I wish it had sliders instead of knobs.
The Motif XF which of course the MOXF is derived from had both sliders and knobs but some things had to go in order to get the price down and I am guessing sliders cost more than knobs.

Re: Can I Plug Yamaha hs5's into my keyboard?

I’m definitely looking to record at some point so the studio monitors would come in handy. But I’m not sure how long it’ll take to get to that point. Should I get something else in the meantime? And if so what? Also would the hs7s or hs8s be big enough for the board do you think? The HS7's and HS8'...

Re: Yamaha SC300T

That's a lovely looking guitar. Congrats ((i)) I was looking around some second hand shops yesterday and not a guitar in sight. The only guitars I have seen in the past have been the usual firewood candidates from Encore and various no name brands you would not want to go anywhere near. Population a...

Fascinating. I was just thinking the other day, if the folks here could design their ideal synthesizer, drawing from all those of the past, what would it be like?
I know it would be damned expensive! :lol:

Re: Yamaha Idea Scale CS80 Questionnaire

That's interesting! I can't see Yamaha recreating a hardware version of the CS80 as the cost would be prohibitive, at least if they went with a full size keyboard version. Perhaps they are thinking more along the lines of what Roland did with the D-05. Or perhaps as you mentioned it may be a modelle...

Re: Guitar Serial Number Checker

Welcome to the forums CK :)

Yamaha serials are always a problem, even for the guys at Yamaha! So could be your guitar is May, 1990 perhaps? I'm sure some of the others will chip in here and I can always fire off a question to Yamaha about it :)

Re: Yamaha P-515

Hi everyone, I'm looking at getting the P-515 for my son as a birthday gift. He has two years of experience and is getting pretty good. Is this a good purchase? That's an incredibly nice birthday gift for your son! And it sounds from what you have said that he has definitely taken to the piano so i...

Re: Jordan Rudess’ Custom KRONOS

It's the same with some guitarists. Incredible technique but it's all about who can play the most notes in the shortest space of time and reach as much of the fret board as possible whilst doing it. Can't say that has ever moved me but as you say we are all different and what floats one persons boat...

Re: UX16 MIDI TROUBLE BLUES

Sounds like a complete nightmare! My wife has just experienced a complete crash on her PC and although technically she could spend hours fixing it (she's a bit of a tech guru) it really would take far too long. So she will just start again with a new SSD hard drive and move on. Sometimes it's the be...

Jordan Rudess’ Custom KRONOS

A special-edition KRONOS for none other than keyboardist Jordan Rudess! Customized for his upcoming Dream Theater tour, Jordan will perform on his very own model, tailor-made in an electric blue finish. Really nice looking Kronos but I was more impressed by the rotating stand he has it mounted on (Y...

2 x 8GB DDR3 1333 Desktop Memory Wanted

Thought I would ask on here before trawling through the usual places. Normally I have plenty of memory modules kicking around and I do indeed have quite a bit but all at the wrong capacity. I need 2 x 8GB DDR3 1333 memory modules for a desktop computer. Or possibly 4 x 4GB. If anyone has anything li...

Re: Chris Miller and the Yamaha CP88

I agree Chris. There is far too much in the CP to be able to get to grips with in the time we had at Yamaha and the use of the FC7 takes a while to become accustomed to. I think you did a fantastic job though :)

Re: Chris Miller and the Yamaha CP88

I enjoyed listening to that! And that is a fine looking keyboard. I pretty much like the looks of all the Yamahas keyboards I've seen, except when they went with that big knob thing. Yes well the "Super Knob" on the MODX and Montage was always going to be a divisive idea. At least they let you turn...

Chris Miller and the Yamaha CP88

Chris Miller with Luke Juby.png As some of you will know, a while back me, Chris and Sasha visited Yamaha's UK HQ in Milton Keynes. It was a great day and we saw and learned a lot about what Yamaha do...loads more than people are often aware of! as well as getting to try out some of the instruments...
