2000s

Music is bigger than ever. But you can fit it all in your pocket. The most sampled, downloaded, ripped, mixed, burned and maybe even pirated tracks, are being created on the next generation of legendary synths from Yamaha.
  • MOTIF XF

    MOTIF XF. More memory. More music. More MOTIF.

    Flash memory. Computer integration. Fat sounds. It’s everything great about the MOTIF series in one single instrument. A workstation that’s a workhorse for touring, recording, composing and anything you need to create.
  • MOTIF XS

    MOTIF XS. Compatible. Updatable. Incomparable.

    The music world is changing faster than ever. To help artists keep up, Yamaha creates the first synth that can go between stage and studio while working standalone or in a system. It would become the synth behind the most famous acts of the era.
  • MOTIF ES

    MOTIF ES. More memory. More music.

    More expressive. More unique. More nuance. Adding more memory made sampled voices even better. Keyboard Mega voices produced authentic sounds of guitar and harmonics for all the nuances of acoustic instruments.
  • MOTIF

    MAKING THE BEATS THAT MADE HIP HOP.

    The introduction of MOTIF shifts the ground beneath the synth world, changing hip hop forever. The new Intelligent Arpeggiator faithfully simulated the strum of a guitar and gave songwriters hundreds of interactive bass, guitar, keyboard, synth and more musical “motifs” to create great music, fast. Yamaha hits a home run. No steroids required.
