Yamaha’s proprietary VCM (Virtual Circuitry Modeling) technology simulates the effects of vintage EQs, compressors, and phasers at the circuit level. This technology has enabled Yamaha to improve the quality of the instruments in the MOXF by modeling the sonic texture of vintage analog compressors, EQs and stomp boxes right down to their component transistors and resistors. The MOXF also puts the high-quality effects found in Yamaha's industry-standard digital recording consoles at your fingertips, as well as the award-winning REV-X reverb found in the SPX2000. It even comes equipped with vocoder effects, allowing you to connect a microphone to the MOXF’s A/D input terminal and apply effects to your voice or create stunning harmonies.

- Built-in sequencer to give shape to your inspiration

MOXF features a built-in sequencer that lets you produce high-quality music without the need for a computer or any other external devices. This powerful tool offers both real-time recording, which records your performance data as you play it, and step recording, which is suitable for recording precise phrases or other difficult passages. You can even record particularly creative performances directly to a song or pattern simply by pressing the [REC] button.

Advanced computer integration makes the MOXF the center of your music production studio

 

01 A complete suite of bundled software

The MOXF comes with a variety of music production software that allows you to integrate it with your computer setup. These include the MOXF Editor for detailed editing of voice and mixing parameters, MOXF Remote Editor, a convenient tool that lets you edit and create control templates for your favorite VST instruments, and Remote Tools, which makes integration with Cubase software incredibly simple.

03 Music production with Cubase AI 7

Cubase AI 7 is a version of Steinberg’s DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) software made specifically to integrate with Yamaha music production synthesizers. Because the MOXF features both a MIDI and an audio interface you can record up to 32 audio and 48 MIDI tracks. You can even connect an analog mixer, microphone or guitar to the analog inputs, you can record any instrument to your computer via the MOXF. With built-in effects and the ability to control up to 16 VST instruments, Cubase AI lets you perform the complete computer music production process, including notation, scoring, and automated mixing.

Easy operation and comprehensive controls

Category search mode makes it fast and intuitive get to your ideal instrument. 16 different instrument categories with sub-categories make it quick to get the sound you need. With the Performance Creator (a new feature taken from the S90 XS, you can easily build up layer or split Performances by a single button press. Start with a Voice you like, press LAYER and a suitable layer sound will be chosen. Press SPLIT and a left hand Bass sound is called up automatically. Go to DRUM ASSIGN and you can play along with the tons of built in rhythm patterns.

Plenty of Effets including Virtual Circuitry Modeling effects

MOX has a wide variety of effects for both the internal keyboard sounds and for use with the A/D inputs including a Vocoder for vocal formant controlled synth sounds.. Also Yamaha's proprietary VCM (Virtual Circuitry Modeling) technology that, rather than simply attempting to approach the desired sound using conventional digital audio methods, actually models the original analog circuitry — right down to the last resistor and capacitor. With the MOX, the high-quality effects found in our industry-standard digital recording consoles are at your fingertips. MOX also includes the award-winning "REV-X" reverb, the same professionally renowned reverb found in the SPX2000.

Sequencer mode to build up your inspiration as quickly as possible

MOX features a built-in sequencer which lets you produce high-quality music productions without the need for a computer or any other external devices. The sequencer features both real-time recording, which records your performance data as you play it, and Step recording, which is suitable for recording precise phrases or other difficult passages. Moreover, you can use the creative inspiration from Performances and directly record them to a Song/Pattern simply by pressing the [REC] button. After creating the outline in a matter of seconds you can easily edit and refine your song to final completion right on the MOX. MOX features 6,720 types of arppegiator patterns which contains all the phrase of instruments, so you can easily add additional part onto your song data.

A single USB cable for both Audio and MIDI connections

A single USB cable lets you integrate both Audio and MIDI with your MAC or PC computer. MOX has a built-in 4-in 2-out USB audio interface so you can record MOX's internal sound directly to your MAC or PC. Two dedicated audio inputs can be used to recording guitars and vocals into your computer. Compatible with all the major DAWs including Cubase, you can digitally record the sounds of the MOX and anything connected to the stereo analog inputs directly to your favorite DAW. Not only for music production, the USB connectivity and in-depth keyboard controller functionality lets you also playback and control your VST soft synths via the audio outputs of your MOX, allowing you to easily integrate VSTs into your live stage shows with no extra gear- just add computer and play.

Bundled software and editors

The MOX comes bundled with a 48-track version of Steinberg's Cubase AI software, Prologue, Steinberg's VA soft synth for vintage analog synth sounds and a new Yamaha Organ YC-3B "Clonewheel" organ emulation VST. (The installer package of Soft synthesizers is available at yamahasynth.com) Dedicated Editor Software lets you easily edit your MOX just like a soft synthesizer. In fact, by using the MOX Editor VST, you can turn the MOX into a hardware accelerated VSTi. Combined with Media Bay in Cubase, you can categorize and select MOX's sound from a unified universal library of all your VST sounds. There is even a special editor for setting up the MIDI keyboard controls and remote functions. The MOX is the latest and best example of Yamaha's commitment to integrating our keyboards into the computer music production environment.

