Re: OS Update Release

I probably should have put this in the wishlist, but I was really surprised when I first got my MODX to discover it didn't trasmit release velocity. I can understand a cheaper keybed not having aftertouch these days, but release velocity? It's just a firmware function as far as I'm aware. I play a l...

Re: The super knob

I too was critical of the "Superknob", when it was first released. Not it's functionality or purpose...but the name they gave it, and the throbbing light. It just seemed so untechnical and 19th century scifi, for such a well engineered control. The first thing I did when powering up my MODX was to d...

Re: MODX keybed

I have a rather curious update with my MODX8 keybed... Since reporting on this thread that I had a couple of clackity keys way back, I've not been using it all that much lately, as I've been off busy with other pursuits. But I was playing around with it a few days ago, and noticed that the noisy key...

Same issues with the Casio PX-5S keybed!
Interesting....I had a PX5S for a number of years and not had the problem. I still have a PX560, which has the same keybed, and it's fine too.
I must have been lucky , I guess

Re: Yamaha MODX Noisy Keys?

I have 3 keys exhibiting the noise. At this stage they are all black keys, and it started with one key, so I expect further keys to become a problem. I've had my MODX8 for about 6 weeks. The first key noise started around 4 weeks. I have contacted my local Yamaha service tech, here in Australia, who...

Re: MODX keybed

Hi Jahfume, welcome to the forum. Your post is rather timely for me, as I've had my MODX8 for about a month now, and enjoying the GHS keybed. However just yesterday I've started to have this problem. My keybed noise was quite uniform from new across the range, with a dull thud upon release. I've sta...

Re: Anyone compare MODX7 action to Roland FA 07?

Welcome to the forums Chris . . . That's one of the best "first posts" I've seen in a long time, and I agree with what your say . . . I've played many different real Pianos over the years, as well as Many Digital Pianos and Synths with all manner of keybeds. It's inevitable that some will stick in ...

Re: Anyone compare MODX7 action to Roland FA 07?

Thanks, Chris, and welcome. Any thoughts on the MODX8 action from a pianist’s perspective and why you preferred it to the MODX6/7? I guess my "home" instrument is piano, and even though I could learn to play expressively on the 6/7, I would choose weighted every time for this. The other obvious thi...

Re: Anyone compare MODX7 action to Roland FA 07?

Hi everyone....firstly I'm another newbie, just recently purchased a MODX8. No decisions between the keybeds for me as I've always been a piano player first. I have many synths, and had stopped short of buying a Montage simply because there was a quite a bit of hardware on it I wouldn't have used fo...
