Product Description

Mark works on a Motif ES and although the book is written primarily from this perspective, the original Motif (which Mark used to own) is fully included, with special sidebars where a button prod or screen may differ. The eBook has now also been updated to include Motif XS.

Mercifully free from jargon (Yamaha's or anyone else's), this book simply tells it like it is. Mark does not try to cover every twist and turn of the sequencer engine, preferring to get you familiar and comfortable with the main processes and techniques and leave the ‘every option' explanations for another day. And actually that day may be coming not too far hence since Mark Johnston is already planning no less than four other Motif book projects!

Presented as a series of short ‘classes' in which all of the main sequencer features are covered, Commanding The Yamaha Motif Vol 1: Recording & Editing contains excellent graphics, and works brilliantly as both an e-book (i.e. you can read it on your desktop) or of course in hard copy (you can print out the PDF if you fancy reading this type of tome in bed or on the couch).

Available exclusively through and currently in download-only format, we welcome Mark Johnston to the family of experts. An impressive debut. Go Mark!
