Hi, new member. no skill, talent or any relevant musical experience.

My current synth, new to me as of today (2020-03-24) is a used/demo Yamaha MODX6.

Bought it sight unseen from Reverb.

Did a quick setup to be sure it powered on, but won't have time be sure everything works until the weekend.

Let's see how this goes :-D

Hi Sami, welcome to the forums :)

That is a very nice way to start your musical journey. The MODX6 is a powerhouse of a keyboard with endless possibilities.

I very much look forward to hearing how you get on with it (Y)

Hi Sami . . . .

The MOXF6 is a very deep and capable Synth, and like all recent boards, that capability comes with complexity.

DO take time to quietly go through the Manual(s) - especially the Quick-Start Guide if there is one - and discover how

the synth is laid out, what the button do, and how the menus work . . . .

To be honest - the Manuals themselves can take a bit of understanding initially as to how things are laid out . . . .

It's not always intuitive, and Yamaha especially, sometimes have strange ways of doing things . . .

Once you understand HOW they have done things, and go with it - it will all get easier.

Take a break once in a while and play the demos . . . take a look at the display and see what's happening in them.

Select some of the presets and just play it . . . . Gradually you'll get familiar with where things are and start to make it

do what YOU want to do . . . .

So - Slow and easy to start with . . . . (Y)
