here is going to be able to tell you whether you’ll find the MOXF8 keyboard to be a suitable substitute for the action on the XF8. There’s no doubt that it’s different. Some people will think it’s fine, some won’t, and there’s no way to know which camp you’ll be in, you’ll have to try it yourself. If you can’t find a MOXF8 nearby to try, you can try a P35, P105, DGX650, or MOX8, all of which will feel similar.

Just one quick comment on this. I personally upgraded from MOX8 to MOXF8, and there is a very big difference when i comes feeling of the keybed… :)

I would love to have an MOXF to gig with that could accept all of my Motif XF programs with simple transfers and leave my Motif XF at home.

Alas, I play the Motif 7, I don’t want the weighted feel of the 8 as I am much more synth/organ than piano.  And the 6 is an octave too short for all of my splits and layers I program into my Motif XF7.

A part of me thinks a second board should actually do something different than board 1.  MOXF would be cool if there was a 7 though (hint, cough, ...)

BM said same keys for mox8 and MOXF8.

Personally I feel moxf8 has quieter keys. I have played on a MOX8 and MOXF8 side by side.  They have reduced the noise in the upgrade.  It is very noticeable.

Maybe the materials used came from a different batch, perhaps with better quality.

“BM said same keys for mox8 and MOXF8.” - Are you sure about this? Maybe the keys are made from the same material, but the action feels so different…

At first I didn’t feel the need to upgrade (MOX8 to MOXF8). The Flashboard and the upgrade of sounds were not enough to justify an upgrade for me. BUT after trying out the keybed of the MOXF8 i changed my mind. The keybed was actually (almost) the only thing that I didn’t like to much on the MOX8. But to me, the MOXF8 feels much more stable and a bit heavier.

Yes.  I recall BM’s reply to a thread.  MOX8 and MOXF8 use GHS.  No mention on material quality, batches, manufacturing processes though. 

I definitely feel and hear a difference.  MOXF8 keys are noticeably quieter.  Rebound speed is about the same.  So, it is still GHS. 

Just that the key noise is almost eliminated.
