Using the Yamaha MX49 for Soundtrack Production

Although I’m best know in musical circles as a guitarist and bassist, I am also a dabbler in keyboard composition. Recently I purchased the impressive Yamaha MX49, an affordable synth with over 1000 sounds taken from the amazing Motif synthesizer line. This fantastic compact keyboard has great tones, beats, arpeggiator functionality and much more. Below are some videos I’ve produced that feature the sounds of the MX49. One is a soundtrack challenge from one of my YouTube Subscribers. I recorded all the music for his video montage after playing with the MX49 for only about 1 hour. This is a powerful compositional tool.
