General What is your overall opinion of this product? This Keyboard is great!!! The sounds are superb, My has been a MOTIF ES and a Triton Studio I mostly use the Motif ES, NOt too long ago I bought the Korg Krome and I wasn't very impressed I thought it a wattered down version of the Triton and not a baby brother to the Kronos that has 9 engines but Really? I was not that impressed with the Piano so I sent back the Korg and purchased the MOFX6 after reading a review in keyboard magazine and watching a couple videos about the MOFX OMG!!! This keyboard is great, not a watered down version of the MOTIF but an exact copy of their flagship minus sampling plus it doubles as a MIDI interface and an Audio Interface , by far the easiest MO to navigate and 4 arpeggiators this keyboard is awesome just judging by the sounds alone the sounds are superb - the pianos in my opinion are way better then the Korg Krome. as in the Motif you can layer and/or split 4 different sounds and although it lacks the faders they made it easier to mute the parts Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? It's not a Tank like the Motif and the MOFX6 weighs 15 pounds my MOTIF ES weighs a ton, I don't like the power supply I would have liked a 3 prong normal power chord and a bigger screen but the keyboard action feels great the sounds are great all the controls are easy to navigate and considering all it offers for recording, sounds, yamaha did a great job plus you can expand the sounds with the optional 1 gig Ease of Use How user friendly is it? Would it work well for a beginner, intermediate or experienced player? THis would be a great keyboard at any level and awesome for a beginner specially if their just starting to build their Studio because this can be their audio/midi interface and they can use the effects from the keyboard. Features Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features? Yes this is what I was expecting, I wish they had editors and more integration with an ipad although I do most of my recordings on a imac I would like the ability to integrate with an ipad app like auria or even cubase for ios. Some people may not like the fact that you cannot sample but really you can sample on an ipad or another sampler. I would have liked a bigger screen and a different power supply but if I start adding features I want it will add to the weight and I love that it is so lite!!! Sound How is the sound quality? How does the sound compare to other products you've use? The sounds are amazing they are up to par with anything out there. this is truly the best keyboard at this price range and maybe even rivals the big brothers because sometimes you end up spending money on features you don't use. Feel How is the feel of the keys? Are the controls laid out well? The keys feel great!!!! I prefer the feel of a synth , because I started playing on a Juno 60 and a Prophet 5 that was my gear cause I was one of 2 keyboard players on a rock/pop band I also had a rhodes that I hated carrying. I rather have a light keyboard feel the action is great and I hear the MOFX8 has a great real piano feel. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? This is by far the best Keyboard on it's class and as i said before if you can live with a smaller screen, no sampling and no faders this keyboard rivals any flagship of any company, you wanna go out on a gig take a MOFX it's lite and it's got any sound you need and more.
One man Band!

General What is your overall opinion of this product? To be so lightweight, this keyboard packs quite a punch. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? It works for just about any type of music out there. Ease of Use How user friendly is it? Would it work well for a beginner, intermediate or experienced player? It would work for someone that barely knows anything about keyboards - it's pretty straightforward. If you ever get lost as far as sounds, it has a category search button you press, and the various instrument sounds come into view. Features Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features? My favorite feature about this is well, the favorites button, you can save your favorite sounds in this menu, and when you need them, just press the button and they show up. And as stated above, the category search. In the studio and live, it just makes getting to sounds easy. It really helps my workflow. Sound How is the sound quality? How does the sound compare to other products you've use? Ahh.. my favorite part! To hear this thing in action, check out my youtube channel - www.youtube.com/user/daxmaestro. Yamaha has really outdone themselves with the pianos on here (I'm a pianist), plus with the expanded ability to add a flash card, you can always get new sounds to add to the keyboard. The sounds on here are really authentic. I do the one man band in and out of the studio, and when I finish my tracks, people always ask me "who is your band", or "who is your bass player", etc.. Yamaha is, lol. I'm a guitarist at heart, so that's like my top sounds on the Yamaha motif line. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? It's way more than I was expecting! IMO, there's nothing in this price range that competes. The other companies do good in certain areas, this does good all around.
Not as great as I hoped

General What is your overall opinion of this product? One heck of a bang for the buck. I owned Motif S6, MO6, MM6, XF6 and just lately the MOX6. I do not own the MOXF, because it's not out yet, but everything else from my current arsenal (Korg M3, Korg PA 600, Roland Fantom X) is going back to local store to get this baby. It has everything I need, plus the extra cash?! Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? Not too long ago I had reviewed the MOX. The quality of the casing felt plasticky and cheep. I don't expect much improvement on this here. Ease of Use How user friendly is it? Would it work well for a beginner, intermediate or experienced player? It is definitely user friendly. It is complex, and will give you plenty of reasons to scratch your head and get the manual, but we want depth and complexity, don't we? Sure it's good for beginners, if they are serious about learning. Features Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features? Exactly Sound How is the sound quality? How does the sound compare to other products you've use? Superb! If it's the XF engine (with 8 insert effects now, instead of three), then it's the best. Come on, Korg and Roland won't even come close producing convincing guitar licks and phrases. I'm a guitarist, but when I sequence, I often lay down 2-3 tracks of (Motif Arp) rhythm to solo over with my Ibanez and when mixing down I catch myself keeping them! Keys are sweeeeeet. Synths are warm and fuzzy, and you have 8 freaking elements per voice and LFO and filter galore to tweak while mixing. Feel How is the feel of the keys? Are the controls laid out well? Controls are fine, keys are OK. I've read some websites say it is weighted synth action (like the Motif XF??? Seriously, I am having a hard time to believe it), others say it's unweighted, like the MOX . Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? The Motif XF is already a great deal for about $2400, right? The MOX was a steal for &1100, and for $1299 this MOXF is a sin not to own it. Retailers will have a hard time the keep them in stock for months to come
