88-Note Semi-Weighted Fluid Keybed
With the same feel as an acoustic piano, the semi-weighted keybed provides fluid playability for all players. The specialised keybed not only feels good to play but it also adds expression to your playing.
In total, the MODX8 provides up to 192-notes of polyphony, comprised of 128-note polyphony for the AWM2 engine and 64-notes for FM-X section. The SSS technology (Seamless Sound Switching) allows for performances which include up to four parts. This can be highly useful for live performances and studio sessions.
Advanced Memory Wave 2 Synthesis Engine
The 2nd generation synthesis engine provides faithful recreations of classical instruments, synths sound and percussion. The cutting-edge engine emulates organic sounds with exceptional attention to detail, taking your sound design abilities to the next level. The AWM2 engine is specially made for Yamaha synthesizers, giving you the ability to process both samples and sounds.
FM-X Frequency Modulation
The unique frequency modulation technology within the MODX8 gives you in-depth control over your sounds. It features an 8-operator FM architecture with 64-note polyphony. The FM-X section features deep programming abilities, allowing you to create everything from classic pad sounds to in-your-face EDM basslines. The comprehensive range of filter types provides you with immense control over your sounds, allowing you to create any tone you desire.
Built-In Studio Effects
The MODX8 also features a wide variety of high-grade studio effects. The effects range from modern-day reverbs to emulated analog effects. At the core of the effects section is the powerful DSP engine. This helps to provide the highly detailed effects and exceptional audio quality. Everything is included from virtual circuit modelling effects to modern-day effects such as Bit Crushing and Beat Repeat.
One of the most unique effects included is the Spiralizer. This one-of-a-kind effect provides the illusion of a tone rising or falling in pitch. To top it off, the synth also provides sidechaining abilities for added flexibility.
Faders, Encoders & Other Performances Controls
Unleash your creativity during live performances using the integrated faders, encoders and more. Four faders and encoders can be used to control a variety of settings and functions. Use them to control automation, pitch, tone and many other parameters.
The Super Knob acts as a virtual music conductor. It works by channeling individual dynamic elements into one control. You can use the control to shape the notes from long to short or bright to dark for a uniformed change in sounds. It provides simultaneous control of up to 128 parameters in a single performance.
Performances are used like user-created presets, allowing you to save and recall sounds and settings for live performances. There are 2,00 preset performances in total, with 640 user programmable performances and 5,120 library performances.
Integrated 2-in/10-out USB Audio Interface
Computer-based music production is the standard within the industry today. The MODX design incorporates a multi-channel USB audio interface to communicate and process sounds to your computer.
The interface is coupled with two A/D inputs, making the MODX8 the perfect keystone to any studio or live setup. An integrated USB volume knob allows you to control the volume of the USB audio stream for added flexibility.
Versatile Envelope Follower
Envelope Followers are used to convert audio files into a control source for various synth parameters. The versatile envelope follower within the MODX8 provides in-depth control. For example using a vocal recording to control multiple parameters can turn the MODX into a talking synthesizer.
Integrated 1GB Flash Memory
The MODX features 1GB of non-volatile low-latency flash memory. The flash memory allows you to store and recall sounds, settings, performances and more. It boasts high-speed reading/writing for optimised performance. You can also use your own custom Sample or Synths libraries from the Yamaha website.
