    I'm really digg'n the sounds of the Motif rack. My friend has one in his synth rack. I love the sounds, and when they're compared to other manufactuer's sounds, they seem to sound better.

    Motif rack sounds cool but it has latency problems in multitimbral mode that Yamaha couldn't fix and does not plan to fix because it's a hardware problem.

    So, this may be why Yamaha started shipping the "ES" version? My friend has the original version, and we use it constantly w/ a few other modules. We use Cubase SX3 in his studio coupled with a midiman 8x8 interface, but we do have a few issues with lockups. We do have the option of using the serial (we're using the USB) connection on the 8x8 because we think that's were the problem is (this unit had a ROM update a couple of months ago). Other than that, everything is grand.

    I bought the original version tinking it as a nice addition to my rack.But while using it in multi mode near a 1080,drumstation and a Waldorf Pulse, latency started and it was random.Next day motif replaced with a 5080,problem solved.

    And while I was searching for the problem I found:
