Since they are categorised according to music type, you can quickly and easily call up the settings you need. They also serve as convenient templates to create new, original Multis – just select a Multi, then tweak it and customise it as needed.
Four ASSIGNABLE OUTPUT jacks let you output different Parts of the MOTIF-RACK to external devices and processors. Moreover, two digital output jacks (DIGITAL and OPTICAL) ensure completely noise-free, distortion-free sound output.
