I think this is one of the first reviews I’ve done that needs a two-parter just to cover the basics, but the Yamaha MoX6 does have a lot to offer. In this part we cover Performances, Arpeggiator, Drum sounds and the final round up.

Please refer to the original review text here.

Available now.
MXx6 £1051 / $1499
MoX8  88 key weighted keyboard £1576 / $1999

I'm sold! Had to sell my trust Fantom X6 that I've had for years and I no longer have the money to purchase a similar product. But this moX6 seems to fit my needs at an easy price. Thank Nick.

ps: BTW, your studio looks like my room, cables everywhere.

yes I must say I am impressed with this - I had fallen into the easy notion that all this Motifery was sad and tired but its not the case.

yes, must tidy room - with so much stuff coming through the setup gets moved about a lot and it builds up.

I'm at once impressed by the deepness and power of the synth, as well as daunted by the complexity.

More generally, while it's great that all modern synths can have their sounds tweaked in software, what happens 10 years from now when no one is using the same OS and the app used to control the (now many-years-discontinued) synths won't work with the new OSes? I am very concerned that we are seeing a whole generation of synths that will be close to useless 20 years from now.

Could you please do a video on how to set up the MOX. Starting with what drivers to download, how to properly change the setting on the keyboard and in the software(Cubase.) Also show how to set up for Remote Control/ Transport Control in other DAW's.
