Hi all,

Not really sure of the correct forum to post this in - please delete if inappropriate.

I’ve recently purchased a Roland FA-08 and am not completely satisfied with it. The main reason being that the sound cuts off when changing Studio Sets (Performances in Yamaha terminology) and the methods to get around that aren’t satisfactory either; even when using keyboard switch groups the master volume resets to maximum no matter what my expression pedal is at. Useless.

Plus the inability to load my own samples and play them on the keyboard is proving to be a problem.

I bought the FA-08 as I liked the action over the MOXf8 but I’m now regretting the decision…

So my questions re the MOX8 and Montage 8 are:

* How many parts can I use in one Performance (within a Live Set)? e.g. the FA-08 lets me layer up to 16 sounds in one Studio Set.
* Can I change Performances/Live Sets using a footswitch?
* Can I load my own samples in and play them on the keyboard?

Thanks!

Your post title references the MODX8, and your post body references the MOXF8 and the MOX8.

We’re not really sure which machine you are talking about!

With regard to the MODX and Montage, this Forum does not really deal with those 2 machines.

In any event, you have posted in the Motif XF section, which is something entirely different from any of the above.

You may have the best luck discussing the MODX and/or the Montage (if those are the machines you are comparing here per your title) in the Lounge section.

Apologies, I meant the MODX8.
