via its USB connection. A USB To Device port connects to USB storage devices.
