Then they seem all in agreement to say that KX8 is crap. Rotary controls, thirty-seven different buttons and transport controls allow comprehensive editing of the templates and the included Cubase AI4 software. The KX8 comes with weighted keys. Complete compositions can easily be created with just one finger. There are not many features on this keyboard, it has a nice little built in menu, but aside from adjustments for the ARP function and a selection of 5 velocity curves, there wasnt much else to do in there. One more thing to note about the SLXP is that the buttons are black plastic and they can wiggle around in their holes and lightly tap the sides of the metal case surrounding them.

I felt the keys were a little heavy and they were not graded.

If you have additional warranty questions, please contact the manufacturer at There is almost nothing in there as far as electronics, which is fine with me, less to break. For those we have lost. Includes Cubase AI4 software.

If you’re looking for a complete music production solution, this is it. It would be nice for Studiologic to provide some sort of foam insert that holds the buttons in place so they dont wiggle around, but for the price of this yaamaha, I still cant complain.

What do these keyboards do? Originally Posted by DarkEcho. The KX Series enables easy song creation with its built-in arpeggio function.

With a range of drum, bass, guitar, keyboard and other musical phrases built in, you can’t go wrong. One complaint I had for the KX8 was that the case looks very sturdy and solid in pictures, but its actually just a basic black plastic cover. Thanks for an ywmaha post. It’s good for keyboardists but crappy for pianist. I just received the KX8 and I love it.


I’m sorry but you are completely wrong. And of sure, I don’t call arrogant who know how I know that I can’t compare a controller to a real piano, but as pianist I can compare a good mechanics with a bad ones Concluding: The only doubt in my mind is keyboard action quality – is the Fatar so much better than the Yamaha?
