This is my practice and gig board, it actually replaced my Roland XP-80 and Roland Juno Stage...I love that it's very similar to my Motif ES, very compatible, so very easy to use and set up. I love the fact that it's light weight, not as light as Roland Juno but for 88 keys, it's extremely light. The only thing i dont like about the MO X is da power chord, it's not sturdy enough (for me).

Excellent instrument for the price!
I've been a Yamaha user for a number of years. Started with S90, then the S90ES. Bought this because of the virtually same features, minus the weight. Features the fabulous Motif soundbank (though I'm still using my Roland JV-880 for power horn section- why can't anyone else get this right?). The 64-voice polyphony is limiting- I wish I could set up a "big" sequence and play full-fisted piano...

I've been a Yamaha user for a number of years. Started with S90, then the S90ES. Bought this because of the virtually same features, minus the weight. Features the fabulous Motif soundbank (though I'm still using my Roland JV-880 for power horn section- why can't anyone else get this right?). The 64-voice polyphony is limiting- I wish I could set up a "big" sequence and play full-fisted piano with it without worrying about parts/notes disappearing. Also, the other day I was trying to set up a Performance (layer) of piano & strings that would allow me to assign the strings volume to one of the assignable knobs. After poring through the manual(s), which are not very step-by-step oriented, I called Yamaha Support (always excellent). The tech told me that it wasn't possible- the only way would be to enter Edit Mode (on the fly) and affect the volume change from there!! (To his credit, the tech said he was also very surprised that this option had been left out.) Despite my small frustrations, I would heartily recommend the MOX8 to anyone looking for an entry-priced instrument that really performs!

Great affordable workstation
This was a very good workstation at a great price, but in the end I took it back for the better keybed/Action of the Yamaha S90XS.

Excellent Grand Piano Sound and More
This keyboard had a fantastic grand piano sound. I found the this keyboard coupled with Yamaha Stagepas 500 PA speakers makes this as good as having 9 foot grand piano. The touch can be set in the Utility section to make the piano feel like a Steinway or
