PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE PROCEEDING
* Please keep this manual in a safe place for future reference.
WARNING
Always follow the basic precautions listed below to avoid the possibility of serious injury or even death from electrical
shock, short-circuiting, damages, fire or other hazards. These precautions include, but are not limited to, the following:
Power supply/AC power adaptor
Water warning
• Only use the voltage specified as correct for the instrument. The required
voltage is printed on the name plate of the instrument.
• Use the specified adaptor (PA-5D, PA-150 or an equivalent recommended by
Yamaha) only. Using the wrong adaptor can result in damage to the instrument
or overheating.
• Check the electric plug periodically and remove any dirt or dust which may have
accumulated on it.
• Do not place the AC adaptor cord near heat sources such as heaters or radiators,
and do not excessively bend or otherwise damage the cord, place heavy objects
on it, or place it in a position where anyone could walk on, trip over, or roll
anything over it.
• Do not expose the instrument to rain, use it near water or in damp or wet
conditions, or place containers on it containing liquids which might spill into
any openings. If any liquid such as water seeps into the instrument, turn off the
power immediately and unplug the power cord from the AC outlet. Then have
the instrument inspected by qualified Yamaha service personnel.
• Never insert or remove an electric plug with wet hands.
Fire warning
• Do not put burning items, such as candles, on the unit.
A burning item may fall over and cause a fire.
If you notice any abnormality
Do not open
• Do not open the instrument or attempt to disassemble the internal parts or
modify them in any way. The instrument contains no user-serviceable parts. If it
should appear to be malfunctioning, discontinue use immediately and have it
inspected by qualified Yamaha service personnel.
• If the AC adaptor cord or plug becomes frayed or damaged, or if there is a
sudden loss of sound during use of the instrument, or if any unusual smells or
smoke should appear to be caused by it, immediately turn off the power switch,
disconnect the adaptor plug from the outlet, and have the instrument inspected
by qualified Yamaha service personnel.
CAUTION
Always follow the basic precautions listed below to avoid the possibility of physical injury to you or others, or damage
to the instrument or other property. These precautions include, but are not limited to, the following:
Power supply/AC power adaptor
• When removing the electric plug from the instrument or an outlet, always hold
the plug itself and not the cord.
• Unplug the AC power adaptor when not using the instrument, or during
electrical storms.
• Do not connect the instrument to an electrical outlet using a multiple-connector.
Doing so can result in lower sound quality, or possibly cause overheating in the
outlet.
Location
• Do not expose the instrument to excessive dust or vibrations, or extreme cold or
heat (such as in direct sunlight, near a heater, or in a car during the day) to
prevent the possibility of panel disfiguration or damage to the internal
components.
• Do not place the instrument in an unstable position where it might accidentally
fall over.
• Before moving the instrument, remove all connected adaptor and other cables.
• When setting up the product, make sure that the AC outlet you are using is
easily accessible. If some trouble or malfunction occurs, immediately turn off
the power switch and disconnect the plug from the outlet. Even when the power
switch is turned off, electricity is still flowing to the product at the minimum
level. When you are not using the product for a long time, make sure to unplug
the power cord from the wall AC outlet.
• Use only the stand specified for the instrument. When attaching the stand or
rack, use the provided screws only. Failure to do so could cause damage to the
internal components or result in the instrument falling over.
• Do not use the instrument in the vicinity of a TV, radio, stereo equipment,
mobile phone, or other electric devices. Otherwise, the instrument, TV, or radio
may generate noise.

Connections
• Before connecting the instrument to other electronic components, turn off the
power for all components. Before turning the power on or off for all
components, set all volume levels to minimum. Also, be sure to set the volumes
of all components at their minimum levels and gradually raise the volume
controls while playing the instrument to set the desired listening level.
Maintenance
• When cleaning the instrument, use a soft, dry cloth. Do not use paint thinners,
solvents, cleaning fluids, or chemical-impregnated wiping cloths.
• Do not use the instrument/device or headphones for a long period of time at a
high or uncomfortable volume level, since this can cause permanent hearing
loss. If you experience any hearing loss or ringing in the ears, consult a
physician.
Saving data
Saving and backing up your data
• Saved data may be lost due to malfunction or incorrect operation.
Save important data to a USB storage device/or other external device such as a
computer. (pages 69, 76)

