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 MODX8 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

As far as I know, you can set up the assignable footswitch to advance through a list.

Yes - there’s 1GB of User flash in the MODX. That capacity is not expandable.

I suggest that you download the manuals from Yamaha for details, they’re available online.
