The Neo-Soul Electric Piano for your Yamaha Motif ES/XS/XF is a spin off of our popular sample Neo-Soul Keys Sample Library. We realize that the Motif line has a ton of electric pianos, but we felt that there was still room for that ultimate warm and phat electric piano Suitcase sound with bark.  We included 2 different electric piano sounds that will blow you away. The first sound is a warm Suitcase ’73 version with a lot of warmth and very phat coming through the Motif filters. The second electric piano is a Suitcase version, but with more grit. This second one is more applicable to hip-hop type of songs. We were able to keep the samples lightweight enough to load, but thick enough to sound very realistic with a ton of velocities to give an awesome expression. Instead of trying to lug your gigantic 200 LB Mark I Suitcase with you on your gig, simply take your memory stick or hardrive and load up your own suitcase. Best of all for those who have Motif XFs, you can load just one time and keep your Mark I Suitcase with you sitting right into RAM ready and waiting for you, whenever you boot up your Motif!

*Note: These Samples are not the same exact samples as the Kontakt Neo-Soul Keys. We used a different Suitcase for this one.

After launching the first version of our EP for the Motif about a year ago, we were able to get our feet wet by sampling a Mark I we had in our own studio. It sounded amazing, but it was not the same as the newer Suitcase we sampled, which we brought to the Kontakt version. So you know  we had to bring the same exact Kontakt version to the Motif as well. This library is exactly 500MB of the same exact samples from the Kontakt version. Best of all, each volume slider will control each element of the samples, such as sustain, bark, tine, key-up, key-down, and most important release notes. Now instead of lugging your computer around and worrying about buffer sizes, and processes, you can just simply load your samples into your Motif and it would be as if you have a real Mark I Suitcase library right inside of your Motif. And for you XF owners, you can simply load the samples into your FLASH and now you have the best sounding Electric Piano sound on the market.

Neo-Soul Electric Piano (Original Version)

The Neo-Soul Stage EP for Motif may be one of the most exciting instruments. Finally, you will get the feeling of taking a real live gritty, dirty, and grungy electric piano with you on the gig. The Stage is much different that the Suitcase. The Suitcase is very warm, phat and has a smooth sound. The Stage EP is just dirty and a joy to play with. Both versions are awesome, but the Stage has the feeling of bringing the same electric piano that is sitting in your studio or office, with you wherever you go. All of the uneven notes, clanks, bangs, and uneven tine smacks are there. This is what gives it the best character of all. Best of all. All of our EP’s for Motif are on sale, so you can take the EP’s with you wherever you go. In addition we teamed up with Dave Polich, who is one of Yamaha’s top sound designers. He designed patches for MTV and even Michael Jackson. He and I, helped to design the best programs and sounds for that real electromechanical sound!
