Audiofanzine FR's review

Yamaha MO8
(Originally written by Saga./translated from Audiofanzine FR)
Very comprehensive keyboard

88 balanced, weighted hammer action keys (piano feel)

Midi compatible, stereo 1/4" jack output and headphone output...


Very easy! Its simple design and small number of controls won't make you nervous...

The user's manual is clear and comprehensive.


Pros: lots of good quality instruments (violin, guitar, etc. )!

Good expressiveness.

I like most of all the violin and guitar presets.

Con: I would like to get more choir and electric guitar presets.


I've been using it for four months. I like it because it's versatile and easy to use.

I tried out a Motif ES, several Roland and Korg products... I wanted a piano feel, 88 keys plus lots of good quality instruments and effects at an affordable price. It's exactly what I wanted!

Yamaha MO8
Keyboard heavy touch of good quality, 88 notes
Headphone jack, audio jack, midi, spdif and 2 USB (PC and memory reader)

Yamaha utility easily usable

Pitch, modulation, sustain jack

Polyphony 64, many effects


Simple to utilisr, efficiency, sustain damage that piano sounds is not the height. Rhodes and Hammond sounds of good quality, beautiful palette for music production.


Acoustic pianos need further formed on the sustain, but the rest is fine.

No aftertouch.


I like yamaha, so I love this machine.

For me it lacks the electronic piano sound of the DX7 and will have a great range of sounds,
As well as better piano sampling. So we will not need a reason (except for sampling).

CHARACTERISTICS compared to the price?


Seize the opportunity!

small default: no possibility of extension hardware polyphony limit in relation to the layers of sounds used.


Super easy ...

Just get used to and we abrviations dmerde easily.

MGA maneuverability sounds (EDIT) is just do what you want!
for Guitar mtal style, working a little, you can have the best sound!

For LIVE KEYBOARD MASTER mode controller allows more sounds gnrateurs DIFFERENT (or other keyboards) from the controls of the MIDI tracks in MO. TRS is a useful for claviristes advance and have enough budget. usually you have to pay for eros 4000 this function on a workstation.

The pattern mode, Unique motives and MO is super effective to compose songs quickly and test all the progressions possible.


The sounds of Yamaha are the only sounds that mritent that name!

Incredible violins, pianos Perfects!, Superb guitar and saxes! WO!

a small gap in the organ in my opinion (compared to Korg and Roland) and a default in the algorithm of sounds that makes a note jou five times in succession mat (shall adopt) the first re pulse. was not doing anything on the standard game, but a loud bang on a note will be blocked APRS four taps on the same note ...

YAMAHA therefore still has a amliorations tones bring their generators! but less than other companies ...


Probably the best workstation in its price ...

To create music compltes of spices with traditional instruments (not synthetic sounds that will DMods in 3 years) there is no better keyboard ... Apart from the more expensive Yamahas.

for scne: it is the most lightweight workstation 88 keys its class. and it is he who has the most live Controller (sliders and knobs).

Short! if you initiated or if you want to pay top dollar, it is a choice that you will not regret it.

9 / 10 the price quality ratio
but if we have to bargain (like me) it's a big 10!
