Guys and gals, it appears the new MM6 (A.K.A. The Mini-Mo) could possibly have "arranger" capabilites. Check out the specs and have a good "hard look" at the pattern control to the left of the keyboard (inlarge the pic, it's very easy to see).
The specs also state:
Play the Keyboard Along with a Pattern
The patterns in the MM6 were created to give you a wide range of different musical genres simply by playing back the pattern tracks. Moreover, you can easily record chord changes to both the patterns and your real time keyboard performance in the Song mode.
It only makes sense too considering the MM6 has many similiar features to the PSR line. The control knobs (from what I can see) seem to be from the DJX series.
My main concern however is the POLY. If this is a Motif (classic) based sound engine, taking that into use along with the arps and controller functions such as the sustain pedal will eat the poly faster than a rabid monkey on a cupcake!
There were many complaints about the original Motif Classics limited poly, and I can't see the poly not bottoming out after just a few tracks or chords on this unit. However, this may be an affordable way for some of you to get into a basic synth. Sadly I don't see any place to store user voices either.
Based on the specs It also is bundled with DAW Software. Not sure which program it is though. http://www.yamaha-europe.com/yamaha_euro...0_MM/index.html
