"MODX raises the bar"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I'm a professional keyboardist and longtime Yamaha user. I've owned the S-90 and currently have a MOXF8 and MX-61. I bought the MODX6 to replace the MX-61 and I'm blown away by the huge leap in sound quality. Perhaps best of all is that Yamaha finally--FINALLY--made a user friendly board. The video interface is very intuitive and I figured out the basic navigation in just minutes. The sound quality is not just a little better than my MX-61, but a huge improvement. Everyone in my band commented on the difference. The build quality is much better than the MX-61. The buttons on the MOX and MX line tend to fail, but I notice that Yamaha has upgraded the control buttons on the MODX series. Also, while it is light at 14 pounds it has a heftier, more solid "feel" than the MX-61. I'm a performance player and don't use my boards a lot to create new sounds, sequences, etc., so the bells and whistles don't have much appeal to me. (Probably why I don't own a Nord, although they are great instruments) That said, this board is capable of a lot. For a sub-$2000 synth this thing is loaded and sounds great. Yamaha hits a home run. Now I'm anxious to replace my MOXF8 with the MODX8.
