Empower your creativity, take control and stand out from the crowd with the Yamaha MODX8: a compact, lightweight synthesizer designed for inspired music-making.


The power of the MODX synthesis engine allows unlimited potential to create your own unique sound demanded by any artist. Bring the sophistication of music production automation to realtime live performance with Motion Control.

Sound is the most important aspect of any instrument. MODX will make your music sound amazing.

The MODX uses the same technology powering the flagship MONTAGE: AWM2 (Advanced Wave Memory 2) sample and synthesis engine for stunning emulative acoustic instruments, synth sounds and drums.

MODX also features FM-X (Frequency Modulation) a unique, expressive, highly-programmable synthesis technology for dynamic, electro-modern music creation.

Only found in Yamaha music synthesizers, the AWM2 engine offers much more than just sample playback. Each of the 16 AWM2 Parts feature eight programmable synthesizers with a Filter (18 different Types!), Amplitude, Pitch and Filter Envelope Generators, nine LFOs, 3-band EQ and a dedicated Dual Insert Effect with Virtual Circuitry Modeling.

FM-X produces classic ‘80s or cutting-edge, EDM synthesizer sound with incredible dynamic range, power and fidelity. MODX goes well beyond the capabilities of the original DX7 with an 8-Operator FM architecture, 64-note polyphony, many Filter Types and more. Create sounds no one has ever heard with Motion Control for ever-evolving and changing textures.

MODX features 128-note stereo AWM2 polyphony and 64-notes of FM-X polyphony. Due to the unique architecture of MODX and MONTAGE, this polyphony is always available without latency or compromising other features.

MODX includes 1 GB of non-volatile, low latency User Flash Memory with high speed reading/writing for your own custom Samples or Synth Libraries from yamahamusicsoft.com

From high definition Reverbs to detailed Virtual Circuit Modeling (VCM) effects, MODX features DSP innovation, power and sound quality. Use effects like Beat Repeat, Vinyl Break, or Bit Crusher to get EDM sound. The Spiralizer effect creates the auditory illusion of a tone continuously rising or falling in pitch.

You can even add a Compressor with Sidechain for a modern “ducking” effect. Or go retro with vintage effects like Analog Delay, VCM Phaser, or a variety of Amp Simulators.

Piano players will appreciate piano-focused effects like Damper Resonance for a super-realistic piano experience and the HD Reverbs that let you put yourself in any performance space.

Out of the box, MODX offers access to one of the largest sound libraries ever – over 35 years in the making by our world-class sound designers and artists.

MODX is directly compatible with MONTAGE as well as MOTIF XS/XF and MOXF Voices and Performances.

The free FM Converter Web App on YamahaSynth.com makes it compatible with DX7, DX7II, TX802, and TX816 synthesizer content as well.

The Super Knob allows simultaneous control of up to 128 parameters in a single Performance. This means you can control mix functions like Volume, Pan, and Effect Sends or detailed synth parameters like Filters, LFOs, and Operators.

You can even control the Super Knob with an FC7 foot controller making it easy to manipulate the sound when playing with both hands.

Wow what a machine, sound of all instruments is amazing, takes a bit of learning how t use the superknob and assigning but well worth the use. Key bed is not as good as I thought it was going to be at the price, but as it was the sound and key bed I was looking for then to me it hits the right note. A fantastic keyboard thar seems to do everything I need and a whole heap more that I haven?t found yet. Buy one they are amazing
