Montage performance in a lightweight package with some trade-offs
JFP4FFR 02.11.2022
The Modx+ 6 is certainly a great value for money. As second tier (with a good masterkeyboard beneath) ; it's an enrichment for your sound palette. All necessary connections are there as well, although the lack of balanced outputs makes the use of an USB connection between master keyboard and simultaneous audio out from the MODX to that same masterkeyboard unworkable. The keybed feels cheap and is a bit of a disgrace for the rest of the instrument which is, though plastic, quite solid. Touch screen response is a bit sluggish but workable. Personally the lack of aftertouch and cheap keys are a major reason for me to upgrade to the montage after all, despite the added weight and cost. Bonus are the extra controls and balanced outputs. IMHO, if you cannot really use the extra keys of the second tier, it acts more like a disproportionately big sound module. For a more precise and pleasant performance the FSX keybed feels so much better. Shame Yamaha couldn't come up with a slightly better keybed for the modx than the current one. It would make it almost perfect in it's class. But perhaps they intentionally crippled it a bit , to prevent the Modx from cannibalising Montage sales too much. If you are not picky about keys it is almost a no brainer. For the ones that value a good set of keys and can handle the extra weight ; get the montage.

Un bon rapport qualité prix.

Un synthé très correct pour le tarif (attention, ce n'est pas un Montage).
Pour la suite c'est totalement subjectif.
Perso j'aime assez le clavier léger qui permet de jouer des riffs rapide, il faut juste ne pas taper dessus comme une brute...
Les modules sons sont de très bonnes qualités (les sorties audios numériques via USB sont détectées en 24 bits / 44,1 Khz par mon pilote Asio), même si certaines sonorités d'usine mériteraient d'être affinées.
Une fois assimilé la façon de le programmer, c'est enfantin d'en tirer ce qu'on en veut, surtout avec l'écran tactile, quand on a connu le D20 de chez Roland sans PG10 (et il marche toujours très bien).
Du très bon Yamaha dans le milieu de gamme.
