This is definitely the best live keyboard I've ever owned!
What is your opinion of this product?
It weighs only 10 lb, it has all the sounds of the latest Motif, and it's very easy to navigate. Not only do I love it, my fellow musicians always comment on how great it sounds.

Great keyboard!
What is your opinion of this product?
I love this Yamaha keyboard! The Yamaha MX61 is loaded with many great sounds from their Motif series. There are many great piano, organ, string, brass and synth samples to chose from. The layout is simple and the keyboard is very easy to use. It’s a great live performance synth, and has all of the features that I needed for a stage keyboard. The layer option is a great feature. It’s very light weight. The only thing that was a bit disappointing is the “wall wart” power supply that was included with the keyboard.

Great lightweight keyboard for live gigs.
What is your opinion of this product?
I'm sure I haven't scratch the surface of what this keyboard can do, but the MX61 offers great Yamaha sounds in an easy to use package. For live performance I love being able to layer the sounds and control the volume of each. Not to mention it's lightweight. Nice Organ Digital Leslie, Piano and strings sounds. The Cubase bundle was a great added bonus!

Too lightweight and narrow but perfect sounds
What is your opinion of this product?
The Yamaha MX61 (no 1) is a great keyboard with many of the Motif sounds. It is easy to navigate the voices. They are beautiful! The only problem is the case on many 61 key keyboards. They are narrow to play on some X stands and not sturdy. That is the only problem though. Yamaha manufacturers are brilliant and have the best piano and keyboard sounds. I appreciate Yamaha trying to save people’s backs by making the keyboards less heavy. The only change I hope Yamaha would make is the width of the 61 key keyboards which would add a little more weight. I sold my Yamaha MX61. Thank you Yamaha! I love American Musical!

Well worth the money
What is your opinion of this product?
This is a nice little keyboard. The sounds are not the greatest, but it covers all your basic piano, strings, synth and the like very nicely. It makes for a very nice second keyboard and/or a controller. It has Yamaha's performance mode where you can easily set up your layers and splits for your song set. The blue color looks great on stage, on the second tier of my silver color Spyder Pro stand. For the price and especially the 0 interest payments plan, you can't go wrong.
