Manufacturer's Description

Great for stage, studio and everywhere in between
MX61 WH is limited edition model.

The MX61WH features over 1000 Voices from the legendary MOTIF series plus deep computer and iOS integration in a compact, lightweight keyboard. MX61WH adds a Class Compliant USB audio and MIDI driver plus unlocks the new FM Essential iOS synth app!

For keyboardists needing great sounds, computer connectivity and integration along with full-sized keys in an ultra-portable package, the MX61WH is a lightweight synthesizer featuring the legendary MOTIF sound engine and computer integration. Unlike dedicated keyboard controllers with no internal sounds or hardware synths that require a separate audio interface, MX61WH features a powerful synthesizer engine, deep computer DAW and iOS APP control and an integrated, Class Compliant USB Audio/MIDI interface.

Features

Over 1000 Sounds from the MOTIF Series

The MX BK/BU series contains more than 1000 Voices derived directly from the world famous Yamaha MOTIF XS music production synthesizer. From realistic acoustic sounds like piano, electric piano, strings and drums to complex 8-element synth sounds, the MX BK/BU has all your favorite MOTIF XS Voices at your fingertips. The MX BK/BU even has a streamlined interface for instant hands-on selection of all those great Voices. The newly designed category selection makes it easier than ever to find the Voice you need. You can even edit and store your own sounds right onboard.

Class-compliant, "plug and play" USB audio/MIDI

The MX BK/BU series features class-compliant, “plug and play” USB audio/MIDI with iOS, Mac and PC. Just plug it in and your MX BK/BU synthesizer becomes your audio and MIDI interface for the rest of your music studio. Monitor all the sounds from your computer via the headphone output of the MX BK/BU or listen to your DAW tracks by connecting the MX BK/BU to external studio monitors or PA gear. The audio converters on the MX BK/BU are made for professional music applications so everything on your computer -- even games -- will sound better when using the MX BK/BU as the output. The MX BK/BU interface is bi-directional, so you can record the internal sounds of the MX BK/BU directly to your computer, without ever going to the analog domain, for the highest possible quality.

Plug and Play, "FM Essential"

"FM Essential" is an FM synthesizer app for iPhone and iPad with real-time synth performance and editing. Connect FM Essential to an MX BK/BU series synthesizer and unlock a full set 271 Voices.

Easy Split /Layer Performance Mode for Instant Inspiration

Performance Mode on the MOTIF has always been the place to find instant inspiration and the MX BK/BU is no different. You can easily combine two Voices to play on the keyboard using the dedicated Split and Layer buttons each with their own intelligent arpeggiator and a dedicated Part for a drum track to create evocative Performances that feel like a whole band is playing. The 128 Performances on the MX BK/BU are all user editable so you can customize them for your style of music.

16-Part Multi Timbral and 128-note Polyphony

Each Performance contains not only the three sounds described above, but all the settings for a complete 16-Part Multi setting for multi-part sequencing with a DAW. You can switch between any of the 16 Parts without the sound cutting off.

With 128 notes of polyphony there are plenty of notes to play even the densest sequences from your DAW. These features make the MX BK/BU the perfect tone generator solution for live performance and live playback of DAW MIDI tracks.

Extensive Hands-On Controls for VSTs and DAWs

The MX BK/BU also features solid knobs and durable buttons for controlling internal sounds, DAW parameters and VST instruments. The deceptively simple interface is combined with a remote template editor on your computer so any VST you own or any new VSTs you buy can be easily setup to be controlled by the MX. There are advanced integration templates for use with a variety of DAWs. When used with Cubase, there is even an AI knob so any parameter can be controlled by the large rotary encoder just by mousing over it. It's never been quicker to take full control of Cubase.

A Complete Suite of Music Production Software Included

The MX BK/BU series is the only hardware synth in its price range to come with a complete suite of music production software tools. The included Steinberg Cubase AI features 48 audio tracks and 64 MIDI tracks, notation, built-in VST effects, so with just the MX BK/BU and AI you can do complete productions. But we didn't stop there; it comes bundled with Steinberg Prologue and the Yamaha YC-3B organ emulator so you have some compelling VSTs to get started. Plus there are Remote Template editors for setting up controls of VSTs.

Cubasis LE

In addition to Cubase AI, the MX BK/BU series is compatible with Cubasis LE, a DAW app for iOS.
Connect MX BK/BU to your iOS device (requires Lightning to USB Camera Adapter) and unlock USB audio and MIDI recording between MX BK/BU and Cubasis LE.

Complete Analog and Digital Connectivity

In addition to the USB audio/MIDI port, the MX BK/BU has a USB TO DEVICE port for external data storage to USB flash drive. You can even play back .WAV data from the flash drive. If you want to add a tablet or an MP3 player to your system just connect to the AUX input using a mini stereo cable and you are ready to go.

A Lightweight Design with a Quality Yamaha Keyboard

While almost all other keyboard controllers use inexpensive OEM keyboards, the MX BK/BU series features an expertly crafted keyboard that only Yamaha -- the world's largest keyboard manufacturer -- could produce.

Weighing only 3.8kg (MX49 BK/BU) or 4.8kg (MX61 BK/BU), either synthesizer can be carried easily with one hand. MX synthesizers have a compact design so they are easy to carry to the gig and also fit easily into today’s compact home music production studios.

VCM Effects

MX BK/BU synthesizers come equipped with VCM (Virtual Circuitry Modeling) effects, which simulate vintage effectors at the circuit level. The sounds of the ‘70s are brought back to life, through simulating the hard-to-find vintage sounds of equalizer, flanger, phaser, and wah effects introduced by the keyboard legends of the era.
