need advice-Motif?


Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a new synth to replace my Ensoniq mr-76.

I use it for live performance and am just getting into sampling/ recording in my home studio with Cakewalk Pro Audio. I'm looking at the Yamaha Motif, I love the sounds, some of the features, but have heard some negative reviews.As I am a beginner, there's some things I need more understanding of (on the Motif)


1)Can I send a click track out to the drummer for sequences, loops?

2)How do you run a Smart Media Card on your computer? How does it work? I'm not familiar with it at all.

3)Will I have to upgrade my Cakewalk software to work with Motif? I've got version 8.0.

4)As far as sampling, I'm interested in running some basic drum loops in live performance, as well as some synth samples. How well will Motif handle the task?


Just a comment...I've heard negative comments about the 64-voice polyphony. I've never had a problem with the Ensoniq, which has the same.


Anyways, I'm looking at the Motif as I love the sounds and some of the other features that I DO understand.


Any advice or insight on my questions is greatly appreciated.
