Play & Perform: The Sounds Just Got Better...
The next generation "Motif XF" builds on the decade-long heritage of Motif and breaks new ground with Flash memory expansion capabilities that will set the standard for keyboard workstations for years to come.
Soon after the original Motif Music Production Synthesizer was released in 2001, it was recognized as the best sounding, top selling and most requested music workstation on the market. The Motif has continued to evolve over 3 product generations, improving at each step its expressiveness and functionality. At the same time, the community of end users, sound programmers, software developers and product support specialists expanded into a vibrant online music production community. And now, the next generation "XF" builds on the decade-long heritage of Motif, and with Flash memory expansion, provides groundbreaking capabilities that will set a new standard for keyboard workstations for years to come.
