The Yamaha MOTIF-RACK XS Tone Generator is a single space rackmountable tone generator ideal for use in both live and studio settings. It uses a powerful sound engine and high-quality waveforms and samples to bring your performance an incredibly realistic sound. Each voice can have up to eight separate elements of sound for increased complexity and nuance. The Expanded Articulation system provides more natural legato, staccato and key release sounds, while special Mega Voices add richness to sequencer tracks and arpeggios.
The built-in arpeggiator provides approximately 6,633 preprogrammed phrases and you can have up to four of them playing simultaneously in perfect sync - great for live performances. As you play, you can store your ideas as songs or patterns to the internal memory.
The MOTIF-RACK XS offers an intuitive interface complete with a large, color backlit LCD and knobs so you can make adjustments to parameters and effects in real-time while you play. Effects include reverb, delay, EQ and more. The MOTIF-RACK XS can be connected to your computer and integrated with your DAW via USB or optional mLAN16E2 interface for 16 i/o using a single FireWire cable, SONAR and Digital Performer.
