Re: Separating outputs

You can pan piano to one side and bass to the other. What happens after that depends on what you attach to your left and right outputs. There's nothing MODX-specific about that. The Yamaha doesn't know or have any control over what amps/speakers you connect each channel to.

Re: MODX versus Roland Fantom?

Part of marketing your original material is what gear is used on a recording. I tag my 60 originals with Korg Kronos. Can you guess at the benefit of this simple step ? Smart! But also maybe something that naturally favor Kronos. Unlike Kronos, Montage/MODX are not complete self-contained workstati...

Re: MODX versus Roland Fantom?

Sure, I would expect pro's to be using Montage. I am thinking the semi pro or independent ( like myself] home studio person. Thats the type of idependant song writer I have been looking for - on either MODX or Montage. I have searched YouTube and SoundCloud before . why ? I would like to see where ...

Re: MODX versus Roland Fantom?

In terms of how many insert effects can be applied to internal sounds for a single patch, it looks like this: * MODX, 12 fx (2 per part for up to 6 parts) * Montage, 16 fx (2 per part for up to 8 parts) * Fantom, 16 fx (1 per part for up to 16 parts) That's incorrect. MODX has 13 pairs of dual inse...

Re: MODX versus Roland Fantom?

patch changing doesn't work smoothly compared to Yamaha's SSS. There is apparently an issue with switching between standard and V-Piano sounds, but otherwise, its seamless switching looks much better than Yamaha's. MODX is seamless switching between sounds of up to 4 Parts, Montage up to 8 Parts, a...

Re: Top 5 Reasons To Buy The Roland Fantom

And the "patch remain" function (seamless transition when calling a new sound) seems not to work in all circumstances, particularly with the V-Piano when you switch scenes (Roland's name for a "performance"). Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think where you said "particularly," you should have said "...

Re: MODX versus Roland Fantom?

Something else to consider: only 1 insert effect (MFX) per part (tone) on the Fantom would be pretty irritating. Having dual insert FX is a must for me. Yes, dual insert fx is a nice Yamaha advantage, though Roland has the advantage of insert fx on more parts simultaneously. In terms of how many in...

Re: New 2019 Fantom

I had already posted about this. The problem is what do we call it? If we call it the Roland Fantom that could just as easily refer to the original Fantom or Fantom X. So do we now stick "2019" in front of it? I do wish Roland would sort their naming conventions out. This used to only be a Korg thi...

Re: MX compability and MIDI

First I would like to buy a P90 or something similiar, but I just found out that the P-series don't have MIDI (?) Some P-series have MIDI jacks, others have USB, some have both. The only current model that includes standard MIDI jacks is the P-515. Lots of older models did, though. #1 MX88 and Korg...

Re: Does MODX have all preset voices of MOXF?

Interesting info there. Yes, distortion and such was considered undesirable by the designers. Harmonic distortion does add a kind of brightness, but right, it's not exactly the same as what the swell pedal did as it also increased volume. As for weight, the forthcoming PC4 will be a bit lighter than...

Re: are MODX Single Part Performances better than MOXF voices?

As long as you pick a MODX Performance that exists as a Voice in the MOXF, I'd say they should sound the same... or certainly very very close. I hesitate to make an absolute judgement because there have been endless arguments about whether a patch on one board sounds exactly the same on another boar...

Re: Does MODX have all preset voices of MOXF?

Motif XF and MOXF *voices* are the same, and they are all in the MODX (as single part performances). Having a multipart performance now existing as a single part performance may not be a problem. I believe that a single part MODX performance will still contain all of the original MOXF voices as ELEM...

Re: Does MODX have all preset voices of MOXF?

All the Voices that were in the MOXF exist in the MODX as single-part Performances. However, a non-GM MIDI file that plays on the MOXF will probably not play properly on the MODX unless you reassign the sounds, because I don't think the same sounds are available via the same MIDI Program Changes. Pr...
