Hollow key

Unread post by Blokksberg » Sat Jan 12, 2019 3:45 pm

Hi! I am having so much fun with my MODX, but yesterday a problem occured. I was playing when i suddenly heard that a key sounded more "hollow" than the others. It is the g# 1 key.

I tried to attach a video, but it wouldn't let me.

Do you have any suggestions to what this might be?

Do you mean the key itself sounded odd or the actual triggered sound? Was this on the MODX8 by any chance?

Ahh ok that sounds like the beginning of the "noisy keys" issue that some others have experienced. If it is still doing it I would advise you get the MODX replaced because it will very likely get worse over time with more keys being affected.

Maybe add your vote in this section where we discuss the keys on the MODX8
