Yamaha MOTIF ES8 88-Key Music Production Synthesizer

Listed by: Thomas Christensen | Location: Etobicoke, Ontario


Excellent condition very little use, original owner. This is a professional instrument. When this first came on the market it was used by Cirque du Soleil to create all of their music and sounds. Also a favourite of Stevie Wonder and John Legend. Pick up in Etobicoke pls.

With 128 voices, this polyphonic synth takes a highly advanced sequencer and arranger, a broad synth library and an impressive sampler and jam-packs it all into one expansive 88-key workstation.
