Yamaha MODX Synthesizer


#21

My heart stops every time I see that mock-up. :smiley:


#22

I like this. In 2034 I’ll pick one up off ebay


#23

We’re having a laugh at those on the other thread


#24

A Keytar so sharp you risk amputating your hand! And it’s bright RED! I am soo cool – :sunglasses:
I am glad you made a special announcement Roland.

ADDED: Oh i see you can make it any color you want. That seems to be a trend – Korg now has the Nanos in color now too.

I’m guessing Roland will have a real answer to the MODX by Winter NAMM, unless this new Juno DS has some kind of hidden synthesis powers - unlikely as Roland would have proudly trumpeted it. I’m guessing it’s just another repackaging of the aging SuperNATURAL hybrid rompler-modeling engine.

They already have a Juno model with hybrid analog monosynth-digital engine.

The Yamaha announcement must really be special, for them to decide (and pay for) Nick Batt to fly to NYC for the show just for the publicity!


#27

All jokes aside I want that red and black keytar. I need to shred basslines on that with a Megadeath shirt on. Did I just say Megadeath? Yes I outed myself and my age.

I wanted to talk about it on the 909 thread but they turned into an iPad thread

Pardon me for posting on-topic…

“Yamaha is launching their new MODX range of compact, lightweight synthesizers. The lineup consists of the MODX6 and MODX7, with 61 and 76 synth-weighted keybeds, and the 88-note MODX8 with Graded Hammer Standard action.”

#32

WTH… Sweetwater just took that page down.


#33

We still have an hour and a half to go – that’s why i put up these videos they’re directly from Yamaha, so they’re official not leaked.


#34

Didn’t realize there’s a schedule. I guess this one will be taken down soon too.


#35

from your link Guv:

“and performance tools like vinyl brake”

I love jargon – what the heck is a vinyl brake?


#36

Like when you stop a turntable and it slows to a stop, I guess.


#37

For all we know it could be more Internet forum created fake news. “brake”… LOL


#38

I didn’t mention the “Spiralizer pitchshift effect”, because i know exactly what that is, and believe me no synth shall ever be played by me without it!

ADDED LATER: Spiralizer – means some version of a Shepard tone – that auditory effect of a continuously rising tone.


#39

OK so there is a:
MODX6
MODX7
MODX8

I wonder how much difference there is between them beyond the keyboard (and price)?
