Yamaha MOX-F8 overview

  • 1Description

The MOXF8 from Yamaha is a 88-key keyboard workstation with an enhanced audio engine over the MOX series of workstations and includes a comprehensive range of sounds and effects that span all music categories. The keyboard features the company's Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) action keys that yield authentic, realistic keyboard responses, with a heavy touch in the bass register that changes to a lighter one in the treble, and a natural gradation of touch in between.

Advanced computer integration allows the keyboard to be the center of a music production studio, with a built-in USB audio interface and a slew of control functions. The sounds can be further expanded with an optional Flash board for adding up to 1 GB of additional sounds. A performance mode that allows for easy split- and layer-creation can enhance creativity, as can the built-in sequencer. Expandable, portable, and compatible with a wide range of other products makes the MOXF8 a very attractive addition for the performing musician, composer, or studio owner.
