A 128-note polyphony tone generator was formed from Yamaha's MOTIF ES series (2 system, 8 inserts and mastering effects) mLAN, PLG expandability and studio connections ensure the S90 has all of the control flexibility and power of the MOTIF ES workstations.

The new piano voice of the S90 ES was designed to produce natural sounding tones. 53 MB of memory was dedicated to longer samples, drawn from a Yamaha S700 grand piano that was crafted by Yamaha's master artisans, the acoustic piano voices are articulate, sophisticated and absolutely stunning. The voice features a damper resonance effect and stretch tuning, bringing the reality of the sound even closer to the instrument itself.
