The three and a half hour-long "The World of Motif XS" provides a complete tour of the features and functions of this remarkable board, including the Voice, Performance Pattern and Song features and demystifies navigating the buttons and how to customize each mode. Topics also include using controllers, playing the multiple arpeggios, making use of the offsets, Play FX and more.

The "Cubase AI Tutorial" walks viewers through the features of this powerful Digital Audio Workstation.
