THE LATEST AND GREATEST YAMAHA PERFORMANCE MODX6 KEYBOARDS ARE MODELLED ON THE MONTAGE RANGE OF POWERFUL SYNTHESIZERS.
Sound is the most important aspect of any keyboard. The MODX6 has a very powerful synthesis engine which allows unlimited creativity. Create your own unique sound palette. The MODX6 uses the same advanced technology which is the heart of the flagship Yamaha MONTAGE workstation. With two Iconic Sound Engines designed for amazing sound playback the MODX impressively allows complex sound design.
Only found in Yamaha music synthesizers, the AWM2 engine offers more than just sample playback. All of the 16 AWM2 parts feature eight fully-programmable synths with a filter. That’s 18 different types of synths, amplitude, pitch and filter envelope generators. And also nine LFOs, a 3-band EQ and a dedicated dual insert effect with Virtual Circuitry Modelling.
FM-X is an amazingly sophisticated pure synthesizer engine. This is capable of producing classic ‘80s or cutting-edge, EDM sound with incredible dynamic range, power and fidelity. MODX features an 8-operator FM architecture and 64-note polyphony. Get those big, fat sounds that blow you away.
192-NOTE TOTAL POLYPHONY
MODX features 128 note stereo AWM2 polyphony and 64 notes of FM-X polyphony. This is massive! Due to the unique architecture of MODX6 and MONTAGE, this polyphony is always available without latency. Or without compromising other features. Your productions will sounds huge.
SSS (SEAMLESS SOUND SWITCHING)
Seamless Sound Switching (SSS) lets you change performances seamlessly without any cut-off in envelope or effects. This is perfect for live performances where you end one song and start another without stopping. Very handy.
* This function is only available for Performances that have a maximum of 4 parts.
MODX includes 1 GB of non-volatile user flash memory with high speed reading/writing. Create your own custom samples. Add further synth libraries from yamahamusicsoft.com. It’s unlimited.
High definition reverbs and incredibly detailed Virtual Circuit Modelling (VCM) effects are in the MODX6. DSP innovation, power and sound quality come at no extra charge. Use effects like Beat Repeat, Vinyl Break or Bit Crusher to get EDM sound. The Spiralizer effect creates the auditory illusion of a tone continually rising or falling in pitch without getting higher or lower.
Add a compressor with side-chain for a modern “ducking” effect. 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 will let you put yourself in any performance space.
The Super Knob allows simultaneous control of up to 128 parameters in a single Performance. This means you can control nearly anything from mix functions like volume, pan and effect sends. Also have live control over detailed synth parameters like filters, LFOs and Operators.
That’s 128 parameters…SIMULTANEOUSLY!
The Super Knob can even be assigned to a second FC7 foot controller. This makes it easy to manipulate the sound when playing with both hands.
Coupled with two A/D inputs, MODX is a perfect centrepiece for any professional recording studio or live computer rig.
Automatically control the dynamic behaviour of one part from another. Sidechain is very popular in modern dance music where a pad or other sustain part is “keyed” to the kick drum. When the kick drum plays, it ducks down the sustained part creating a “pumping” rhythmic effect.
MULTI-CHANNEL USB AUDIO INTERFACE
The MODX6 features a professional 4-in/10-out, multi-channel USB audio interface. A single-cable connection replaces the need for an external audio interface. iOS compatible.
Every artist wants to sound unique so take control and stand out from the crowd. Bring the sophistication of music production automation to real-time live performance with Motion Control.
Motion Sequences are tempo-synchronised control sequences which are able to be customised. These can be assigned to virtually any synthesizer parameter. These provide incredible new ways of creating sound.
Motion Sequences also have dedicated controls on the front panel. This makes it easy to manipulate and change in real-time, providing incredible interactivity and expression.
