What is wrong with me?

Unread post by AthelR »

I have owned a Yamaha MOX8 for quite some time now. If I just press lots of buttons until something I like comes out I can make the kind of sounds I want. But truth to tell I have got nowhere with understanding how it works. It seems needlessly complicated.

I am hoping to find someone who knows the instrument really well and is able to give me some tuition via zoom.

I am happy to pay your tuition fee.

Anyone?

Do you have all of the Yamaha manuals? Besides the MOX Owner's Manual, there's a Reference Manual, Parameter Manual, Supplementary Manual, Data List, etc. All can be downloaded as PDFs here:

There are MOX support articles here: http://motifator.com/index.php/support/mox_articles/

If you find that sort of information difficult to digest, you might want to get one or more of the video tutorials available from sources such as Motifator/Keyfax.

Hi AthelR, welcome to the forums :)

I don't think there is anything wrong with you. The MO/MOX/MOXF are not the easiest of keyboards to use. The relatively small display combined with Yamaha's often completely unintuitive user interface can often leave a person feeling very confused indeed :confusion-confused:

I remember that Bert Smorenburg did a series of MOX tutorials about 10 years ago and which you can find here, with probably a few other MOX videos included:



Not sure if that helps any?

I used to own the MOX and MOXF but it was so long ago that I have forgotten most of what I knew. We do have some MO/MOX/MOXF owners on the forum who may be able to help with specific things though so, always worth asking questions about "how to" etc (Y)

I've got the manual, but I can't make any sense of it. For instance, I want to switch it on, record exactly what i play in real time, and then listen to it. That seems to be impossible, even with the user manual. But thanks - I'll try the videos.
