For the past decade the MOTIF has been the de facto industry standard in
music production synthesizers for both live performance and studio use.
Combining MOTIF technology with new USB computer integration
technology, the MOX series is the most powerful, mobile and affordable
Yamaha music workstation ever. They are destined to bring MOTIF music
production power to a whole new generation of players.

MOX has the exact same 1,270 sounds as the acclaimed MOTIF XS covering a
wide variety of music styles. Starting with the Yamaha's acclaimed
Concert Grand Piano CFIII grand piano sound; all the acoustic instrument
sounds (strings, brass, guitar, bass, drums and more) that made the
MOTIF XS so popular are included.. Of course the 8 element Voices, 18
different filter types and extensive effects section are also great for
creating the vintage analog and modern digital synthesizer sounds that
are used in the electronic and hip hop music scenes. All the sounds
you'll need for both live performance and music production in a variety
of styles are contained in the MOX.
You can combine multiple Voices together (up to 4 parts) and play them
on one MIDI channel in performance mode, allowing you to play dynamic
layered sounds or play solos along with drums and bass backing tracks.
With the interactive Arp engine, even playing simple chords or just one
finger gives you complete musical performances to spark your creativity.
The MOX has 256 preset performances in a wide variety of music style
including Rock, World, Hip Hop Jazz, etc.
Category search mode makes it fast and intuitive get to your ideal
instrument. 16 different instrument categories with sub-categories make
it quick to get the sound you need.
With the Performance Creator (a new feature taken from the S90 XS, you
can easily build up layer or split Performances by a single button
press. Start with a Voice you like, press LAYER and a suitable layer
sound will be chosen. Press SPLIT and a left hand Bass sound is called
up automatically. Go to DRUM ASSIGN and you can play along with the tons
of built in rhythm patterns.
MOX has a wide variety of effects for both the internal keyboard sounds
and for use with the A/D inputs including a Vocoder for vocal formant
controlled synth sounds.. Also Yamaha's proprietary VCM (Virtual
Circuitry Modeling) technology that, rather than simply attempting to
approach the desired sound using conventional digital audio methods,
actually models the original analog circuitry — right down to the last
resistor and capacitor. With the MOX, the high-quality effects found in
our industry-standard digital recording consoles are at your
MOX also includes the award-winning "REV-X" reverb, the same professionally renowned reverb found in the SPX2000.
A single USB cable lets you integrate both Audio and MIDI with your MAC
or PC computer. MOX has a built-in 4-in 2-out USB audio interface so
you can record MOX's internal sound directly to your MAC or PC. Two
dedicated audio inputs can be used to recording guitars and vocals into
your computer. Compatible with all the major DAWs including Cubase, you
can digitally record the sounds of the MOX and anything connected to
the stereo analog inputs directly to your favorite DAW.
Not only for music production, the USB connectivity and in-depth
keyboard controller functionality lets you also playback and control
your VST soft synths via the audio outputs of your MOX, allowing you to
easily integrate VSTs into your live stage shows with no extra gear-
just add computer and play.
The MOX comes bundled with a 48-track version of Steinberg's Cubase AI
software, Prologue, Steinberg's VA soft synth for vintage analog synth
sounds and a new Yamaha Organ YC-3B "Clonewheel" organ emulation VST.

Dedicated Editor Software lets you easily edit your MOX just like a soft synthesizer.
In fact, by using the MOX Editor VST, you can turn the MOX into a
hardware accelerated VSTi. Combined with Media Bay in Cubase, you can
categorize and select MOX's sound from a unified universal library of
all your VST sounds. There is even a special editor for setting up the
MIDI keyboard controls and remote functions. The MOX is the latest and
best example of Yamaha's commitment to integrating our keyboards into
the computer music production environment.
61-key semi-weighted action
The MOX6 features a
newly developed, 61-key, semi-weighted keyboard. The keyboard has been
designed and adjusted so that you easily and expressively play the rich
variety of sounds of the instrument.
Mobility – Light and easy to carry
The Lightweight body of the MOX6: 7.0kg(15.4 lbs)
makes it easy to carry the MOX to rehearsals or gigs and make them
pound-for-pound the most powerful workstations Yamaha has ever made.
Both models are 50% lighter in weight than the comparable MOTIF models.
