New to Keyboards

Mtnwulf, usa.yamaha.com
8 January 2014
  • Summary: I have been curious about keyboards and just couldn't bring myself to buy something cheap. A big leap for a first time user of anything with keys on it but I really am happy with all the features it's going to allow me to play with.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Low Power Consumption, Quality Construction

Wonderful Board

Chinamuzik, usa.yamaha.com
19 October 2013
  • Summary: This is my practice and gig board, it actually replaced my Roland XP-80 and Roland Juno Stage...I love that it's very similar to my Motif ES, very compatible, so very easy to use and set up. I love the fact that it's light weight, not as light as Roland Juno but for 88 keys, it's extremely light. The only thing i dont like about the MO X is da power chord, it's not sturdy enough (for me).
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Light Weight, Mobile Motif
  • Cons: Power Chord A Lil Flimsy

Excellent instrument for the price!

Blutoband, usa.yamaha.com
15 August 2013
  • Summary: I've been a Yamaha user for a number of years. Started with S90, then the S90ES. Bought this because of the virtually same features, minus the weight. Features the fabulous Motif soundbank (though I'm still using my Roland JV-880 for power horn section- why can't anyone else get this right?). The 64-voice polyphony is limiting- I wish I could set up a "big" sequence and play full-fisted piano with it without worrying about parts/notes disappearing.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Lightweight
  • Cons: 64-voice Polyphony, Manual Not Step-by-step, Volume Unassignable

Great affordable workstation

  • Summary: This was a very good workstation at a great price, but in the end I took it back for the better keybed/Action of the Yamaha S90XS.
  • Pros: Audio Interface, Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Voices
  • Cons: Action, Keybed, Keybedaction, Keybed And Action

Excellent Grand Piano Sound and More

rogers1313, usa.yamaha.com
14 May 2013
  • Summary: This keyboard had a fantastic grand piano sound. I found the this keyboard coupled with Yamaha Stagepas 500 PA speakers makes this as good as having 9 foot grand piano. The touch can be set in the Utility section to make the piano feel like a Steinway or a Baldwin or even like standard upright piano. Very impressed. I love this keyboard.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Realistic Sound, Responsive / Good Action, Touch Sensitive Keys

My first expensive keyboard

St8kout, usa.yamaha.com
12 May 2013
  • Summary: Lifelong non-professional guitarist but I wanted to learn piano/keyboard. For me this was the best bang(sound wise) for the buck. Realistic sound when paired with HS80M studio speakers. While there are many good basic electric pianos out there, I knew I would eventually want all the bells and whistles that comes with the MOX8. There is much to experiment with on this machine. Seems well constructed and thought out design-wise.
  • Pros: Portable, Pre-programmed music, Realistic Sound, Responsive / Good Action, Touch Sensitive Keys

Good Value, Portable

KGB, usa.yamaha.com
3 May 2013
  • Summary: All in all, a good keyboard. Sounds are varied and realistic for the most part. Would have liked to have had sliders to more easily emulate drawbars. Also, has no one from Yamaha ever played on a stage? It is IMPOSSIBLE to read the markings on the keyboard in typical bar or stage light conditions. Would gladly have paid a little more for backlit controls. Light weight is a very definite plus.
  • Pros: Portable, Realistic Sound, Responsive / Good Action
  • Cons: Buttons Not Backlit, Poor Instructions

MOX8

Mairaj, usa.yamaha.com
31 March 2013
  • Summary: I am going to make this straight to the point: Good: Over 1000 Great sounds, decent sound quality, easy to use sequencer(s) (linear and pattern based), good musical Ideas (128 X 2 Bank Performance presets). Plays well, with Sonar and Cubase, supports 64 and 32 bit computers systems. Bad: 64 note polyphony (are you kidding me?) 128 on MX and a board that cost twice as much has ½ ?
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Portable, Pre-programmed music, Realistic Sound, Responsive / Good Action
  • Cons: External Power Adaptor, Plastic Body, Polyphony

wonderful keyboard

  • Summary: Love it as I work till so late to get home. I can play the Mox8 with the headphone to enjoy my time. It will be great if it comes with even better weighted key system/type like the Balanced Hammer Effect Keyboard..

I love a light weight Motif XS

Jazzy Jack, usa.yamaha.com
15 March 2013
  • Summary: I am a long time Yamaha keyboard user and supporter. So, choosing a light weight version of the Motif XS is a no brainer for me. Since I own so many Yamaha keyboards, I was actual considering buying something else, just for sake of trying something new. Korg, Roland and many other companies now have light weight keyboards for gigs. I went and tried the other units, but the MOX 8, hands down had the better sound. Warm and realistic! I highly recommend this keyboard.
