Guitar Center Product Reviews: Yamaha MOXF

Literally, from a seller standpoint, the Yamaha MOXF series keyboard workstation sells itself.  With its new upgraded sound engine and expandable flash memory, it is great for work in the studio as well as live performances.  The MOXF series features an extensive (expandable) library of over 1000 normal voices, including drum kits, piano, organ, and many others.  If that’s not enough, you can load in your own sounds from collections that Yamaha or other third-party companies have released to meet your needs.  It has the same sound engine as one of their flagship keyboards, the MOTIF XF Series Workstation.  Now you get the MOTIF XF sounds without all the “bells and whistles”–its a lighter-weight, more compact, more affordable option.  Yamaha boasts that the VCM (Virtual Circuitry Modeling) technology utilized in the MOXF series, simulates vintage EQs, compressors, effects, and stomp boxes so accurately–even down to the basic circuitry level.  I feel that all workstation keyboards have a learning curve, and the Yamaha learning curve, in my opinion, is a little steeper than some of the other brands.  If you are familiar with any of the other Yamaha workstations, the work flow is the same on the MOXF series. The MOXF houses a 16-part built-in sequencer that can get most sequencing jobs done.  It also connects seamlessly to the computer via USB and can work as a MIDI controller and an audio interface.  The MOXF is a great compliment to a computer recording set-up.  If you want professional level quality in the gigging musician’s price range, the MOXF series is where its at.
