Powerful Sound Engine

The Yamaha MOTIF XF7 includes the sound engine pioneered for the MOTIFXS with an 8 element voice per structure for realistic tone, precise nuances and expressive articulations. With the ability to recreate the legato of wind instruments, natural note release of pianos and harmonics of guitar, the MOTIF XF7 delivers every voice to the highest standard.

The 18 different filter types, advanced 6-stage pitch, filter and amplitude envelopes, unique Wave Cycle feature and assignable modulation Control Sets make the XF7 capable of reproducing any synth sound from vintage to modern.

The tone generator supports half damper pedalling via the FC3 foot pedal (sold separately). In combination with the damper resonance effect, you achieve an even more realistic piano sound that simulates the sound board of a grand piano and responds to sophisticated piano pedalling techniques.

Realistic VCM Effects

Incorporating innovative VCM (Virtual Circuitry Modelling) technology, the MOTIF XF7 accurately emulates vintage EQs, compressors and phaser down to the circuitry level. Based on original vintage effects, the VCM produces supreme effect responses new to digital workstations. The MOTIF XF7 is also equipped with vocoder effects. By connecting a microphone to the MOTIF’s A/D input terminal, you can apply effects to your voice or use your own voice to create harmonies. The MOTIF XF7 also includes the award-winning "REV-X" reverb, the same renowned reverb found in the SPX2000.

Rich Arpeggiator with Over 7000 Patterns

Loaded with an expansive arpeggiator capable of performing unique instrument phrases, the XF7 ensures switching to smooth arpeggio patterns is easy. With the ability to layer arpeggio patterns you can develop musical ideas quickly. The MOTIF XF7 adds to the MOTIF XS’s extensive library of arps and has an additional 1,248 synthesizer, drum, percussion, and ending arpeggios, for a total of 7,881 types of arpeggios.

Take Control of the Stage with Performance Mode

The Yamaha MOTIF XF7 is packed with impressive features to optimise your performance, tone and playability. One of the most useful features within the MOTIF XF7 is the Performance Mode which can be used to layer up to four voices and split the keyboard into four zones to operate 4 instruments simultaneously. This is perfect for creating a range of instrument combinations such as piano chord patters and woodwind lead sections, acoustic guitar chords with electric guitar leads and more.

Audio, MIDI and DAW Integration

The MOTIF XF7 features an Integrated Sampling Sequencer which allows you to combine MIDI and audio samples (driven by MIDI events), so you can create complete songs including vocals, guitars and acoustic instruments all inside the XF7. Because the XF now features 128MB of on board sampling RAM, you’re able to take advantage of these powerful features without purchasing external memory. The XF7 sequencer also lets you work the way you want because it features two different sequence modes. Easily move your production back and forth between song and pattern modes depending on your needs. With the bundled Cubase AI software, you can import completed songs directly to Cubase including all the audio samples for further editing and mastering.
