These two issues should be fixed:

1.  Problem:  Only one part can be controlled by an assignable knob at a time, even though each of the four parts can be set to respond, or not, to AS1 or AS2.  If a part was the last function to be selected for edit, AS1 and 2 will only affect that part, and none of the other three.  ALL performances are affected by edit selections in ANY performance.  If a common function was the last thing to be selected for edit, NO part of ANY performance will respond to AS1 or 2.

Fix:  Any part that is set to receive AS1 or 2 should be affected by them unconditionally according to the control sets in Voice mode.  The display has plenty of room to show up to four functions and values, including their offsets.

2.  Problem.  Shutting off the MOX and turning it back on causes the Performance edit selection to default to Common...so AS1 and 2 will not do anything until a part is selected for edit.

Fix:  No stored edit should be affected by turning the MOX off and on.  Of course fixing problem #1 should fix problem #2.

Having no reliable assignable knobs is major malfunction.  It should have been fixed a long time ago (assuming there’s not a fix that I don’t know about).  The MOX may be a few years old but it’s still near ideal as an alternative to clunky, much heavier (and more expensive) boards for live gigs.  Yamaha should continue to support it.
