Re: Hi!

Welcome to the forum Patrick. Montage and MODX are very impressive bits of kit. There is nothing to touch MODX at this price point and the combo of AWM2 and FM is a very powerful mix. Of course not everyone will be completely happy with all aspects of the MODX and hence why we have a long running th...

Re: Yamaha MOX/MOXF Likes and Dislikes?

It is because they are aimed at very different types of player. The MOXF and whole MOTIF range are aimed at players who have no need of styles. They create their own music and sounds and for many synth players using preset styles is something they would never consider. Yamaha have now combined arran...

Re: Yamaha MOX/MOXF Likes and Dislikes?

The difference is the MOXF uses 'Arps' which are not the same as styles. They are relatively short musical phrases that you can string together or use as the basic idea for a new song. Styles are a complete song from start to finish with intro, verse, chorus and end with variations on all of those. ...

Re: Yamaha MOX/MOXF Likes and Dislikes?

Ramunas, the Yamaha MOXF is not an arranger keyboard. It is a synth and a very good one.

If you want to play styles (.sty) you should buy a PSR', DGX or a used Tyros. Those keyboards would do everything you want.

You have to buy the right keyboard for your style of playing.

If it ain't broke don't fix it!
On the whole I would agree but It wasn't a fix it was a mod and a very good one at that. Massively better than the original display.

Nice job ledan ((i)) ((i)) ((i))

Re: Another GREAT Deal from Cloud Cuckoo Land

...and there were 18 bids on that one! I guess you never know. Stick it up for £224.99 and the option to make an offer. Obviously people out there prepared to pay fairly high amounts of money for one of these ;)

Re: WHAT Keybed is that?

Yes I can move it as can the moderators but I am just trying to figure out where it would be best placed. Really it is the sort of info that needs to be at the top of the forum where people can easily find it.

Re: Native Instruments S61 MkII plus Maschine Mk3

I don't know about Maschine as it is not something I would normally use but the S61 MKII I have tested here for a few weeks and it was excellent. As was the MK1 and in some ways I actually preferred the first version. Might be a personal preference but I am not sure there was a great benefit to addi...

Re: GAS got me again and I bought a Fantom G6

Yeah definitely not one of my better decisions! Not only because of the 'FROST' connection but also because the Fantom G was the last Roland to have Skip Back Sampling. A fantastic idea and I can't understand why they dropped it. I am still in touch with Jem by the way. He has been trying out the RE...

Re: GAS got me again and I bought a Fantom G6

Yeah that White Fantom G was a one off custom job for Jem Godfrey of the prog rock group ' Frost ' It used to have the band logo on it but I removed that. I had originally bought his Yamaha Motif XS6 and whilst at his place I saw he had just taken delivery of the Fantom G. I would have loved one but...

Re: FG350W

VERY nice guitar there Leon. Looks to be in beautiful condition.

Yamaha made some of the best laminate guitars out there. Not so sure any modern laminates could come close at least not that I have come across.

Adjustable saddle too. Not something you come across these days (Y)

Re: GAS got me again and I bought a Fantom G6

Yeah I have had to step back from the computer keyboard on several occasions recently when I very nearly pressed the buy button for VSTi's! It is way too easy and tempting! At least hardware entails a bit more effort as I would normally only ever buy a keyboard that I was able to collect in person.
