Hi -

I own two 88 key, piano action-like keyboards (Kawai MP11 and Casio PX5S), which are good for playing piano. A friend has the old Motif ES (77) key and makes excellent mock-ups on it.  I have DAWS, but would like a hardware composing-arranging solution as well.  There are no 77 key versions of the MOFX.  Three questions:

1.  Is the 88 key version keybed the same on as in the (excellent) CP4 and if not, what is the difference?

2.  Other than keybed, are the 61 and 88 key versions identical?

3.  If I get the 61 key version, can I use one of my 88 key slabs via MIDI, accessing all of the MOFX functions?

Thanks,

- Jeff Newton (saxophonist-pianist)

Hi

Answer to #1: I don’t know how it is on the CP4 but I know that the MOFX8 is not bad at all.

Answer to #2: Yes

Answer to #3: not all the functions but you can for sure trigger the sounds of your MOXF6 from your 88 keyboards via MIDI

Greetings!

Thank you!  I am looking at this unit primarily for composing - arranging, so I’m hoping that all of the arranging functions will be available.  If you know, which ones are not?  Thanks again…

The CP4 has the 88-key NW–GH (Natural Wood Graded Hammer) action.

The MOXF 8 has the GHS (Graded Hammer Standard)

Here’s some info from Yamaha.

Thank you Philwoodmusic!.  Had me do a double take there, as I first saw “Phil Woods,” the great altoist.