Handling caution
• Never insert or drop paper, metallic, or other objects into the gaps on the panel
or keyboard. If this happens, turn off the power immediately and unplug the
power cord from the AC outlet. Then have the instrument inspected by qualified
Yamaha service personnel.
• To protect against data loss through media damage, we recommend that you
save your important data onto two USB storage devices or other external device
such as a computer.
• Do not place vinyl, plastic or rubber objects on the instrument, since this might
discolor the panel or keyboard.
• Do not rest your weight on, or place heavy objects on the instrument, and do not
use excessive force on the buttons, switches or connectors.
Yamaha cannot be held responsible for damage caused by improper use or modifications to the instrument, or data that is lost or destroyed.

Main Features
■ High-Quality Voices for Keyboard Performance
Page 15
The MM6/MM8 contains a wide range of high-quality voices (many based on the
Motif Series voices), ranging from acoustic musical instruments to unique synthesizer
sounds. Use the Category Search function to quickly call up the sounds you want,
based on their instrument type. The MM8 features an 88-key “Graded Hammer” keyboard with action that is virtually indistinguishable from an actual acoustic piano.
■ Play the Keyboard Along with a Pattern
Page 23
The patterns in the MM6/MM8 were created to give you a wide range of different
musical genres simply by playing back the pattern tracks. Moreover, you can easily
record chord changes to both the patterns and your real time keyboard performance in
the Song mode.
■ Use the Arpeggio
Page 20
The versatile Arpeggio feature automatically plays drum percussion phrases, guitar
phrases, and analog synthesizer style phrases in response to the keys you play.
■ Save and Switch Between Performance Settings (Performance
Memory)
Page 59
The Performance Memory lets you conveniently create and store combined settings
for the voices you play (including keyboard splits and layers), the patterns you want to
assign to backing tracks, and other important settings for live performance. These performance settings can be easily recalled by a single button press.
■ Controlling Filter and EG in Real Time
Page 41
You can control the filter (cutoff and resonance) and EG (attack and release) in real
time by using four knobs on the panel. Even these detailed sonic changes can be saved
in the Performance Memory.
■ Save Performance Data to a USB Storage Device
Page 66
Transferring data between the MM6/MM8 and your computer is easy because the
MM6/MM8 can store data and setting to standard USB storage devices.
■ Create Music with Your Computer and the Bundled DAW Software
Page 80
You can connect the MM6/MM8 to your computer using a USB cable, and transfer
MIDI data to and from DAW software. With the Bundled DAW software the MM6/
MM8 becomes the central tone generator for your computer based music production
system.

Chord Basics
Two or more notes played together constitute a “chord”.
The most basic chord type is the “triad” consisting of three notes: the
root, third, and fifth degrees of the corresponding scale. A C major
triad, for example, is made up of the notes C (the root), E (the third
note of the C major scale), and G (the fifth note of the C major scale).
3rd
Root
3rd
In the C major triad shown above, the lowest note is the “root” of the
chord (this is the chord’s “root position” ... using other chord notes for the lowest note results in “inversions”). The root is the central sound of the chord, which supports and anchors the other chord notes.
The distance (interval) between adjacent notes of a triad in root position is either a major or minor third.
Major third–four half steps (semitones)
Minor third–three half steps (semitones)
The lowest interval in our root-position triad (between the root and the third) determines whether the
triad is a major or minor chord, and we can shift the highest note up or down by a semitone to produce
two additional chords, as shown below.

Minor chord

Augmented chord
C aug

Diminished chord

The basic characteristics of the chord sound remain intact even if we change the order of the notes to
create different inversions. Successive chords in a chord progression can be smoothly connected, for
example, by choosing the appropriate inversions (or chord “voicings”).
● Reading Chord Names
Chord names tell you just about everything you need to know about a
chord (other than the inversion/voicing). The chord name tells you what
the root of the chord is, whether it is a major, minor, or diminished
chord, whether it requires a major or flatted seventh, what alterations or
tensions it uses ... all at a glance.

