"It's fantastic and it's made of plastic......"

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..

"The Real Deal!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I bought this on the Play As You Pay plan last September. I wanted a new Kronos but didn't quite want to pay that much. With the sounds of the Montage and the seamless sound switching like the Kronos for $1500 (76 key)? I added the Yamaha damper pedal. This board handles my church, my band and my studio needs. I was an original Kronos owner at the expense of my old Motif. Well Yamaha stole me back from Korg and I consider myself a Korg fan this MODX7 is that good.

So much power in a lightweight "affordable" package. I can carry the MODX7 wirh two fingers and a thumb, but it sound like it weighs a ton. The keybed is decent, with a nice, (very) lightly weighted synth action and short key travel.The sounds are amazing, and so many of them. As the Yamaha site says: If you took a minute to preview each sound, you would be sitting at the keyboard for 36 hours.The keyboard also functions as a sound card of excellent quality. My VSTs and even just watching YouTube videos have never sounded better.I gave a slightly lower "ease of use" score not because you can't plug and play and get good results, but because of the depth of options available. Yamaha has also made it difficult to get a handle on things by using different terminology for common components of synthesis. With a little poking around though, you can figure out what them mean...For the price, this is a great midrange keyboard that punches well above its weight.Manufacturer support has been amazing, the keyboard has been getting regular firmware updates, adding new sounds and features.There are downloadable sounds/instruments from Yamaha, and the Soundmondo for MODX patch (er, 'performance' in Yamaha lingo) exchange site as well.

"It needs some work"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Purchased a Yamaha MODX7 and at first thought I was going to be satisfied with it, but the more I played it is the more I was unsatisfied. First thing that got me is how thin the piano sounds were. Whenever you pull up a sound patch and click the audition button is not the same as what you hear when you’re playing that particular sound patch. Majority of the sounds are great, except for the piano sounds. Another problem I had was using it at my first gig. Realized that the keyboard was out of tune with our guitarist and bass player. I’m wondering how could this be when the global settings where tuned in 440. I had to go in manually and tune the keyboard up to a 448 tuning in order to match up with a 440 tuning. However, as the night went on the keyboard started to get out of tune again except this time I had to tune it back down to 440 to make it right. This is a big flaw within the system. So the next day I got the keyboard out and played along with other songs and the keyboard was out of tune once again. I’m not sure how to fix this problem, but I shouldn’t have to tune a digital keyboard. As far as other features, the sampling is unreal and one of the greatest things about this keyboard. I hate the power supply and wish they would have manufactured a heavier duty power supply like the Motif’s had or the ES-90 model. Right now I’m debating on whether to keep this thing or not or return it.
