The product price includes a one year warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Yamaha MX61 II

Brand-New FM Essentials iOS App

The Yamaha MX61 offers a direction connection to iPhones and iPads via the Apple Lightning Connection Kit (sold separately), which provides you with 256 FM sounds produced by an FM engine. Offering four operators and ten voices, the FM Essentials app extends the MX61's capabilities and allows you to produce everything from classic '80s sounds to cutting-edge modern EDM.

1000 MOTIF Sounds

At the heart of the MX61 Synthesizer is the MOTIF engine which delivers 1000 sounds and 128 voice polyphony. From authentic sounds such as acoustic pianos, e-pianos, strings and drums to complex synth and electronic sounds with eight elements, the MX61 offers all of the iconic MOTIF sounds.

Split/Layer Performance Modes

Performance Mode on the Motifs has always been the place to find instant inspiration and the MX61 is no different. You can easily combine two voices to play on the keyboard using the dedicated Split and Layer buttons each with their own intelligent arpeggiator and a dedicated part for a drum track to create evocative performances that feel like a whole band is playing. The 128 performances on the MX61 are all user editable, but come programmed with the latest club friendly beats.

16-Part Multi Timbral and 128-Note Polyphony

Each performance contains not only the three sounds described above, but all the settings for a complete 16-part multi setting for play. You can switch between any of the 16 parts without the sound cutting off. With 128 notes of polyphony there are plenty of notes to play even the densest sequences from your DAW. These features make the MX61 the perfect tone generator solution for live performance and live playback of DAW MIDI tracks.

Master-Keyboard Functions and Integrated Audio Interface

For studio performances, the Yamaha MX61 Synth transforms into a comprehensive master-keyboard with an integrated audio interface. This allows you to directly control the important functions of a sequencer - such as Steinberg Cubase - through the dedicated DAW controller knobs and buttons. Even VST plug-ins are right at your fingertips. Thanks to the class compliant technology there's no driver installation needed, simply connect the MX61 to your PC or Mac via USB.

A Complete Suite of Music Production Software Included

The MX series of music production synthesizers are not just hardware synths - thanks to the bundled software they become a complete music production solution. The included Steinberg Cubase Al features 48 audio tracks and 64 MIDI tracks, notation and built-in VST effects, allowing you to produce complete music productions. The MX61 also includes Steinberg Prologue and the Yamaha YC-3B organ emulator which provides you with compelling VSTs to get started. Additionally, there are Remote Template editors for setting up controls of various VSTs.
