Re: MODX8 for £989 in Black Friday deal

I thought The Grandeur was a recording of an older Steinway...? I don't know what the age of the piano is, but it sure sounds awesome. Age doesn't always mean worse with grand pianos. Age doesn't always mean worse... etc etc Thats a discussion point that I see now and then. Staying with context her...

Re: MODX8 for £989 in Black Friday deal

yes, we did converse about Kronos prior to your Montage purchase. I am watching to see if Korg is pushing to help clear out the retail channel of Kronos. That will be a signal of a new expensive model. Reason why is that when a new expensive Korg board is announced, sales of the prior model slow. A...

Re: MODX8 for £989 in Black Friday deal

I appreciate all the points ! I will always be a 2 keyboard musician. Many of the Montage strengths are in the Kronos. Thus MODX is attractive as my 2nd board. Yeah, I studied the Kronos pretty closely when deciding what to buy...I think we conversed a bit on the Kronos Forum..!? The Kronos was qui...

Re: MODX8 for £989 in Black Friday deal

[ - if you needed maximum Polyphony and used FM-X sounds nearly as much as AWM2, therefore the Montage gives you 128 + 128 (via 2 DSP processors) vs the MODX's 128 + 64 (off the same 1 DSP processor) - if you wanted to have a lot of libraries & your own wave file samples loaded and ready to go in U...

Re: MODX8 for £989 in Black Friday deal

I am a Kronos owner. 8 yrs. Seeing if Korg is finally going to make a move in the +$3000 keyboard or w/s niche. Potentially it shakes everything up in that niche. and Fantom is still very interesting but not complete. If Roland does a major OS upgrade that might be enough to sway me from MODX. I th...

Re: MODX8 for £989 in Black Friday deal

Well Winter NAMM 2019 didn't deliver anything of particular note. Was pretty much a non-event for big releases especially from Yamaha. Lately it has been the case that all the new releases are done months before NAMM and the show is simply used as a place where retailers and youtubers can get a "ha...

Re: MODX8 for £989 in Black Friday deal

What are you expecting to find at NAMM...? I plan my purchases, long term type. NAMM in Anaheim is a line in the sand for most new keyboard products. I am a Kronos owner. 8 yrs. Seeing if Korg is finally going to make a move in the +$3000 keyboard or w/s niche. Potentially it shakes everything up i...

Re: MODX8 for £989 in Black Friday deal

Yep that is true. It would cost way too much to deliver to the USA at those prices. I would have thought the MODX8 would have been cheaper in the US than here in the UK but that is not the case. Even without any special deals here it is still way cheaper. I just checked the price of the MODX8 on Sw...

Re: MODX/MONTAGE audition

hey brother, I think you are accurate. BTW, the FA, only has 4 factory demo songs. Roland did excellent programming to show off the FA, but nothing further. I just read Roland used samples for their demo songs. Duh. That explains a lot. I 'tag ' all my SoundCloud songs with Kronos, Korg, and the 3rd...

Re: MODX/MONTAGE audition

Lurker here but MODX is my #1 purchase choice. Since there is potentially more excitement in the +$2000 keyboard niche I am holding off thru Jan NAMM 2020 before I drop the credit card. Every keyboard has great or almost great sounds. I am more motivated by excellent programming, typically pro sound...

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 ...
