Hand On Controls For Live Performance
The MOXF8 has a plethora of hands on controls for live performance and work in the studio. The rotary encoders allow great access to many parameters instantly. Eq's, resonance and cutoff, arpeggio controls, effects, ADSR and more can all be instantly controlled at the twist of a knob.
On the right panel of the MOXF8 are the control buttons. When using performance it is possible to easily change and control which sounds are in use, have arpeggios assigned and which parts you are applying editing to with the simple touch of a button. The performance mode controls are one of the most effective live and studio tools to make use of whether building up sounds, or switching parts and playing live, they will really make your performance faster, simpler and more effective.
Yamaha MOXF8 - Perform Live and In The Studio
The MOXF8 has different modes of operation to suit the users requirements. The Performance Mode allows the player to create a full sound with multiple arpeggiated solo parts like playing with a band but offering the user all the control. Each of the 4 parts can be assigned an independent arpeggiator pattern with thousands of pattern choices so it is possible to create splits and layers and play along with arpeggiated drum and bass patterns with ease. This makes a great way to create rich layers of sounds or settings for live performance.
Yamaha MOXF8 DAW Integration and Built-in Sequencer
A built-in 16 track sequencer allows users to record and compose directly without the need for external devices. The sequencer is very easy to use and offers different modes of operation for live recording and step recording. One of the most powerful areas is the Pattern Recorder - this section allows users to record segments of a song of up to 16 parts. Each pattern has different segments or variations so another idea or bridge or chorus can be made in another segment of the pattern and then the patterns can be linked together in realtime or chained in step sequence. The result is an incredibly versatile creative platform for song creation and live performance with the ability to switch between segments at the touch of a button.
With a single USB cable the MOXF8 becomes a USB 2in/2Out USB Audio Interface and controller. Cubase AI7 is included free of charge with the instrument and opens up a whole world of recording and creative possibilities. There are free editors available for controlling all the sounds and parts of the MOXF from the computer. The MOXF can even control cubase with its master keyboard functions that can be assigned to an array of buttons on the keyboard including full transport control. The software editor is capable of creating sounds from the ground up as well as giving full access to effects, mixing and more. With the clever synth engine and the combination of computer software the sound capabilities are limitless.

Users will require the use of an Apple lightening to USB camera adaptor for connecting to the USB of the MOXF and to use its capabilities*.

Yamaha MOXF8 Professional Quality Sound

Yamaha have used the exact same sound processor in the MOXF8 workstation making it compete with models of a much higher price bracket. Special attention has been paid to the piano voices which match perfectly with the high quality piano feel of the keys. A 9-ft CFIIIS and a 7-ft S6 grand piano have been meticulously sampled and re-created for an astounding piano experience. Of course all genres of sounds from E.Pianos to drums, synths, orchestral and more are all of incredible quality.
