  DCP PRODUCTIONS OWNER'S MANUAL   Introduction ntroduction Thank you for purchasing the “Vintage Keys” sound library for theYamaha Motif XS. This sound library contains 128 voices and 1 user arpeggio which is required for use with one of the voices.“Vintage Keys” was the second DCP Productions sound library madefor the Yamaha Motif series synthesizer/workstations – dating all theway back to 2003 and the srcinal Motif “Classic”. This, the “XS”version, represents a considerable leap forward from the Motif Classic and ES-series versions, and includes significant re-workingsof the srcinal voices, as well as a large number of brand new voices. Additional research into the keyboards and synths emulated, plusextensive use of the new features in the Motif XS (such as assignableswitches, 8 element architecture, key-off triggering, etc.) result inwhat is the most comprehensive and authentic collection of vintagekeyboard and synth sounds ever created for any Yamahaworkstation.The library is divided into two groups of 64 voices each. The firstgroup (A1 to D16) consists of electric pianos, clavinets and other “keyboard” sounds. The second group (E1 to H16) consists of classic“synthesizer “sounds. By vintage , we refer to keyboards andsynthesizers built before 1987.It would be impossible to include emulations of every electrickeyboard or synth ever built. For that reason, this collection largelycontains emulations of what could more or less be considered the greatest hits of vintage keys - the Rhodes and Wurlitzer electricpianos, the Hohner clavinet, Yamaha CP70, Yamaha FMsynthesizers, the Moog Minimoog and Memorymoog, ARP Odysseyand 2600, Sequential Prophet 5 and T8, Oberheim OB synths, andRoland Jupiter/Juno synths, with the occasional “honorable mention”synth such as the Korg Polysix and EMS Synthi AKS.  There are a number of voices which are emulations of the hallmarkkeyboard or synth sounds for particular classic songs, such as VanHalen's Jump , Edgar Winter Group's Frankenstein , Emerson Lakeand Palmer's Welcome Back My Friends (actually the song's titlewas Karn Evil 9 First Impression Part 2 ), the Who's Baba O'Riley and Won't Get Fooled Again , and so on. Again, there simply wasn'troom to include every emulation for every synth sound that ever appeared on a hit recording. This is where the Performance modecomes in handy - any voice can be altered in Performance mode (for example, changing the filter cutoff or resonance, or the attack time or release) thus creating, in effect, as many variations on the existingVintage Keys voices as the user so desires. TO LOAD THE VOICES:  FROM THE DOWNLOADED ZIP FILE TO USB DEVICE (JUMPDRIVE or FLASH DRIVE): CAUTION: Before you load “Vintage Keys” into your Motif XS, MAKE SURE you have backed up any data youwant to save onto a USB storage medium (and your computer).
