Pretty expensive musical toy

By Bedrock

from Santa Barbara, Ca

Comments about Yamaha MX61 61 Key Music Production Synthesizer:

Brief review. It is more a report about my experience with MX 61 BK.

Before I've started, I want to say big(huge) thanks to all GC people, for providing such great opportunity to gain new experience.
It is great to have a store with such excellent service!

I know GC normally removes (from my review) any references to gratitude to GC.
Please keep it this time.

Now about MX61BK.
1) Software: Cubase. Nothing special. It freezes upon calling of the license window.
It does not allow to use different drivers for different keyboards connected simultaneously. (bummer)
2) Prologue - The link provided within the package does not exist.
Therefore I had to try to use VST from MX61(downloaded from Yamaha website)
This VST is not supported by CuBase AI 8. The VST required CuBase 4.
3) Y3B - Downloaded successfully from Yamaha website. However couldn't find the option to activate this product. Read manual how to install Y3B. Did not help .;)
4) Split function is limited. The split point cannot be assigned to any key. (Makes it pointless to use split with external 88 keyboard )
5) Arpeggio output for individual parts cannot be use for a playback from DAW back on MX. MX sends all arpeggios out, DAW records everything successfully, playback does not sound as the original arpeggio. (Big problem)
6) Performance can have only up-to 4 parts(voices). Not 16 Why?????.(Used Vycro MX Performance Editor).
7) Articulations are weaker than Roland superNatural.
8) I did not expect to have any decent piano sound from MX. Therefore no complains about piano. The rest of sounds it depends on your taste. I found interesting some synth voices as well as tweaking of their parameters.

I have more concerns but it could be enough to describe major problems(I found) with MX61.

FM essentials - I couldn't think of any possible way to integrate those effects with DAW (besides of using an external sampler).
Do not like it at all.

Spent with it (MX61BK) three weeks. Returned with no regrets.

Great keyboard

By Keys4Jazz

from West Coast USA

Verified Buyer

Comments about Yamaha MX61 61 Key Music Production Synthesizer:

Like all Yamaha keyboards, the MX has great sounds. You can adjust sounds and layer 2 sounds. Effects have limits, you can add chorus, or delay, but not both. I have not found out how to add multiple effects. The PC control helps to develop new sounds, but there are still limitations. For the price, it is a great keyboard.
