      Comments about Yamaha MX49 49 Key Music Production Synthesizer:

      I was originally looking for a clonewheel with good organ sounds to augment my Roland boutique synth, but someone suggested I give the MX a go. I am extremely pleased with the bread-n-butter tones including their organ, strings, and EPs. In addition, they MX has really versatile pads and synth tones. The organ tones were surprisingly good and the leslie rotor effect has good speed up and slow down ramp times. It's perfectly believable for live gigs and this is in comparison to my Hammond M3 with a Ventilator. The MX has replaced my boutique synth and has become my one and only live board.

      from Seattle, WA

      Comments about Yamaha MX49 49 Key Music Production Synthesizer:

      My main synth is a Motif XS but it's heavy and the case doesn't fit in the trunk of my car. This little MX is light, small and sounds 80% (maybe even 90%) as good as it's big brother. It doesn't have a sequencer but it can play standard midi files that I create on the Motif. I'll never use it for recording because I have the XS but if I didn't this would be good for that too. The short keyboard is a bit of a drawback but I didn't think one extra octave was worth $200. The keyboard feels cheap (well, it is) and no aftertouch but it's playable and the sounds coming out of it are excellent. Only one insert effect is a bit of a drawback too. I gave it 4 stars because it's far from perfect but for the money I could make an argument that it's a 5 star synth.
