Add to Wish List
Yamaha's MX88 is the complete solution for the modern piano player needing realistic piano action, inspiring synth sound and easy connectivity to computers and iOS devices.

  • The 88 full-sized, touch sensitive keys have GHS weighted action, providing a heavier response in the low keys and lighter in the high keys for realistic acoustic piano touch and response

  • Class-compliant USB audio/MIDI for true "plug and play" connectivity without installing any drivers

  • Motif sound engine: layer, zone, switch, cycle, randomize and control up to 8 elements within a single voice

  • Over 100 voices from the legendary MOTIF, making MX88 perfect for the stage, studio or worship service.

  • Virtual circuitry Modeling (VCM) re-creates the sound and behavior of vintage effects and signal processors

  • 128 notes of polyphony ensures dropout-free performance playing live or with full 16-track sequences

  • Works with iOS applications, DAW software and software synthesizers on Mac and PC

...avec 8 knobs pour controler toutes mes fonctions sans toujours avoir à appuyer sur knob function. Les sons sont bons mais il y a pas mal d'ajustement à faire pour que l'eq soit bon et que le volume soit égal d'un instrument à l'autre, en live c'est pénible sinon. All is well but give me more knob and... even sounds.

I bought this over a year ago for my studio and it has served me well. Has great sounds and it is a good introduction to synths. Has been used on a few songs on a few CD's. Great performer and very easy to navigate and get the sounds you want very fast..Very satisfied with my purchase.

Great piano sounds , and organ which is amazing and violins are wow. I find that the drum machine does a good job but no variations available when playing along not like my Korg PA 1pro can . Nice and light but not to many bells and whistles but and a very good keyboard and easy to use. I love it and play it all the time. What a joy to play and reasonable price
