    Hello,

    I do not really know, I just know it has 128 polyphony, and the number of usable layer 8.
    Malgree note since I know all the classic, which already terrible so the XS should necessarily be also better, cepandant ..
    I wanted to make a detail that tickles me, the polyphony of the XS 128 has to 8couches.
    The classic pattern had a defeau its polyphony is 4 to 62 layers,
    XS the problem and always the same how to use a 8 layer 128 while the best with 4 to 62 do not really suifiser already.
    In after me if he had had 256 or less the problem would impeut eter finally solved.

    Sounds ... For a keyboard, surpass those of my software. I think that given the technical report of this machine, there's plenty of inspiration for a booster booooon while. Some sounds are trs interesting, knowing that I made more in the field of film music I value the sound of orchestral instruments. Well I do not t the same and rather enjoyable surprise.
    Biensr it better not to record solo instruments with, nothing to do with the flavor of a real acoustic recording arrangement but not too much trouble.
    The keyboard will prove to be excellent on stage and could easily replace the guitar lctrique or sometimes parts of the violin or the piano, among others. Some natural sound parraissent trs.

    Basically for the privilege of having such an object in its Piola, which, even in the early morning you can dive straight into a university cratif, with all full of lments to spoil your inspiration, really the question of price does not even arise! This item is worth its weight in gold!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I hope to offer it one day.

    UTILIZATION

    Being the holder of the ES I find that the manual is clearer bcp
    very easy to use for my taste
    We do not try for hours and hours of good sound

    SOUNDS

    I find it sounds great but just a little flat on some other as some guitar that I find slightly lower than those of ES when they should really be better (but hey, I speak just one or two sounds).
    Touch is very good
    E pianios the piano and are simply very effective and realistic
    Organs no comment ..... each his own
    Acoustic guitars ohhhh la la
    wonderful
    I make the Christian gospel soul Rnb and I really enjoy!

    Basically I like 97% of all that in this machine (I am a holder of reason are, korg triton, and all the rd700sx roland JV series) so I know what I mean

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 6 months
    It inspires me
    It inspires me so much that I lost all that ds (is it a fault?)
    The price is well justified for me and I think it might not even be quite expensive given what it offers (but thank God they were late in setting the price because I could buy it)
    I would do that choice again!

    I dcroch from my well-aim JV1080, as party to the acoustic piano, and synth returning ct I got a nice little slap. The BTE is intgre configuration computer music with my PC firewire connection on CUBASE STUDIO 4. Steering CUBASE in REMOTE mode since the XS8. Steering from the software XS8 MOTIF XS Editor. I have some ram on installing DIFFERENT drivers, but it works. And under Vista, please.

    UTILIZATION

    Everything is ditable in all directions. The color display context menus Submitted trs clear, rich trs.

    The manual is complete particulirement.

    SOUNDS

    Sounds ... Hardly explored ways VOICE (sound unit) and PERFORM (sounds associated with arpge, rhythm ...): This is the DLIR. A tiny BMOL on acoustic piano, good in the treble, with a lack of ism on the center of the keyboard.

    The performances are extremely elaborate in a range of style fMeasure. However, because of the multitude of programming to choose bte, rhythm, sound, the reason for arpge, the split point (sparation right / left), does not play in the crowd, as you might do on machines less labores.

    Ism of the guitars, the 64 sets of batteries diffrent the effects spciaux who do not agree, but ... live! And so on. The expression is at the top, the machine of dployant stratges it to improve the jouabilit the lgatos, sounds to relchement ... The keyboard could be described as a little soft, but the business got it.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for a month. It is a well-finished instrument trs. The buttons, knobs, faders, pan, everything is in good order. And just imagine that below is a wooden board. Note, however, it is particulirement cumbersome. It's a big baby.

    Before you choose, I test a RD700SX. Then I fell in love with the MOTIF ES store. Two months have passed and it's eyes closed I opt for the XS8, with its large flash ERRF.

    Ct qualitprix compared to less than 3000E, I Whereas I have everything, from piano can be a practitioner. So without hsiter, the same choice again.

