Yamaha celebrate 40 years of synthesizers
Yamaha are celebrating 40 years of synths by launching the MOTIF XF Music Production Synthesizer in White at Summer NAMM.

The MOTIF XF6, XF7 and XF8 special edition is fully up to date with the latest OS 1.5, plus three new smooth, natural reverb variants - HD Hall, HD Room and HD Plate.

Yamaha has been at the forefront of synthesizer design since their first, the portable analog SY-1, was released in 1974. Over 40 years, synthesizers have become more and more popular especially in rock and pop, and Yamaha have been the first choice for professionals and amateurs throughout this time.

As well as the three new reverbs, the MOTIF XF features new effect programs added to the distortion and amp simulation section. The existing distortion effect parameters remain, but the new effects will allow you to access more realistic and characteristic amp sounds including Jazz Combo, US High Gain, British Lead, British Combo and British Legend.
