Top Shelf Workstation

The Best

  • Summary: I purchased my motif xf8 about 2 weeks ago. I'm not new to Yamaha, I had a motif XS8 also. No other workstation can compare, the sounds are great, easy to use, and best of all is the keybed. It has the best feel. I've owned a lot of workstations and most recent the korg Kronos.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Realistic Sound, Responsive / Good Action

Simply the best!

  • Summary: I actually just came off a long stint as a Roland user. I traded a 16 yr old XP-80 and a 10 yr old XV-88 in. I also traded a TS-12 Ensoniq. All this down to one keyboard, the XF-8. I am in the first week of use and am currently building my favourites lists.
