Just my opinion, but that's a complete waste of money since you can buy a Nektar Panorama P4 (and soon, the 61-key P6) and compose with Reason just like it was a hardware workstation. Infinitely more powerful than a Motif XF, since the hardware was outdated the day it hit the production line. Curious as to how the software/OS updates will go with Yamaha as well... Will it be supported 5 years from now? If so, in what capacity?
Regardless, whatever works for you, right? If you're drawn to the Motif XF and are comfortable with it, go for it!
