Apparently the French have better and faster information. I've often noticed that. Why is that?
Apparently according to whom?

That page should not be online at the moment. The publisher has either pressed "publish" instead of "schedule" or had broken the NDA...which going by recent events seems to be a common occurrence these days :(

Someone else found this vendor who has the MODX8 listed. Webpage is in French.

https://www.espaceclaviers.com/yamaha-m ... sc,pg1.htm
If that page is accurate...

The MODX8 is a half-inch longer; and weighs 2 pounds less than the MOXF8...

It also has Available Banks: Bösendorfer Imperial 290 Piano, Chick Corea Rhodes mkV, Expanded MOUNTING

And it shows that the new Montage CFX samples are pre-loaded.

All-in-all... :D

Could it be that there is currently no valid, absolutely reliable information about the MODX available? Be careful with that?

It has for ex. Chick Corea Rhodes mkV onboard???

Personally, I can not believe that. Fake?

It supposedly has the same available sound banks the Montage has...

Bösendorfer 290 Imperial Grand Piano
CHICK COREA MARK V

I have a feeling that the Bösendorfer Imperial 290 Piano and Chick Corea Rhodes mkV are downloadable add-ons from Yamaha. I would certainly expect the CFX to be there though ;)

The photos that have been posted show the CFX in the upper left corner of the 4x4 grid on the LCD screen:

And notice "All 9 Bars!" Some people were expressing doubts that the four sliders would allow for live use of drawbar organ voices.

Not the best live stream I ever saw! Didn't really go into the keyboard in detail and ok it was well played but...sorry, bring back Bert is all I can say. Great keyboard though :)

uhhhh yeahhh. A lot of hype for a fairly vanilla presentation and someone playing some really average music for an extended period. (Domi is great, but it seems like she was phoning it in.)

Still, I'm probably buying the MODX7.

They aren't re-starting the same stream for each artist. They make a new one. Might need to refresh the page.

Well, Facebook oh-so-helpfully logged me out of my account in the middle of the event because they noticed "suspicious activity" on my account and want to force me to enter my cell phone number so they can text me a code to enter in to continue. Yeah, right! They just want my phone number, end of story. And they ain't getting it, so I guess there's no more live-streaming event for me.

Well I gave up after the first stream. Why they thought it was a good idea to break it up is a completely mystery.

The live stream was... boring...

The YouTube demos are MUCH better...
