The Yamaha MOTIF XS7 delivers 128 voices of polyphony via it's awesome AWM2 Tone Generator, which features 2,670 Waveforms contained in a huge 355 MB Wave Sound ROM. This can even be expanded by up to 1 GB of Sample-RAM for further samples. Each Voice can consist of up to eight Elements, which can be dynamically activated in the "Expanded Articulation" mode ("XA-Mode") to simulate different playing styles of acoustic instruments in a very realistic way. Use Performances to arrange up to four Voices in layers and splits over the keyboard. Thanks to its intelligent chord recognition the 4-part Arpeggiator and its 6,000 Phrases supplies the perfect accompaniment. With one press on the Record button you can record directly from the Performance mode into the sequencer - perfect to sketch your ideas. The Master-Mode divides the keyboard in up to eight zones and makes the Yamaha MOTIF XS7 a perfect Masterkeyboard.
Control the Yamaha MOTIF XS7 in real time with Ribbon Controller, Modulation and Pitch Bend wheel, 2 buttons, 8 Knobs and 8 Faders. The large color LC-display (320 x 240 Pixel) delivers the best overview. This all supports the Remote Control functions to control DAW software on your computer. For data saving purposes there is a USB to Device port and an Ethernet port to integrate the MOTIF XS7 in a LAN.
