The MX88 features a Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) weighted action. GHS weighted action has a heavier response in the low keys and a lighter response in the high keys. This provides realistic acoustic piano touch and response. Special matte black key tops absorb moisture and remain tactile after extended use, perfect for long practice or performance sessions.
Beyond its acoustic qualities, the MX88 features an impressive selection of keyboard voices. Choose from authentic re-creations of classic tine and reed electric pianos or retro tonewheel organs with a rotary speaker effect. There are also punchy and percussive Clav sounds when you want to get funky. This wide variety of sounds makes the MX88 perfect for the stage, studio or worship service.
MOTIF Sound Engine Voices consist of up to eight Elements. These Elements can be layered for a thick, fat sound or zoned so a different Element plays in different parts of the keyboard. You can also switch between Elements by velocity for extreme dynamics or randomize Elements for anything from subtle variation to experimental sound.
FM Essential is a FREE 4-Operator FM synthesizer app for iOS. The standard version features 10 Voices, but connecting the MX88 Music Synthesizer (via the Apple Lightning to USB Camera Adapter – not included) unlocks 271 FM Voices, from classic 80s to cutting-edge modern EDM. Full voice-editing capabilities are also unlocked.
FM Essential also features built-in effects, EQ, drum phrases and a step sequencer for automating your control changes.
Virtual Circuitry Modeling (VCM) re-creates the sound and behavior of vintage effects and high-end studio signal processors by modeling the circuits down to the original analog component level.
The MX88 is USB audio and MIDI class-compliant, which allows you to record and playback stereo audio to and from your computer or iOS device. This is perfect for recording the MX88 into your DAW and listening to your mixes through speakers or headphones.
However, the MX88 does more than connect to your DAW - it's also a dedicated control surface. Use the onboard transport controls with your DAW and interact with plug-in parameters via the control knobs. There are dozens of built-in Remote Control Templates for interacting with popular soft synths and plug-ins and a 16-channel MIDI interface for using the MX88 as both a keyboard controller and tone generator.
