Yamaha MO6 Music Production Synthesizer

About This Keyboard

This MO6 is in very good working order and just has the normal wear and tear that should be expected on a use keyboard. All of the buttons, knobs and sliders work as they should and the screen is bright and clear. All of the keys play just as they should but the A1 and C2 keys have small chips on the bottom side that has no effect on the playability. The newest OS version 1.02 is already installed. It comes with a working power adapter. This is a GREAT SOUNDING KEYBOARD with many of the Motif sounds and we are selling it at a bargain price.

The Yamaha MO6

The Yamaha MO6 Synthesizer delivers the power, sound and music creation capabilities of the Yamah Motif ES to an all-new, affordable price.

From Acoustic to Analog - the MO has it all!

Perfect for young musicians, home and project studios, songwriters and live performer, the 61-key MO6 draws on the advanced technology of the professional-level Yamaha Motif ES with a full set of authentic sounds and comprehensive music-making features – including an emphasis on contemporary styles and voices plus an exceptionally large internal wave memory capacity and the immediacy of hands-on control. Designed to be highly portable and compact, the MO Series also serves as an ideal keyboard for live performance applications.

Sounds include a full complement of realistic instrument Voices and Drum Kits plus a number of modern and vintage synthesizers, making the MO Series well-equipped for today's hip-hop, dance and electronica music styles. For sound shaping and signal processing, the MO features sharp, responsive filters with comprehensive real-time knob control, and an extensive set of high-quality onboard effects (reverb, chorus, EQ, Master and three separate Insertion blocks).

Song and Pattern Creation

Advanced music production tools include a built-in Song/Pattern sequencer featuring the same Phrase Factory capabilities found in the Motif ES. The powerful Arpeggio feature provides more than 1,700 sequenced phrases that can be controlled interactively via the keyboard. The Master mode function allows the MO to be used as a master keyboard controller (with independent Zones), and to be easily reconfigured between Voice/Performance play and Song/Pattern play in live applications. Category search will quickly call up desired sounds, while Performance mode will combine up to four different voices in layers or a keyboard split. Built-in Phrase-based sequencer gives you an exciting set of tools to create your own music – more quickly and easily than ever before.

Trigger the Arpeggios and generate new, creative ideas on-the-fly. Use them along with the Mega Voices to create exciting, unusual phrases.

Combine the pre-programmed Phrases into complete Patterns.

Use the Pattern chain functions and track looping to quickly craft your own songs.

Generate an unlimited amount of Pattern variations, using the semi-random Remix controls.

M06 Center Panel Project Studio - Controlling your DAW with your M0

The MO will seamlessly integrate into computer music systems and features full remote control of DAW software – including transport and mix controls, as well as track arming, muting and soloing. There is even full editing for soft synth plug-ins directly from the front panel and the Motif ES-sized LCD display. A new feature on the MO Series is the inclusion of global templates to easily configure the keyboard to work with computer software.

The MO6 and MO8 are the latest instruments in the Yamaha line to feature compatibility with Studio Connections, a joint initiative led by Yamaha and Steinberg to bring total integration between hardware and software into the music production environment.

With Studio Connections you can create and save MO settings to a song within a DAW application such as Cubase SX 3 or Nuendo 3, and instantly recall and restore those settings when you reopen the song. Audio Integration takes the hardware/software link a huge step further by allowing you to treat a Studio Connections-compatible synthesizer exactly as if it were plug-in software connected directly to the VST mixing engine.

Additional computer-oriented features include two USB (TO HOST and TO DEVICE) connections and a built-in coaxial digital output, plus compatibility with Yamaha’s powerful Voice Editor and Multi Part Editor software.

Perfect for Performance and Song Writing

The new MO series brings the sonic palette and music production power of the award winning MOTIF ES to a new generation of players and producers. Equally at home on stage, in the studio or in a computer based home recording system, the MO series is not just a keyboard, but the heart of your music production system. Killer sounds, a complete Song and Pattern based sequencer, powerful on-board effects processing and total computer integration come together to make these the most affordable music production synthesizers in the Yamaha line up.

It is important to remember that when buying a used keyboard it may not operate or look exactly like a new one. Used keyboards develop wear over time that can cause such items as function buttons, knobs, sliders etc. to fail to operate as smoothly or easily as when they were new. Our technician does check these items and if they are deemed unusable they are replaced but some function buttons may require more pressure or manipulation to make the appropriate changes. Cosmetically your used keyboard may have scuffs, scratches, cracks to plastic pieces, discolored keys or other visual impairments that might not show up in the photos. We try to mention any obvious visual imperfections but may not consider them serious enough to post in the listing.
