Product Description

Power and control, two elements that can make all the difference in your music, whether you compose, create or perform. The MM8 and MM6 Music Synthesizers deliver all the musical power and creative control you need - and a whole lot more. Taking their sounds from the highly popular pro-level MOTIF series instruments, the MM series have an enormous variety of dynamic, authentic voices to help you create and perform in virtually any style of music. These powerful instruments also give you total control over your sound, letting you dynamically change sonic textures as you play with real-time tweakable knobs. Also built-in are special Patterns that provide full instrumental backing - drums, bass and chords - to accompany your live performance and song creation. The MM8 and MM6 have 418 Voices and 22 Drum Kits on board, all based on the dynamic, realistic sounds of the advanced MOTIF series synthesizers. These exceptionally high-quality sounds range from authentic acoustic instruments to wild, unique and in-your-face synth Voices. An extra set of GM Voices is built into the instrument as well, giving you all you need to play back songs recorded in that popular format. With so many Voices to choose from, you might think it's difficult to select the ones you need. Not so. The convenient Category Search function lets you choose the type of instrument you want to play - organ, guitar, synth, lead, strings, whatever - then select the specific Voice. All your favorite sounds are right at your fingertips, ready to play when you are.

Nice sounds, really easy to use.
Oscar Ulloa
This wouldn't work for pro gigs unless you're playing to a very small room but for home use it's great.

I'm now in the process of transitioning over to the Yamaha P-105 which feels like a real piano.

I did a ton of research before buying the MM6. There are some great videos on YouTube from a sales rep / company spokesman who was very entertaining. The keyboard does have great sounds, but it has a much lighter/cheaper feel than I thought it would. It feels more like a Yamaha PSR or Casio than a real workstation or synth. I also think the rhythm patterns are a bit misleading. Like many various devices being marketed today (from guitar multi effects to multi track recorders), it comes with what seems to be advertised as a drum machine. But you really can't edit or program the patterns-- they are just pre-set patterns. I suppose they are more fun than a metronome, but only marginally more useful.

I'm happy with the purchase (hence the "It's OK") star rating. But in retrospect, I should have held out for a used 88-key model. I think it would have a nicer feel.

I bought the MM6 as a step up from the PSR-292 I had been using to practice piano. So far, it has been perfect.

Keyboard touch sensitivity is much better than the PSR-292. Just as plasticky, but the range of touch sensitivity is much wider. It's easier to learn to play piano with the MM6 than with the PSR-292.

The MM6's sounds are much better than the PSR-292. The main piano is only slightly better, but all the other sounds are significantly better.

The MM6's rhythms and accompaniments are very contemporary and fairly narrow. You won't find a good range of standard genres (e.g. 8beat rock, jazz waltz, and beguine are missing) like on the PSR-292. The MM6 rhythms are primarily rap, dance, and techno. If, like me, you don't use this feature, you won't notice.

Like with the PSR-292, the sequencer in the MM6 has no way to set the volume levels on the individual tracks. For me, this renders the sequencer useless.

The MM6's USB port works fine with Linux. Plug it in and the MM6 appears as a MIDI device.

The performance memory is very handy in that it lets you set up your favorite sounds and tweak the effects. Then with one button press, you've got your favorite setup. I use this to quickly get a full volume piano without all the reverb that is in the factory patch.

The metronome feature is perfect for practicing. You do have to turn off the annoying bell every time you turn it on. Fortunately, this is just a matter of holding down the metronome button for a second or two and dialing up 0/4 on the time signature.

The headphone jack is nice and loud. I use a set of super-cheap five buck Magnavox earbuds from Target and they sound great.

The Yamaha MM6 is a decent keyboard. The sounds are good but its not much of a good workstation. The Rythym patterns are something from a old Casio keyboard. They have no feel to them. Not a lot of variety either. My Yamaha PSR3000 blows this one away both in sound and rhythms. If you want something to play at home and maybe SMALL gigs, this could fit the bill. If you're serious about your music at least start with the incredible Yamaha psr S700 /S950 series or the MOX 6 OR 8. The latter will blow your mind( MOX series)

Yep, I said it, the board is too light. Great sounds as always from Yamaha, but I cant use something so lightweight live. Plus the fact you need the power adaptor to plug in instead of the typical AC cord, making it risky when your going from place to place. If they made the board design look more like the XF with normal AC, I would buy it tomorrow.

I received a MM 6 (bought used here on Amazon) yesterday. I'm more than happy with it. I played 'til my hands couldn't take anymore. (Hey.....I'm old). The voices for piano and organ are really as good as other reviewers have stated. I didn't try other voices.
I made a discovery that I wanted to pass along. I have an old Sony sound bar that wasn't being used and, using a 3.5 mm to 1/4 in. Adapter, hooked it up to the board. It works really well!! The sound is spectacular. This wouldn't work for pro gigs unless you're playing to a very small room but for home use it's great. Since I hadn't noticed anyone mentioning something similar, I thought I'd pass it along. It saved me having to buy an Amp, and maybe others could improvise too.
