The Yamaha MO8 features a built-in phrase-based sequencer that gives you an exciting set of tools to create your own music-more quickly and easily than ever before. The Yamaha MO8 allows you to trigger arpeggios and generate new, creative ideas on the fly. You can use them along with the Mega Voices to create unusual phrases. Combine the pre-programmed phrases into complete patterns, and then use the pattern chain functions and track looping to quickly craft your own songs. The Yamaha MO8 lets you generate an unlimited amount of pattern variations, via the semi-random Remix controls.

Computer Integration
The Yamaha MO8 features remote control functions to give you hands-on control over your DAW/sequencer software-right from the panel, plus, the Yamaha MO8 employs Yamaha's exclusive Studio Connections software, which means that compatible voice and multi-part editors will treat the Yamaha MO8 like a VSTi instrument with freeze function for freeing up CPU resources. With the Yamaha MO8 you have comprehensive hardware/software integration into your music production system - making the Yamaha MO8 the heart of your music production studio - but that doesn't mean the Yamaha MO8 has to stay at home...

Perfect for Performance
The Yamaha MO8 is a light, compact keyboard that's easy to carry to your gigs. To accommodate the needs of live performance, the MO8 has a master mode that lets you easily and instantly change the settings
you need for each song.
