Decent sound, lots of features for a good price
Leftystrings, 02.11.2018
The MODX is a trimmed down version of the must more expensive MONTAGE. It offers approx 80 to 85% of the features of it bigger brother.

The sound is quite decent, however not so full as workstations like the KORG KRONOS. The string, wind and guitar instruments sound quite good: the CSX piano is not impressive at all.

The UI interface is well designed and implemented. The touch screen can however sometimes be a little unresponsive.

It is very easy to build complex soundscapes by layering different sounds with motion controls to make them more interesting.

The key bed feels a bit cheap, but playable.

All in all a good deal as a secondary keyboard next to your main keyboard.

If you're looking for this as a replacement for all your FM needs, look elsewhere
Nike Kid, 22.10.2018
Although this synth has the FM-X engine and has a huge potential for creating FM patches, the offer of presets that use only FM is very low. The synth has 10% FM-only patches and 90% AWM2 (sample based) or AWM2 / FM patches. Also the FM only patches it seems to me lackluster compared to the likes of older Yamahas such as TG77, FS1R or even the DX7MK2.

The touch screen is a bit of a sketch. I've found myself at times touching it several times before I get a reaction especially at the lower end of the screen. You also spend a lot of time looking at this screen, so it kind of defeats the purpose of not making computer based music. It is very bright compared to other buttons.

The build is kind of sculpture, it's true it's very light and portable.

I had only one issue with it's firmware once. Instead of booting it showed a blank black screen with a prompter dashline blinking. I had to shut it down and power it on again to get it working, so I guess there is a risk of this happening after using it for several years.
