Hi everyone! I've played with MOTIF XF's internal waveforms enough now that I can list some of the issues I've experienced with the samples so far. These are subtle but some of them like the issue with Viola is very annoying.

1- Piano (I guess it's the default piano voice and not S6): in the highest keys there is one key which is a bit off tune (I can find it if it matters).
2- Classical Guitar: In the maximum velocity, in the mid notes, there is one sample has a bit delay, which means whoever created it forgot to remove the silence at the beginning.
3- Viola: One sample creates a humming effect which is used for 2 or 3 keys and they all have this characteristic.
4- Organs: I don't remember exactly which drawbar sample but there is some noise in the lowest and highest samples.

If it matters I can name the notes and sample names in detail.

You know some of the pianos are “stretch tuned”... if you don’t know what that is ask your piano tuner.

It doesn’t matter, if it doesn’t matter to you.

Well it matters Phil. Let's start with these 2:

-Viola G2 clear hum when played (it is a range of notes but i just mentioned one of them).
-Classical Guitar: Nylon_Open_Hard: G2, audible lag specially when layered with other samples.

I have lost my voice back up and I don't have my piano and organ voices anymore and it would take me some time to recreate my voices.

***I usually layer viola or violin with my string section to take the advantage of its sound and attack to give the section the characteristic of that specific instrument. For a viola section I use a viola sound and a string section layered together. This range of notes is no pleasant and it's hard to remove the humming effect in the sample.

Also I wish Violin and Viola had better samples specially in the high keys :(
