The arranged performance demos were recorded and arranged with external sequencer. Some additional voice tracks with pads + soundeffects were used in Venus Overture. The performances of the MOX, MOTIF-RACK XS and S90 XS versions are sounding very similar like above.
„Phat Analog“ was produced by Peter Krischker. This timeless voice- and sample library Jupiter 8 pads & arpeggios and many other sample-based analog synthsounds.
A main emphasis are the typical Minimoog synthleads. But also other spectacular synthleads like sync-lead (oscillator sync) or distorted leads with similar sound like Jan Hammer or Jordan Rudess are highlights of the product.
Further there are many synths of the categories synthbass, synthstrings, synthpads, synthbass, sequencer and noise soundeffects.
The Samples were produced mainly with the famous synths Minimoog and Jupiter 8 („JP-8“).
For musical reference recordings of musicians or bands like Pink Floyd, Manfred Mann (Earth Band), Camel, Lake, Tangerine Dream, Jean Michel Jarre, Jordan Rudess (Dream Theather, Liquid Tension Experiment), Jan Hammer, Steve Winwood and many other were used.
The voices are playable highly dynamic using velocity, modulation wheel, knobs, ribbon control and assignable functions.
The effects of the voices are very different – sometimes very spacious, sometimes absolutely dry for getting real vintage sound.
You can set the effect depth very quickly using ASSIGN 1 (Reverb) und ASSIGN 2 (Delay).
The vibrato of the synthleads can be controlled with the modulation wheel and sometimes additional with aftertouch. In the XS Performances FC1 und FC2 are routed to control #001 (modulation wheel) for controlling vibrato with foot control. This might be helpful if you need both hands for playing in case of split performances.
The ribbon controller is assigned many times to parameters filter attack or portamento time.
Using the Assignabe Functions (AF1&2) of the XS-series you can select alternate sound settings.
The versions for MOX, MOTIF-RACK XS, MOTIF-RACK ES, MO6 / MO8 and S90 ES were maded based on the Preset Waveforms, which are including also excellent analog synthwaves, but with limited space.
For MOTIF XS / XF und MOTIF ES there is an additional User Voice Bank (128 Voices), which includes voices without samples, based on internal preset waves. This version doesn’t require installation of optional DIMMs. Basically using the sample-based version is recommended because of the higher waveform quality. But surely you will find also some very interesting alternate voices in the version without samples.
The 32 split-performances for the XS-series are using the left manual for accompaniment (drums, bass, pad/arpeggio) and the right manual for the synthlead-part. Some of the performances are modified MOTIF XS Factory Performances.
Different from the voices the performances are not only using analog synthsounds but also combinations with other instruments for getting a big variety of sounds and styles.
MOTIF XF: The User Waveforms and Samples of this library can be loaded to pre-installed SDRAM or to the optional Flash Memory (Flash Memory Expansion Modules FL1 + FL2).
MOTIF XS: For loading the soundset installation of optional DIMMs (2 x 128 MB or more) is needed.
