Yamaha MX88 Music SynthesizerThe Yamaha MX88 is the top-of-the-line MX series keyboard synthesizer featuring a beautiful GHS Graded Hammer action keyboard and authentic Concert Grand piano sound. In addition to this stunning piano performance engine, the MX88 offers over 1000 sounds taken directly from the popular Motif range of professional workstation keyboards. Lightweight PortabilityThe Yamaha MX88 weighs just 13.9kg, so is designed for musicians who need the best possible piano performance, along with other sounds in an easy to transport form. Add an optional padded gig bag (extra cost) and you’ve got everything you need to take your music on the road. Huge Sound PalletteAs well as a beautiful concert grand piano sound, the MX88 is the ideal instrument for the gigging musician, as well as being perfect for use in home studios as a powerful composition tool. There are excellent recreations of classic electric pianos, clavs and tonewheel organs - complete with effects such as chorus, phasing, and rotary speaker simulator.The keyboard sounds mentioned above are complemented with an excellent array of orchestral sounds including strings, brass, woodwind, classical organs and other classical instruments. For when more modern sounds are needed, the MX88 delivers a great range of synthesizers, guitars, basses and cutting edge modern-sounding drum & percussion sounds. Easy Split / Layer FunctionWith the MX88, it is easy to combine two Voices to play on the keyboard at the same time using the dedicated Split and Layer buttons. You can save your favourite slip & layered sound combinations, each one with their own intelligent arpeggiator and a dedicated Part for a drum track. The MX88 comes pre-loaded with 128 Performances to show off what this powerful instrument is capable of, but all the presets are fully editable and can be erased to make space for you to save your own settings. 8 Element Voices For Huge & Complex Sound CreationBecause the MX88’s sound processor is based on the same powerful beast found in the MOtif line of keyboards, it is possible to create voices that consist of up to 8 ‘elements’. These 8 elements can be layered to create ‘massive’ sounds, or split across the keyboard for when you need to create complex orchestrations without changing patches. YOu can even velocity-switch between the elements for even greater flexibility. The MX88 has 128 notes of polyphony to minimise note dropout and easily copes with 16 track sequences. Full Compatibility With Yamaha FM Essential AppThe MX88 is fully compatible with Yamaha’s new (and free!) FM Essential iOS app. The standard version of this APP features just 10 voices, but when connected to the MX88 (using the Apple Lightning to USB connector) an extra 261 voices are unlocked to give you a full range of famous 80’s synth sounds right up to current electronic dance music tones. The FM Essential APP even maps itself to work with the hardware controllers found on the MX88 - full integration - it;s like having an extra synth completely free of charge (you’ll need an Apple iPad to achieve this!) Integration With Your Favourite iOS / MAC / PC Music Making SoftwareThe MX88 is designed to integrate with your favourite DAW software and features class-compliant USB [to host] connection to plug directly to your computer or iOS device (requires connection cable - not supplied). The MX88 can also be used to ‘ remote control’ certain software packages. There are lots of built-in remote control templates for interacting with popular plug-in synths and audio editing software.
