Good service kind ppl
I lost my muse and the MX88 has helped me regain it! I love this axe! Is this the greatest board ever no, that one hasn't been created yet. (My opinion of course) But for quality piano/keyboard patches this works. The other patches hold up well. The semi-weighted key action fantastic...realness. Bottom line I'm inspired to play. It's 2a.m. And I'm awake. hope the neighbors got their rest...Finally the only reason for four stars and not 5 a little disappointed w the rhythm section selection. For the price VERY satisfied
The MX88 is a remarkable value for anyone interested in an 88-key hammer action keyboard. Far more than a piano, the MX88 boasts the Motif engine, includes a USB audio interface, and despite its simple and logical control layout, is deep enough for synth geeks to enjoy. It also has great DAW integration. Very underrated! Also, if you are planning on buying one, go to Sam Ash. Few other places employ people who really know and use the gear!
Fantastic sounds and I love the weighted keys.
I use this keyboard for all my shows and in the studio. Has great sounds and is very light weight!
In all candor, I liked the weighted-hammer action of the Roland XV88 more. But considering that I have finally abandoned the Roland after a dozen weights have broken off (and the rest are all cracked!) I can only hope that what's under the hood of the Yamaha will be more durable. Speaking of durability, please note that the entire case of the synth is plastic -- definitely not made for traveling. So while the instrument is lighter in weight than many others, you'll need to consider an appropriate case to transport it. The factory-ready voices are quite realistic -- especially good piano patches -- but you will want to modify a number of them for performance, and I can't help but think that it needn't be so complicated to create them and store them. Of course, it might be elementary to you, but I've always struggled with that and the Yamaha is no exception. Most important of all, though: you're really going to enjoy playing this instrument, whether through external amplification of all kinds or a good set of studio cans.

It's marvelous. The AWM2 engine sounds amazing, and the 1,100 presets straight from the Motif XS make this keyboard a killer deal. The sound blows me away; and unlike the MoxF of the Motif XF, the MX is INCREDIBLY easy to use and understand.
The Yamaha MX-88 synthesizer provides a realistic feel of an acoustic piano with the portability of the electronic keyboard. The full concert grand piano is perfect for any style of music, with a wide range of sounds. The synthesizer has over 1000 voices from MOTIF. Unlike most portable synthesizer, this is a full sized, 88 key piano. There is a pitch bend functionality and it has midi capabilities. It provides several different options of sound, including the organ, a clav, or even the harpsichord. This makes it a dynamic choice that can be used in several situations. It even possesses different types of guitars, drum kits, and strings. Those sounds make it a good choice for an educator, composer, or even just a hobbyist. The sounds can be layered to make for a thick, full sounding piece. However, when looking into this synth, you should also keep an eye out for a set of speakers, as the MX-88 does not have any built in.
