Description

The Yamaha MX88 Synthesizer - the complete solution for the modern piano player needing realistic piano action, inspiring synth sound and easy connectivity to computers and iOS devices. 128 notes of polyphony ensure dropout-free performance playing live or with full 16-track sequences. The MX88 is more than a great-sounding synthesizer. The MX88 can work with iOS applications, DAW software and software synthesizers on Mac and PC.

PIANO TOUCH

The MX88 features a Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) weighted action. GHS weighted action has a heavier response in the low keys and a lighter response in the high keys. This provides realistic acoustic piano touch and response. Special matte black key tops absorb moisture and remain tactile after extended use, perfect for long practice or performance sessions.

FULL CONCERT GRAND PIANO VOICE

The Full Concert Grand piano in the MX88 comes directly from the MOTIF series. With a powerful focused low-end, highly detailed midrange and pristine high-end, the Full Concert Grand piano is perfect for any style of music in any environment.

SYNTH SOUND

Don’t sacrifice sound for portability - get the MX88! The MX88 is a lightweight and portable music synthesizer with 88 full-sized, touch-sensitive keys and over 1000 Voices from the legendary MOTIF.

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.

REALISTIC STRINGS, GUITARS, BASSES AND DRUM KITS

Amazing recreations of orchestral strings, woodwinds, pipe organs, brass and more make the MX88 an inspirational tool for orchestrators, educators and producers. For the aspiring producer, the highly expressive and playable acoustic and electric guitars, basses, tonewheel organs and drum kits offer a powerful and professional sonic pallete.

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.

FM ESSENTIAL

FM Essential is a FREE 4-Operator FM synthesizer app for iOS. The standard version features 10 Voices, but connecting the MX88 Music Synthesizer (via the Apple Lightning to USB Camera Adapter – not included) unlocks a full 271 FM Voices from classic 80s to cutting-edge modern EDM. Full Voice editing capabilities are also unlocked. FM Essential also features built-in effects, EQ, drum phrases and a step sequencer for automating your control changes.

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.

CONNECTIVITY

The MX88 is more than a great-sounding synthesizer; it's the hub of your studio!

With DAW remote control capabilities, there’s also a 16-channel MIDI interface for using the MX88 as both a keyboard controller and tone generator. The MX88 is the perfect recording centerpiece.