NOTE
• Inversion of the 7sus4 and m7(11) chords are not recognized if the
notes shown in parentheses are omitted.
• The auto accompaniment will sometimes not change when related
chords are played in sequence (e.g. some minor chords followed by the

Storing/Saving Data
In this section we’ll look at the procedures for setting up and formatting USB storage
devices, as well as for saving and loading data to and from them.
A USB storage device is a large-volume memory medium used for storing data.
When a USB storage device is inserted in this instrument’s USB TO DEVICE terminal,
user songs created on the instruments and memorized settings can be saved to or
loaded from the device.
A USB storage device can also be used to transfer song data downloaded from the
Internet to the instrument.
If you don’t have a USB storage device, you will need to purchase one (or more, as
needed).
The instrument does not necessarily support all commercially available USB storage
devices. Yamaha cannot guarantee operation of USB storage devices that you purchase. Before purchasing a USB storage device, please consult your Yamaha dealer,
or an authorized Yamaha distributor (see list at end the Owner’s Manual) for advice.
● To protect your data (write-protect switch)
Some USB storage devices are equipped with a write-protect switch.
To prevent accidental erasure of important data saved on a USB storage device, slide the write-protect
switch on the device to the “protect” position. When saving data, make sure that the write-protect
switch is set to the “overwrite” position.

IMPORTANT
• In order to play songs copied to a USB storage device from a
computer or other device, the songs must be stored either in
the USB storage device’s root directory or a first-level/secondlevel folder in the root directory. Songs stored in these location
can be selected and played as USB songs (page 26). Songs
stored in third-level-folders created inside a second-level folder
cannot be selected and played by this instrument.

Formatting USB storage media
When a USB storage device is connected or media is
inserted, a message may appear prompting you to format
the device/media. If so, execute the Format operation (page
68).
CAUTION
• The format operation overwrites any previously existing data.
Make sure that the media you are formatting does not contain
important data.
NOTE
• Other USB devices such as a computer keyboard or mouse cannot
be used.
● Connecting USB device
• When connecting a USB device to the [USB TO
DEVICE] terminal, make sure that the connector on the
device is appropriate and that it is connected in the
proper direction.
CAUTION
• Though the instrument supports the USB 1.1 standard, you
can connect and use a USB 2.0 storage device with the instrument. However, note that the transfer speed is that of USB 1.1.
● Using USB Storage Devices
By connecting the instrument to a USB storage device, you
can save data you’ve created to the connected device, as
well as read data from the connected device.
NOTE
• Although CD-R/RW drives can be used to read data to the instrument, they cannot be used for saving data.
To protect your data (write-protect)
To prevent important data from being inadvertently erased,
apply the write-protect provided with each storage device
or media. If you are saving data to the USB storage device,
make sure to disable write-protect.
Connecting/removing USB storage device
Before removing the media from the device, make sure that
the instrument is not accessing data (such as in the Save,
Copy and Delete operations).
CAUTION
• Avoid frequently turning the power on/off to the USB storage
device, or connecting/disconnecting the device too often.
Doing so may result in the operation of the instrument “freezing” or hanging up. While the instrument is accessing data
(such as during Save, Copy, Delete, Load and Format operations) or is mounting the USB storage device (shortly after the
connection), do NOT unplug the USB connector, do NOT
remove the media from the device, and do NOT turn the power
off to either device. Doing so may corrupt the data on either or
both devices.

