Super Yamaha!
Myguel, 20.10.2019
Hello friends!
I bought this unit in the MODX6 version.
A few words for those who are "tormented by choice."
From Yamaha there were earlier ES7 and AN1x.
In the new instrument and ready-made presets, others and the concept itself is different, I have not yet encountered such a thing and really like it.
On the one hand, it’s clear that for the real development of all the possibilities it will take some time, on the other hand, if there is the slightest hint of fantasy - a lot of ready-made material, select the button and create on the go.
Large responsive and understandable screen (I can compare with Roland V-synt and Korg Pa1xpro) with the ability to adjust the text size, which is very convenient for me personally.
A huge number of ready-made performances (many have not yet been beaten) for any style / direction and the possibility of their instant change.
The optimal amount of the most necessary controls, nothing more and everything is in place.
"The magic twister is something!! ...)
Not big, but not small, light, but in moderation, just for the second tier, when the solo is on top, and the piano is below))
Perfectly fits as one keyboard in a group for a scene (there is a drawback - plastic) (.
In my opinion, Yamaha was able to create a very original and different tool from others.
Actually, you can’t even see something similar in this price category if you do not need a workstation.
A variety of ready-made presets and the possibility of their radical changes, allow you to use a synthesizer in a wide variety of directions, from jazz to Spase.
I’ve been studying it for only a few days, but noticed that the presence of a large amount of “atmosphere”, interesting FX and “ethnic”, make it very suitable for Ambient, electronics and the like.
Although the “pianos” on 5 octaves and violins with guitars are also very good.)
The keyboard does not cause the slightest disgust or knock.
A little narrower than the usual and a little softer. Real "synthesizer", in a good way.
All Health and Creative Success!
P.S. Thanks Thomann! Very fast and correct! Good luck!
Sorry for my English!)

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 strings, wind and guitar instruments sound quite good.

The UI interface is well designed and implemented. A bit more on-board knobs and dialers would help, but that would raise the price.

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 and it will keep you busy to discover all its features.
