Yamaha Synthesizer Features



Balanced Hammer (BH) with Aftertouch

Unlike a graded action where the lower keys have a heavier action than the higher keys in order to replicate the feel of an acoustic piano, BH or Balanced Hammer action has keys that are evenly weighted across the entire keyboard. This action allows versatile feel when playing acoustic or electric pianos, organs, clave or other synth Voices.

8-Element Motif Sound Engine

The core of the Motif Sound Engine starts with 8 elements that can be layered together, zoned in different areas of the keyboard, switched by velocity or other means, cycled so every key-press advances to a different sample or randomized for experimental results. These elements can then pass through envelope generators to give the sound shape, low frequency oscillators to introduce vibrato and tremolo, filters that provide timbre to the sound and a huge palette of effects to add reverb, delay, rotary speakers, stomp boxes and more.

FSX Action with Aftertouch

FSX action is a premium synthesizer action with aftertouch. Physically, the keys use a high-precision manufacturing process for an incredibly durable keybed, enhanced key stability and "fast" action. The keyboard also features enhanced touch response and an extremely controllable aftertouch for highly expressive playing.

Flash Memory Expansion

Flash Memory provides an area for users to install sample and waveform content they've created or downloaded from yamahamusicsoft.com. Once installed, this data remains in non-volatile memory meaning it's there until deleted, even if the power is turned off. This allows anyone to create the best sample, waveform, Voice, et al. content ever created - their own!

VCM (Virtual Circuit Modeling) Effects

Virtual Circuit Modeling re-creates the sound and behavior of vintage effects and high-end studio signal processors by modeling the circuits down to the original analog component level.
