About S90 ES

The S90 ES was released in September 2005 and is to the Motif ES as the S90 is to the original Motif.

This means that the S90 ES version has all the sonic power plus of a Motif ES, but withholds the sampling and sequencing capabilities.

The ‘plus’ is unquestionably the most refined and authentic acoustic piano voices ever offered on a digital keyboard. Comprising no less than 53 MB of brand new, multi-sampled stereo samples, the new pianos also make use of the ES’s new damper reverb effects and half-damper pedal capability.

Polyphony has been increased from 64 to 128-voice, and internal effects processing has been enhanced with eight Insert effects, two System effects, and a separate Mastering effects processor.
