Get A Full Size Weighted Key Workstation And Synthesizer With The Yamaha MX88 88 Key Synthesizer Workstation Keyboard

The new Yamaha MX88 music synthesizer is the complete solution for the modern piano player, aspiring music producer and live performer. Boasting a realistic piano touch -- thanks to over 100 years of piano manufacturing experience -- MX88 features an 88-note weighted keyboard, modern synthesizer technology and easy connectivity to computers and iOS devices. The new MX88 improves on the previous generation by adding a class compliant USB/audio interface, FM essential compatibility and 128 not polyphony. It is smaller and lighter than its predecessor and now contains an aux line input and improved sample content.

Optimized Touch Curve

Uniting the GHS action with the Full Concert grand piano Voice is an optimized touch curve. This curve provides the player with a high level of expression, realism and dynamic. This is only possible in an instrument designed by Yamaha, a manufacturer of world-class concert grand pianos for over 100 years.

Sounds for the Modern Piano Player

Beyond acoustic piano, the MX88 features an impressive selection of keyboard Voices. Choose from authentic re-creations of classic tine and reed electric pianos or retro tonewheel organs with rotary speaker effect. There are also punchy and percussive Clav sounds when you want to get funky. This wide variety of sounds makes the MX88 perfect for the stage, studio or worship service.

Motif Sound Engine

The MOTIF Sound Engine is a powerful synthesizer technology for making sound. MOTIF Sound Engine Voices consist of up to eight Elements. These Elements can be layered for a thick, fat sound or zoned so a different Element plays in different parts of the keyboard. You can also switch between Elements by velocity for extreme dynamics or randomize Elements for anything from subtle variation to experimental sound.

VCM (Virtual Circuitry Modeling) Effect

Virtual Circuitry Modeling re-creates the sound and behavior of vintage effects and high-end studio signal processors by modeling the circuits down to the original analog component level.

128-Note Polyphony

128 notes of polyphony ensure dropout-free performance playing live or with full 16-track sequences.

iOS/Mac/PC Integration

The MX88 can work with iOS applications, DAW software and software synthesizers on Mac and PC.

Upgrade FM Essential for Free!

First, download the free version of FM Essential to your iOS device, then visit your authorized Yamaha dealer and connect your iOS device to a Yamaha MX synthesizer. This unlocks the FULL VERSION of FM Essential. Once unlocked, FM Essential stays unlocked on your device - even when the MX is no longer connected! That's right, you can walk out of the store with FULL VERSION of FM Essential. But you might want to stay and have some fun playing with the MX!
