Built from 2003 to 2007, the Yamaha Motif ES 8 features a huge 175MB wave ROM, an enhanced soundset of 1,859 waveforms for the MOTIF’s 1,024 voices, plus 65 drum kits. At the time, Yamaha had designed a new tone generator chip which offered true 128-note polyphony, and a newly developed synth engine which provided new parameters and faster, more precise envelope control. An enhanced effects system includes 20 reverb types and 49 chorus/delay types, 8 types of mastering effects including multiband compression, and a 5-band master EQ!

The MOTIF ES8 houses an advanced Phrase Factory arpeggiator with realtime loop remix capability plus parameters such as Swing, Velocity, andQuantize so you can easily modify preset arps. Overall expressiveness of the instrument has been expanded with the new “Mega Voice” system, a technology that makes it possible to include all the nuances of an instrument in the sample.

The ES 8 is also incorporated powerful sampler capabilities with the optional expansion (Please note, this ES 8 does not have the optional DINN installed for the sampler to work)

  • Please be aware this unit is 100V. This means it MUST be used with a step-down transformer, not a travel adaptor. If you are unsure about this please let us know. We have some great, compatible step-downs for sale HERE. They are designed in Australia for use in Australia and can be run 24/7.
