What's more, the MODX8+ has double the polyphony of the original MODX8, allowing for even more complex and layered sounds.

The MODX8+ synthesizer is available at Irvine Art & Music and is designed to inspire awe and bring your musical ideas to life. Whether you're looking to unlock a world of sound or create unique textures with evolving effects, the MODX8+ has you covered.

With its cutting-edge AWM2 (Advanced Wave Memory 2) engine and FM-X (Frequency Modulation) synth architecture, the MODX8+ delivers sounds that are exclusive to Yamaha synthesizers. The AWM2 engine boasts 16 parts, with eight programmable synthesizers apiece. Each of these contains 18 filter types, amplitude, pitch, and filter envelope generators, a 3-band EQ, nine LFOs, and a dedicated dual insert effect featuring Virtual Circuit Modeling for stunningly realistic sound reproduction.

The 8-operator FM-X architecture of the MODX8+ takes the legendary Yamaha DX7 to the next level, offering classic '80s or modern EDM synth tonality with superb fidelity, dynamic range, and power. With Smart Morph, you can transition between up to eight FM-X sounds via the touchscreen or Super Knob, using cutting-edge A.I. algorithms and interacting morphing maps. The resulting combination of the AWM2 and FM-X engines offers a profound plethora of gorgeous sounds, begging to be blended and manipulated into something entirely new.
