MODX gives you the confidence to take on any project, gig or musical exploration with amazing sound. Thanks to the combination of Yamaha’s two amazing synthesizer technologies: Advanced Wave Memory 2 (AWM2) and Expanded Frequency Modulation (FM-X). The result is a world of sound not possible with a single synth engine. Add to that a world of performance features and a lightweight design that can go just about anywhere with you, the MODX Series expands on the sophistication and inspiration that Yamaha keyboards are known for. MODX also features Yamaha’s proprietary Motion Control, which adds an unprecedented amount of movement to its AMW2 and FM-X combination sound engines.
Combined Synth Engines
MODX Keyboards feature the best of both worlds. Incorporating Yamaha’s Advanced Wave Memory 2 (AWM2) and Expanded Frequency Modulation (FM-X) sound engines, you get an exciting blend of sampled-based and FM synthesis technologies wrapped into one powerful instrument. AWM2 uses a combination of high-quality sound recordings with a powerful synthesizer engine to create stunning emulative acoustic instruments, synth sounds, drums and more. FM-X is a unique, expressive, highly programmable synthesis technology for dynamic music creation and sound design. At a basic level, FM-X works by using one sound to change (modulate) the pitch (frequency) of another. This method lends itself to creating harmonically rich and expressive sounds.
AWM2 works by breaking down sound into Elements. Elements can by layered for a thicker sound, split across various parts of the keyboard, switched in and out based on how hard you play, randomized and much more. Elements can also be shaped in terms of loudness, timbre and pitch and processed with high-quality DSP. AWM2 offers highly dynamic and expressive sound with unparalleled fidelity.
Music that Moves You
A MODX Performance has up to 16 Parts. A Part can be a stand- alone instrument like an acoustic bass or a synth lead. A Part can also be a component of a more complex sound. For example, an orchestral performance might use a single Part just to re-create the violin section. MODX continues the tradition of inspiring musicians to discover, create and control their own unique sound. The real-time control capabilities in MODX allow dynamic changes to your music. Orchestral brass swells that not only get louder but larger, textures that fade-in sounds while fading-out others or dynamic changes to multiple effect parameters simultaneously. This level of control empowers uniqueness where your approach to MODX is yours alone.
Using the MODX Motion Control Synthesis Engine allows precise, interactive control over all aspects of FM-X giving almost unlimited synthesis possibilities. The Super Knob is a powerful real-time macro controller. With the Super Knob, you can direct individual dynamic elements into a single musical expression. You can also change the shape of notes from long to short, bright to dark or move a player from being right next to you to the back of a concert hall. Like the Super Knob, the Motion Sequencer is like having an additional set of hands automatically interacting with the sound.
Made to Travel
The lightweight MODX is a dream to transport. Gone are the days of feeling exhausted after the load-in. With a modern, compact design, MODX provides sound power without power lifting. Yamaha has been making musical instruments that deliver amazing sound for over 130 years. MODX continues that traditional with amazing sound, expressive control and compact design.

Over 1000 Sounds from the MOTIF Series
The Yamaha MX61 61-Key Synthesizer contains more than 1000 Voices derived from the world-famous Yamaha MOTIF XS series. From realistic acoustic sounds like piano, electric piano, strings and drums to complex 8-element synth sounds, the MX61 has all of your favorite Motif XS Voices right at your fingertips. The MX61 even has a streamlined interface for instant hands-on selection of all those great Voices. The newly designed category selection makes it easier than ever to find the Voice you need. You can even edit and store your own sounds right onboard.
The MX61 synthesizer comes equipped with VCM effects, which simulate vintage effectors at the circuit level. The sounds of the '70s are brought back to life through simulations of hard-to-find vintage equalizer, flanger, phaser and wah effects introduced by the keyboard legends of the era.
Easy Split /Layer Performance Mode for Instant Inspiration
Performance Mode on the Motifs has always been the place to find instant inspiration and the MX is no different. You can easily combine two Voices to play on the keyboard using the dedicated Split and Layer buttons each with their own intelligent arpeggiator and a dedicated Part for a drum track to create evocative Performances that feel like a whole band is playing. The 128 Performances on the MX61 are all user editable, but come programmed with the latest club friendly grooves.
16-Part Multi Timbral and 128-note Polyphony
Each Performance contains not only the three sounds described above, but all the settings for a complete 16-Part Multi setting for play. You can switch between any of the 16 Parts without the sound cutting off. With 128 notes of polyphony there are plenty of notes to play even the densest sequences from your DAW. These features make the MX61 the perfect tone generator solution for live performance and live playback of DAW MIDI tracks.
Bi-directional USB Audio/MID Interfacing
But the MX61 doesn't just control software DAWs and VSTs. Just connect a USB cable to your computer and you can monitor all the sounds from your computer via the headphone output of the MX61 or listen to your DAW tracks by connecting the MX to external studio monitors or PA gear. The audio converters on the MX61 are made for professional music applications so everything on your computer, even games, will sound better when using the MX61 as the output. The MX61 interface is bi-directional so you can record the internal sounds of the MX61 directly to your computer, without ever going to the analog domain, for the highest possible quality.
Extensive Hands-On Controls for VSTs and DAWs
The MX61 also features solid knobs and durable buttons for controlling internal sounds, DAW parameters and VST instruments. The deceptively simple interface is combined with a remote template editor on your computer so any VST you own or any new VSTs you buy can be easily set up to be controlled by the MX. There are advanced integration templates for use with a variety of DAWs. When used with Cubase, there is even an AI knob so any parameter can be controlled by the large rotary encoder just by mousing over it. It has never been quicker to take full control of Cubase.
A Complete Suite of Music Production Software Included
The MX series is the only hardware synth in its price range to come with a complete suite of music production software tools. The included Steinberg Cubase AI features 48 audio tracks and 64 MIDI tracks, notation, built-in VST effects, so with just the MX and AI you can do complete productions. But we didn't stop there; it comes bundled with Steinberg Prologue and the Yamaha YC-3B organ emulator so you have some compelling VSTs to get started. Plus there are Remote Template editors for setting up controls of VSTs. Finally, Yamaha has worked with some third party developers to ensure that there will be fully functional cross platform editors available at release.
Complete Analog and Digital Connectivity
In addition to the USB audio/MIDI port, the MX61 has a USB to Device port so you can connect USB devices for storing MX data to external memory and even playing back wave files directly from a USB stick. If you want to add a tablet or an MP3 player to your system just connect to the AUX input using a mini stereo cable and you are ready to go.
A Lightweight Design with a Quality Yamaha Keyboard
While almost all other keyboard controllers use inexpensive OEM keyboards, the MX61 features an expertly crafted keyboard that only Yamaha -- the world's largest keyboard manufacturer -- could produce. Weighing only 3.8kg (MX49) or 4.8kg (MX61), either synthesizer can be carried easily with one hand. MX synthesizers have a compact design so they are easy to carry to the gig and also fit easily into today's compact home music production studios.
Combines Motif XS sounds, USB Audio/MIDI connectivity and advanced DAW/VST controller features at a groundbreaking level of affordability.
