“The Motif introduced keyboard players to arpeggiator patterns that added realism and musical interest to sequences and live performances. Yamaha called this approach ´Phrase Factory´, and it gave the Motif an edge over workstations whose sequencers worked in linear, tape machine fashion.”
dear yamaha synth people,
by not allowing montage users to tweak stock arps WITHIN the keyboard and save them into a user location, you cut the bough you are sitting on. 10,000 arps and no way to modify them? gimme a break. whose crazy idea was that?
