About Yamaha Motifs
The Yamaha Motif is a mainstay for both music creation and live performance, favored by many touring bands as a key part of the keyboard setup. Many versions of the Motif exist, so there is at least one perfectly suited your music playing and creating needs. The Yamaha Motif XF8 offers 88 keys of music-making goodness in a sharp black housing, rather than the usual Motif silver. This Motif model emulates the balanced hammer feel of an actual piano, perfect if you are used to playing a real piano rather than an electronic keyboard with unweighted keys. It has more than 1,000 voices and has an onboard 16-track sequencer, perfect for programming your own backing tracks or a funky horn line. A Yamaha Motif rack version offers all the sounds and capabilities of a Motif, minus the keyboard. The Motif-Rack XS even has knobs to tweak your sounds on the fly for custom sound modification without going through page after page of menus. No matter which Yamaha Motif model you like best, reliable sellers on eBay have a large inventory to choose from, both new and used.
