2/20/2009 [Music Production Tools ]New Downloadable Sample Libraries, Software and OS Updates and Redesigned Motifator Support Site Make the Best-in-Class Motif XS Music Production Workstation Even Better
Yamaha has rolled out new Windows XP, Vista 64 and Mac OSX compatible software, including a new VST3 editor for the Motif XS. This release will make the Motif XS (and the Motif XS Rack) the first VST 3 compatible hardware in the market.
Finally in early spring, Yamaha will offer a new Motif XS OS upgrade that enhances user sampling capability and also allows the Motif XS to record and play stereo audio directly from USB memory devices among other features.
"Not only is the Motif XS the top selling sampling music workstation and the instrument of choice for many top sound designers, it is also the most expandable, with the most complete sound library support of any workstation keyboard on the market," said Athan Billias, Director of Marketing, Pro Audio & Combo Division. "The XS continues to be the music workstation market leader because of its sound quality and variety, computer integration and interactive tools for music creation."
To handle all of these downloads and deliver the right sounds and software to customers, the completely revamped Motifator.com 3.0 site uses the latest Internet technology to tailor the site for each visitor, providing relevant information regarding the type of instrument an individual owns along with his or her individual preferences in music and style of production. The site delivers new updates, events, sounds and support, while still providing social networking features like member interaction, music sharing and artist profiles.
