Hi guys

From my last post I can conclude that the MODX can be regarded as a stripped down Montage, instead of the Motif as its predecessors.

Can I conclude that the Motif line will be discontinued and replaced by the Montage?

The Motif XF was discontinued over a year ago. There never was a Motif-Rack implementation of the XF, and the Motif-Rack XS has been discontinued. You can draw your own conclusions about the MOXF.

It’s my hope that Motifator will continue to support Motif-family models for as long as there’s interest in them.

Vic_Angel, while, Montage and MO-DX may in fact succeed the Motif/MoX
they are by no means replacements.  Because in several ways the Montage/MO-DX have less functionality than the Motif/MoX for example the Montage/MODX don’t have full sequencers, pattern sequencers, or integrated sampling.  The Super knob, and FM engine of the Montage/MODX are not adequate substitutes.

Now owning a Motif/Mox and some version of the Montage might be okay ;-) But the Montage is no replacement for a Motif!

Yep, the Motif XF/MOXF will be discontinued. Both use the previous generation tone generation ICs (SWP51L) and I doubt if Yamaha has any interest in keeping this old tech alive. I don’t see a Motif refresh happening; Yamaha is watching internal costs carefully and can’t afford too many different product lines/SKUs.

How-evah, the MOX6 is a keeper. It goes out every week to my church gig and I get a lot of value out of its sequencer, pattern/song mode, etc. I plan to get a MODX and keep the MOX6. I’ll deal off some other board, but not the MOX6.

All the best—pj
