With the 88-key Yamaha MOXF8, musicians in every genre and level can easily enjoy truly high-quality sounds and advanced functions in creating and performing music.

Yamaha has updated the popular MOX Series with the latest Motif XF technology by adding the XF’s sounds and effects and even a Flash Board option slot. Because it’s compatible with Motif XF and MOX data, there is a huge collection of sound and sample libraries and optional software available right away.  The MOXF has all the abilities you need - compatibility, expandability, portability, and affordability.  It brings MOTIF XF music production power to a whole new generation of players and producers.

Extraordinarily high-quality sound for a variety of applications
The MOXF6/MOXF8 draws on the high-quality sound of the famed MOTIF XF, used extensively by artists worldwide, and is equipped with a wide range of dynamic sounds for use in virtually any music application. Furthermore, in one of the most important advantages of the MOXF, an optional Flash Memory Expansion Board can be installed. This feature was included in response to many and repeated requests from power users. Now, Sample (audio) data remains on the board, even when the power is turned off—allowing you to instantly use Waveforms containing Samples when you turn the power back on, without the need to load them from an external USB storage device.

Instant, smooth translation from inspiration to final music composition
The MOXF6/MOXF8 features a powerful Performance Creator function which lets you combine your favorite Voice with other Voices and drum parts, and perform with full rhythmic and chordal backing. You can also record your performances as a Song or Pattern, simply by pressing the [REC] button from Performance mode—and then, after recording, automatically move to the Song/Pattern mode for further editing, refining and completing the Song or Pattern. This workflow is exceptionally smooth and transparent, and lets you create music quickly and easily as the inspiration hits.

Seamless music production with Cubase
The MOXF6/MOXF8 were developed giving maximum consideration to integration with the Cubase series DAW software made by Steinberg. We’ve enhanced and strengthened the remote control function in connection with Cubase, letting you easily and conveniently control optional parameters on Cubase with the AI KNOB, or by using control templates compatible with various VST instruments to easily control multiple parameters and complex operations on software synthesizers directly from your hardware synthesizer keyboard.

Stylish design and professional look
Yamaha also designed the stylish exterior to reflect the professional-level sounds and sophisticated features of the MOXF6/MOXF8, making it an instrument you’ll love to play, and one you’ll feel proud in showing off onstage. Moreover, its value as a live performance instrument is made even greater by its portability. They also took particular care in designing the size and external appearance to make it easy to use, even when combined in a computer music system.

      The MOXF series is a huge upgrade from the original MOX series. The amount of sounds & quality you get from Yamaha is astounding and extremely fun to play with. I would recommend this to any traveling musician looking for a full sized rig, or a recording artist trying to find transparent sounds & FX.

          It's the updated version of Yamaha's MOX series with a huge amount of sounds and samples. It's a little more slim than previous versions making it a little more portable. Sounds are of incredible quality, works seamlessly with Cubase. Great investment. I'm a staff reviewer at Sam Ash Music.

It also comes with Cubase and offers seamless integration so that you never have to spend time setting prefences and taking away from creation time.

                    he Yamaha MOXF8 88 Key Synthesizer Workstation Keyboard provides some exciting upgrades to the popular MOX series, making it the ultimate performance keyboard! Yamaha gives the MOXF8 a MOTIF XF sound engine and Flash memory expandability, MIDI keyboard control, USB Audio/MIDI interfacing, onboard sequencing, and much more. The 88-key Graded Hammer Standard keyboard provides realistic response, much like the playing feel of an acoustic piano, with a heavy touch in the bass that changes to a light in the treble.

                    Yamaha has invested more time and money than any one to make the Rhodes sounds you love accessible. The MOXF8 makes these and other classic sounds come to life!
                    It's portability is a plus for anyone using this robust workstation as a stage piano.
                    This keyboard is not to be confused with the MOTIF series from Yamaha. They two are very different animals.
                    This new workstation is very powerful!

                      This thing is a great keyboard with loads of sounds and effects but without the weight of a workstation. If you were turned off by the size of the Motif then this is a great keyboard for you. You still get loads of sounds and goodies but in a slimmed down more simpified version. Great for serious musicians who need to travel often but don't want to sacrifice having a ton of features. Check this keyboard out and you'll see what I'm talking about!
