The sounds and power of Yamaha's high-end MOX and MOTIF ranges, but lightweight, portable and built for the stage. Easy to use (let alone good value!) enough for a beginner, too.
Yamaha's Chris Irvine says: "In todays music making culture, the lines between producer, musician and DJ are all very blurred. The MX offers a one stop solution that lets you forget about which pigeon hole you fall into and allows you to focus on being creative wherever and whatever you are. As an instrument its portable, affordable and full of inspiration. The MX is way more than just another music
synthesizer, it's a complete music production solution."

Yamaha's MX49 Keyboard Synth is perfect for the stage, but won't be out of place in a studio or classroom either
With a synth engine built around voices from the MOTIF range, a USB controller keyboard, MIDI computer integration and bundled software like Cubase AI, the MX 49 is the modern musician's Swiss army knife.
Play along however your like: plug in a USB stick with audio or MIDI files, play tracks from a portable music player via AUX IN or stream audio directly from your connected DAW.
With the simplest user interface we've seen on a synth this powerful, and advanced Cubase integration, you don't need to be a great player or a technical wizard to make great music.
MX synthesizers come equipped with VCM effects, which simulate vintage effectors at the circuit level. The sounds of the ‘70s are brought back to life, through simulating the hard-to-find vintage sounds of equalizer, flanger, phaser, and wah effects introduced by the keyboard legends of the era.
Bi-directional USB Audio/MID Interfacing
But the MX doesn't just control software DAWs and VSTs; it's an audio interface as well. Just connect a USB cable to your computer and you can monitor all the sounds from your computer via the headphone output of the MX or listen to your DAW tracks by connecting the MX to external studio monitors or PA gear. The audio converters on the MX are made for professional music applications so everything on your computer -- even games -- will sound better when using the MX as the output. The MX interface is bi-directional so you can record the internal sounds of the MX directly to your computer, without ever going to the analog domain, for the highest possible quality.
Extensive Hands-On Controls for VSTs and DAWs
The MX also features solid knobs and durable buttons for controlling internal sounds, DAW parameters and VST instruments. The deceptively simple interface is combined with a remote template editor on your computer so any VST you own or any new VSTs you buy can be easily setup to be controlled by the MX. There are advanced integration templates for use with a variety of DAWs. When used with Cubase, there is even an AI knob so any parameter can be controlled by the large rotary encoder just by mousing over it. It's never been quicker to take full control of Cubase.
