News Yamaha MM8

In the wake of the MM6 "Mini Mo" synthesizer, Yamaha Corporation of America announces the new MM8 Music Synthesizer.


Like the MM6, the MM8 features sounds from the Motif Series, real-time control, street-smart grooves, computer integration, and adds an 88-note Graded Hammer action Yamaha keyboard.

“The MM8 has all the great sounds and features of the MM6 in a full-size package, ” said Athan Billias, Director of Marketing — Technology Products for Yamaha. “It’s a 'players’ synth for the stage or studio and will integrate easily with any set-up.”

According to Yamaha, the MM8 synthesizer not only features sounds from the Motif, but also its quick edit knobs and arpeggios for comprehensive real-time control of those sounds. They tell us that jamming over the built-in grooves in Performance Mode sparks creative ideas and is a great way to write songs. These grooves and keyboard parts can then be recorded directly to the on board sequencer, or for even greater flexibility, connect the MM8 to a computer via USB and use it as the center of a music production system with the included Cubase AI software.

The MM8 will be available in July, 2008 for a retail price of $1,299.99.