Appendix
Troubleshooting
Problem
Possible Cause and Solution
A popping sound is heard when the instrument is
turned on or off.
This is normal, and is caused by the brief current surge produced
when the device is turned on or off. Be sure to turn the volume down
when turning the device on or off.
Noise is produced when using a mobile phone.
To prevent this, turn off the mobile phone or use it further away from
the instrument. Using a mobile phone in close proximity to the instrument may produce interference.
Check the Local Control on/off setting. (See page 78).
There is no sound even when the keyboard is
played or when a song or pattern is being played
back.
The pattern or song does not play back when the
[START/STOP] button is pressed.
Is the FILE CONTROL display showing? The instrument’s keyboard,
etc., will not produce any sound while the FILE CONTROL display is
showing. Press the [EXIT] button to return to the MAIN display.
Is External Clock set to ON?
Make sure External Clock is set to OFF; refer to “External Clock” on
page 78.
Make sure that the pattern volume is set to an appropriate level. (See
page 53).
The pattern does not sound properly.
Is the split point set at an appropriate key for the chords you are playing? Set the split point an appropriate key (page 52).
Is the [FINGER] button indicator lit? If not, press the [FINGER} button
so that it does light.
Only the pattern rhythm plays even if the [FINGER] button indicator is lit when pattern number 113 through 168 is selected.
This is normal. Pattern numbers 113 through 168 only include a
rhythm part, so not other pattern parts will play. Select a pattern number other than 113–168 to hear parts other than the rhythm part.
Not all of the voices seem to sound, or the sound
seems to be cut off.
Or, the pattern or song sound is interrupted when
playing on the keyboard.
The instrument is polyphonic up to a maximum of 32 notes.
If the Dual voice or Split voice is being used and a style or song is playing back at the same time, some notes/sounds may be omitted (or
“stolen”) from the accompaniment or song.
The footswitch (for sustain) seems to produce
the opposite effect.
For example, pressing the footswitch cuts off the
sound and releasing it sustains the sounds.
The polarity of the footswitch is reserved. Make sure that the footswitch plug is properly connected to the SUSTAIN jack before turning
on the power.
The sound of the voice changes from note to
note.
This is normal. The AWM tone generation method uses multiple
recordings (samples) of an instrument across the range of the keyboard; thus, the actual sound of the voice may be slightly different from
note to note.
The [FINGER] button indicator does not light
even when the button is pressed.
Is the pattern selection screen showing? Be sure to press the [PATTERN] button before using any of the pattern-related functions.
When a voice is changed during recording the
DSP effect is not applied as expected.
During recording the DSP type set before recording was begun is
maintained. For this reason the expected DSP effect may not be
applied if you change voices. This is not a malfunction.
The volume changes when DSP is turned ON or
OFF.
Some voices change in volume when the DSP effects are turned ON
or OFF. This is not a malfunction.
The DSP effect doesn’t sound as expected.
Only one DSP effect can be active at a time for the entire instrument. It
is for this reason that, for example, the DSP effect may not sound as
expected when playing the keyboard while playing back a song or pattern loaded from an external device. The DSP settings are saved with
the song and pattern data. This is not a malfunction.
The “OverCurrent” is shown in the upper-right
area of the MAIN display and the USB device
does not respond.
Communication with the USB device has been shut down because of
the overcurrent to the USB device. Disconnect the device from the
[USB TO DEVICE] terminal, then turn on the power of the instrument.

Voice List
■ Maximum Polyphony ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ●
The instrument has 32-note maximum polyphony. This means
that it can play a maximum of up to 32 notes at once, regardless of what functions are used. Auto accompaniment uses a
number of the available notes, so when auto accompaniment
is used the total number of available notes for playing on the
keyboard is correspondingly reduced. The same applies to the
Split Voice and Song functions. If the maximum polyphony is
exceeded, earlier played notes will be cut off and the most
recent notes have priority (last note priority).
NOTE
• The Voice List includes MIDI program change numbers for
each voice. Use these program change numbers when
playing the instrument via MIDI from an external device.
• Program Numbers 001 to 128 directly relate to MIDI Program Change Numbers 000 to 127. That is, Program Numbers and Program Change Numbers differ by a value of 1.
Remember to take this into consideration.
• Some voices may sound continuously or have a long
decay after the notes have been released while the sustain pedal (footswitch) is held.

Drum Kit List
•“
” indicates that the drum sound is the same as “GM Standard Kit 1”.
• Each percussion voice uses one note.
• The MIDI Note # and Note are actually one octave lower than keyboard Note # and Note. For example,
in “128: Standard Kit 1”, the “Seq Click H” (Note# 36/Note C1) corresponds to (Note# 24/Note C0).
• Key Off: Keys marked “O” stop sounding the instant they are released.
• Voices with the same Alternate Note Number (*1 ... 4) cannot be played simultaneously. (They are
designed to be played alternately with each other.)
