Yamaha MX88

   (0 reviews)

Connection to both windows and mac computers is a breeze, thanks to a class-compliant, bi-directional usb audio/midi interface. Players can record the keyboard’s superb internal sounds into a computer-based DAW and monitor the computer’s output through the keyboard’s ¼" audio outputs or headphone jack.

The comprehensive sound collection of the MX88 is based on the legendary Yamaha motif sound engine, and contains everything from synthesizer leads, pads and more to authentic acoustic instrument sounds. The realistic concert grand piano sound has been optimized for the MX88 keyboard to provide the highest level of expression.

“The MX88will appeal to players who need the touch and feel of a real piano with 88 weighted-action keys,” said Nate Tschetter, product marketing manager, music production, Yamaha corporation of america. “now, any keyboardist can take advantage of the computer and iOS integration and superb motif sound that distinguish the mx line in the market. And like the mx49/61 bk/bu, mx88 unlocks fm essential – a free FM synthesizer iOS app. This provides the great sounds inside MX88 along with the pure FM synthesis Yamaha made famous.”

Other key features on the MX88include:

A full selection of VCM effects

Easy split/layer performance mode

16-part multi timbral operation and 128-note polyphony

Extensive hands-on control for VSTs and DAWS

A software bundle that includes Steinberg Cubase AI

Between its comprehensive design, 88-key weighted-action keyboard and affordable price, the mx88 will appeal not only to professional musicians, but also to the educational and worship markets.
