Summary: After buying lots of other boards (Korg, Roland ) I finally found what I was missing. For the price I paid it is an unbelievable deal. I've had so many compliments on the sound. Once you figure out the intent of the user interface, it becomes simple. Not as deep a dive as the Korg M50 I have, which can do much more. However the usability of the MOX in either live or recording cannot be beat.
Summary: Way more than I expected, but I am full-on back to writing music after 20 years and if it weren't for the affordability of the MOX6, I'd still be searching for just another hobby instead of getting back to the love of my life - MUSIC. I've had the MOX for almost a year and while the sequencer part of the MOX is not intuitive and there are no step-by-step instructions, I managed to get some use out of it... Where the MOX excels is the sounds.
Summary: I LOOKED AT SO MANY SYNTHS IN THIS PRICE RANGE,I LOVE THE STYLE OF MOX6,AND I THINK YAMAHA HAVE BEST SOUNDS YOU CAN GET,I THINK BEING ABLE TO CREATE MY OWN SONGS AND SOUNDS IS BRIL,THE KEYS HAVE AGREAT FEEL TO THEM,I LOVE MY MOX6,AND WILL KEEP IT FOEVER..
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Great Style And Finish, Low Power Consumption, Quality Construction
Summary: i use to relax every evening for my own entertainment,love its sounds style and quality of build.only problem,still tring to understand its features,very involved need a degree in computor programing to understand it.didnt like its packaging very cheap cardboard box,and needed new mains adaptor as it was faulty.still love this synth best style from yamaha ever..
Summary: Top-notch sounds, effects processor and audio quality. Well programmed, multi-timbral patches or "performances" including arpeggiator patterns. Most are quite useful if not fun to play with, great for quick inspiration. Although not a sampler it has audio inputs which route digital sound through USB - including the sound engine - to a computer for recording/editing. MIDI also routes through USB.
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
Summary: I wanted a keyboard with great sounds to use both live and to record on. The MOX fits the bill. It is also lightweight and durable. It is laid out logically. I am a professional church musician and the MOX is a great asset.
Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Durable, Easy To Use, Great value, Lightweight, Versatile
Summary: A nice price for big sounds and functionality. Great for home studio recording and would hold up on the road with care. The LED screen could be bigger as well as the written lettering (Live wise.) The Cubase Software is a chore to update and the keyboard should have a direct record to it's USB port. Over all an easy machine with prosounds the cover many genre's. A must own for any song writer.
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Use, Great Presets, Great Price, Lightweight, Versatile
Cons: Breaks Easily, Cant Record To The Usb, Cubase Software Is Poor, Small Led Screen
Summary: My primary gig is contemporary church music. The expanded articulation yields sonic results similar to a good sound library. The AF1/AF2 buttons are really handy and enable XA. I chose the MOX6 over the new MX because I wanted to edit at the element level. I rarily use stock patches and the MOX6 did not disappoint. I programmed B3 patches to match "my sound" and don't need to drag a clone to the gig. The oboe+bassoon split is really sweet!
Pros: High Quality Samples, Lightweight
Cons: Documentation Is Just Ok, Steep Learning Curve
