Easy Sounds Magical Pads Yamaha Motif Synth Presets
Magical Pads provides mainly warm, analog and atmospheric synthpads, but also sweeps, swells, synthbrass, and Atmo/FX-sounds. Synth pads crop up in lots of synth and sample libraries but frequently they come programmed with very specific movement in them which makes them difficult to use in a professional (“less is more”) setting. Not only are these pads are beautifully constructed, with multiple gentle, wide, fat, and spacious types, the emphasis is musicality rather as opposed to the spectacular.
Magical Pads includes:
128 new User-Voices (MOTIF XS / XF = 160 Voices)
New Synth Waveforms ( MOTIF ES = 64 MB, MOTIF XS = 142 MB, MOTIF XF = 128 MB).
The overall character of these pads is influenced by classic vintage synths such as the Jupiter-8, Oberheim Xpander or Polysix, plus new ‘virtual analog’ types such as the Nordlead or Virus.
Magical Pads usability also extends to real time control; in most cases a sound can be morphed from “bright” to “dark” using the mod wheel.
Many voices of the MOTIX XS/XF-version explore the expanded sonic possibilities of Xpanded Articlulation. These Voices (tagged AF1&2) give you maximum sound flexibility, incorporating Assignable Functions (AF1 + AF2) and alternate element combinations. The cross-fade of the sounds is smooth because of element’s release parameter settings.
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.
