Yamaha’s family of sampling, sequencing, workstations was launched in 2001 reviewed in SOS in September of that see www.soundonsound.com/sos/sep01/articles/yamahamotif7.asp ). Since then, the has carved quite a niche for in a market that has just a of major players the various of Korg’s Triton and Roland’s Fantom S come to mind.

Mind you, I should out that unlike Yamaha’s few rounds of sample-based products, the onboard sampler benefits using standard, widely and affordable DIMM RAM modules to a of 512MB.

Other features as the option to add Yamaha’s PLG synth-expansion and the ability to use the ES as a sophisticated master or real-time control surface from the original Motif, with subtle enhancements and there.
