Before I decided on this workstation, I did extensive research. After a few months of testing this product out at my local music store, and reading reviews online I finally decided this was the one I wanted. I have not regretted buying the Yamaha Motif XS and I'm sure that it will stay with me for years to come.

I use this piano at my house as well as my church. Many of the sounds from this Workstation are very realistic, and that's what I like about it. There are many Youtube videos with sound examples. I also recommend checking out my Youtube video I recently uploaded [...] This video will give you a small preview of the creative power this great product has. Its usable for any genre of music. Don't hesitate to buy.

I have both the Motifxs8 and the Motifxf8. I absolute love love love them both. Many hours of enjoyment have been spent playing these instruments. Has the touch of an actual piano and sounds absolutely awesome!

Verified Purchase
The absolute standard of the industry, great feel and sound. This version of the motif is not very mobile (88 Keys) and not that easy to use for new music creation. Compared to Pro Logic or Pro tools, at least the way I use it.

Then again, very glad I bought it.
