Your personal hit-making assistant
When it's time to come up with new song ideas, you can count on your MOTIF XF8 to be your personal hit-making assistant. Use the 16-track sequencer to lay everything out the way you hear it in your head. Then, record everything via USB to keep track of your tunes. In fact, you've got USB, Ethernet, or optional FireWire computer connectivity going for your Yamaha MOTIF XF8. And speaking of options, there are two flash board slots for adding up to 2GB of additional Yamaha content - that's huge.
You'll never run out of great sounds
What else can we tell you about the Yamaha MOTIF XF8? If you're serious about playing keys and producing music, then you already know about it. It's a colossal music-making tool. There are loads of voices (1,664+), an awesome arpeggiator (7,000+ patterns!), a high-quality keybed (balanced hammer effect on the XF8), scores of high-tech effects made to sound like vintage gear, and remote control DAW integration. It's the MOTIF you've heard about, on steroids - and only for the serious keyboardist, producer, and musician.
Sweetwater exclusive: Over $1,000 in free software and hardware
We've upped the ante. We've taken the Yamaha MOTIF XF 10th Anniversary Pack with $800 of hardware and software and pumped it up into a Sweetwater version worth over $1,000! We've taken Yamaha's free 512MB Flash Board and added an additional 512MB Flash Board (a $199 value). We've also added an exclusive Sweetwater Sample Library for the MOTIF XF (128 programs), combined them with the Chick Corea Electric Piano Library and put the file onto a 4GB thumb drive along with the latest Operating System updater file. We've even included a Sweetwater Guide to help you update your MOTIF XF, easily install the 512MB Flash Boards, and load the sample libraries into the Flash Boards. (And since they're flash, you only have to load them once!) All in, this is an unbeatable deal on a monster workstation!

Gotta be the best
by Josť Cruz fromI own a Motif XS8, not the XF, but if I had the money I'd get this one too. The key amazing. I play in a worship ministry and there's always somebody that comes to me and say something nice about the... read more [+] Motif. And if I'm away like for a moment someone WILL go and play it. I rarely write a review. But watching the Grammy's tonight and seeing both the XS and the XF on stage made come here and write something about it. Steve Wonder played an XS8 in the Eddy Murphy Tribute the other night. So, yeah I get exited to see the Motif on so many stages and performances (and who knows how many recordings) and knowing that I own one of the best keyboards ever. Si, if you're thinking about buying one, just GO for it! People will respect you. lol (seriously) close [-]
