Oustanding Sounds - Warm and Edgy!

Cami, Yamaha
4 May 2014
  • Summary: Yamaha Motif Rack XS sounds blew me away. Surprisingly it has a very warm sound quality, perhaps because of the VCM (virtual circuit modeling) based effects. Drums are really punchy. It's also a lot of fun to jam with the MULTIs - 4 simultaneous combined voices, each with its own arpeggio and settings. Love it !!
  • Pros: Powerful

"An In-Home Orchestra"

By a customer from sbcglobal.net, zzounds.com
10 July 2008
  • Excerpt: I've played the Fanthom XS, Triton, and Motif XS before buying this rack. I thought the Motif had the most authentic and realistic sounds on it. The Motif really shines when it comes to the guitars also. Awesome sound overall.
