I thought the Montage8's keybed & sound quality were significantly better than those of the MOXF or MOTIF. The Montage is inspiring piece of kit. That was tough to tease out in videos or spec sheets but was obvious after about 5 seconds of noodling with the synths.
That said, the Montage is incredibly expensive and the MODX shares a lot of the features; I hope it bridges the gap for regular people.
It appears the MODX gets the excellent Montage touchscreen and menu system. The Montage sound processing is different. The MODX has a different keybed without aftertouch (the MODX 88 keybed is GHS whilst the smaller boards have different keyboards). Maybe you can trigger MODX aftertouch with a footpedal.
