Frequently Asked Questions

What are the shipping rates?

We offer free shipping on most items to metro areas in ACT, NSW, VIC, and QLD. If you are in a regional area we do offer great shipping rates, though it is often too expensive for us to offer free shipping. You can calculate shipping costs in the checkout and on item pages with your postcode.
Orders under $50 incur a minimum order fee to cover shipping.

Standard vs Express Shipping

Our shipping platform will automatically determine and display the Express or Standard shipping options that are available to you. If Express is not displaying, you're either located too far away from our store in Canberra, or the Standard shipping option will get it to you just as fast for the same price. Express shipping is 1-5 days, Standard 2-10 days depending on how far you are away from our store in Canberra.

What payment methods do you offer?

    For the piano player needing a piano-focused instrument with a huge variety of sound, MODX is a synthesizer with an 88-note, weighted keyboard action. MODX has over 125 years of Yamaha piano-making craftsmanship coupled with over 40 years of creating industry-leading synthesizers.

    Sound is the most important aspect of any instrument. The power of the MODX synthesis engine allows unlimited potential to create your own unique sound demanded by any artist.

    The MODX sound engine is based on the same technology powering the flagship MONTAGE: AWM2 (Advanced Wave Memory 2) sample and synthesis engine and a pure FM-X (Frequency Modulation) synthesizer modernized for amazing sound playback and complex sound design.

    MODX features 128-note stereo AWM2 polyphony and 64-notes of FM-X polyphony. Due to the unique architecture of MODX and MONTAGE, this polyphony is always available without latency or compromising other features.

    MODX includes 1 GB of non-volatile user flash memory with high speed reading/writing for your own custom samples or synth libraries from yamahamusicsoft.com.

    EFFECTS
    From high definition reverbs to incredibly detailed Virtual Circuit Modeling (VCM) effects, MODX is loaded with DSP innovation, power and, most importantly, sound quality. Use effects like Beat Repeat, Vinyl Break or Bit Crusher to get EDM sound. The Spiralizer effect creates the auditory illusion of a tone continually rising or falling in pitch without getting higher or lower.

    You can even add a compressor with sidechain for a modern “ducking” effect. Or go retro with vintage effects like Analog Delay, VCM Phaser or a variety of Amp Simulators. Piano players will appreciate piano-focused effects like Damper Resonance for a super-realistic piano experience and the HD reverbs that let you put yourself in any performance space.

    A/D INPUT
    Coupled with two A/D inputs, MODX is a perfect centerpiece for any professional recording studio or live computer rig.

    SIDECHAIN
    Automatically control the dynamic behavior of one part from another. Sidechain is very popular in modern dance music where a pad or other sustain part is “keyed” to the kick drum. When the kick drum plays, it ducks down the sustained part creating a “pumping” rhythmic effect.

    MULTI-CHANNEL USB AUDIO INTERFACE
    As expected for modern computer-based music production, MODX features a professional 4-in/10-out, multi-channel USB audio interface. A single-cable connection replaces the need for an external audio interface. iOS compatible.

    WHAT IS MODX?

    • Empower your creativity, take control and stand out from the crowd with MODX: a compact, lightweight synthesizer designed for inspired music-making.
    • MODX features the same technology as MONTAGE: AWM2 (Advanced Wave Memory 2) sample and synthesis engine and pure FM-X (Frequency Modulation) synthesizer modernized for amazing sound playback and complex sound design.
    • Three different models: MODX6: 61-key semi-weighted ▸ MODX7: 76-key semi-weighted ▸ MODX8: 88-key graded and weighted
