Overview

The Yamaha MODX8 is the flagship model of the MODX Series. Designed with piano players in mind, the MODX8 features piano-focused sounds that are a perfect match for its graded-hammer action keybed. The MODX8 is the largest keyboard of the family, but still upholds the portable characteristics that makes it a MODX synthesizer. MODX8 has 88 weighted-action keys that professionals will find a delight to play. Like the rest of the MODX Series, MODX8 gets its power from the same technology found in the flagship MONTAGE keyboard, combining Yamaha’s AMW2 (Advanced Wave Memory 2) technology, and the advanced synthesis capability of FM-X (Frequency Modulation). Together, these two iconic sound engines provide a modern platform for amazing sound playback and complex sound design capability. If you're looking for a cutting-edge technology in a full 7-octave synth, the Yamaha MODX8 is the model you want.

Samples and synths combined

The MODX sound is derived from the same technology powering the flagship MONTAGE: Yamaha’s AWM2 (Advanced Wave Memory 2) sample-based engine and the FM-X (Frequency Modulation) synth architecture. This unique mixture results in stunning emulative acoustic instruments, synthesized sounds, drums and more. AWM2 technology allows for a large amount of data compression without sacrificing sound quality, resulting in unparalleled, realistic sound reproduction. On the other hand, the FM-X engine is a highly sophisticated form of synthesis capable of producing amazing sounds with high dynamic range, unprecedented power and fidelity. Together, AWM2 and FM-X give you the ability to create an impressive array of sounds that have never been heard before.

Add movement to your sound

The real performance power of the MODX series comes from its Motion Control technology, putting rhythmic and dynamic control at your fingertips for a unique, personalized sound. The Super Knob allows simultaneous control of up to 128 parameters in a single Performance. This means you can control nearly anything from mix functions like volume, pan and effect sends to detailed synth parameters like filters, LFOs and Operators. Motion Sequences are tempo-synchronized, completely customizable control sequences that can be assigned to virtually any synthesizer parameter and provide incredible new ways of creating sound.

All three MODX series keyboards in size order.

Ready for the road 

Taking a nod from the MONTAGE series, the MODX keyboards have an extraordinary amount of power and features, but the difference is in its form. MODX has a modern design that’s considerably lighter, making transport easier and load-in a breeze. If you’re looking for a lightweight keyboard that can travel easy, but you’re not willing to sacrifice sound and performance features, then MODX is the right keyboard for you. Let MODX empower your creativity and inspire your music. Experience all three keyboards from the MODX series available at Guitar Center.
