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.
