Is it too much to ask Yamaha and Steinberg to actually give us a proper emulation of their Motif series, instead of what they've offered us here within Halion Sonic and Halion 6. The other large keyboard manufacturers Korg and Roland have given us their ROM, yet Yamaha only releases this offering which sounds nothing like the hardware.

It's about time Yamaha gets on board now. The original Motifs are now classic.
That would cannibalise on sales of MODX and Montage which both use AWM2 from the Motif range.

Halion Sonic has samples from the vintage Motif series including the pianos. It's the same samples but they don't sound as good because the patches and programming are different.

I really wish Halion would get mpe. It doesn't seem like it would be very hard since it already has per note pitch bend, but doesn't have the mpe modulations like timber and pressure. Which is ridiculous because it has poly aftertouch, but not per channel pressure, and no modulation for cc74 per channel. Seems like it would be the easiest thing to add. Not everyone uses Cubase and the per voice modulation that Steinberg uses.
