If you are looking for some new piano inspiration for your Motif, then finally we are able to partner with AcousticsampleS to bring to you the absolute best piano sounds for the Yamaha Motif keyboards. As with all of Gospel Musicians instruments, we pride ourselves on bringing sounds that are ultra realistic and with a ton of character.


The A-Pian Grand piano is and old French Gaveau piano. Gaveau was a French piano manufacturer. The company was established in 1847 in Paris and used to be one of the three largest piano makers in France (after Érard and Pleyel). This particular piano was build in 1960 and is referred to as a "crapaud" ("Petite Grand" in English), which means that it's a little smaller than a "quart de queue" (baby grand). It has a very particular sound, very bright and full of inharmonicity in the bass due to the short length of the strings. This library was our first attempt at finding new ways of sampling a piano. We tried to reduce the size and still keeping the most important parts.


Sound Features:


  • Full Samples with natural decays (No Loops)
  • Release Samples
  • Resonance effects when sustain pedal is pressed
  • 3-Layer Rich samples
  • Fits on 512MB Flash or RAM

Load Motif XF Libraries into Montage/MODX


The Yamaha Montage is fully compatible with the XF libraries; as a result, you can use the XF format to load into your Montage


Here is a Video demonstrating how to load the XF Libraries in the Montage/MODX.


The issue with our library is that we load our Voices in User Bank 3 on the XF, because most people have custom user voices on User Banks 1-2 that they don’t want to overwrite, so out of consideration we use User Bank 3. 


On the Montage/MODX, when you select our Library it may look as if it may not show up, but you need to keep scrolling all the way down using the Arrows at the Bottom Right in order to skip past User Banks 1-2 and get to the Library sounds.
