Interesting concept without soul

Leftystrings, 02.11.2018
The MODX has a lot of features to offer. Motion sequence is an interesting concept and the user interface is quite well designed.

Personally I think the sound lacks character. It sounds quite sterile and without inspiration.

That is a shame, because the overal build quality, operational ease and playability is quite okay. But it is the sound that makes you want to play to instrument...

Class Synthi with many possibilities, but sometimes limited in size

Jurek, 25.09.2018
The synthi delivers a crystal clear quality, and that also over digitally, both for live as well as a bit studio designed.

positive

- Complete DX7 synthesis and significant extensions (64 votes)
- Complete AWM2 a-la Motif XS (128 votes)
- Easy updates / sample / sound recording
- Large color touch screen, great price!
- Good, light workmanship, seems less cheap than on the photos / videos
- Keyboard is quiet and has a short way, I personally like very much

negative

- Artificially scrambled digital audio: While mounting (identical interior) up to 192kHz in digital out / in offers, MODX has been reduced to 44.1kHz! The people at Yamaha should have noticed that today's digital standard starts at 48kHz ... So is the combination with other digital devices that like to use 48kHz then (Korg, Roland ...) partially not possible, only with complicated wrapper software constructions. Dear Yamaha, you are allowed to unlock 48kHz for the MODX, and yet it is sufficient to distinguish it from the premium 192kHz. Not so stingy please.

- ADSHR without curve parameters. This has virtually every modern VSTi! Log-Lin-Exp Curve parameters for Attack / Decay / Release please!

- No unison, one could offer with macro functions, with so many voices

- Pedal goals do not let not put globally

- Midi channels can not be set individually by part! Sometimes you want to bass on 1, the remaining layers on 2. Doof.

- As a DAW controller still extremely rudimentary, while so much potential

All in all, finally, a contemporary digital synth, but with some annoying restrictions that will hopefully be improved :)