    - BIG LEAST HERE: NO OPTION SKIPBACK

    For the rest, nothing wrong

    UTILIZATION

    The biggest addition to Manchin:

    ERGONOMICS +++++++++++ +++++++++++++

    C simply''PERFECT''

    I use it exclusively for music compo

    Vs. Fantom G:
    Patches once the basic pattern of control are very easy to get and this very quickly because CATEGORY rpart are even with a shortcut button sction very well rpart (Vs) the fantom c vraimment too random image, I think quil sacrificed the fast excutive just to give the impression that the synth is full of patches, because I think the BIG c less than the Fantom dpart; c boring look for the patch

    And since I am a composer, an id when jai I QUICKLY plate if not more I look the more I stress jai more likely to lose my id etc etc
    -------------------------------------------------- -------------------------

    BIG PLUS THE FANTOM: Skipback, especially in component c very useful but there are ways to dwd a plug-in on the ground that offers this option, but my personal, I hate working at a computer and especially as a PC jai c not very reliable. . . .
    -------------------------------------------------- --------------------------

    I would say the Learning Curve is about 1-2h for beginners-seeding and several hours for those unfamiliar with the plug-ins, menus, etc. in the genre option
    From this perspective it can parraitre dcourageant from the Fantom, but we quickly realized that the pattern is 1000X faster when properly used a master then try the two LOnnnnnnnntemps before choosing and I think the choice then is not difficult to do in terms of components of film music

    -------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------

    And knobs and faders are perfect (Vs) Fantom ........ horrible.

    8 knobs to easily edit Cutoff ADSR etc. for a total of 16 options rapidly changing sounds (very useful for the sound mix) (VS) or the Fantom there are only four knobs! must be reassigned to each c vraimment boring

    Faders very good quality and sufficient well big enough (VS) Fantom MINI faders too close vraimment Cheap

    -------------------------------------------------- --------------------

    And perhaps a slightly more personal level: I love the Play button, Stop etc,,, I find that c is a big plus srieusement You be the judge
    -------------------------------------------------- ------------------

    SOUNDS

    + Here or pattern of Roland Fantom DMOLI the

    The sounds of violins --- WOW jen vibrates! c uncommon for MIDI c c sure not perfect but jai try several plug-in high-level (like EWQL Orchestra Gold) and jai far prfr the feelings of these patches (nothing compared to Vienna c sour but thanks for the worst after the function and remote cubase it is easy to upload songs made with the patches and the substitution pattern in vienna for example)

    BIG-LESS: The Brass ........... The Fantom is little more I warn you to ca vraimment'll have to get a good plug-in if you want more dekoi crdible

    The Fantom admit bcp seems more effective in terms of synth sounds, but for those who want to check out the Techno ONLY to the Korg M3

    Percussion: Very credible, no need''to''PADS well get them out velocity dynamics etc.
    Ethnic: Not bad, the ghost is very good too
    Piano: I found it very good, but personally GRAND PIANO''patch''sometimes lacks reverb but very easy to edit c and have the sound you want quickly (even chz violin for several patch lack of sustain; Then you turn a knob and PAF are working for our ears cgnial ca unlike Roland and be sure to assign the patch owns what before)

    THEREFORE remember: 16 vs 4 assignments quickly .......... So the choice is still very easy

    OVERALL OPINION

    Beginners to j'hsitais bcp between Roland and Reason

    The Roland seemed to me then so beautiful and everything: The screen is AWESOME I confess

    But a force to try both for 2 months, alternating my choice to quickly Resser Reason for these very important components in:

    + ERGONOMICS (the button is located IDAL)
    Strings + Patch (very organic)
    Rec + Play button etc.
    + Qualit irrprochable of knobs and faders Close
    Option Remote operates very well (mLan ethernet etc)
    +
    +
    +

    The least from the ghosts are very superficial
    - No Skipback
    - The screen could be the pattern for visual binding beginners but the long one realizes that the ghost is ZERO ergonomics in its menus etc.
    - Pads for those who absolutely want (to live I guess) but to make the keyboard percussion of the Motif is very good job

    In short, in my view: the ghost wants bcp impress, and it is a great talker (which works very well to beginners) The reason, is more introverted but acts concrtement a time we know it well ;
    in terms of sduction: Phantom is annoyed but has little to offer: THE REASON parrait at first a little fad, but offers a long term relationship then provides to you to choose between the visual or auditory

    I do not remind what others have not dja.

    I used the pattern in concert and in studio.
    I also used to compose.

    UTILIZATION

    The setup is a little perillleuse.
    In fact the manual is not what I read better. Yamaha could have put more effort into the top.

    SOUNDS

    We have a broad spectrum of sounds to suit all styles.
    However, I would put a small BMOL for brass and some wood.

    The sounds are both progressive Jazz that in metal.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I toured the workstation currently on the market.
    And I tried quite a few models.

    Despite a grip that is not the most faile I had. Technologically it is for me the most advanced and most complete. ...