88-key Graded Hammer Standard(GHS) action, and new 61-key semi-weighted action

The MOX8 features an 88-key GHS keyboard. This feature provides authentic, realistic keyboard response—much like the playing feel of an acoustic piano—with the lower keys being heavy in touch, the higher keys light, and all the natural gradations in between. The MOX6 features a newly developed, 61-key, semi-weighted keyboard. The keyboard has been designed and adjusted so that you easily and expressively play the rich variety of sounds of the instrument.

Mobility – Light and easy to carry

The Lightweight bodies (MOXF6: 7.0kg(15.4 lbs), MOXF8: 14.8kg(32.6 lbs)) make it easy to carry the MOX to rehearsals or gigs and make them pound-for-pound the most powerful workstations Yamaha has ever made. Both models are 50% lighter in weight than the comparable MOTIF models.

Mr
I have dealt with Bavas music many times and have bought a digital piano, a guitar and numerous accessories. I have always found them to be courteous, professional with good product knowledge, and competitively priced. I've dealt with many music stores over the past 35 years and Bavas is the best I've come across. Thanks for such great service!
By Harry Kingaby of Coffs Harbour

mrs
nick from bavas ,wow what a fantastic experience of great customer service.Rang to find out about purchasing conferencing (MICROPHONES AND SOUND EQUIPTMENT) ADVISED ME ON WHAT TO PURCHASE AND TOLD NICK IT WAS URGENT AND HE HAD IT TO ME IN 2 DAYS ,COULD HARDLY BELIEVE IT AS HAD A BAD EXPERIENCE WITH A LEADING SUPPLIER IN SYDNEY WHO i ORDERED OFF 1 MONTH AGO AND STILL WAITING.So will only be going with Bavas for sound and microphones from now on.Great to to see an honest company who deliver on what they say.Great work. thanks from katie in the ACT.
By kate mcculloch of act

Mr
Very good site (but attention needed to some erratic "rrp/ price/ savings" numbers which are often absurd). I bought good gear at very good prices, with excellent service and help from Joanna (thank you). Delivery was very quick and accurate. Highly recommended.
By Ray Neuling of Adelaide

The Best
How do you start to write a testimonial when you are speachless for words. Nick and his whole crew let you know their best interest is you. Never Have I felt so secure in my purchase with anyone. I asked so many questions prior to the purchase of the myriad of equipment I purchased,that I made myself feel uncomfortable. In return I was recieved by a professional friendly team with plenty of advice and honest answers that got results. The knowledge of these guys is second to none, which is matched by the quality of equipment they provide. Not to mention the discount I recieved. After shopping around and getting a mountain of opinions that wern't consistant with one enother, I found Nick and his team to be the real treasure, not for the money that I have saved which is in excess of 20K. But for thier Service, honesty, integrity and wealth of knowledge. Not only do I have great equipment, Id like to think this is the begining of a lasting friendship. Thanks Nick
By Paddy of CMA Studios Queensland

Mr

Kurzweil PC7K
Found the Kurzweil PC3 keyboards here for a great price. Ordered, they were delivered promptly. Kurzweil aren't all that widely available in Australia - can I just say it is a fantastic keyboard. In Canberra and want to hear one? Google Zoopagoo and come to one of our gigs, I would be happy to show you mine.

Mr
Bought a $2000 PA system instore.....good stuff......but the salesguy led me to beleive that he was giving me a massive discount....only to find later that the price I paid was actually the price available to everyone online.......hmmmmmmmmm
By Mr of Sydney

Mr
I have bought from Bavas twice now for EV speakers (foldback, FOH and subs) and microphones. I have found their service to be excellent and their prices are great. We had problems with one of our FOH speakers and Nick had a replacement to our church in record time - it was no hassle at all. I would recommend these guys and I do not even bother to shop around anymore because you wont get a better deal. I would add that Nick is a great salesman in the sense that he knows his products, gets a good feel for what you are after, puts together a good package (without over selling), has it delivered promptly and provides good support. He will also work hard with suppliers to get you the best price he can offer. Keep up the good work guys it's a pleasure doing business with you.
By Rob Jamieson of Bathurst

Mr
Tony, thanks so much for your assistance with my Korg SV1, gig bag & Behringer monitors. Bavas is always a pleasure to deal with, always prompt, thoughtful & do great deals. Cheers Tony, I'm looking forward to receiving all my new gear over the next few days, thanks for making it all so easy!!! Steve.
By Steve Martin of Townsville

Behringer iAxe Metalien USB Electric Guitar
I can't compliment Bava's Music City enough for their service. After speaking with a very knowledgeable staff member (Mitch) I ordered the guitar online. Dopey me ordered the incorrect item, but Mitch fixed this without any fuss or bother. The Guitar was despatched promptly and was received exactly as described in excellent condition. I will use Bava's again when it comes time to buy the Amp and accessories. Thanks guys.
