About Yamaha MX61 61-Keys Synthesizers


1000 Sounds and more from the MOTIF Series

 Inspired Yamaha MOTIF XS series, MX series contains more than 1000 Voices derived directly .The MX series Voices range from acoustic sounds like piano, electric piano, strings and drums to complex 8-element synthesized sounds with all the best Motif XS Voices right at your fingertips. With a streamlined interface for instant hands-on selection of Voices, it is easier than ever to find the Voice you need. Furthermore, you can even edit and store your own sounds right onboard.

VCM Effects

MX synthesizers are equipped with VCM effects, which simulate vintage effectors at the circuit level bringing back the sounds of the ‘70s through simulating the extraordinary vintage sounds of equalizer, flanger, phaser, and wah.

Easy Split /Layer Performance Mode

Find your inspiration on the Performance Mode on the the MX just like on the Motifs. A simple combination of two Voices, you can play on the keyboard using the dedicated Split and Layer buttons. Each one has its own intelligent arpeggiator and a dedicated Part for a drum track to create reminiscent Performances that feel like a whole band is playing. The 128 Performances on the MX are all user-editable, but come programmed with the latest club friendly grooves.


16-Part Multi Timbral and 128-note Polyphony

Each Performance has the capacity to hold the three sounds described above. That’s not all. The settings for a complete 16-Part Multi setting for play allow you to toggle between any of the 16 Parts without cutting off the sound. The 128-note polyphony gives you an abundance of notes to play even the most intense sequences from your DAW. The MX series has the features to make it the perfect tone generator solution for live performance and live playback of DAW MIDI tracks.

Bi-directional USB Audio/MID Interfacing

The MX is an audio interface as well as controls software DAWs and VSTs. All you need to do is connect a USB cable to your computer and you can monitor all the sounds from your computer via the headphone output of the MX or listen to your DAW tracks by connecting the MX to external studio monitors or PA gear. The audio converters on the MX are made for professional music applications so everything on your computer – even games – will sound better when using the MX as the output. The MX interface is bi-directional so you can record the internal sounds of the MX directly to your computer, without ever going to the analog domain, for the highest possible quality.

Extensive Hands-On Controls for VSTs and DAWs

The MX series has the feature of solid knobs and durable buttons for controlling internal sounds, DAW parameters and VST instruments. The surprisingly simple interface can be combined with a remote template editor on your computer so any VST you own or any new VSTs you buy and be easily setup to be controlled by the MX. There are advanced integration templates for use with a variety of DAWs. When used with Cubase, an AI knob is provided so any parameter can be controlled by the large rotary encoder just by mousing over it and taking complete control of Cubase in a jiffy.

A Complete Suite of Music Production Software Included

The only hardware synth in its price range that comes with a complete suite of music production software tools is the MX series. The Steinberg Cubase AI featuring 48 audio tracks and 64 MIDI tracks, notation, built-in VST effects along with the MX features is the complete production package. There’s more; it is bundled with Steinberg Prologue and the Yamaha YC-3B organ emulator so you have some undeniable VSTs to get started.
In addition, there are Remote Template editors for setting up controls of VSTs.


Complete Analog and Digital Connectivity

Besides the USB audio/MIDI port, the MX has a USB to Device port so you can plug in USB devices for storing MX data to external memory and even playing back wave files directly from a USB stick. If you want to add a tablet or an MP3 player to your system just connect to the AUX input using a mini stereo cable and you are ready to go.
