MODX 8 - Awesome!
AdrianF.Cioara, 18.03.2019
This keyboard is awesome! The design looks gorgeous, but what's more amazing is the sound. I really appreciate the details from the sounds inside, especially the CFX Piano. But also the arpeggiators and performances really gives you the 80s synths feeling.

The rhythm function included is very useful. You can now add percussion to your performance and control it in real time. Also, the USB audio interface that is built in works excellent - you can monitor out directly from the keyboard so you can enjoy recording without worrying about latencies. the Cubase AI 10 license included gives you access to a very cool and fast, though complex, recording system.

The keys feel nice, though you can notice that the MODX is a cheaper version of the flagship. After a few days of normal use, some keys started to click - making a plastic sound. It does not affect the sound of the keyboard, but it's annoying provided the fact that you bought the item as new.

I highly recommend this product for semi-pro users that want portability and are on a lower budget. It's perfect for gigs or studio recording.

A premium instrument with a mid-level price tag.
Jotzeph, 09.07.2019
I'm blown away by how good this synthesizer is. Right off the bat, it has some of the best acoustic and electric piano sounds on the market. The rest of the patches are also great of course. However the sampling and synthesis methods on it make it possible to get the craziest or most authentic sounds imaginable. On-board effects are stellar. Build feels sturdy and high quality, in spite of being plastic.

My only problem is that upon arrival, a group of key notes were not working, but I got it immediately fixed at the local Yamaha dealer.
