"It's fantastic and it's made of plastic......"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
In this case it's a cost saving material vs the Montagues metal case... If it gives me the power I've just spent 6 hours enjoying, I'm all for it.. I bought the MODX7 and couldn't be more impressed with it... Sounds, playability, ease of use.. It's truly fantastic... It plays very nicely with my FA-06, System 8 and D-05 and my Krome and older XP-50 and Ultranova.. I think I have all my bases covered and then some.. The MODX7 just does things that the other synths just can't, not that they are inferior but MODX just has a sound palate the others don't.. Try it for yourselves, you won't be disappointed... I'm a very happy with my purchase..
