I paid about 2,800 for my motif 8
Its a pretty straight forward synthisizer if youve been producing for a minute, but it would be hard for a begginner to learn how to sample and use the external voice recorder to intergrade with the tracks you produce as well as make and save your own drum patterns.
ive never contacted customer service, and its a pretty durable board especially when your traveling and you have to carry it from one state to the next going to different studios. the keys are very lightweight but not easy to break.
The sound quality on the motif is excellent the sounds are focused for hip hop users actually the sound f/x couldve been better.
My motif 8 is my main production synth besides my synclavier. i love it...... it goes whereever i go, or i make sure i have about 20 of my smart media cards with me in-case i end up where a motif 6,7, or 8 might be in another record labels studio
