The Motif XF6 is a 61 key workstation synth that has some of the best sounds that you will ever hear. I have heard some of the basic presets that it offers in mainstream top 40 music on a regular basis. I am an owner of the original Motif that came out over ten years ago and I loved it, I have been using it almost every day for the last 10 years and when I found out they were coming out with a XF board I jumped on it pretty quick.


The XF6 is easy to set up and start using (for me because I had the original Motif). There are a ton of presets and kits to work with and this board is even expandable though I have not purchased any expansions yet. I have been using it with Cubase since the day that I purchased it and could not be happier.


The XF6 allows 64 patterns and up to 256 voices for all patterns. It does allow sampling and it has a 128 polyphony. It comes with installed RAM of 128M which was more than enough for me to sample other audio. The keys are semi weighted and have a great touch to them; I love just playing the pianos on this keyboard because it feels so real and almost gives me a baby grand experience.


Sequencing on this keyboard is something that I didn’t like mainly because I didn’t like the interface of the sequencer. That is why I prefer to keep it in Cubase because I am already familiar with Cubase and have been using it forever. The arpeggiators are pretty cool as well on the XF6 and they are customizable to get the exact style of arp you are looking for. This keyboard was pretty expensive but after using the original Motif I knew this was a must have.
