MOXF = The best synth ever created !

Unread post by purcell » Tue Jan 08, 2019 10:55 pm

It took years! ... Never forget to tweak all and everything on the MOXF!
Especially important are the 4 knobs EQ LOW MID F MID and HIGH !!! Turn it to the right ...! UP!

These and other EQ and filter settings make the MOXF a TIGER! ... Nobody tells you that.

MOXF = The best synth ever created ! ... ??? :confusion-confused:

Yes! That's the way it is! :)
Why?

You search and find: PERFORMANCE " SNAKE CHARMER AF!+2 " 8O
ASSIGNABLE FUNCTION AF1 + AF2 ON !
ARP ON !
Choose ARP 4 on the screen. (Later also ARP3 etc.)

Play BASS (Left hand) F - F (octave) or F - C - F

MELODY (right hand) c . eb -f -g (or the F minor scale).

Use the Modulation wheel...
and lift your fingers off the keys (left hand) BASS.

SUSTAIN PEDAL!

You now own a HYPNOTRANCE MACHINE! ((i))
Modify all you want.

Turn the FEG DEPTH / RESONANCE/ CUTOFF knobs.
TEMPO (original 80)

Change VOICES ! (Screen) PRE 3 092 Phat Step .... to 123 DATA RUN and others.

I would never have expected that from the MOXF!

MOXF? ...always a surprise!

Since then, the MOXF is really good for me. Especially after intensive TWEAKING the EQ settings and other settings.
The MOXF is suddenly worth a lot more than 1000 €!

With the original factory settings ... (delivery condition) the MOXF is just a kitten.
But nobody says that! Unfortunately also not Bert Smorenburg!
Turn up the EQ (knobs) settings (and other things!).
Impossible to demonstrate the super important things! EQ Settings / VELOCITY settings etc.

It can take a long time to discover the true potential of any keyboard. The MOXF was always a great keyboard, we all knew that and for me it was the best keyboard around at the time...if you didn't want to spend a couple of grand on the XF of course ;)

It's great to hear that you have unlocked the potential of this wonderful keyboard Purcell and also thanks for sharing those settings :)

"It's great to hear that you have unlocked the potential of this wonderful keyboard Purcell and also thanks for sharing those settings."

Yes! Really bad that I needed a long time ... to the real potential of the MOXF (for me!).
It was as usual the TWEAKING of the original settings. (WORKSTAT'ION !)
That was always so! But never as crucial as the MOXF. (For me)

Besides, I did not buy sounds from easysounds this time. "They take off a lot of work for you ... for just a few euros.

I have often found that you can struggle with something for ages and think you are never going to get anywhere and then all of a sudden one day everything just seems to click into place. I don't know why that is. Perhaps just repetition or working through things until you stumble on the right solution, who knows?

Anyway, very happy it is working for you now :)

Workstations were and are complicated.
I'm still surprised that everything I experienced after the KORG O1W FD is the same.
Only worse!

Information about the most effective and important settings would be extremely helpful.
One is unfortunately flooded with data and infos.
It was clear to me that the sounds had to be modified. (Workstation)

The MOXF, however, only "sounds 50 % or less" (factory settings) I did not know. Nobody says that either.
Nowhere do I find a list or video:
"The 10/20 most important, crucial and effective settings for the MOXF,
that really need to be done, such as an UPDATE and VELOCITY SETTING / EQ SETTINGS !!! ... etc.!

That would not have happened, if I had the MOTIF in 2003 for a long time!
A friend had the MOTIF - and was totally overwhelmed. He quickly sold it again.

The MOTIF (2001) is the basis for the entire Yamaha workstation structure - to this day.

I've played it several times (2003): "This thing is way too complicated!" Completely useless ... with the unclear structures and settings! "
That was my mistake!
I should have bought it at that time. = NEVER MORE A PROBLEM with YAMAHA's workstations .
"The YAMAHA WAY of WORKSTATIONS ... perfectly understood! "
YAMAHA workstations understood from the beginning! From MOTIF to MODX and MONTAGE! NO PROBLEMS! :) 0-)

That is also the advantage of the "MOTIF GURUS".
At that time completely understood the MOTIF - means everything understood ... until today. (MODX / MONTAGE)
