Wow is this thing light. For a machine less than half the price of the Montage with almost the same features you can't go wrong. The feel of the keys are a little disappointing but they had to cut costs somewhere. The keys are noisy and feel the same as they do on their PSR $200 keyboards. The sounds are fantastic although there are not as many oscillators, true analog circuits as in their Montage and the FM polyphony is cut in half I don't think many people will notice. It can load Montage sounds and has fully functional DAW capabilities. I have both the Montage and MODX and they sound the same to me. The feel of the keys was the reason I added the Montage to my rig, it's a personal thing and I couldn't get past the feel of the MODX. If you don't need all the extra DAW audio channels and outputs and want a nice light powerhouse of a machine for gigging you will enjoy this Keyboard. You can't beat what you get in this for the price.

These are incredible value, these MODXs. I bought one to replace my Motif, and have zero regrets. (Although it has no aftertouch). It has some very "modern" sounding patches and performances, but I use it mostly for ePianos and clavs, etc, which it excels at as well. The grand piano is not the best (I'm a Nord player), but it is as good as it needs to be for pop music. The epianos are top notch. It's also very light, and the MODX7 being 44 inches, is only 3 inches bigger than a Kronos61...but much lighter. It's plastic, not metal, is one reason. There are lots of cool beats that can be added to every patch as well. I'm very happy with this synth.
