It’s been a good while since I’ve been here, and my absence is due to my having been forced to sell my beloved MotifXF6, due to severe financial hardship. A while back, though, I was able to pick up a used M-Audio Axiom Pro 49, and (with Reaper, coupled with a few VSTi’s) I am able to do a little music making.  However, I TRULY miss my workstation, and its sounds.

Recently, I came across information that there was a MotifXF VST package that was available, and I wonder if anyone, here, has any knowledge of it.  If it comes even close to the great sounds of the XF, I would get it in a heartbeat.  If anyone knows anything about its worthiness (or lack of it) please let me know.  I can find no reviews of it, online.

Advanced thanks,
Nathan

Oh....and STAY SAFE.

Greetings!  The Motif XF does come with a downloadable Editor which allows control of the synth, maybe that’s what you’ve heard about.  I don’t know of any VST’s that emulate any of the Motif’s, sorry.
Best of Luck!

Thanks, Javelin.

I appreciate your input - and willingness to help, but I don’t think that the MotifFX’s Editor would work for me.  That’s also because of thinking that the use of the Editor would require the synth, itself.  I no longer have my XF, but was hoping that the MotifXF VST package might have been worthy enough to avail myself of that workstation’s fantastic sounds.

The XF was sampled for Native Instrument’s Kontakt, and NI has a Kontakt Player available for free. I’ve also seen a so-called “Motif XF VST Plugin” being sold. I have no familiarity with them. However, such sampling typically is limited (often severely) in comparison to the dynamic control a synth like the XF is capable of.

I searched and found a YouTube video of a Motif-XF VST, but it sounded pretty darn cheesy.  I wouldn’t use it.
