The Yamaha MODX8 is a next-generation fully weighted 88-note synthesizer workstation that expands on the massive success of the previous MOX synths. One of the key updates to the new range is the switch to a multiple stage sound system comprising of motion control synthesis, AWM2 and FM-X. Stacked with an astonishing 6GB of waveforms, thousands of live sets and an exceptionally powerful sequencer, the MODX8 is ideal for music creation and peerless performance.

This includes two stunning grand piano sounds, sampled in meticulous detail from a Yamaha CFIIIS 9-foot grand, and a 7-foot S6. With exceptional dynamic response and expressive performance, these are an exceptional addition to the synth. The full selection of sounds covers a huge range, from authentic acoustic sounds, such as strings, and orchestral instruments, to great electric pianos, organs, and synth and percussion sounds for all genres.

In total, a massive 6 gigabytes of waveforms are loaded into the synth (with 1,152 preset sounds and 72 drum kits), providing an exceptionally broad tonal palette.

Dazzling effects

The MODX8’s effects processor is based on Yamaha's Virtual Circuitry Modelling. This employs clever mathematical models to recreate the circuitry of classic hardware effects, from rack-mount studio gear to stomp-box guitar effects. In addition, the MODX8 employs technology from its high-end consoles and even the REV-X reverb from the legendary SPX2000 studio effects processor.

Massive performance capability

Another feature of the MODX8 is the expandable, low-latency user internal flash RAM. Now, the addition of this flashboard will allow an additional 1GB of sounds and samples. This enables you to customize the onboard sounds to their personal needs and store for later use at the touch of a button. The synth’s performance mode provides the tools to layer sounds together, to create thicker, or more complex sounds. This is enhanced by the Interactive Arp engine, which creates patterns from simple, held chords.

Like previous MOX models, the MODX8 also has an onboard sequencer. With 16-tracks complete with external audio recording capability so that sophisticated tracks can be put together using only the synthesizer.

Professional recording capability

One of the most unique features of the MOX synths is the built-in audio interface. This means that, when used with a software DAW package, it could be used as a complete recording interface via USB. Thankfully, the feature remains, allowing four simultaneous input tracks (a stereo input for internal sounds, and two external inputs), making it easy to record from the synth itself, and from other instruments such as guitars, or other equipment.

A USB to host connection allows for MIDI data to be inputted to your software. A remote mode assigns the synths controllers, allowing for Cubase specific control. Additionally, a bundle of software is included, comprising Cubase AI, Yamaha's Soundmondo sound sharing site and a download for the world-leading Bosendorfer imperial grand piano sound.

There is no limit as to what can be accomplished with the Yamaha MODX series workstations and if you want incredible power and crave the fully weighted playing experience, the Yamaha MODX8 Music Production Synthesizer is the flagship for you.
