Here's the highlights of the Summer 2003 show.  The winner, imo, is Yamaha, with the shocking release of the Motif ES


The Motif ES

61, 76 and 88 key versions with a 175mb Rom, 128 voice polyphony, 16 eqs, 8 insert effects; support for 512 mb of samples

The 61-key Motif ES 6, 76-key Motif ES 7 and 88-key Motif ES 8 feature the largest and most musical Wave ROM ever provided in a workstation keyboard (175 MB in 16 bit linear format). At the heart of the ES series is an advanced new tone generator chip which includes a generous 128 notes of polyphony, new filter algorithms and massive DSP power (16 three-band EQ, eight Insert effects, two system effects and two master effects in Song and Pattern Mode).  Tweak:  Check out for more info. 

Available Sept 2003

Yamaha 01X


"Using the same 96kHz DSP technology found in Yamaha's DM2000, DM1000, 02R96 and 01V96 digital mixers, the 01X will function as a stand-alone, total recall digital mixer for recording or live performance. Signal quality is maintained with high quality mic pre-amps and +48V phantom power on balanced XLR, TRS and line input connectors. Full dynamics processing, including compressors, gates, limiters and 4-band parametric EQ on every one of the 28 digital mixing channels, plus two 32-bit effects processors means that the 01X puts no strain on the host computer for mixing or audio processing. Fully motorized faders ensure that mixes can be recalled and accurately tracked at the touch of a button."



The SPX2000 inherits the user interface and common programs from its predecessors, while bringing a new dimension to sound quality with 96kHz audio DSP and advanced REV-X reverb algorithm—a whole new generation of Yamaha reverb programs with rich reverberation tone and extremely smooth, transparent decay.
