The MOXF6: Fortified with a Decade of MOTIF Innovation

The Yamaha MOXF6 has been juiced! Yamaha fortified their popular MOX workstation with more great sounds and effects, and even added a Flash board option slot. You get a massive arsenal of instrument voices that includes pianos, EPs, strings, winds, orchestral textures, guitars, basses, and drums, as well as a bevy of vintage and modern synth sounds. MOXF6 gives you Yamaha's expressive synth-weighted 61-note keybed, a potent MIDI controller with extensive DAW and VST control, a multichannel USB audio interface, robust sequencing, a plethora of arpeggiators, and a muscular software bundle. You'll find the Yamaha MOXF6 downright inspirational.

Never run out of sounds again

Building on the impressive power and playability of the original MOX Series, Yamaha's MOXF Series keyboard workstations offer you an unbelievable palette of production-quality sounds. MOXF6 packs a soundset from the MOTIF XF, a whopping 741MB of waveforms. There are 136 new voices including the superb S6 grand piano, keyboard sounds such as clavinets and organs, and a range of new sounds from genres as diverse as orchestral and hip-hop. Create vintage analog and modern digital synth sounds using MOXF6's 8-element Voices, 18 filter types, and exhaustive effects section. MOXF6 gives you access to all the sounds you need for live performance and music production in a dizzying array of styles. Factor in its Flash board expansion option and the fact that it's compatible with both MOTIF XF and MOX data, and the MOXF6 puts a huge collection of sound and sample libraries and optional software at your fingertips.

Yamaha quality sounds you won't have to tweak

You simply have to respect the wonderful collection of sounds Yamaha packed into the MOXF Series. As you can expect from Yamaha, each of the sounds was expertly crafted down to the finest detail, so you can call up any preset you like and never haven to worry about tweaking your tone. Add to that a full complement of VCM-based effects and processors, and you'll never run out of creative possibilities. And if you need more sounds, you can always pick up an aftermarket Flash Board expansion, such as Inspiration In A Flash or the CP1 piano, for up to 1GB of additional wave ROM.

Rediscover the music software you already love

Fusing Yamaha's MOTIF technology with USB computer integration, MOXF6 brings world-class MOTIF music production to a new generation of artists. A single USB cable lets you fully integrate both audio and MIDI with your MAC or PC. With MOXF6, you'll find new creative uses for your favorite music software. (Steinberg's Cubase AI7 software is included.)

Awesome effects to spice up your music

MOXF6 boasts a broad selection of effects for both the internal sounds and for use with the A/D inputs, giving you access to the same effects found in Yamaha's professional digital recording consoles. The MOXF6 also includes the award-winning "REV-X" reverb, so you can polish your vocals and instruments with tasty ambiance.

Looks worse, but sounds better than FA

In addition to this MOXF6, I own both the Roland FA-06 and the Motif XF8. I recently sold the FA-06 because the MOXF6 is better. It's not as flashy as the Roland (Roland has a color screen, nice industrial deisgn) but the sound selection and quality on the MOXF6 is just better. Plus, you can expand the instrument adding (your own!) waveforms via the flash board so it's never obsolete. While you can also update instruments on the FA (Axial), it's only programmable by Roland, and at some point they'll stop pushing content out. However, I think the biggest decision to make between this and the FA06 is your style of music. If you are more into acoustic/real instruments, the Yamaha is the only choice. Look, the FA sounds fine, but Yamaha's acoustic "real" instruments are just better than the Roland. Listen for yourself to make your final decision! PROS - the keyboard is non-weighted but still feels pretty good, and the keys are not 100% shiny; the black keys are slightly textured which is nice - boots in a few seconds (Motif XF takes 1m) - incredible integration with a DAWs -- like, astonishingly great. - same sound engine + ROM as the Motif XF - a button for everything (GREAT!!!) CONS - Screen is tiny and black and white.... but ... I never found it too difficult to navigate - the voice save *files* aren't 100% compatible with the XF which is a HUGE pain, Google for this one. - too light weight, moves around sometimes while you're playing it - rotary knobs have detents

Beyond Amazing Sound!

I purchased the moXF6 for use as both a workstation and synthesizer. I can't express in words, the incredible voices on board the moXF6. The pianos alone are worth every cent of the price, but literally all of the awe-inspiring voices are simply breathtaking. Yamaha has done its customers a great favor in offering the motif XF voices in a "half-the -price" unit. Despite it's polycarbonate shell, the unit has a good and solid about it. Yamaha has retained a bit of its stubbornness in the ease of use department, but once you acclimate yourself to how Yamaha does things, it becomes a breeze. (Delving into the moXF6's manual will really help you with set up of this incredible instrument). The stereo audio sounds onboard the moXF6 produce amazing results in both direct-to-DAW recording as well as stage performance, and use as a MIDI & DAW controller produces great results. I personally like the feel of the semi-weighted keyboard. It feels a bit different that most "synth" keys. Difficult to describe, but the keys have a good, fast, and solid response allowing for great expression. The flash memory storage capability on this unit is a great asset to the moXF6; allowing for onboard storage of an incredible array of sounds and sequences. An extra worth considering. The arpeggiator is the best I've heard and I assuredly appreciate the "beyond amazing sound" of the voices you will truly never find need to tweak. It definitely has the "magic" and almost becomes a part of you when it comes to expressiveness and feel.

Amazing Power and Price!

I have this for almost a week now, and must say I never had so much fun playing any instrument like this one So many sounds to choose from and a couple hundred performances to get you started on being creative. I already composed 2 songs with this machine and will continue to for years to come! Very easy to use and I love the keybed. I really love the ambient sounds on this machine and the editing is pretty easy too! Creating my own performance took me only a few minutes ( There is Youtube videos and lessons also) I love that it's lightweight, makes it easy to set up in 3-5 minutes and get going recording. I highly Recommend this if your a person like me who does a lot of home studio recording ( I Use Garageband mostly ) and like I said I just scratched the surface..

This Keyboard is a lot better than a Mox. I almost bought a Mox and I am glad that I waited for the Moxf6 to come out. I retired my 1991 Kawai K1 Series Two for the Grand Kids. I am so Blown away at the Sounds with the Keyboard and the Many Sounds that you can buy.. I am a big fan of the Vintage sounds as I am a Hammond B3 Player for 45 Years. If you the Player out there want a Great Keyboard at a Great Price Either the Moxf6 or 8 is the best deal and Product out there. I would also like to thank the People at Sweetwater for their Kind and Professional Support. I will always buy from Sweetwater. Thanks so Much Chuck Whitlock.

Yamaha MoxF6 is a great tool for all your requirements

I have being waited for long to experience a great keyboard like this since Korg M1 appeared.There are only two hoping for a professional musican: Great sounds, and fast set-up.MoxF meets those two reasons. Thus thousand of Apr, patterns, it's great for us, borrowing rythum must be easier for ever.One more important the price is so adaptable.
