This expansive library, derived from the world famous Yamaha Motif Music Production Synthesizer, features a wide assortment of â€œBread and Butterâ€ piano, electric piano, organ and clav Voices that are on tour and on stage across the country. Best of all, these performances can be enjoyed on the companyâ€™s lightweight MX series keyboards, which weigh less than 10 pounds each.
â€œThe B.O.M.B. was created by keyboard players for keyboard players who donâ€™t want to sacrifice sound quality for portability,â€ said Nate Tschetter, marketing manager, Music Production, Yamaha Corporation of America. â€œThe sound quality of the Motif Sound Engine, portability of the MX and incredible usefulness of the B.O.M.B. give keyboardists a great â€˜grab and goâ€™ instrument for rehearsals. Itâ€™s also the perfect â€˜second keyboardâ€™ for adding synth textures to your piano, organ or weighted action synth on a gig.â€
The B.O.M.B. performance library is available for purchase at Yamaha MusicSoft for $9.99 until December 31 (regular price is $19.99), or free with a purchase of an MX series synthesizer between now and the end of the year. To download, please visit http://4wrd.it/THEBOMB.
