For the piano player needing a piano-focused instrument with a huge variety of sound, MODX is a synthesizer with an 88-note, weighted keyboard action. YAMAHA MODX8 Keyboard has over 125 years of Yamaha piano-making craftsmanship coupled with over 40 years of creating industry-leading synthesizers.

Yamaha introduced the mighty MONTAGE synthesizer in 2016, and, like us, most of the music community has been very impressed by it. Combining two independent sound engines, AWM2 (waveform and subtractive synthesis, from the highly regarded MOTIF series) and FM-X (a modern take on Frequency Modulation synthesis, from the classic DX-7 synth), Yamaha put a lot of power under the hood.

To control it all, Yamaha introduced a cool new performance feature called Motion Control, which provides an interesting way to control modulations and alterations of sounds in real time via the “Super Knob” or a connected expression pedal. All of this is explained in detail in our full review of the MONTAGE, found here: https://musicplayers.com/2016/08/yamaha-montage-6-synthesizer-ver-1-5/.

Despite all the power and sonic goodness of the MONTAGE, there is a price to pay- literally. The MONTAGE 8, for example, has a street price of $4,000, placing it out of reach for the average keyboard player. Enter the MODX series, (pronounced moe-dee-ex, think “More DX”).


The YAMAHA MODX8 Keyboard has the same sound engines as the MONTAGE, and many of the same features, barely scaled down in places, and often times not scaled back at all! While the feature set is discussed in detail in our previous MONTAGE review, a quick list of MODX features includes:

  • FM-X engine: Eight operators, 88 algorithms, 64 voice polyphony (MONTAGE offers 128 voices)
  • AWM2 engine: 128 voice polyphony
  • Sixteen-part multi timbral
  • User wave memory: 1 GB (MONTAGE has 1.75 GB)
  • Seamless Sound Transition technology: limited to four voices (MONTAGE has eight)
  • Four MIDI sliders, four rotary encoders (MONTAGE has eight of both, with LED markers)
  • Presets: 5.67 GB of wave data
  • 18 Filter types
  • Mod wheel and pitch bend above the keyboard (MONTAGE has them to the left of the keyboard)
  • Ability to send ten channels and return four audio channels over USB
  • A/D input that can process external audio
  • 27 simultaneous effects
  • Performance recorder allows up to 16 tracks, 130,00 notes (but this is not a workstation)
  • Eight simultaneous arpeggios with 10,239 preset types
