That depends on how you define “sounds”. Number of Voices, number of Waveforms, size of Wave ROM, etc.?

These might help:

Are Arps important to you? The XS has 6,633. The MX has 999.

The MX does a lot, for the price - but it’s not an XS.

Since you need to compare sounds, this might be of help: (I submitted this info in another trend, it compares a MOXF vs a MX however since the MOXF contains the same sounds that the MotifXF has, it can be of help)

I know there has been a loooooong discussion about a MOFX and a MOTIF XF, which is not the point of my comment, but between a MOXF and a MX there are differences. Since a MX model has a smaller ROM it’s expected that the sound might be different.

I own a MOXF and I played a MX Keyboard, my perception was that Pianos and Electric pianos sounded the same but some acoustic guitars sounded duller when playing the MX model. I just watched two videos and I perceived the same. Even though there are differences, I’d like to purchase a MX88 since my MOXF is a 61 keys keyboard and I like all its features.
