by Peter Young from Haverhill, MAVery simply, the best 88 key weighted workstation available for under $2000. Great interface, amazing sound, amazingly portable.

As I took it out of the box I was shocked about size - it was twice the size my FP-4 - an instrument that I already considered big and heavy... read more [+] enough.
Just about 10 seconds later, even without pluggin' it in, I already loved it - It had great, flimsy lookin' but sturdy design, keys felt great and I couldn't wait to put my hands on it.
As I hadn't had Yamaha for a long time, a little trial and error came handy - I didn't bother to read the manual - Instrument is logical and you do not really need a manual unless you haven't had a synth before. Of course - this concernes only common tasks - such as changing sounds, layeryng sounds, changing tempo etc...
In just about 15 minutes I found sounds that Depeche Mode (original DX7) and Vangelis (DX1) used (excuse me, if I'm wrong) , not to mention the sounds that were used by Euryhhmics back on 80's and 90's... this instrument is packed. And it's beautyful!
Key response is very good! Keys itself are little soft but action and sounding is fantastic. A board you can not beat!
I had only one opportunity -
I was in need to get a synthesizer with 88 keys and hammer action. I had ~1500 $ - thought that's impossible... I was 2000 $ short.
Thanks for Yamaha I now own one! :) close [-]

Two Weeks And I Still Can't Stop Smiling!!!
by Joe Krol from Mountainhome PAMy church has always had a Yamaha Motif XS8 so when we got rid of our old piano and I started looking for a keyboard I was spoiled. But I didn't have the money for a Motif so I was looking used, and ... read more [+]not happy with what I was finding. Then I came across the the MOX8 and my head began to turn. I began shopping around and the deal that Sweetwater gave me with their 2 year warranty could not be beat. I ordered it on a Monday and received it on Wednesday.

OK the sounds are fantastic (they should be it has the MOTIF XS Sound Engine) but until you hook it up to a good amp or good set of head phones and look for the nuances you don't realize how good. When you bring up the concert grand for example you get the hammer strike and string sounds yes but when you get to the upper notes you even hear the wood case resonating like you would on a real piano. UNBELIEVABLE...the classical guitar you can hear the finger plucking the strings...the different groves it gives you are inspiring and I can see myself using this to write allot of music with. Plus it has a multi-channel USB Audio Interface and comes with Cue base AI5 which I haven't even begun to play with yet. It's light weight but doesn't feel light weight. What I mean by that is you won't get a hernia picking the thing up but it feels the same as playing a MOTIF not cheep. Some people may not like the light weight aspect but I love it because I'm disabled and if we need to move it into another room or clean around it my wife and my 12 year old daughter can move it with ease.
If you have been looking for a great keyboard and that pulls out all the stops without sucking the bank account dry this is it. It has the power and features to play with the big boys and you will not be missing a thing. close [-]
The Yamaha M08X is a keyboard players dream! This powerful workstation packs a giant punch right out of the box. It's simple to pull up a sound and just play, but at the same time gives you the breadth and depth to dive-in and edit the sounds to your liking. I've used this keyboard in the studio and in live settings, and its power cannot be overstated. It's efficient, easy to use, and a blast to have.
