Decent sound, lots of features for a good price
Leftystrings, 02.11.2018
The MODX is a trimmed down version of the must more expensive MONTAGE. It offers approx 80 to 85% of the features of it bigger brother.

The sound is quite decent, however not so full as workstations like the KORG KRONOS. The string, wind and guitar instruments sound quite good: the CSX piano is not impressive at all.

The UI interface is well designed and implemented. The touch screen can however sometimes be a little unresponsive.

It is very easy to build complex soundscapes by layering different sounds with motion controls to make them more interesting.

The key bed feels a bit cheap, but playable.

All in all a good deal as a secondary keyboard next to your main keyboard.

Class Synthi with many possibilities, but sometimes limited in size
Jurek, 25.09.2018
The synthi delivers a crystal clear quality, and that also over digitally, both for live as well as a bit studio designed.

positive

- Complete DX7 synthesis and significant extensions (64 votes)
- Complete AWM2 a-la Motif XS (128 votes)
- Easy updates / sample / sound recording
- Large color touch screen, great price!
- Good, light workmanship, seems less cheap than on the photos / videos
- Keyboard is quiet and has a short way, I personally like very much

negative

- Artificially scrambled digital audio: While mounting (identical interior) up to 192kHz in digital out / in offers, MODX has been reduced to 44.1kHz! The people at Yamaha should have noticed that today's digital standard starts at 48kHz ... So is the combination with other digital devices that like to use 48kHz then (Korg, Roland ...) partially not possible, only with complicated wrapper software constructions. Dear Yamaha, you are allowed to unlock 48kHz for the MODX, and yet it is sufficient to distinguish it from the premium 192kHz. Not so stingy please.

- ADSHR without curve parameters. This has virtually every modern VSTi! Log-Lin-Exp Curve parameters for Attack / Decay / Release please!

- No unison, one could offer with macro functions, with so many voices

- Pedal goals do not let not put globally

- Midi channels can not be set individually by part! Sometimes you want to bass on 1, the remaining layers on 2. Doof.

- As a DAW controller still extremely rudimentary, while so much potential

All in all, finally, a contemporary digital synth, but with some annoying restrictions that will hopefully be improved :)
